Yeah our weather definitely has more advantages than disadvantages

and as I said recently, is a big part of the reason for SF's large homeless population (which I guess you could classify as a disadvantage but homeless folks don't bug me much). But even though I was just in NYC for a year, I definitely got the appeal of having actual seasons, especially summer. Skin cancer concerns aside, I find sunbathing to be very therapeutic but w/ my sensitivity to cold and the handful of *hot* days (75 degrees+), I almost never get to do it. Autumn was my favorite east coast season though- the colors and crunch of the leaves, the crisp air, all that shit. And despite the aforementioned sensitivity to cold, I did enjoy the novelty of snow as well (had only been in real snow once before as a child), especially walking around at night w/ headphones when snow's actually falling (or through a snow-blanketed Greenwood Cemetery during the day).
"Also you all are kind of ####ed when there's the odd heat wave and nobody has AC."
Yeah, the way buildings and streets in SF are constructed, we can't really handle any type of actual weather whatsoever. We're famous for our hills, except unlike east coast towns that get real storms, our streets don't have adequate drainage so overtime we get a couple of days of rain, there's a bunch of flooding in the valleys formed by the various hills. And yes, nobody has real AC and the way buildings are insulated is a joke.
