Hmm, I suspect you're going to need all your "hot" and "cold" words if you head for Kansas......... From personal experience, I'd have to say Hawaii (no great extremes of anything; few if any natural threats [aside from Mauna Loa?/Kea?]). Lots of people swear by San Diego CA, but they have those wildfires. For a while I enjoyed the best of both worlds-- summer months in Michigan, winter months in Florida, thus avoiding both extreme snowfall and excessive heat/humidity and hurricanes. Unfortunately, it entailed a BORING drive twice yearly, and ultimately proved to be a budget-buster. Everyplace in the US that might be "perfect" has a defect of one sort or another.
