I like skiing so I guess I like to experience snow. I always enjoy a fresh snow fall. But after a few days it turns into a dirty snow - you know the kind of muddy mess, with the plow banks covered with exhaust dirt.

I prefer to be able to leave it upon will. Southern California fits that description pretty well.

Seattle because it has the best summers. It's like California summers, but clearer and less "dusty" feeling. Winters almost never get too cold. Falls and springs are beautiful and distinct, but do run together with winter a bit, though I don't mind that part. Variation, but never too hot and never too cold. The overcast winters are beautiful too and the mist, drizzle, light rain, and mizzle is great.

I like places that are mild enough to grow palm trees, not too wet, and not too hot and sticky. Of this list, I'd say San Diego is #1, and San Francisco #2 (although I'd say greater Bay Area as a whole is much sunnier and warmer than SF city limits). I probably wouldn't like the other cities too much.

Plenty of palms in Seattle, too! They look tacky as hell up here though and stick out like sore thumb.

I'm too late to vote officially, but I'd take the weather of Minneapolis first, among the somewhat limited choices.

Denver for me, although San Diego and St. Louis are climates that I like.

Minneapolis, for sure. For me, at least one huge 16 inch snowfall per winter is necessary.

7. New York City
8. St. Louis
=9. San Francisco
=9. Minneapolis
=9. Seattle

How mild the Winters are is very important to me (I need warmth so Miami would be the best option lol), how hot & humid the Summers are is also very important to me (the first 8 cities [except for SD] all have hot & humid Summers).
San Diego has a very mild winter. It rarely drops below 60. A little bit cooler is the winter is a lot better than having hot nasty hot humid and rainy summers IMO.
