Have done work in Greensburg, Williamsport and many areas of PA between. Most of these jobs are about 30 to 50 mile long projects, and we walk that entire project. It may take 4 or 5 months to walk it but we walk every step of the way. And other than the hills getting taller and bigger from one area to another there was not much difference between Greene County and Wayalusing, PA. When you get to Allentown it starts getting flatter but still small hills and trees.

Pennsylvania is the top of the map.

Well, I mean you're right in a way, but it isn't quite the same. In Arizona, or California for that matter, you can go from 80F and sunny, to pine trees and blizzard within a short drive. I'm not aware of any other part of the US that's like that, maybe New Mexico.

Yet again, you can't help but be insulting.

Criticism is fine, but it's all in the way you say it. You don't have to be insulting. And your first post, and most certainly this post, are insulting. And as I'm a woman in her 50s, I'd rather not be addressed as dude, if you don't mind.

You could take away the Panhandle, North Texas, and South Texas, and the state will still be in the top 5 for diversity.

Now, if California, Oregon, Washington, and Arizona were all the size of Tennessee, they wouldn't exactly have the same level of diversity that they do now. Let's keep it real, folks.
That's a good point, but you could you cut out a small section of Arizona around Phoenix, and that area would contain everything from semi-tropical desert to alpine tundra. So within an area about the size of Tennessee you could have a little bit of everything. That's why Arizona still gets my vote.

Please. Lubbock has a metro of 290,000 and its average yearly snowfall is 10.2 inches. Give me a break. Talk about boosting Texas without foreknowledge.

She says not to be addressed as a dude, and you start your post with it again. Without capitalization also. And why post if you don't want people to worry about what you say?...

If you are going to have North Carolina, then you have to have Georgia. Very similar, actually.

The South Atlantic States (excluding Florida, and but including Alabama) have everything in the initial list except desert.
