Lately Northern Michigan (the UP) has had less snow, too! By Lake Superior yes they have had snow. South of US 2 by Lake Michigan not so much. Last winter, all winter long, NE Wisconsin had more snow than parts of Upper Michigan.

My choice is 0. Low 80's would be fine as long as the humidity is low.

I'm glad you could dig up those stats. I've found the NCDC data myself and since I haven't found any maps of this data I'm going to create one using the NCDC data.

0 for me. Maybe it would reach 90F once every 10 years or so.

Here is the map as promised. One can plainly see here that if one is to avoid batches of 90-degree days in summer, the pickings in the U.S. excluding Alaska are indeed slim. It's even slimmer pickings if one doesn't want to have a lot of 80-degree days or very warm nights. One can see here why I say that for me and people like myself, "Seward's Folly" is in fact "Seward's Godsend". The colors have meaning, as the designations of blue, yellow, red, et cetera, represent the degree of "badness" as dictated by myself. If you still don't know what I'm talking about, it's somewhat similar to the Homeland Security Advisory System colors.

The "3" circle in New England appears to be Worcester. 10.2 is the correct number for my current location; I'm impressed by the contrast.

The 0 in central NH is Mt. Washington at 6288 feet; it has never recorded above 72F. If you have time and it's doable, it would be more informative if you changed the icon of mountain locations to something else (maybe a star?) to avoid confusion.
