age after 30 =) looking for advise. Thanx !!! Criteria :

1. Big city with music and many outdoors (with >35 age people) activities and kinda europe style streets
2. No super humidity (No Texas and Florida)
3. Maybe 2 weeks -5 weeks winter max or without winter at all
4. Scenic thunderstorms like in Orlando / St PEte Florida (yea i love it ) and summer sky like in this cities

Is it real ... troubles in California )... many people have melancholia probs or some thing like this in beaty cool state becouse summer sky stagnation
NEW ORLEANS

Storms every day at 5 pm there in the summer, it's like clockwork. Tons of thunder and lightning and the storms are generally short, leading to a peaceful and serene summer evening.

Humidity = storms buddy. That's just a fact of life. Coming from a desert rat who longs for a summer storm I don't think I'll ever see, in our monsoon season when I am supposed to see them, and I have zero humidity.

How about Tucson? It does get quite a few thunderstorms in the summer.

No, it doesn't. Tucson hasn't had a single summer storm since the end of June and it's monsoon season, it's supposed to storm like all the time. It's BS. Last year's monsoon season was ridiculously weak too. I miss the rain so much

Believe me if you want storms overall the West is not where you want to be.

Well the fact that NO has super humidity means they don't make the cut. I'm with him when it comes to thunderstorms. I love them. Sleeping weather too.

You might like Denver.

1. Yes, except for the Europe-style streets, but it does have a grid layout.
2. Yes, yes, yes, and yes.
3. Long winter but fairly mild. Little bitterly cold weather, lots of warm, sunny days interspersed with the snow. https://www.wunderground.com/
4. Great t-storms in the summer, lots of rainbows.

You can't have a short winter, fabulous thunderstorms, and no humidity.

It's a beautiful, enigmatic city. Can't wait to visit it again this fall! I don't visit in the summer though - its too hot and humid.
