You were just as antagonistic in the other weather thread.

I get that you love Texas, hell, I lived there for 30 years, but there's a world outside of Texas, and maybe Texans need to know that at some point.


And if Denver is like any place in the world, what makes Tyler so special?
LOL I'm not even from Texas. I've lived in Europe, Asia, and several regions of the US. So yeah - I'm aware there's a world outside of Texas.

As for the rest of your post, meh. Some people like northeast Texas, some don't - that's fine.

I like the one in New York that over looks Central Park.

Yep, I LOVE me some Maryland weather! Pretty much four equal seasons of three months each = got some cool, rainy springs, some hot summers, crisp fall days with lots of fall colors, and a bit of snow several times during the winter. It's great! Of course that's just my personal opinion.

I'm really looking forward to the next few days - lows in the 30s and 40s - great porch sitting around the fire pit, and hot tub weather!

We just got back from visiting family in Ohio and wow, the fall colors are amazing up there - pretty much at their peak. They are just now starting to turn here.

Obviously not fine with you, but carry on. And even though you're not from Texas, you are a Texan, so naturally, like 95% of Texans, you flip out at any perceived slight of your state.

Honey, I'm not flipped out. I'm just stating that I think the weather here this fall has been and continues to be gorgeous. You don't like it, I do. OK. I'm glad you don't live here and glad that I do. Like I said, everyone wins!

And yes, I do consider myself a Texan - thanks for the compliment. Though I do hail from a place that's consistently hotter and muggier than East Texas ever could even dream of being - New Orleans. Laissez les bon temps rouler! Now THERE'S a place with no significant winter. Four seasons - Summer, Still Summer, Almost Mardi Gras, and Mardi Gras.

By the way, it's 49 degrees right now. Here's a picture from last night (to be repeated many, many times over the next 7 or 8 months):

What baffles me is that the people who like Continental or Oceanic climates act like that is the norm, when the majority of the world's population lives in the tropics and subtropics

There is something trendy almost 'hipsterish' to like cold climates these days in the USA. Especially online.

But as it's true for most likes. A lot of it is controlled by prevailing culture. In Russia for example, a lot of the people will claim they love hot climates, beaches and when they go to places like Thailand, they will lay out in the sun without sunscreen and get severe sun burn which they then bring back home as a badge of honor.

Whereas in a lot of Asian countries, the people hate heat, and avoid the sun like the plague. A lot of Chinese travel to Greece in December, as an example, and while this is to avoid the prices of high season, they also proudly say that avoiding the sun and heat is an added bonus. A friend of mine who AirBnBs his place in Santorini says he's booked solid through the cold/rainy season by Chinese tourists.

All of which can be explained by cultural norms that somehow made themselves widespread in the cultures.

El Paso Texas gets my vote. Dry, warm to hot but not too hot summers as in Phoenix, a taste of winter and a short rainy season in the summer.

It's falls are as perfect as it gets! It really has to be the best climate in the US

Denton is getting below freezing tomorrow night (and we are getting a snowstorm lol) I am not sure if Tyler will too, but that's impressive for Texas so early in the season! Damn, why couldn't that happen last October? Last October I was dying in Texas it was way too hot. Was a crappy fall. Looks like y'all are having a nice one! Ours has been nice too but August made a return in late September and November has invaded the last week of October. Oh Well! Colours were amazing and theres still some left, I am not complaining
