Milwaukee for the win!
Lol accurately describing Milwaukee as having an average daily high of 32 in December, 29 in January, and 32 in February is not Hyperole, its fact. Its also a fact that such cold temperatures for a major city are rivaled in only a few places in the world.

Anyway, I find 90 degrees in September to be horrific, it should never be that hot nor should July ever be that hot. Oh, let's not even mention the horrid summer low temperatures in Kansas City compared to Milwaukee, so hot you can't even get a decent rest without having to run the AC most of the time to combat temperatures that are often 75-85 degrees at midnight WITH HUMIDITY! Milwaukee almost always cools off into the 60's or 50's at night in the summer as it should be.
You're horrified anytime you aren't snowed-in to your cabin.

AC = Cheap
Heat = Expensive

Perhaps you’ve never had to cool a house down south.
Trust me, electricity on that scale is in no way cheap.
Besides, heat can be far more natural, like wood, rather the crazy chemistry experiment of a/c.

Laughably ridiculous. If you think that 32 degrees is frigid, I guess you need to move to Miami. 32 degrees is downright balmy for any number of cities.

Certain people on C-D are delusional regarding 4-season continental climate. Either ignorant or boosting their own interest (promoting certain locations for personal gain)

Wisconsin climate is a continental climate, 4 seasons, plain and simple.

32 degrees is 32 degrees, for some feels frigid for others not. My personal opinion, is ridiculous.

No, they don’t know how to build quality well insulated houses in most of the South. When I lived Up North previously my heating costs were very low because I had a smaller ICF designed house with R-60 insulation. Average winter heat cost supplemented with some wood was $150 a month. No AC needed in the summer except for a window unit occasionally.

Dayton is only an hour's drive (or less) from Cincinnati and Columbus.

Exactly, lots of "city" things to choose from a short drive away in both directions.

Wisconsin has relatively high income taxes and property taxes.
