In your opinion, which city's winter feels more "wintry" to you, Dallas or Hobart?

Hobart for the cloud.

Dallas also has much better chance to get above normal temps.

Hobart

Dallas has reached 35ºC in January, is that correct?
My city has only seen such temperatures in July and August, on the other hand those -17ºC have never been reached here. Continental climates are awesome for records.

Dallas gets way more snow and ice than Hobart though... Dallas gets snow virtually every year... far more frequently than Hobart

Still not enough to detract from the fact that Dallas has the potential to get very warm (it does every winter), is much sunnier, not as damp, and probably not as windy either. Those infrequent cold snaps are just that - infrequent and short in duration. Overall, Hobart feels more wintry - cool, damp, cloudy, windy. Definitely more of a wintry feel. I bet it feels downright summer-like in Dallas at times in winter.

You could enjoy snowsports more often in Dallas than Hobart even if it is only for a couple of days at a time

Hobart - Dallas can (and does) get warm in winter, while Hobart can't even get warm in summer - lol.

A note about Dallas snow...it DOES snow in Dallas, however the average annual snowfall in Dallas is 1.8 inches/44 mm - which might last a few hrs (if your lucky). Dallas has gone as long as 15 years with out a single trace of snow. So I wouldn't plan to much on "winter sports" in Dallas - lol.
