Love Austin, but too damn hot. Liberal, but that's ok if you're from SFBA

I'll concede that the snow flurries in April can be a bit much..
When it snowed in Denver in April, I was a bit disturbed until I realized that we would be in for a long hot summer in June.

I still like my seasons.

I've had to travel extensively in harsh weather... digging the car out, wearing layers, etc. Also, physical health issues that are better in above freezing year round weather.


Is there such a place as a Austin with more of a big city feel? I like Austin...

Seattle. And their winters are mild. Doesn't snow often.

Seattle winters aren't that cold, but not the best place if you like a lot of sunshine.

I think highly of Seattle, and besides the winters it would be the winner...
Austin has the warmer weather, and similar "buzz" as Seattle in terms of it being a place where people want to be, but it lacks that big city punch to an extent.

If you can live downtown, you'll get what you need. Just don't live in the burbs.

Dallas, Houston or Atlanta might give you the big city punch with good job opportunities and warmer weather

SFBay is pretty unique to be honest. There's nothing really like it. Maybe somewhere in SoCal, or parts of northern ATL area.
