I don't miss crappy winter weather at all. I don't miss high humidity at all...

Snow is nice for the first day then you really learn to hate it.

I've been all over the country (including Hawaii) and nothing beats the near perfect weather we have in Southern California.

In San Diego County - places like El Cajon, Escondido, Ramona do.

Yes I spent last summer here beginning the first of June. And other summers before that. And I lived my first three decades in Chicago where summers tend to be similar. I can endure a few months of over 70 especially with air conditioning. Actually, last summer was pretty nice. We didn't have a lot of really hot days.

One seemed rooted in sensitivity criticizing CA's climate. I think they're going to be more vocal about their professed on a thread title the way this one is.

Does it really matter who likes what? It's all a matter of preference. I don't mind if others prefer a climate other than my choice. It's a great big country out there. Something for everybody.

California is a lovely state. I have relatives there. I visit when I can. It's just not where I want to live because of the climate and other reasons but then I don't want to live in other states either or I would be there instead of here.

The OP didn't make a very wise choice in his title just assuming everyone would agree California had the best weather especially when he didn't bother to name what part of California he was referencing. In any case a thread with that title should have been posted in the Debate Forum.

Huh? California has some of the coldest summers in the country.

Coastal California does, which is only a few miles inland of the pacific. However while a small geographic area of California, it includes a lot of people. Most people in California though live where the summers average 80 or even 90+ for daytime highs.
