I can't stand heat and dry, or too much sun, so my climate here is great. Summer rarely gets above 80 and only lasts 8-10 weeks.

I prefer cold over hot, especially humid and hot. And though I prefer cool, I don't love excessive or long-lasting snow. PNW weather is perfect for me. I think the gray and drizzle is a good trade for avoiding extreme temperatures in either direction.

New Orleans... it sucks because I love that place. The southeast is just too much for me. Even DC was too much. Miami was OK by the ocean... but to some degree even Hawaii is too humid for me.

Can't do long stretches of hot and humid. AZ is fine. Houston, NO, Miami... nope.

I'm fine with most climates. But I wouldn't like to live in a desert climate, especially not a cool desert climate like in some high-elevation areas of the West - even a brutally hot desert climate like Phoenix is better than that.

I also would despise living in a subarctic climate. I like winter, but I need summertime too.

I can't breathe in overly dry air and I really struggled in Denver. My nose bled, my lungs hurt and my skin cracked on my hands. I'm sure that a lot of climates different from the ones we are all used to react with our bodies in tell-tale ways.

Too hot and dry, such as Phoenix.

Was in Vegas recently and didn't like the desert. I also couldn't do humid areas like you find in the South. Having my clothes cling to me sucks.

Extreme cloudiness such as Seattle and Portland. I lived in Everett WA for 4 years, didn't like the cloudy winters at all. Summers are nice though. Another area I dislike are humid, such as St Louis and parts of the south. Secondly, anywhere that's extreme cold such as Montana and the northeast.

Anywhere hot/humid. I'm a Florida native who left a long time ago, and I cannot stand that kind of weather. I can handle a 3-month hot summer, but not anything more than that.
