I forgot to post my climate grades for each, so here goes.

--Winter 1/18 (huge points off for very cold temps, but sunniness and low humidity protect the final point)
--Spring 18/18
--Summer 13/18 (small points off for extreme temps, huge points for low humidity)
--Autumn 3/18 (huge points off for getting cold before Winter)
--Average 8.75/18 (D)

--Winter 6/18 (huge points off for humidity and slight cold, plus slight dreariness, but above-freezing averages and ability to grow palms and pansies save it from a low score)
--Spring 17/18 (small points off due to volatile weather patterns in March)
--Summer 10/18 (huge points off for high humidity combined with heat)
--Autumn 10/18 (huge points off for extended summer heat followed by humid cold)
--Average 10.75/18 (C)

--Winter 9/18 (huge points on for warm winters, medium points off for slight dreariness, small points off for frosts)
--Spring 18/18 (due to very mild days)
--Summer 18/18 (due to very mild and dry days)
--Autumn 18/18 (due to very mild days)
--Average 15.75/18 (A)

Thus, Eureka wins easily if you go by climate alone. However, in a competition for every factor on where I'd rather live, poor Eureka wouldn't stand a chance against Nashville due to not being a major city (why I voted both in the poll).

My grading system for climates, road quality, etc.:
--A (Pass): 15.25/18 to 18/18, Excellent
--B (Pass): 12.25/18 to 15/18, Pleasant
--C (Pass): 9.25/18 to 12/18, Acceptable
--D (Fail): 6.25/18 to 9/18, Unpleasant
--E (Fail): 3.25/18 to 6/18, Dreadful
--F (Fail): 0/18 to 3/18, Torturous

P.S.: Input still welcome and sought!
