At least we got water to water our lawns and gardens and keep them looking nice and green

Dreary.........i would have thought a uniform brown landscape somewhat more dreary than the varied colours you find in Switzerland

Cold, rainy damp ? yes i agree today, but we have had fantastic weather since July here, even up until mid November it was 15C outside, at 800m altitude.
Yes, California has been suffering from a long drought but the weather is WAY WAY BETTER than CH.

And coming from New England I find the weather far more pleasant, and not so cold in winter, nor so hot in summer, much nicer overall.

When I lived in NE my consolation was that at least our winter was not so bad like Canada.

Sure i guess it is if you want wall to wall sunshine and no rain, but if you prefer a little variation and reasonable defined seasons, then maybe not
