Tbh, Sacramento and Caracas aren't bad tho....but making hundreds of promotional threads on them sorta makes them look bad...Loool
I can make threads on whatever I please. Sacramento is where I currently reside and I like to make comparisons with it, because I believe the climate is a very comparable place among many and I like to see people's different options. Enough with your spam, it's getting old.

If you don't like my comparisons, why even bother posting? Nobody is making you post your opinion, but you obviously care enough to post something negative in my thread. Like I said, I can compare anywhere to anywhere, so stop flaming me, please.

Again, I have made a couple threads about it. Big deal. I'm not seeing the issue here. Is there a law on this forum stating I can't make multiple comparisons with one city of my liking?

No surprise, you like milder winters.


What's interesting about Albuquerque for me is that the city has a big elevation
range (roughly 4800 ft to 6300 ft) with many micro climates.
Average annual snowfall ranges from 6 to 8 inches at lowest elevations,
to almost 30 inches in upper elevations near the Sandia Mtns.
Even downhill skiing at Sandia Crest at over 10,000 ft (3100 m)


The western suburbs of Albuquerque come closest to Sacramento temps,
for example, the biggest suburb with 90,000 population, Rio Rancho.


RIO RANCHO vs SACRAMENTO


51/23....JAN......54/39
56/26....FEB......60/41
64/34.....MAR....65/44
73/40.....APR.....71/46
81/50.....MAY.....80/51
92/58.....JUN.....87/56
95/63.....JUL......92/58
92/63.....AUG.....91/58
85/55.....SEP......87/56
73/43.....OCT.....78/50
60/36......NOV....64/43
50/24......DEC....54/38


1981-2010 Climate Normals


Average highs are very close, lows are milder in winter in Sacramento,
afterall Rio Rancho is 5,000 ft ASL and winter is dry season, Sacramento winter is wet season.
Conversly, Rio Rancho summer lows are warmer, wet monsoon season in NM.

This is just so close, both would make me happy. Living 2+ decades in one and travelling through the other several times, it's the smog being downwind of the SF Bay Area that gives arid ABQ the edge over semi-arid / Mediterranean SAC. ABQ also sunnier in winter, though the warmer summer nights a minus for ABQ...SAC winter lows milder which is a plus.

ABQ = A- or B+
SAC = B+
