This thread has a beard by now but I'll reply anyway.

Southeastern CT. Normal highs in the Winter in the low 40's, 4 perfect seasons, temperate Summer weather due to the ocean.

Done.

I would definitely have to say that whoever referred to the Lower Midwest is wrong. St. Louis, Indianapolis, and Columbus average well below 35 degrees in the winter, usually with reasonable snowfall. All three cities can be unbearably cold, especially in January, and in the summer can be unbearably hot and humid. Coastal areas along the East Coast are definitely likely in this poster's ideas. I would think Atlantic City, New Jersey would be closest to what this person is looking for. I personally would say Seattle might be a perfect fit. It gets four distinct seasons, but in the winter it definitely doesn't average below 35. It sees little to no snow most of the time, and in the summer gets warm but nothing at all unbearable.

What four? Gray, a little less gray, nice most of the time but still kinda gray, and getting gray again?

60 in Atlanta. No humidity. Very windy. Sky is as blue as it can get. This is Fall.

Truth be told, there really is not a city that fits the bill for what this poster is asking. I can't think of a single city in the United States with four distinct seasons that doesn't hit extremes in at least one of them.

Any coastal CA county from Mexico up to Sonoma.

But there's earthquakes there. So, it's either, freeze, roast, or fall off into the ocean. Can't have it all.

This is too simple. Seattle or somewhere in coastal Pacific Northwest.

Just saw a special documentary about the Japan earthquake back in March. It was very well done and revealed that there is a very similar fault off the coast of Northern, CA - Oregon and Washington. It might best if the person looking for the "perfect" place for seasons consider another location.
