Ok, I'm wrong. Hopefully more people will now want to move to Phoenix instead of California.

The difference is in D.C. a lot of people walk places, use the metro/public transportation and dress pretty formally a lot of the time and are less likely to have pools. Plus factor in the urban heat island effect.

Ah, this old debate. It isn't Vietnam or Thailand, but the areas I mentioned get consistent dewpoints over 20C in the summer, most people consider that humid

Europe's faux humid climates are simply areas that couldn't fit properly into the Med, Oceanic, or continental climates that make up the rest of the continent.

Race/orgin doesn't always dictate climate preference, but it certainly does play a role, whether through Black skin being more heat tolerant, or Blacks and Asians having more experience in designing architecture, clothing, etc for hot humid climates.

For large cities I'd say Minneapolis. Can get ridiculously and dangerously cold. Spring and fall last a few weeks (ok not literally). Summer averages aren't bad but with the right winds, they can get mid to upper 90s with dewpoints in the 70s, lows in the upper 70s. No thanks.

Upstate New York cities have had 120" of snow this year, very little sun, and it's extended now into May almost June.

From November to May thus far, it's been awful. Haven't had more than two or three days of nice sunny weather in probably 7 almost 8 months now. Do people really how ****ty Upstate New York is?

High of 55 today and showers. It's been a below average temperature May and extremely gloomy. Winter's are gloomy enough.

It's honestly the worst place to live. Lack of an economy or fun cities (Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany), gloomy for months on end. At least Seattle and Portland are booming in comparison and have world class scenery.

Can't wait to move outta here. I wouldn't wish Upstate New York on my worst enemy. It's brutal.

According to the US Census out this week....Phoenix is number 1 in growth in the entire United States of America.

Phoenix has officially past the city of Philadelphia and is now the 5th largest city in the country.

A fiery hell MUST explain your pain of realizing this but you're not alone. .....20 million of your California friends are suffering from this too.

When it comes to heat, the wind and sun make all the difference. I don't find the humidity to matter as much as all those calculated heat indices claim.

Right now I'm in Belize, Ambergris Caye, and it's 85 degrees with 85% Relative Humidity. According to the Heat Index, it feels like 98 degrees.

But, it's windy, cloudy and rainy, and feels much cooler. I'm supposed to go scuba diving later, and don't want to because it's on the cool side. Definitely doesn't feel like 98 degrees.
