Either way, California weather is more comfortable for the vast majority of people.
As long as you have a well-developed, soaking thunderstorm, then you will get dramatic relief from heat and humidity before the rain even shows up; the outflow boundary from the sea-breeze thunderstorms brings powerful gusts that completely cool down the atmosphere. The cool down is marked; temps can drop from the upper 90s to lower 70s in less than 10 minutes. After the spectacular soaking, with awesome lightning, the clouds hang around, covering the sun, preventing the heat from coming up; often times, the time of the storm can be such that the clouds hang around for the rest of the day, and into night fall.

If a thunderstorm is present during morning in Houston/Coastal South, then the entire day will occur without the sun's heat, and the high temp for that day can be as low as the mid 70F range.

California is comfortable only for specific groups of people; other groups of people like warm humid climates, as seen in the Southeastern USA.

Phoenix has more stunning women than most of the East coast cities. It's basically an extension of socal.
Not saying that California lacks attractive women, just saying that the humidity keeps the body looking youthful, and thus the women are more luscious, complete with strong definition (both in front and behind). Also, given all the stigma of how oppressive humidity is, people, upon experiencing such conditions, try to dress as lightly as possible, and so the women are going to be showing more skin...

After three or four summers, however, the sun starts to take its toll.

You're kidding yourself if you think more people enjoy the south's weather over coastal California.

When people talk about great weather California comes up the most often. A small minority likes humidity.
When I was in DC and Chicago I don't remember anyone saying how much they enjoyed those muggy days. It was more complaining.

The just put up with it .

Over 1 in 9 people from PHX area are from california also. If you don't believe me look at this video of Phoenix/scottsdale women...way better than east coast LOL.

I'm not mad, I'm happy. I moved from Los Angeles to Miami to enjoy what Miami has to offer. When I get bored of Miami I can just move back to Los Angeles.

The preference for the Med climate is pretty much an American phenomenon; go to Australia, South Africa, South America, etc, you don't see people going crazy over the Med climates in those regions. Instead, they see it as just another great climate.

In the same way, I find the Med climate a great climate, along with the humid climate of the Southeast. Both are ideal to the other climates of the US, and both offer great weather, but in different ways.
