New Hampshire Is Too Cold - Manchester versus Fairfax, VA

You'd trade being surrounded by liberty-loving activists for an average of about 10 degrees?

According to your data
VA 789 65.75
NH 695 57.91
7.84 degrees F difference

The way I'd count it is the difference counts against NH is the coldest months and against VA in the warmest months so it would be like this:
Coldest 7 months
VA 54.14
NH 46.14
8 degrees F difference

Warmest 5 months
VA 82
NH 75.8
6.2 degrees F difference

NH is 8 degrees colder around the winter
VA is 6.2 degrees warmer around the summer
1.8 degrees F difference away from the each other when both are compared to year-round moderate year round weather = 1.8 degrees F in VA's favor

If you look at the charts, you will notice that Portsmouth/Hampton/Seabrook has more mild winters and summers than Manchester.

From what I understand of Virginia is that the coast is where it is noticably warmer and the further west you go the cooler it is because of the Virginian mountains. Very nice graph, Kevin. Thanks for posting this.

That's only 1 degree difference... if you're using Celsius ;)

I personally like the cold.
You get to turn the heat up and have hot chocolat and get under a blanket.
Plus you get to shovel cars and driveways, which at least I like.

Wouldn't going to VA defeat the purpose of this site?

Sounds like you would love NH then. I'm a winter-lover myself. Love the snow and the cold.

Yep, I'm a cold fella as well. Can't really stand anything over 80 degrees. So, NH is what I love.

I've visited both VA and NH in the cooler and warmer times of the year.

I'm from the deep south so I'm no stranger to murderously hot weather for a better part of the summer months (Real feel temps peaked at 114 so far this year), and the VA coastal areas have plenty days even in spring that can get almost as inhospitable as the south.   What fascinated me about visiting NH in the summer time was seeing people outside, not having to rush into a pool to avoid heat stroke, but gardening in the midday sun - in jeans no less.

As for the cold, the difference is negligible after you reach a certain temp, just dress appropriately.

Well done, although I think it is the average low temperature, not the average high temperature, that makes people balk!

You might be right.  However, people are usually inside at 4 a.m.

I get this alot, "You must really love the snow.", as if that's the only logical conclusion to be made from moving elsewhere(although in my case that statement is somewhat applicable).  I try to imagine what people down here imagine of NH, snowing year-round, the locals dodging polar bears on their daily snowmobile-bound commute to their ice-hole, and battling eskimos for furs and whale blubber.

My observation on heat was more subjective, in that the drawn-out summer months in the south you'll hardly see a person outside for any extended period of time.  Sure the same could be said for NH winters, but it seems alot more palatable to come in from outdoors and warm up instead of being drenched head to toe in sweat.

Actually, on my ipod I have Nashua's daily temp as well as TN and I compare them daily.  There isn't really that much difference and if I try to forget about the snow, I am really not worried about the weather at all.

When I tell people I'm from CA wrt snow, they say "Oh you must hate not being able to go outside!"

Well, no, I'm used to that. Somehow they forget that, even though it's a dry heat, 105F is still too fucking hot to leave your air conditioned place.
