Just came back from NYC. The difference in the humidity factor between there and YYZ is unbelievable. Yesterday was barely 80 in NYC and it was unbearable
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Probably just me.... but weather (unless super duper extreme) is the lowest item on my pro's and con's list of where to live. It comes somewhere right after 5* restaurants. (Especially considering the fact that I grew up in Chicago and still visit occasionally and have yet to make it to Milt's or Shallots. That, and the weather never really got to me. Yes, there are frustrating moments, but that's all they are, moments.

Weather could be a huge factor for people deciding where to live.

compared to what? Like I said it's low down on my list. I grew up in Chicago (extreme cold) and have been living in NYC for the past 5 yrs. , and now that I'm looking to move, weather has never come up as a factor to move. Nor have the restaurants (maybe because I only eat out once or twice a year.)
Though I should point out that even as I am looking to move mainly due to quality of life and housing (In that order), I enjoyed many opportunities here and have gotten used to the conveniences which will be sorley missed.

Sweltering.

Cost of living in Houston is from the lowest of any jewish community  IMHO.

http://matthewcaseywilliams.wordpress.com/2014/04/28/the-most-affordable-places-in-the-us-to-raise-your-committed-jewish-family/

This list is incredibly inaccurate!

Dallas more expensive than the valley in LA ?!

Manhattan cheaper than Pico?!

on and on...

Who came up with this baloney?
