Actually, your weather might be a little nicer than mine.
Not only are your summers warmer,
but your annual average high is higher as well as getting twice the sunshine.

The warmest part of the day being warmer would be nice for a walk outside and even though the morning lows average lower,
many people are still asleep at the coldest time of day.

Mitchell, SD is only looks worse for it's cold snaps and perhaps extreme wind.
It would be less frustrating to be a gardener in Toronto since our weather is more stable,
but this stable weather can also be a drag when it's predictably cold and cloudy
and you can't wait for the first afternoon of the year in the 70's F.

I'm a fan of perpetual warmth and sunshine and especially hot nights (which are really only found in the tropics). I love heat and don't find consistent beautiful weather "boring," other than enjoying partly cloudy days more than clear blue days because it gives me something to look at. Rain and snow, forget it. I'll admit thunder is cool though.

From my searches, I've found the best climate in the world is possibly on the Cape Verde islands just off Africa. Or maybe the Canaries. Mid 70s in the winter, low 80s in the summer and relatively dry. 65-70 I can tolerate. Below 65 is too cold. I'll vacation to the cold if I ever miss it (fat chance).

Below 65 is "cold"? You'd freeze all but July and August (maybe the fringe summer months of June and September too) in Seattle.

I think below 40 is too cold, and above 90 is too hot, but 60-80 is where I'm most comfortable. The rest outside that range is tolerable.

I'd say Tokyo has the best weather (as well as the best, well, a lot of things). Four seasons with no snow (I hate snow, but even more I hate constant rain/drizzle, and REALLY hate getting boring old rain when in other places it's snowing). Hot, but not obnoxiously hot in the summer, mild (40s and 50s) in the winter, and perfect temps in Spring and Fall.

Right now, unfortunately, I'm living in probably the worst possible climate for me.

I'd love to live in either Perth, Sydney or Adelaide. Or Dallas or Houston. They all have hot weather and I love the heat. Not like London which is cold and grey all day long in the summer. Slightest bit of warmth we get and they call it a heat wave here. I'd love to be a weather presenter. In the UK they get so cheery when the weather hits 70. I'd be depressed-looking on the tv until the weather hit 105 but this is london so we'd never hit that

Perth is by far and all the best for summer heat. Sydney does not get as hot as Perth but the humidity would have you think otherwise.

Sydney is just beautiful. I understand it might not be as hot as Perth but Manly is beautiful

Mediterranean climate is hard to beat (although I would need to spend 10 min every day to bathe myself in SPF 100 sun block before leaving my house).

Summer has mostly sunny days with an odd storm
Winter has rainy days with suny breaks in between the wet days
This is the second post I have seen about weather in Australia. I thought it was always pretty nice there; guess I was wrong..you too have your fair share of variances in the weather.

I live in Connecticut, USA more or less the central part of this state, East Coast of the United States and our weather here is quirky to say the least. This summer came to us later than normal and right now we are in the middle of a 7 day heat wave with temperatures in the high 80's to 95 degrees with lots of humidity. The heat isn't the issue as much as the humidity is. Further North in Maine they would call this "dog days of august". Everyone moves slower, people flock to the beaches or stay in their Air Conditioned homes.

In the fall, the weather here is ideal. The sun is higher and temperatures moderate probably to the 60's some days in the 70's in early fall. As late October and November come around, it starts getting much cooler at night and perhaps by Thanksgiving it is in the 50's and in some instances I have seen it go up in the 60's..not often.

Now, comes my time of year..Winter!! I love the winter. The temperatures go way down, at times it can be below zero at night and only in the 20's during the day. My theory about winter is you can always put on MORE clothes but when it gets hot in the summer you can only take off so many before you run the risk of getting arrested.

I do like the varying temperatures, the change of seasons that is so totally noticable; all part of being a true New Englander.
