Buffalo, New York is Dreamtown USA!


07-Aug-26: NY Times calls Buffalo "Oasis"

"FOCUS: BUFFALO OASIS. The weather has been inhospitable in parts of the nation this summer. In July, the interior West sizzled under a spell of extreme heat, with Montana, Idaho and Wyoming recording their hottest Julys on record. This month, the stifling heat has shifted to the South and Ohio Valley. Memphis, Birmingham and Cincinnati have had more days with temperatures of 100 degrees and higher than any other August.
Torrential rain has poured on the Midwest and southern Plains this summer. Corpus Christi, Tex., had its wettest July, while Madison, Wis., has had its wettest August and month. In contrast, it has been a blissful summer on the shores of Lake Erie in Buffalo. May and June brought record amounts of sunshine to the city, while the average high since May has been a pleasant 77 degrees. Rainfall in Buffalo since May has totaled seven inches, compared to 17 inches in Chicago and 23 inches in New York City.

Of course, this is nothing new to Buffalonians. After all, "Buffalo has the sunniest and driest summers of any major city in the Northeast." (Read this and more at http://www.erh.noaa.gov/buf/bufclifo.htm .)
And we don't get nearly as much snow as the media portrays and not nearly as much as we used to, unfortunately...when was our last white Christmas? (More on Buffalo and snow at http://www.buffaloresearch.com/snow.html .)

And don't even get me started on the spectacular autumns!
