No more silly than your countless posts about Houston being a "futuristic subtropical paradise where air conditioning isn't needed to be comfortable in the summer".

Only except that description fits Houston to a tee, at least, far more than the OP's description of Seattle does.

Just face it dude, Houston is basically a slightly warmer version of Toronto's climate.

Speaking of misleading... go back and look at real feel temperature comparisons instead of raw temperatures.

This statement right here proves that you just don't have a clue. Anyone who thinks that Houston's climate is just a warmer version of Toronto's is just being intellectually dishonest.

Both cities have hot and humid summers and cold winters so what's the difference?

Houston having cold winters? How laughable. No one in their right mind would ever say that Houston has cold winters, much less think that it is similar in climate to Toronto!

Get back to me when Toronto starts growing large varieties of palm trees, citrus, sugar cane, and lots of other tropical/subtropical plants like Houston can. The average winter day in Houston sees daily highs 60F or warmer. The average winter day in Toronto is below freezing.

It really isn't as far-fetched as people here like to think it is.

For some reason, Greenwood AV N has a disproportionate share of the region's palm trees!

Actually, there are varieties of banana that grow here. They die back in winter but you have only to peel or cut off the dead part and new shoots come back every year. Despite the fact that windmill palms grow here, they look out of place.
