Edinburgh appears to a pretty crappy place for snow, from what people there have told me.

It is. The record snow depth for the Botanic Gardens weather station is 22cm, from 2010 (I think). The previous record was only 8 cm (on several occasions)! Other parts of Edinburgh may well have gotten more snow than the Botanical Gardens, but I was shocked when I found that out.

I think that Edinburgh often misses when the rest of the east coast gets snow, because it is in a coastal inlet. Glasgow misses out a lot as well, because the snow tends to be blocked either by the mountains to the north, or doesn't make it this far west (as the snow usually comes either from a northerly-to-easterly direction).

I think washington's weather is a good balance for the usa. it's a nice warm temperate climate. get's all the 4 seasons but summers are stronger than the winters which is how the usa is as a whole.

Mohe County. From my own calculation, Mohe looks like it gets ~69.2 cm / ~27.24 in of snow on average. May seem a bit meager, but snowfall doesn't matter when you're looking at a mean temp 4-5 C from Yakutsk.

Though it was not chosen for this reason, many meteorologists consider that Canada's capital of Ottawa has a "classic Canadian" climate. Obviously there are colder and warmer places, but if you average out the conditions of most of the populated areas of Canada, Ottawa has the closest thing to a typical Canadian climate if such a thing can be defined. Other places that would be in this classic Canadian climate range would be Montreal, Edmonton, Fredericton...

This climate is characterized by cold and snowy winters and warm to hot summers.

If I lived in the USA I would move the Capital district to Denver, the city seems to have a really nice climate despite it being semi-arid. I'm guessing humidity is lower than Washington DC because of the low average lows in all months.

Wetwang, East Yorkshire.
It's only a small village at the moment, so giving it captial status would give the place a much needed confidence boost. Let's face it, nobody wants a small Wetwang. Make it capital and watch the place boom. There would be a need to erect some large buildings to accomodate all the extra people.
I know I'd prefer it, and I'm sure even owen would also prefer a much larger Wetwang.
