Climate A or Climate B?

Climate A Summers:

-ZERO rain, all summer long, every year. Every creek in sight dries up completely, all the hillsides turn brown and barren.
-Rainless summers raise the fire hazard (read more in the "Autumn" section)
-No rain all summer means cities in this region deal with terrible smog all summer long.
-No rain all summer means every summer this region enters into drought condition, and you'll be paying through the roof to water your lawn, and you'll definitely have to wash your car alot because it's so dusty outside.
-Not even a cloud in the sky, most days
-This region is only 60 miles from the ocean but receives ZERO breeze because mountains and hills fence it off from the ocean.
-The ocean averages a chilly 70 degrees during the summer. On very rare occasions, it might rise above 75 degrees. The beach is quite mild; highs average in the mid-70s. But NOBODY lives there, because it's simply too mountainous and removed from the urban core of the region that no developer wants to build there.
-Highs average in the mid-to-upper 90s, but heat waves are frequent, long-lasting, and severe; every year there will be a day or two that gets to 115+ degrees.
-The dew point is very low: 30-40 degrees, on average. Itchy, cracked skin, bloody nose, etc. are all normal due to the bone dry heat.
-Nights cool off dramatically: a 100 degree day in this area will cool off to a chilly 55 degrees at night. By ten o'clock it'll often be quite chilly, and everyone bundles up to watch any outdoor concert, fireworks, etc.

Climate B Summers:

-This location gets 50 inches of rain every year, about 40 percent of it falls during the summer (so 20 inches during the summer). This keeps the fire hazard very low, and the air is sparkling clean because it rains so often.
-For whatever reason, this region is an anomaly in that it has NEVER had a hurricane or tropical storm in recorded history.
-Despite the very flat terrain and heavy rains, this region is incredibly wealthy. Most people live in high-rises, and they have the best, cutting-edge, flood mitigation infrastructure in the world, so flooding is really a non-issue here.
-Although this region is about 50 miles from the ocean, the very flat terrain means that the sea breezes blow everyday.
-Highs average in the low 90s, but heat waves are almost unheard of. On overcast, rainy days, the highs hover in the low 80s. On sunny days, the highs hover from 95-100 degrees, but on those days, a thunderstorm will come in at 3pm and cool everything off by 15-20 degrees before it gets too hot. It never goes above 100 degrees, most years.
-Despite the copious rain, this region is still quite sunny during the summer, though maybe not as sunny as Region A.
-The dew points are very high, averaging around 77-78. Most sunny days feature highs in the high 90s along with 80-82 degree dewpoints. Your skin is wonderfully soft and you'll never get a bloody nose. And the sea breeze is always blowing, so it feels drier than the actual dew point.
-The abundant rain means that everywhere you go, you're surrounded by incredibly lush pine forests, bayous, live oaks, swamps, magnolias, etc. NO IRRIGATION NEEDED. You could turn off your sprinklers and your lawn would still be fine. You'll never need to wash your car.
-The summer lows (which happen right before sunrise) hover at 75-80 degrees, everyday, during the summer. Even at ten o'clock at night, it'll still be 85 degrees. Perfect for outdoor concerts, fireworks, etc. You could sit on your porch in a t-shirt, shorts, and sandals at sunrise and still feel pleasantly warm.
-Unlike in the region of climate A, where the ocean is chilly and no one lives by the beach, the ocean here features crystal-clear, 85 degree waters and sugar-fine sand. It's also reasonably developed and well-connected to the region; you can actually live there. However, unlike region A, where the beach is far cooler than the rest of the region, the beach here is really only two degrees cooler than the rest of the region. Hardly a difference.

Autumn and Winter will be coming up later.

I forgot to add a poll; please state which climate you prefer!

I'd need to see Autumn, Winter, and Spring conditions in these climates first before making a decision.

A climate battle is pointless without a poll.

Climate A Summers:
Climate B Summers:

I prefer Climate C:

Climate C: The 4 Seasons.
Take out that old Hagstrom map.
Take a yardstick. Starting from NYC. draw a line from NYC all the way to California.
Any location North of that line gets colder and colder.
Any location South of that line gets warmer and warmer.
Rest your butt on than line you just drew and experience 4 nice seasons.

But climate B, like I said, has never had a hurricane or tropical storm in recorded history, and the flooding risk is very minimal because it has the world's best flood control infrastructure.

It's still cloudier and wetter with hotter nights
