Now hold on there, Mr. Weather Survey Man. Your original survey was for hot weather of 115F and cold weather with a wind chill of -40F. I prefer cold climates too, but 115F would be easier to live in and survive than -40F.

I love summer highs of 32C with 60% humidity and lows of 24C with 80% humidity.
For winter I love highs of 21C and lows of 10C.

The prominent weather blog here in K.C. is dominated by cold/snow lovers who clearly have nowhere else to be.

My personal preference is heat. I can handle 100 (F) much more easily than zero.

View myself as someone who prefers mesothermal climates to clearly cold or heat-dominated ones, something with an annual mean of 12-13C or thereabouts. I'm neither into places like Florida or lowland Arizona (heat-dominated) nor into places like Alberta and Scandinavia (cold-dominated)

Something like 28c/15c is ideal for summer for me, a degree of heat but not extreme, and with cooler nights, while something like 5c/-3c in winter, so that it can snow but temps are not so extreme in general. Places like Grenoble, or Asheville. I don't mind a bit colder winters, but would want to maintain mild transition seasons.
