You're definitely right. Way more people die of heat than die of cold. I was just explaining how dangerous blizzards can be.

Although, cold is much more deadly than heat in regards to the homeless and people without access to air conditioning or heating. Imagine trying to spend a night outside when the temperature drops below 0 and the wind chill reaches down to -15 versus trying to spend the night when it is 100+ degrees. Water is an issue for both, because winter air up here is just as dry as summer air down there. Trying to eat snow only makes you more dehydrated. Our homeless shelters tend to take in more people in during the winter though, so deaths are usually limited, fortunately.

The colder climates carry fewer diseases and more variety in locally grown food, flowers and outdoor activities. Safer hint, cold weather you can add layers, extreme heat, you ca only take so much clothing off.
I've been in and around Phoenix and if it's one thing they don't lack it's beaches.
