If I could live anywhere in North America, where would it be? Given what I'm about to tell y'all about myself, what cities should I consider if I wanted to live somewhere else?

I love Vancouver, but I'll admit by this time of year the previous 6 months of rain and gloom can really, really get to a girl. I also have migraines that get triggered by changes in barometric pressure (among other things), and the weather here doesn't really help in that regard.
I'm looking for a city with nice, fairly consistant weather. Sunshine just makes me happy. A city with a good tech industry is pretty vital, as I need to support myself. Also, I identify the most with the left-leaning atheist crowd, so the stereotypical bible-beltish areas are not my first choice. I love walkable cities, but i'm not really the outdoorsy type. I would just really rather not have to drive to get a coffee or gallon of milk. Being able to live close enough to work where the commute won't drive me insane is vital. Other than that, I'm pretty flexible. I am Canadian, but for the sake of argument assume anywhere in North America (north of Mexico) is fair game. So - if you were me, what cities and areas would appeal to you to live in?
Note, I'm not actually planning on moving anywhere soon... but I am trying to figure out where I would like to live, if the opportunity presented itself to just pick up and go!
