Yea I know it. I just stay inside in the afternoon. No doubt May and September can be very nice with some hot days, but June through August is no better then December through February up North to me. Eh, its all in what you can handle I guess, and as they say, it is what you make of it.

This last summer was truly not typical, but anyone who had to endure it . . . it definitely made being outdoors quite uncomfortable at times. It felt a lot like being in Florida in the summer - you just don't get out that much in the day, use A/C and when outdoors, wear cotton or linen clothing and hang around pools as much as possible.

You are right. Last summer was not typical. I was up visiting and staying uptown in a hotel. It was so hot that I had to buy a fan for the hotel room. The thermometer was 107 for about two days. It was a all time record. I believe this was in July, but it was ridiculously hot. I live in Florida and I know hot. I also know that it is better in Charlotte as Charlotte at least gets some cool nights. We don't down here.

Jimmy321, We are originally from Jersey too. Everyone has been soooo nice. Even after we won the Super Bowl!!!!!! They do tease us about squeezing the bread, but they just don't understand.

The other thing about the heat here compared to NYC is that it starts really early in the morning and goes much later in the evening than it does in NYC area. It's definitely more intense but as someone pointed out, everything in Charlotte is air conditioned.

Many ways to cool off in Charlotte.

Carowinds Water Park, Rays Splash Planet (Indoor water park Uptown), Mecklenburg Aquatic Center Uptown, 3 lakes (Lake Norman, Mountain Island Lake & Lake Wylie).

Or just drive for a day trip to our beautiful mountains. You can best bet that if it is 95 in Charlotte...it is 75-80 in the NORTHERN mountains of NC!

Hi Mike! We too are from Long Island and just sold our home. Finally after 3 years of contemplating a move, we are headed for Waxhaw! Yeah! I am a RE Broker and hopefully will continue to do RE in NC. My husband is moving w/o a job. He hopes to find something once we are living there. You say there are plenty of jobs but other posters say that they are scarce. Do you know something they don't? We would love to contact you!
