From now on, I'll just quote your posts and say "+1".

The sunshine difference between summer and winter is impressive. Just calculated the percentages and put them on Wiki. They range from 21% in January to 88% in August!

I have a preference for generic 4-season continental climates, but without it being too extreme on either side of the spectrum. My preference probably arises from living in one of the most boring, moderate climates on Earth.

That is quite interesting, about the percentage of possible sunshine. I like how there is a very clear demarcation between the seasons in every way. When I'm away somewhere that is very sunny, I do tend to experience a longing to see grey skies again. So by August, I'd probably be looking forward to seeing November.

I'm surprised at how unpopular this particular climate is proving to be.

I feel the same way about sunshine. It's not that unpopular, it beats mild London for example:

This climate has hot summers to displease cold lovers and cold winters for the heat lovers.

I give it a B, winters are great (fall is too warm though), and there appears to be more than enough snow to stick around for most or all of the winter. Summers too hot but the humidity looks to be low which makes them bearable. I'd prefer Erzurum's summer temperatures. Precipitation pattern is interesting, don't know if I'd like it, mostly the lack of summer rain and storms.

Eastern Turkey has colder winters than I expected, Ardahan is borderline subarctic and averages -16C in January with a record low of -50C! Colder than Moscow, though google says it is at 1900m which explains it.

C

The biggest negative to this climate is the high sunshine hours. Other than that, it's not too bad. Summer afternoons are too hot, but the lower humidity and cooler nights offset that.

People generally think that Turkey has a warm climate overall.Yeah It is true if we are talking about coastal areas and western part of the country but as you said, eastern part of the country places like sivas, erzurum,ağrı, ardahan and kars have a very harsh continental climate.
