That said the amount of coddling of Syracuse on this tread displays an insane pro-north bias on this forum.
Imagine a Philly, PA vs Jackson MS thread? People would trash Jackson, while people are here defending Syracuse when in almost every objective measure (other than access to mountains) Atlanta kills it.

Where in Upstate NY were you living? Snowfall actually varies within its metros and the further east, the less snowfall on average. Life still generally goes on, as the equipment to clear it is available and it doesn't consistently snow all winter. It can get cloudy, but even that isn't all winter.

I don't think that's the case at all. The vast majority of people here have acknowledged that this is an unfair matchup but that doesn't mean that Syracuse is nothing but a speck on the map with nothing to offer. It's clearly the underdog here and people tend to have a soft spot for underdogs.

Yes I think people are being fair to Syracuse that it does offer a lot, but what I am saying is they wouldn't give similar credit to smaller Southern Cities other than maybe Asheville.

I don't know, as similarly sized areas like Knoxville, Chattanooga, Greensboro, Columbia and Charleston get quite a bit of love.

With this said, most of the Syracuse stuff stated is more of what may appeal to others based on what was mentioned here versus any real comparison to anything in Atlanta.

Binghamton NY. We have a tradeoff of less snowfall for less sunshine hours. I find that a winter in Upstate NY takes a huge toll on you between the cloudiness and the low temperatures. It wears you out mentally. I would sacrifice other factors in order to never experience that sort of winter again

That is why I encourage people to be active during the winter and for those that like outdoor winter activities, it may be more appealing.

I guess some may enjoy it, but I don't. I prefer outdoor activities like going to the beach or hiking in the tropical highlands. It is fun to have snow in December but after a month of cold weather I already begin to miss the sun and the warmth. By the time March and April roll around life Upstate becomes more like a chore than anything

I tell people to expect/be prepared for snow from after Thanksgiving to mid March. March and April can be tricky, as you can get a range of weather.

For those that like winter outdoor activities, there's downhill/cross country skiing within minutes of Syracuse and indoor/outdoor ice skating, along with winter festivals, Syracuse University Basketball, arts based events and other indoor activities, etc. What may shut many cities down, MAY delay things in Syracuse.


So, people may do this:
