    Have you ever seen the weather in San Francisco?

    Compared to Chicago's weather, it's pure paradise. But that can be said about most places.

    Cold and gloomy all day. Give Los Angeles or San Diego a look.

    I guess it's a matter of perspective. Coming from Chicago, where the average temps in the winter are in the low 20's and the average temps in the summer are in the 80's, Perfection in climate is mild temperatures with little to no variance and no extremes in either direction.

    And it's WAY more gloomy here than it is in San Fran. There are four months of the year where we have a good deal more cloudy days than sunny ones. Like 60% of the time it's overcast.

    San Fran's worst month averages about 50/50. That's what we average for the entire year.

    And they only average about 70 days of rain, compared to over 100 for Chicago with an additional 30 days or so of snow.


    For me, perfection in climate is very rarely going above 75, very rarely going below 40, and almost never snowing.

    Toss in slightly more sun than clouds and relatively low rainfall levels (compared to what I'm used to at least) and I'll be in heaven.

    Seriously. Most people want to drive to work in the US? Would most people not prefer to live within walking distance to work?

    In all seriousness. Best American cities are clearly in declining order.
    1. Vancouver(said to be best in the world)
    2. Toronto
    3. Montreal

    I mean, common long term sense would dictate that policy regulation move attitudes in the European direction. Not only is it more efficient, but caring about peoples health it makes a lot more sense.
