Which of these climates do you prefer? These two cities have almost the same latitude, above 31 degrees north, but their climates are very different, especially in terms of rainfall.

Alexandria, Louisiana easily. I couldn't take the dryness of Egypt. I'd probably off myself.

Plus, Alexandria, LA has a much better chance of snowfall, and cold snaps every winter. Plus a lot more thunderstorms.

Egypt. I'd hate the dryness, but it has much more tolerable and comfortable summers.

Despite that i can't stand the humid, hot weather in the summer i take Alexandria, LA here, for its higher chance to experience a real winter.

Alexandria, Egypt. The other one is too wet, and of course for me: Dryness >>>>>>>>>>>>> Humidity

Also, Alexandria (LA) has that annoying and unpleasant temperature range where it's like 13 in winters and 34 in summers - too continental for me. I cannot stand it. Most of the East Coast tends to have overly hot summers and cool winters with a lot of rain (not for me).

Both suck, but I'd go with Louisiana just for the winters.

Alexandria, LA by far. For the precipitation and variability. Dry is boring.
