One of the best places online to get information about a place within the United States is a site called 'City-Data'
For your city of interest go to this link:
When they say 'data' they mean it. Like, data on steroids, an exhaustive amount of information about nearly any town or city within the U.S.
There is the cut and dry long list of things such as climate, population makeup, crime rate, even a listing for every toxic location in town. (those that are public record at any rate).
But, where City-data.com really shines is the heavily contributed Forum section where regular people ask and answer 'boots on the ground' questions to get a parochial view of what is really going on in town.
In this case, there is a good one, entitled: 'A year into our move to Reno/Sparks - our thoughts'
One interesting passage of many by this one individual, since weather has been a key part of the conversation here in this thread:
A few myths about Reno....
There are over 200 other posts in the forum specifically speaking about Reno. I think you will find a lot of enlightenment by reading through them all.
I have compared the forum contributions to places I know of well or have lived in myself and found them to be highly accurate.
