THE PLEASANT PLACES TO LIVE

“pleasant” here means the mean temperature was between (55° F and 75° F), the minimum temperature was above 45° F, the maximum temperature was below 85° F and there was no significant precipitation or snow depth.

  5. EAST OF CEDARVILLE, CA  16 days/yr

It has been a winter of dreadful weather so far. I spent January flying back and forth from New York expecting to find a different set of conditions at the end of each leg. Whichever way I went, bitter cold greeted me at the end of the jet way and often with a coating of slick ice. It’s hard not to dwell on anomalous and unpleasant weather. It got me wondering, though, where in the U.S. do you go if you want the most “pleasant” days in a year?

I decided to take a stab at what constitutes a “pleasant” day and then aggregate NOAA data for the last 23 years to figure out the regions of the United States with the most (and least) pleasant days in a typical year. The results, I think, are not that surprising and pretty much affirm the answer given off the cuff by many of my west coast friends when asked about the best places, “Southern California?” For the areas with the least pleasant days, I admit I would have guessed North Dakota. However, it’s much of Montana that gets an average of a couple of weeks of pleasantness each year. I’m sure, though, they would shake their frost-bitten fingers at me and remind me that not everyone can take the overwhelming heat of 55° F. True, there is a bit of subjectivity to the range I selected. It’s just that a lot of subjects share that same preference.

Wine Infographic

I enjoy a glass of wine…..heck DLT even has a Wine tag icon smile Wine Infographic ! Here is a cool infographic on even more things wine – from SpareFoot:

Wine

“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.”

― Ernest Hemingway

John Egan

Five decades after author Ernest Hemingway’s death, Americans are enjoying and appreciating wine in ever-growing numbers. In fact, the U.S. now ranks as the No. 1 wine-drinking market in the world, with American wine sales hitting a record in 2012.

Wine shipments to the U.S. have climbed nearly 50 percent since 2001, wine industry consultant Jon Fredrikson said, “and it is likely that American consumption will continue to expand over the next decade as wine continues to gain traction among American adult consumers.”

He added: “The amazing diversity of choices and exciting new offerings are attracting new consumers and boosting consumption.”

Here, SpareFoot serves up an infographic that offers an overview of wine offerings and consumption in the U.S. We’ve got to imagine that Ernest Hemingway — who was anything but a teetotaler — would raise a glass to these statistics.
