Which would you choose?

Sochi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hobart - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I think I'd have to go with Hobart as the winters are milder and much less chance of snowfall not to mention much drier too

Sochi, Hobart is too inconsistent and changeable year round.

Tough choice. I prefer Hobart's summers, but I'll go with Sochi for the higher rainfall.

Sochi easily - much warmer in the summer.

Sochi by far. I couldn't stand Hobart's subarctic summers.

Sochi, if the sun hours are correct. I thought it was around 1900 hours for Sochi last time I checked. It seems to have gotten an extra 250 hours just lately.

Hobart for the cooler summers, even though the winters are a little warmer than ideal.

Seriously deneb?! You would sacrifice a whole summer and get months of endless cool crap, including chilly summer nights and so on, just for a couple of extra degrees in winter?

By the way, Sochi is indeed drier, but it rains way more often in Hobart, which means drizzle...

Sochi gets my vote.

Sochi : C
Hobart : D+
