I read a few things from the article and title of this thread. Should people complain less about the weather? Yes, of course or again, do something about it and go somewhere with better weather that suits you.
I guess the issue I have with the complaints come from the people who have no plans on moving (doing something about it). To some people (and I'm plenty guilt of this as well) the weather is a conversational crutch and the things I hear people in Columbus casually and conversationally complaining about is trivial at best.
"Oh, would you look at that rain today? Typical Columbus!"
"Could you believe that drive this morning? I was a whole 15 minutes late! This Columbus snow is terrible!"
I could do with less of that sort of thing I guess.

Yeah, I admit I used an attention-grabbing thread title to spark some discussion. I don't honestly believe we have the best year round weather, but it's certainly not as bad as other places. And while it could be considered a competitive disadvantage, I don't think that's stopped other cities with worse winters (Chicago? Boston? New York?) or rainier climates (Seattle?) from becoming cities where people want to live regardless of the weather.
