For example, i live in oceanside where its mainly green, but most of socal is not like this at all. ive lived here for 3 months, maybe rained twice total. im from upstate ny which is cold and snows a lot but green. San Diego is nice, im still unsure if this will be my last move. I'm on the fence between liking the stable weather and the beach climate and disliking the "brownness" of california, but i also enjoy cold weather and rain but dislike the snow. any suggestions lol?
Your view is a little skewed because you moved here 1) in the middle of a drought and 2) at the beginning of the dry season. SoCal gets rain in the winter, not the summer. In a typical year, not drought conditions, the hills are green and beautiful from about January through June. For half the year, in fact. Just a different half than you would experience in NY.

Of course we never get snow or the kind of cold conditions you can from, but this last year has been very unusually warm and dry--don't think it's always this way.

Being from California , i would say that the west has nice a mediterrian climate /desert climate. The only problem is that isn't sustainable and it's artificial. The lower Western US states i.e. Southern California, Arizona and Nevada doesn't have enough fresh water to support the population unless drastic measures are taken like desalizanition plants etc. I lived in Hawaii for 3 years and it not was for me culturally , but the weather is nice and tropical. I would have to choose the south tip of Texas the Rio Grande Valley because most of my family lives there , and I like the subtropical humidity.

The west coast can't be beat when it comes to weather.

Upstate NY/New England (relatively short Summer, best 4-season climate in lower 48)

Coastal PNW (rarely gets hot, plenty of rain)

Central Florida

I like humid summers with frequent lightning, and winters that are mild to warm but not tropical like Miami & the Keys.

Me too, except I'd put the West ahead of the South for weather. But the Southwest is the very worst.

I hate very cold winters and very hot summers so I tend to like Southern California's climate the best.
