You dont ever need to reach subzero temps to be considered cold in the winter. 20F is pretty darn cold. Seattle is colder and wetter than Sacramento/SF in the winter. We have never gone below 0F either. But we don't consider ourselves subtropical.

Miami is extremely humid in the summer, when it's 85F it feels horrible, no need to reach 100F to feel hot and uncomfortable in a humid climate.

OP, I laughed. Good job, well done. Anyone arguing with you simply didn't get the premise of the post.

I live here, and definitely see palm trees- a fair number of people do plant them in their yards. There is one house in my neighborhood that must be people who used to live in California or somewhere else down south, because they have a whole row of palm trees along the front of their house.

Sure palms are not native here and they are not extremely common, but just driving around randomly I always see one or two places that has palm trees.

Totally agreed. The Pineapple Express went whooshing over a lot of heads.

Sacramento is 1% overcast in the summer, yet we don’t consider ourselves subtropical. Seattle is nice in the Summer, but not subtropical.

Our Sacramento gardens are still producing melons, tomatos, and our citrus tress are full of tangerines and lemons. Banana trees in Seattle, No to the Yo.

Agreed. I thought surely everyone would get the joke just by reading the thread title.
