Yes it is similar. I think it is livable. Only winters are depressing in the terms of sunshine.

I'm so used to the ridiculously overcast winters I only laugh at them.

Hahahaha it is logic. You experience cloudy skies and short days many years every year so it is expected. :P But here too. Especially in Ioannina we have gloomy winters. A normal December for exaple here is around 60 hours in our latitude. -_-

^That's a bit extreme, don't you think?

I'll give it a D+.

Every season's just too cool, and a bit dry overall frankly. Decent sunshine though - C.

A beauty of a climate, by far the best in Northern Europe and possibly the best in Europe outside Russia. Winters just right, cool enough to sustain a snow cover for several weeks but never Arctic, and the cold doesnt drag too late into spring. Summers are just perfect for outdoors, 20C will feel quite warm with that amount of sunshine. 20C, 300 hours and 50mm or the East Asian 30C, 100 hours and 250mm- no contest, Mariehamn wins.

B+, no actually it makes A-.
