Absolutely! But I don't live up north somewhere and complain about the weather. I guess I'm a smart wimp.

It is amazingly naturally beautiful here. I just drove to South FL for the weekend and my goodness! Everything there is concrete. No grass medians even! My daughter said "Mommy, what happened? How did this get destroyed?!" Shes 5 and her sense is right on. It looks desolate except for the over congestion. I am soooooo glad to be back home!! And you surely cant beat the smell of spring.

I was here for a week mid-July last year, and then moved here August 1st. Sure it was hot, but it was hot in the mid-west, too. I'll take hot-and-pretty over hot-and-flat-and-boring any day.

Wow, that sounds nice! Post a picture when that's all in bloom?

And to those who say visit the mountains: how much cooler is it?

It depends on the elevation.

Places like Asheville that are around 2,500 feet are mostly in the mid-eighties in summer. Places like Highlands, Cashiers, Boone, and Blowing Rock that are around 3,000 to 4,000 feet are in the seventies in summer.

Of course, if you're in a house on a mountain in Asheville, you'll be in the seventies too.

And any of these can experience a few days with higher or lower than average temperatures. Last summer was one of the worst ever.
