Hurley has a good climate for those of us that prefer real winters with snow. There are many areas of the Northwoods that have a colder and snowier climate than Hurley.
Edit: That record coldest temperature of -36F is mild compared to the -55F lowest temperature recorded in Wisconsin at Couderay in 1996 in Sawyer County.

Humid deserts, like the area near Yuma, AZ. Humidity is fine if it rains a lot, like in Florida and Hawaii. But high humidity plus little precipitation is the worst of both worlds.

On the other side of the coin, a wet subarctic climate like Juneau, AK.

Agree Winters should be cold, snowy and long enough to enjoy plenty of time enjoying the season!

Hurley looks like it has a great climate and I like its summers better than the summers where I currently live if the averages are accurate

IMO the Northwoods climates are some of the most underrated ones in the US.

LMFAO.
It gets less votes because a lot of people have never been there.

It's actually the opposite. People buy into the stereotypes about Oklahoma weather. It is prone to tornadoes but not that much more than the other plains states or even the deep south and Florida. It's not blazing hot all the time in the summer (It's 81 degrees today). it doesn't hail every day, the winters aren't freezing cold and snowy all the time. The wind doesn't blow constantly.

Generally Oklahoma weather is nicer in the summer than any place that is warmer in the winter and is nicer in the winter than places that are cooler in the summer. OKC has lots of nice days.....

Like today. (81 degrees and dead still). Enjoy your 96 degree day down there in Austin.
