If you like seasons, forget it--there's only one. Some days are hotter than others, but for the most part its the same day after day after.... Big detractor?? Crowded, claustrophobic, expensive to live, few amenities other than the ocean activities.

I lived in California for a little more than a year. Like most of the west, climate is dependent on elevation, and in California, the ocean. I lived just outside Phelan, CA. We had about a month of cold weather with lows 20s. Summer days were in the low to mid 90s and dry. Phelan claims to have a champagne climate and I would agree. The view of the mountains was fabulous and a ski resort was just a short drive up one of them. Plus it was possible to do a day trip to the ocean. Perfect.

Colorado Report Abuse
54 points - added 7 years ago by Haskel - 7 comments
Comments:
Colorado is nice, but too cold and icy in the winter months. The weather is very unpredictable. We can have all 4 seasons in one day. Spring is nice, last from mid-March to May, Summer lasts from June to August -September or so. Fall lasts from late September to ,maybe October, because it might snow in October. Winter lasts from November to mid- March and then in between all of that, it could snow in May, June, July or whenever, pretty much! Can't beat the mountains, the scenery, Summers are a dry heat, can get very hot, but not usually. Nice, until the ice and sometimes, the snow is unpleasant! It is ALWAYS beautiful though!ALWAYS! The Mountains are the best, either looking at them or if you're on Pikes Peak or any mountain area.

Colorado is a big state and varying degrees of climate. Use to live in a ski area and yes it can be winter for months on end. Moved to the western slope and it has the best climate in all of Colorado. We have less snow and cold than Denver plus you are very close to the mountains and canyon lands. The Grand Mesa is a wonderful place to play. It reminds me of northern Minnesota and Wisconsin.

I live here and if you like 8 months of winter then by all means live here!!! Summer is perfect but being cold 8 months sucks! It snows in May even June sometimes and then starts all over again in September...don't be fooled! Everything else is great except people not super friendly just luke warm...keep to themselves.

Colorado is the only state in the top 5 that has a very diverse, but still not extreme, climate! There is ALWAYS fun things to do no matter what season! The cost of living is mediant and the pay is above the federal average! The economy is booming and everyone there is VERY open minded!!! There could not be a more perfect place for a person that hates monotony!!!! THE LAND OF DIVERSITY!!!!!!!!

I loved Arizona. I lived in Northern AZ for 11 years. I loved that the weather is dry. I loved that we could escape whatever weather was happening. If it was too cold in the winter, we could head down to Phoenix. If it was hot, we could head for Flagstaff where summer temps are generally in the low 80s.

I went there in PHX. I know that there has very heat over 100's in summer. But I love AZ anyway.. there has very nice view and sunny. Awesome desert mountains! I can't believe it when we drove up to Flagstaff from Phx. there has green mountains because it is snow and high elevation, cooler. It is difference climate/weather between Flagstaff and Phx. Also Tucson. COOL!

Best fall, winter, and spring anywhere. Summers are brutal, June-August. But, they are dry. So it's a bearable heat as long as you don't try to do anything outside in the sunny heat of the day.

Washington Report Abuse
44 points - added 7 years ago by Haskel - 8 comments
Comments:
People get the west side of Washington and the whole state mixed up. Yes it rains a ton in Seattle. However, the rain shadow caused by the cascade mountains makes the east side of the state relatively dry. Central Washington is a desert, with some towns getting more than 300 sunny days a year. Spokane is in Eastern Washington. It has very warm summers(usually in the 80's and 90's) with warm nights and average snowfall in the winter.
Added 8 months ago by guest, 2 points Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
If about 50 days of sunshine a year is enough, then you will love Seattle. There is a phenomenon called the Seattle Freeze. The name, unrelated to weather, came about from studies trying to explain why people are so unfriendly in Seattle. I would guess it is the gray, dank, overcast days for the majority of the year.

Can only speak for west of the Cascades, i.e., Seattle/Tacoma. Summers absolutely perfect--17 hours daylight, cool, clear, sparse rain. Winters the opposite--17 hours dark, days permanently overcast, dismal, rains constantly, suicidally depressing. Spring/Fall somewhere in between. If you can winter somewhere else, it's not that bad. Otherwise it sucks.

Specific to West of the Cascades: the weather is actually pretty rotten. unless you hate the sun to the point that you wish to neither see it nor any blue in the sky for about 7 months out of the year.

Kansas Report Abuse
37 points - added 7 years ago by Haskel - 3 comments
Comments:
Go figure why Kansas rated this high. I lived in Lawrence for seven years. One year it snowed around Halloween and was -17 later that winter. Summers were typically hot--over 100 sometimes, and could be humid. Like the rest of the Midwest, there is always the possibility of a tornado. One hit about a mile from our house and messed up several apartment buildings. On the plus side, Lawrence is a pretty place with quite a bit to do and overall the people are friendly.

Michigan is one of those states that you can experience all four seasons in just one day. Michigan has a BEAUTIFUL fall season. Winters are cold and dry, springs are warm and rainy, summers are warm/hot and humid. It really is a great state if you don't mind the unpredictable changes in weather. One day it could be 30 degrees and snowing and the next day could be 50 degrees and sunny.

WOW! How does Michigan rank this high and how does it rank above SC? I lived in MI for 43 years. There are about 10-20 beautiful days per year and the rest of the year the weather is terrible. The winters are brutal. I have lived in SC for 3 years. There are some wicked strong storms here, but plenty of incredible weather pretty much all year 'round.

Virginia Report Abuse
20 points - added 7 years ago by Haskel - 2 comments
Comments:
Summer humidity is so intense that cool breezes feel like a damp gust from a sweaty armpit held in front of a powerful fan. It's horrible to endure the dry heat of the car, acclimatize to the AC when it finally starts blasting and then to reemerge into the intense wet heat. Winter - I love it when it snows. It does so rarely. Two inches of snow will incite delays and closures and countless traffic incidents and emergencies. Two feet of snow means the highways become amateur demolition derby arenas and the stores are closed, gas stations are from Mad Max suddenly, and you understand why people were going absolutely manic at the grocery store two days ago. I lived in Southern Va for ten years, Central Va for 2 years and Northern Va for 3 years. Virginia should at least be around 25 or 30. I went to Arizona in the summertime for three years running to escape Virginia's sweltering summer. A dry heat at 107 is incredibly bearable compared to a humid 89 degrees with hot breezes and an unforgiving sun. If you burn easily...

Summer is about 90 with 90% humidity. Fall and spring are lovely. Winter can either be mild or horrible! BUT winter isn't as long as NE. Normal winters can be just a dusting of snow to 1-2". In 2009 Dec. it was horrible 4' of snow, blizzards, one snow storm after another and VA is not prepared to handle such storms.

Comments:
Idaho can be variable as different years mean different weather. Summer means dry heat in 90's winter means temps in the 20's dry snow that drifts into tall fluffs with breaks in between for about a month with spring and fall that just rains. Can have wet years or long months without rain. Consider this: Idaho grows lots of crops and people usually have a garden. Idaho panhandle means colder winters but less bugs. Love those rolling hills. Really miss it there.

Can't step outside without being coated in bugspray because gnats & mosquitos will eat u alive. They love to hover in your face. It's so hot & humid!! I've lived here in south Ms all of my life. Your either worried by bugs or the heat & humidity or afraid a hurricane will decide to blow you away. Or an off chance that a tornado will develope with one of our many thunderstorms that happen everyday in th spring ,summer & fall. August is the hottest month if u ask me. that's also when school starts back. Poor kids endure buses with no a/c. Band kids &athletes practice in this mess. My kids come home so hot & physically drained. I love my small town life where I can walk to the grocery store, pharmacy, Dollar store, bank & school. Everyone's nice here in my town. Everyone knows everyone. If I could uproot it & move it to a cooler climate I'd be tickled pink!! So anyone who loves the things I was negative about come on & enjoy our lil Mayberry kind of town.(Seminary)Lol!!

Absolutely....and I love the fact we can get to the mountains, the beaches, the city, farmland...all within twenty/forty minutes depending on where you live...plus Boston is 45 mins away and NYC 3 hours...we are definitely underrated as far as the states go....but maybe that's a good thing...don't wanna get crowded...lol

Rhode island deserves more credit. Never as hot or as cold as neighboring areas, lacking much hurricane frequency, scarce tornadoes and floods, and minimal earthquake risk. Half the days are sunny and the others may have a passing shower. You're pretty safe here. Just don't be stupid!

Maryland Report Abuse

Maryland has all 4 seasons. Sometimes the seasons like to stick around in months they don't belong. For instance I was swimming in the Atlantic ocean October 1 because it was hot as hell. 2 weeks later it's snowing. Summer is usually 85 average

Gets a bit humid in the summer but the winters are very mild (take it from someone who knows...lived in the Chicago area my whole life and the winters are really easy compared to there.) 8-9 months of the year are pretty great if you want 4 seasons but not too bad of a winter.

The weather is backwards as hell out in MD. It's cold when it should be hot and vice versa. But when it's hot, it's hot as hell, and when it's cold, it's freezing. Know because I lived here all my life

"If you don't like the weather here in OK, just wait a day." Really the weather is too crazy here. Sunny 70s one week and snow the next. Some blame it on the winds, "Texas sucks and Kansas blows".. Stupid Little joke. We have 4 seasons but spring and fall are short (blink and you'll miss those 2). The snow here sucks, it's more like slush. Okies can't drive in it and school gets closed for 1" of snow. Lol

If you like extreme weather, Arkansas is the best! Winters are mostly cold and wet with ice, not much snow. Air is damp so it makes the cold even colder. Spring days are few, you go from winter right into HOT summers with high humidity.

Southern Indiana has a very American south climate. Four seasons, but moderate winters with little snow and early springs. Pretty nice climate, but the summer can be humid, oppressive, and seemingly endless. We've lived in Florida, NJ, Atlanta, Memphis, Cincinnati, Orlando, Sarasota, and the mountains of WV...and Southern Indiana climate is decent...only behind the Gulf Coast.

I lived there and was convinced it was The Rainforest. I would lie in bed and listen to the rain on the roof, drip drip drip. I returned to Arizona a year later. My horses thanked me, as they no longer were getting eaten alive by biting insects. The dampness there was hard to take.

PR has nice weather and of course no snow. It is hot and high humidity far away from beaches and mountains during summer. Around beaches there has a lot of breeze to beat high humidity and inland mountains are cool and warm. I tell you I am from there. During Winter amazing warm low humidity breezy. Take breath on beach Aaaah!

No way!! If you like the kind of chill that gets so deep in your bones you have to stand in front of an open oven door to thaw its perfect. Fall is perfection. Spring is also but so short then the pressing humidity of summer saps all energy. Tornado weather is always looming.

Spring and Fall are beautiful times of the year. Actually, Fall could last an extra month and it would be perfect. Summer is short, so people make the most of the good weather while it's there. WI has a lot of lakes, so boating/water sports are plentiful.August is humid, by northern standards! Winter is great, if you love snow sports and thrive in a cooler climate.

Depends on where you live in NJ. We could have no snow down here by Atlantic City, and Philadelphia and/or NYC could get 8". The more southeastern you are located in the state, the better the weather is. It's also the least populated area of the state. The closer you get to the ocean, the more stable the temperatures are (cooler in summer, warmer in winter). We could have a 60 degree day in January down here by the ocean.

Summers are in the 70s which isn't too hot or too cold. Autumns? Well Vermont his know for it's colorful foliage of leaves, and also known for the great maple syrup. If your looking for all four seasons in a perfect location and with perfect temperatures for each season them vote Vermont!

New York Report Abuse
4 points - added 7 years ago by Haskel - 4 comments
Comments:
Born and raised on Long Island, went to school in Albany, came home and now I'm looking for somewhere new to live. However, I'm finding it difficult to get the awesome seasons and weather that we have here. Yes, in the winter we get snow & in the summer we get some hot and humid temps but only in July. Snow lasts from between dec-feb solidly. Though, I live mid-island and we are equally close to both the wineries out east in the Hamptons and NYC. We also have Beaches on 2 sides and many really cute towns. We are also about 2 hours from the mountains if you are into winter sports like skiing. Spring is short maybe a few weeks but fall is beautiful and there are a lot of fun activities and farms out east. The problem here is how expensive it is. 200k-250k can get you a decent house you still have to work on if you like updates. Finding jobs is also difficult. It's also expensive to commute if you're thinking about working in the city and living on the island- it's like $400 a month to take the train and hours of sitting in rush hour traffic if you drive. However, if a commute is not your issue than I'd suggest check out Suffolk County. We are more suburban and laid back, we have really nice Main Streets in almost every town and good schools. We also have fun festivals for each season and lots to do. We have a few breweries and we are close to sports arenas (major league soccer, football, baseball, hockey).

Winter is tough. Summer is Great. It is hot and humid but I love that compared to brutal winter weather. You can boat in many lakes there are alot of bodies of water. we border two great lakes (Ontario and Erie.) The finger lakes are beautiful. The St. Lawrence river is Beautiful. Bad: Taxes, Politics, Regulations... All that Bull**** that comes with living on nice land with the biggest city in the world... Im From Syracuse

Minnesota has a lot of nice qualities....unfortunately, a mild climate isn't one of them and overides most of the good things. If you're ok with enjoying life outside of your home for 3 or 4 months a year, and staying inside the other 8 or 9 months, this is the place for you ! Summer is pleasant (other than the bugs), but very short ! Winter is very long and brutal !
