As for this thread, North Carolina without question from my weather mechanism point of view.
You have to go further south into Florida to even get to something like Auckland's hardiness zone(10b), by that point it's basically tropical. I like to take the stupid assumptions these people make and draw them to their logical conclusions which they often won't defend.

Sandshark's crap is even worse because their area(Motueka) is only zone 9a and a chilly oceanic one at that.

By the way he talks you'd think Motueka never gets below freezing when Motueka has average winter lows around the freezing mark.

I do mention skiing and snow on the hills very often. I also mention frost , but not so often because it's so normal here, so mostly just early/late frost etc.

It would be illogical for me to imply that where I am never gets freezing temperatures, because freezing temperatures aren't an impediment to growing citrus here.

BINGO!!!!!! I concur completely with that, it's the best way to be exposing nonsense for what it is.

I won't get into any of the rest, but it's nice to see great minds thinking alike.

What are the stupid assumptions? and what are the logical conclusions?

It seems "these people" includes me, but I don't know what these assumptions and conclusions are.

So you are getting on board with the logic dictating that Central Florida is less Cfa than New Zealand's North Island?

I had assumed that statement in the comment I quoted was referring to this comment:

It was, after all, the comment that falls in line with this:

If Emman85 could clarify that would be good. But this was always the impression I had when I quoted that comment.

Fair enough. Emman85 made the rather odd claim that I said there was no frost in my area, so had assumed I was one of "these people".

Who is talking about Central Florida and "Cfa"?
