Nate Silver, of FiveThirtyEight, inspired me with this tweet:

His ranking, I’m sure, is the result of data science. Mine, on the other hand, is based on gut instinct mixed with hours of sunlight, lake temperatures, and optimal (sunny/dry) cycling conditions.

Months in Olympia, WA, ranked:

I will put Olympia’s June-August up against anywhere. Addis Ababa, Ethiopia would be a worthy rival if it weren’t for the afternoon showers.
