I know there are some cities that have both, but I think most have one or the other. Which weather pattern do you guys think is better? Humidity and all other factors can be equal

both suck miserably, but I noticed that cold winters can shut down a city and there's not a lot of activity going on (even here in Memphis where the winters aren't bad) but hot summers (including the miserable ones in Memphis) don't shut down a city. In fact, summer is a very active season here.

I'll take summer over winter or a southern climate over a northern climate, thanks very much. I don't know if it's because of global warming or a weather cycle, but the past few years in the Northeast US has been miserable. Winter seems to arrive in November and last well into April, sometimes May. Spring is quite short (maybe 45 days) and then Summer begins. This past July in Philadelphia was as hot or hotter than Florida. With a southern climate one gets a longer summer, but a much more tolerable other 6 months of the year.

I'd rather be in hot weather if I had to choose one or the other but I prefer a place with true seasons - hot summers and cold winters.

I would rather deal with a hot summer and enjoy the rest of the year snow free.

Rather have a cold winter and enjoy all the winter activities and sports. 4 distinict seasons provide the best variety of year round activities.

I think if you track migration trends in the US, trends show that the majority of people prefer the hot summers over cold winters that the south offers, myself included. Having lived in both climates, I gladly put up w/the 2 or 3 months of extreme heat here in Columbia in the summer, for the nice weather the other 9 months out of the year. I mean it's going to be 72 & sunny tomorrow on Thanksgiving, it doesn't get much better than that! I remember a number of Thanksgivings growing up in Ohio, that we had to shovel the driveway and scrape the windows before heading over to the relative's house for dinner.

Buffalo Ny is famous for its freezing snowy winters, if your into snowboarding, skiing,snow snowmobiling then its a fun season. And i have heard it be called the Miami of the north, its muggy here in the summer and with the great lakes right by the beaches are great, along with car shows, nightlife its also a good time. I enjoy both =)
