Last winter was very mild. If every winter was like that, Chicago would be 50% bigger.

However, that was not a normal winter.

Lest we forget the polar vortex winter that was only what, 4 years ago? We had many sub zero days, and a few days where the non-wind chill temperature was below -10, and the wind chill was in the -40 range. And we had about 70 inches of snow.

That was also an anomaly.

But to say Chicago doesn't get cold anymore is simply not true.

Worst climate is a tough question. Maybe Fargo? Buffalo?

While PHX has horrible heat for very long stretches and I do not like that climate, it has 6 or 7 very good months and can't imagine saying it's the worst climate in the country.

December 13 is fall not winter.

Visit from January 15 - February 15 when it's cloudy, windy, snowy and everything outside is frozen solid 24 hours a day.

I don't think the majority of people would say the same, though. There are many much colder and yet still snowy cities in the Upper Midwest.

Syracuse, Buffalo, Fargo, Chicago, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Des Moines, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Rochester, Youngstown and Juneau, Alaska all look balmy compared to Hurley, Wisconsin.

Average high in January is 19 F.
Average low in January is 0 F.
Average annual snowfall is 165 inches.
Record low temperature is minus -36 F

Terrible climate areas, too far south with a sun angle that is unbearable for me.

I prefer Saranac Lake climate over Syracuse, it's like having a Nordic outpost in the US similar to Scandinavia.
