For those that live in California, how do you like it? Comparing it to NY.?

I hate where I live and wish to move out once I find a decent job. Nothing against NY but I'm getting kind of bored. Would like to go to california, mostly in the LA area. Or somewhere an hour's drive away.
Update: weather in ny is crap. summer is 100+ and winter snow.

How hot does California get?
