Interested in the real world difference in the weather of these two cities.
Climate wise, the difference is negligible - though both town have microclimates within them that can be different, mostly pertaining to elevation.

I like both towns and would raise kids in either - I do think Eugene has more going on than Corvallis (certainly more for 20 somethings esp if into the music scene), but Corvallis has more going on than the town I grew up in. So I doubt they'll be starved for things to do in Corvallis.

Hmm..The weather in Oregon(I live in Portland,when I'm in OR) has radically CHANGED. That area, has post 96 degree weather every week this summer, starting in Spring(I read the paper over my friend's shoulder,when we were out for lattes) which is amazing.Eugene & Lane county has DRIED UP, has a ten-yr. drought,we're looking at Oregon becoming just like California now; stifling HOT,NO RAIN, NO WATER, huge forest fires and smoke-filled air every day. Even Portland was hot, dried out for months.
