135 days of rain AND snow. The rain figure is probably a lot lower due to dry winters.

Truly awful. Okay summers (although even these are marred by high rainfall), but that's it. D-.

What possible reason could you have for wanting it colder than that?

Voted D.
A bit harsh but this climate is borderline subarctic. Winters are not just frigid, they are also very long. Duluth in April averages are lower than NYC's March numbers. And I think NYC spring usually comes fairly late.
Summers, outside of July I guess, I fairly cool with downright cold morning lows. Sunshine hours are ok, though.

Can't spit iceballs. Water doesn't freeze fast enough.

I like the temperature extremes and reasonable amounts of sunshine...but, the summers aren't hot enough nor long enough to compensate for six months of winter.
