Redding CA - try two weeks that it is in the 110s and 120s - it cools off at night to a balmy 90. THAT is miserable. Don't give me that it is a dry heat crap either.

For laughs we used to watch out of towners go into the phone booth (I am that old) and see them try and make a call and laugh when they realized THE PHONE WAS MELTING. Or when you walk accross the street and you see your footprint in the asphault THAT is hot.

electric bill in the summer which we only used between 5 pm and 5 am was SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS. I will never complain about our summers.

And you dont have to complain ...enjoy.

ok, sure winter is great if you hate snow and spring is quite amazing (hate the northern spring),...I agree with that.
What you need to understand is that not everyone hates it or sequesters themselves indoors when it's hot. I love summer and am outside literally every day. We hike, swim, ride our bikes, take evening walks and just sit on the patio and enjoy. I love the weather here all year.

I don't Even today...who wants 70 degrees in January?? .... Was up north for a few days. They had nice crisp 45 degree days and even that was a little warmer than normal but it felt like the proper season at least. Its gonna be a LONG summer down here i have a feeling and I am thrilled to not have to deal with it ever again.

But somehow I am sure you will remind us of how terrible you think it is here many times between now and then.

Hurry up summer!

Who wants 70 in January? ME ME!!! I'm raising my hand!

I don't know JP...I saw pictures of people on the AC boardwalk to Chicago very happy and smiling....I'm sure it had something to do w/the warmer temps.....

Anytime people up there can avoid seasonal affective disorder (ie "winter depression") from lack of sunlight, they'll take it....

Also, you should know that warm temps now are no barometer on how the summer will be....

Just curious, Why is it always you are the only one complaining about the weather here?

Now, I gotta go back to getting my clubs ready for my tee time tomorrow!

And you're two hours away from mountain peaks that have only been above 80 degrees a handful of times in recorded history. Not many folks east of the Mississippi have that luxury.

I just don't understand why certain people come on here and complain about the weather every day! 70 degrees in January ....amazing! I was up North last week for a funeral for 4 days...did not see sun once. It was in the 30's and either rained, snowed, or hailed the entire time. I was never so excited to cross the NC border on Saturday and see the bright yellow sun. It is truly depressing up there this time of year, and my husband and I made a pact, unless we have to go up there in the winter for an emergency, we will not return until spring!!
