Where will we weather?

We have a freezing rain and rain weather alert today.  I wondered where would a person live to have great weather year round. This is an easy internet question, with many sites giving answers.  Is temperature the deciding factor?  Is it the number of sunny days a year? These two seem to be at the top of the list.

At the tenth spot on the list of themysteriousworld.com is Medellin, Colombia, know as the City of eternal spring.  The temperature ranges from 64 to 82 degrees, and there are colourful flowers year-round. This seems to be an understatement as the pictures retrieved are of flower floats in the Medellin Flower Festival.  This is a flower growing area now and Colombia exports 500 million flowers for Valentine's Day, according to one article.  At the first spot on the list is San Diego, with temperatures of 71 to 57 degrees.  San Diego has over 300 sunny days a year.  If one wanted to live in one of the '10 best cities in the world',  neither of these cities pop up, but Sydney Australia shows up in both lists. 

We could find top places to live for James Bond lovers or Sherlock Holmes building connections - there are all kinds of reasons to visit and live in places.  Alternately a railroad layout in the basement, like Bill and Mary Miller's in Maryland would keep you inside most of the time.
