What I like most about New York is it gets consistently cold during the cool seasons. Unlike California, where it rains oftentimes, except in the mountainous areas. I used to have a grudge against rain until I noticed we were in a damn drought. I am fairly pleased we got more rainy days in the cool seasons, but let's hope we never get a shortage of rainfall again.
That's one reason I dream of moving to New York, but I lived in California for so long it seems my home is sealed here. I don't wanna move to the city, where crime may lurk, but somewhere in the state where there's snow. If I were snowed in my own home there, I would use a flamethrower to clear the blockage.
