Sounds like most of New Mexico. Of course it will still be in the teens and twenties in the morning. But a toasty 40 degrees by afternoon.
The New York State Thruway is not a U.S. highway. It's an interstate highway (part of the Eisenhower Interstate system). I'm talking about highways like U.S. 61 in Mississippi or U.S. 412 in Oklahoma. Those are extremely RARE in the northeast. I can't even think of any in CT, in fact.

For Minneapolis, I am actually jealous of Chicago's flatness in terms of topography. I wish Minneapolis was as flat as a table top like Chicago. Also, I wish Minneapolis area was more prairie like like around Chicago. Also, part of western Wisconsin being an extension of Lake Superior so Minneapolis would have its own "Lake Michigan". Basically make the geography of Minneapolis area more like Chicago's.

For Chicago, I wish its climate was warmer. More like a Cfa climate than Dfa. So a climate like St. Louis's.

For Seattle, I wish it was less congested during rush hour.

US 1, 13, and 30 go through Philly. Additionally, US 322 goes through suburban Philly. US 22 goes through the Lehigh Valley (Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, and Phillipsburg, NJ). US 6 goes through Scranton in Northeast PA.

Yes, but you're not understanding what I'm saying. I'm talking about U.S. highways that are ALSO divided highways with two lanes on each side and frequent U-turn openings and no exit ramps. Examples would be U.S. 61 in Mississippi, U.S. 412 in Oklahoma, or even U.S. 1 in Rhode Island. Connecticut and New England in general doesn't have these types of highways. Neither does NY, NJ or PA.

25% and 10%?
LA is about 36% Mexican , NYC is about 3% Mexican. Ofcoarse the Mexican population grew since the 90s, but still nearly 75% of hispanic NYers are Caribbean hispanic (Dominicans and Puerto Ricans) , and that ain't changing anytime soon; The Dominican population is continuing to explode since the 90s, the Puerto Rican population is starting to grow again compared to the 90s n 2000s when it was declining, the Mexican population is no longer exploding like in the 90s and 2000s much slower growth.... I1995 I'm beginning to think u obsessed wit mexicans, always tryna exaggerate their influence and downplay nonmexican Hispanics... But anyfu*kinways, like others said, back to topic

Living in NH I am pretty content, but the two things I would say I am jelouse of are Real mountains, yes the whites are great and offer a lot, but I would love to have some Rocky Mountain sized mountains somewhere under a 4 hour drive.

The other thing I am jealous of is the length of our summer. I wish it was 6 months long vs. 3. on the other hand I love all 4 seasons so that really isnt possible if you still want to have a "real" winter.

One thing I really liked about the pacific north west was how at lower elevations you had a very moderate winter that never got super cold, but if you wanted feet and feet of reliable snow all you had to do was drive up into the mountains.

Living in Upstate NY, about the only thing I'm jealous of is states that have a Chick-fil-a. That's about it.
