Thankfully by living in Texas I've never lived in a cold place, by both definitions.

I walked to school in central Wisconsin on a lot of mornings at -30. But the air was perfectly still, so the windchill was the same. The few cars that started left a trail of exhaust that just hung over the street like a microfog. No place I lived in Canada ever got that cold. I think a few mornings in New Brunswick it was -20, but never in Montreal, where about -5 was the lowest I saw. Ten years in Northern Michigan, and I'm not sure it ever went much below zero, but I was on the lakeshore and it got 20 colder 20 miles inland

Seattle, by far. People there might as well wear a sign that says, "I'll be polite with you, as long as you leave me alone and don't come near me."

No, Seattleites don't need to wear a sign. Eventually they will tell you in their own words. Unless they like you.

Wisconsin for me. The northern areas can have at least five months of low temperatures colder than -15F. -30F is also not uncommon in March for the northern highland region (Canadian Shield in geological terms).

Mod, turn your attention to your own post...haha. Read the OP though and you'll see that climate was not the subject of this thread

Denver...this is going to probably get in trouble, but screw it...it feels like most of these people are flesh covered robots. There is not the same level of sociability as back in the Midwest where people will engage with you and people are a lot more open to banter. There was a study, forgot the name and too lazy to look it up but if you go through this forum it is a link in one of the threads, that came out a few months ago that ranked Denver lower than Seattle with its infamous freeze for friendliness/sense of community.

Sidenote...LOL @ the people that didn't read what the OP wrote...

I saw on Bestplaces that the main complaint about Denver was that the people were lifeless and unfriendly. I've only passed through there on the Greyhound, but I will say that the city did seem like an extremely boring place and I don't understand why it's considered such an interesting and desirable place to live. Again I think it's because of the west coast real estate machine.

If I lived in Colorado I'd actually rather live in Fort Collins.

Denver and Seattle share a similar trait. Both tend to be made up of inward looking people, not particularly open to social dialogue. I can probably track this to both cities being frontier towns in the past 150 years. And many of the newcomers to Denver are the same as Seattle. Northern Europeans who tend to be non, or even anti-social. Of course, this is a generality, and both cities have newcomers who are friendly and want to blend in. But the darkside is that many who are native, and new to both areas, are more reserved than most. Denver will probably never admit this, but I believe it to be true.
