I like having cold, snowy winters and warm, humid summers with a good amount of storms during summer....so a place like Chicago or Minneapolis would be ideal for me

Perth, Sydney and Adelaide are all icy cold compared to Dallas or Houston. Sure, Dallas has slightly colder winters, but a Dallas or Houston summer craps all over Perth, Sydney and Adelaide.

Sydney is just beautiful. I understand it might not be as hot as Perth but Manly is beautiful
Good for you , can totally understand how Sydney's weather/beaches can appeal to a Londoner. We've got the annual influx of backpackers from Europe/UK flocking in now for the summer season.

Not really. Dallas' winter is more than just slightly colder than those cities. Their winters are warm compared most North American cities, but it would probably be freezing to most Australians. It's cooler than Melbourne in the winter. They get a few ice or snow storms each winter. However, the summers, particularly this one, are brutal like you like it.

I like the semi-arid, four-season-type climates near the Rocky Mountains. Cities like Colorado Springs, Denver, Boise and Spokane. I like Lubbock's climate well enough, but it's a little warmer than I would like. I want more snow and less 90+ temperatures.

Neither Dallas nor (especially) Houston see anywhere near the levels of sunshine that Perth (or even Adelaide) get in summer - and they are both humid, especially Houston. IT people in IBM and other companies refused to shift to Dallas until the air-conditioning era was properly underway. I'd pick Perth in a flash, and neither of the other two for any kind of money.

Extreme Heat is my type of weather. The Northeast/Southeast/Southwest US supplies this type of weather.

I choose Tampa, FL .

That is wrong. Obviously the stupid media can't get their facts right, as per bloody usual.

The actual high temp in Sydney was 24C. That 38C (38.0 exactly) was recorded in Evans Head, a small coastal village near the NSW/Queensland border - Nowhere near Sydney!!

Certainly got nowhere as hot as that thank goodness!

Sydney's hottest August day on record goes to 1995 with 31oC.

Maximum yesterday (to 9am today) was 23oC but that was in the early hours of yesterday morning, in fact the temperature dropped progressively to be 17oC by 5pm and was overcast (from mid morning onwards) with afternoon and evening rain.

(Yesterday, Monday 24th) - Parts of the North Coast (of NSW) exceeded 35oC with 35.5 at Lismore; 36.7 Ballina; 36.1 Yamba and 37.6 for Evans Head. Mungindi recorded 37.8oC - highest ever August temperature for anywhere in NSW, more details on the link: Summer days in winter continue to break more records in NSW

Note how previous highest temperatures prior to this one were broken by a margin of up to 6 degrees in some cases!
