Austin. The other place is absolutely unlivably bad.

I really can't decide. Austin is way too hot, Longyearbyen is way too cold (I dislike heat, but high 7C in the warmest month is too much).

Austin being the lesser of two evils, but only by a margin.

Austin. It's too hot, but Longyearbyen is far too cold and devoid of interesting weather.

Longyearbyen has a far more tolerable climate if we're only comparing summers. I can barely stand our level of heat and humidity in summer, let alone Austin's. I'd be miserable 99% of the time in summer in Austin. Plus, it looks like snow would sometimes happen in summer in Longyearbyen.

As hot as Austin is, looking at historical data the heat indices are not much different than Florida on a typical summer day. It is very dry.
