And in many cases, the "paralysis" is due to lack of preparation as opposed to the amount of actual winter precipitation.

Well, answers to this question are staying INSIDE the US. This is a US forum.

Outside of the very expensive California coast, these have been the best answers to the question.

Maybe we're just heartier people...

And the CA coast was listed as an exception to this thread. So that leaves Seattle, Portland, Cincinnati, Nashville, and perhaps Atlanta to reach the parameters.

After years on this forum and you still haven't figured out that your idea of pleasant weather does not align with the ideas of the majority of people here? Places like New Orleans and Houston are considered 'moderate' by very, very few people.
To the average person a mild winter does not mean 'snow once every ten years', it means snow that happens up a few times a year with little to no accumulation with a few days or weeks with temps that might dip below freezing. Read the thread title.
