As long as you don't venture out in snowstorms, and your roof is sturdy and preferably steep-ish, the Great Lakes are your best bet for avoiding natural disasters as much as possible.
Western sides of the Great Lakes don't get nearly as much lake effect snow. But they do get below 70 from time to time

I'm mostly kidding but only kindof.

Help me decide where to move!

I am looking for something with milder seasons, a family town, decent Real Estate since that's my job, nice people, good schools, not massively densely populated (like 1500 per sq foot is cool with me),..

Whatcha got???
Asheville pretty much fits all of that except for the 70 degree year-round part with a busy real estate market, nice people, very good schools, mildish four seasons and as a city with 85K in population certainly not massive population density.

Indeed...the fart west can be quite gusty!

I'd also check into surrounding highland towns like Waynesville or Weaverville.

It is also contributing to the economic failure of upstate NY. Other states drill with no harm to water, and if there is an environmental impact, they are made to fix it. It gets cold as hell there, with lots of snow, and yes it also gets humid in the summer. I've been there. Pittsburgh is probably better, and that isn't saying much, because south western PA largely sucks.

I'd say that there are other factors, but there are still jobs to be had for those that have the skills for the openings available.

I think it may be due to such storms of that magnitude being rare even for Buffalo.

Not Colorado. We've got everything on your list, although our alligators and pythons aren't loose in the wild but we do have bears and mountain lions. We also have devastating hail and the second highest death by lightning statistics in the entire US.

Try Juarez, Mexico. I hear it's very safe.
