Arizona - Too hot
California - not cold enough, palm trees
Florida - joking, right?
Hawaii - too tropical (palm trees) and hot
New Jersey - around the Princeton area
Oregon - Portland?
Texas - no for reasons #1 and #2

Lake Tahoe and Flagstaff aren't cold enough for you? They're both colder and get more snow than the NY area.

You missed the point of the topic (reading isn't just recognizing words but also comprehending them) and most of your non-answers rely on stereotypes that aren't true.

Arizona has areas high in altitude. Did you know that as you get higher up in altitude the temperature gets colder? And if you go high enough, you can even get snow! That one's a freebie.

California has very few palm trees. The vast majority of the state is too far north or too dry for them unless you really made an effort. Its incredibly diverse topography and north-south alignment means you can get a huge range of temperatures.

Hawaii has snow (look to the Arizona paragraph to see how). It's also not that hot along the coast and lower elevations since its location in the middle of the Pacific keeps it a lot cooler than other places at its latitude.

I lived in Hawaii most of my life, and dead serious I never saw snow in Hawaii. I know it was on Mauna Kea, but I didn't physically touch snow until I was in my teens.
