All my life I have grown up in big cities, I think both places are really sparsely populated, and I wouldn't want to really live in either. This four year sample of Upstate NY is enough to never make me want to return after graduation

It is certainly mild enough by my estimation, but I do have some Scandinavian ancestry and dislike the climate in most of the US. The Upper Midwest and the Pacific Northwest are a much better fit for what I prefer. I don't consider the temperatures to be even that cold until it is below -10F with a sustained wind. Therefore, as mentioned previously, the Twin Cities is mild most of the time compared to the Northwoods of MN, WI, MI, and adjacent portions of Manitoba and Ontario.

I honestly think you are looking too much into your ethnic background. I don't think it has anything to do with your climatic preference. My relatives are from Eastern Europe which is known for being cold and cloudy, yet I thrive in warm to hot weather and bright sunshine.

Not really. Bright direct sunlight bothers me greatly, I have light blue eyes. I had to put sunglasses on. High solar declination angle ruins a good chunk of the year for me at low latitudes in the US. I will not even take jobs in Florida, Texas, California, etc. I know my limits.

I have blue eyes as well, and blonde hair. Again, the high sun and warm temps of the SW don't bother me at all

What city has the worst weather climate?
Phoenix! It's like living in an oven most of the year.

Hyperbole, most years it's only Memorial day to mid September that is truly hot. From late September until mid May, we have the same weather as Ontario or Riverside, CA (but less rain and no marine layer).

Its an "oven" maybe a 1/3 of the year at very best. That hardly constitutes "most of the year".

For the OP's original criteria: Lower midwest or Great Plains.
Someone early on said Milwaukee and Chicago. Uh...no. Neither city is all that extreme in the bigger picture. Great Lakes cities in general aren't too bad except the ones that get a lot of lake effect snow.
They just don't have hot humid summers. A day or two here and there a couple times a year if that, does not constitute a hot humid summer.
