Personally I value good weather. I would be willing to spend more for a good weather and a good climate. But statistically, weather/climate is a very minor concern when compared with job/income. I am always amused when realtors use weather to justify the high valuation of BA housing. They could have used economic reasons and be more convincing.
If Dragonboy wants to justify the superiority of SF, just pick some economic achievements and the argument can be settled in minutes
