Hands down. I understand Alaska is big too and I've heard Delaware is small.

This entire topic is subjective. One can say they hate the climate of the northern midwestern states. While someone like me, having grew up in a maritime climate (western WA state), thoroughly enjoys the true 4 seasons of those states. I also enjoy the intense sun angles and heat of Phoenix, AZ. I very much dislike maritime climates, such as that of Western WA, western OR, Souther BC....

Hey, and Maryland is small too. But I don't think it's as small as Delaware...

I would say:

Minneapolis: Winters are cold as hell and bleak, Summers are as humid as being in say NJ.

San Francisco: Arguably "Chilly" year round, awful summer weather.

New Orleans: Extremely humid most of the year with little access to beaches.

NYC: Very cold winters, humid summers, pollen filled springs where everyone gets sick, rough seasonal transitions in general.

Its like the Texas summers had a baby with Wisconsin winters.
Surprisingly not as bad as most of the Midwest - Springs start up earlier there (Tornado season) and while it's not as warm as mild as Denver in the winter, it doesn't have *as much* of extreme winter weather as say MN or IA.

The worst weather is likely somewhere none of us live. I'm thinking parts of Montana and Idaho and Wyoming, North Dakota,add northern Maine to that list also. There is a reason that the states entire populations are like that of cities. Very Sparse and for good reason, elsewise people would have built them up far more than they already are.

I think depending on ones body make up the heat or the cold might be more tolerable. But one thing is for sure in this day and age especially TIME is of the essence. And the winter and cold climates are a real time stealer, warming up vehicles and scraping off and digging out of cars,roads is time consuming as is putting on all those freaking layers of clothes. A trip to the gym is like a marathon in itself just to get to the gym and disrobe just to workout, redress and head home. Not to mention the airport closures in snowstorms/icestorms (These are things that don't happen in summer) So without fail somewhere in the north will win for worst weather. the extreme cold does not last as long as the heat but when it comes knocking it's brutal, and generally less fun. Especially if there isn't a mountain to ski down.

I don't know why it bothers you so much that I love where I live. But I think it's pretty funny!

The high today was about 74 degrees with abundant sunshine. It was GREAT!

The heat and humidity in KC are infinitely worse than anything in the Upper Midwest. In terms of snow, most KC people react just like southerners and schools and some other businesses close down over a few inches of snowfall. The climate of KC is really the worst of the South and the North, but with none of the advantages of either region.
