What US city do you perceive to have the "best" weather?

San Diego gets my vote,

Practically anywhere in Southern California that is near the coast will beat anywhere else.

San Diego DOES get the best weather.

Just wish it wasn't an illegal paradise.

This. Neither place ever gets too hot or too cold and they're sunny 80+% of the time.

Yeah, but too bad that most tourists don't realize that the cloudiest month of the year is June, and many are WAY disappointed when they get here then. We call it May Gray, and June Gloom. But otherwise, yes, San Diego is awesome. But I could get used to living on a beach in Maui real quick. :D

The interesting thing about these cities, is that when the Big Island breaks in half and slides down into the sea causing a Tsunami so massive that it will send 100ft - 200ft (30m - 60m) waves, both cities will be completely erased.():)

Oh and LA too!

Could happen today, could happen in 10,000 years, but it will surely happen.

Saw a show where they showed that one of the Canary Islands will do the same thing eventually, taking out most eastern cities.

We got married in Rancho Palos Verdes last summer, and we stayed in Santa Monica preparing and scoping out details leading up to the big day. As a Portland, OR/Willamette Valley product who's lived most of his life in the rain, I have to admit that as much as we love to rip on California, the weather in So Cal is pretty damn nice.

Obviously, no one here is from Colorado.
We have the best weather, it's snowing here in May ffs.

We have all sorts of geological fun in store for us if we live long enough to see it.

Yellowstone could blow at any moment as well. It has been heating up and swelling up for as long as records have been kept, and the process is accelerating. The suspected caldera floor has risen 35 inches since 1929, and considering the size, that is a monumental amount of pressure contained under there. Estimates range from modest (several million dead and a three year recovery for the US, with possibly no economic recovery), to dramatic (global mass extinction event).
