With San Diego, I always found it's "perfect weather" a few degrees below perfect. In the LA/OC area there's a thing called "June Gloom" when almost every morning is gray and cool, the sun makes it's first appearance well after noon, then the onshore winds come and cool things down further.
SD seems to be like that all year. I can't stand it.

Negatives of SA:

1. Horrible roads.
2. Horrible drivers.
3. Too many unmotivated slackers and not many highly educated.
4. Welfare mentality also seems prevalent here.
5. A dysfunctional city government that never has enough money.

Positives of SA:

1. Friendly, unpretentious pop. (except in Alamo Heights...but you'll probably laugh if you drive through).
2. Family oriented.
3. Low cost of living
4. Proximity to Austin
5. Relatively cheap land

I just could personally never imagine moving from a happening place like LA to SA. It's definitely going to be a hard adjustment. Good luck.
Having been born in La Jolla, I can say that Alamo Heights is so much better than San Diego. The attitudes and lifestyles of Southern Californians are reason enough to move to San Antonio. San Diego wins in overall beauty but San Antonio, mainly Alamo Heights, quality of life would be enough for me to live in Texas.
