I have lived in both. I know many people who couldn't take Chicago's long gray winter and when I lived in Florida, extreme humidity during their summer wasn't that great either.
But there is a lot of emerging evidence that warm weather is healthier for the body...and way less deadly than cold!

I developed severe hand pain in the midwest (which I never had when living inthe North east)

I moved back to Southern California and the pain has not reappeared.

That doesn't make me hate hot weather any less.

What specifically makes warmer weather healthier though? And how does it work? All it seems to say is that the mortality rate is lower in warmer climate areas.

Heat is the deadliest kind of weather, it is more deadly than Hurricanes, Tornadoes, and snowstorms combined.

Cold and hot weather can go both ways.
All I got to say is that as long as the sun actually shines throughout most of the year, then I'm there.

It's better for my sanity if I'm not in a warm place. Cold, clouds, and snow make me feel better.

However, I will admit that when I lived in the Mojave Desert, I never got sick. But I don't get sick too often anyway.

Then explain why many more people die from extreme heat than extreme cold? I hate the heat and it's also better for my sanity to live in an area where there are clouds, cold, and snowy weather.
