What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

Moderate, not too hot, not too cold, beautiful springs and falls. - Sep 21, 2017
DRY. You will invest in humidifiers. We have them in all our rooms and some people have them in the living areas of their house. My 4 year old daughter told me the inside of her throat "had a rash" when her humidifier broke. Dry skin can be a major problem, as well. The soles of my feet are constantly dry and cracking. - Jan 16, 2015
It's always reminded me a lot of the intermountain western U.S. Hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters with spring and summer lasting a couple of months each. - May 13, 2014
The climate is continental. Early morning in January might be -20 degrees Celsius. Mid-afternoon in July might be +40 degrees in the shade. - Dec 17, 2011
