Wow, such a serious discussion of the topic! :-)

If we're going that way, my two cents is that it's a little of both. There are good reasons for the differences === weather, geography, finance, etc. And it is also true that Chicagoans and others in the midwest are unfazed by harsh weather in a way that people in other areas just aren't.

Just like I wouldn't last a week in Florida. 8-)

My friend who now lives in AZ came home for Thanksgiving several years ago and said something like "I don't know how you people live like this" because we had a bad cold snap at the time.

I felt the same way when I had to go to Phoenix in August for a week.

Dry heat my ass. It was HOT. I was melting.
