Seriously, some of these people have fun shoveling snow. The weather is pretty much the main reason I left up-north. I have a totally different opinion than a lot of people on here.

Not to mention, late September to early May is absolutely gorgeous, no bugs, eating outside, not too hot, but not cold.
The heat and humidity is the main reason I'll probably never visit any tropical place. I have noticed a lot of people who love hot weather also like to swim, surf, or just generally be in the water. I have no desire to do any of those things. I do like the idea of being on a boat or ship in cool or cold weather. This looks like a perfect day to me:

That's a picture I took in Washington state back in November, and with high temps probably in the low 90s today here in TN, I'd give anything to be standing where that picture was taken instead.

That's a beautiful picture, and I too like days like that when I'm on vacation lol. I live in the sun-soaked peninsula of Florida so when I travel I like to wear a coat, or light jacket, sip hot chocolate, or go snow skiing. However, where I live needs to be an inferno, a moist one at that. That's where my body is most comfortable, but I understand your opinion. Also when I lived in the Upstate of SC the heat was more unbearable than Orlando since we have so much water around and it rains everyday in the summer for one hour which cools things off really nicely.

Yes, I'm glad everyone doesn't like the same weather. If we did we'd all have to squeeze into the same place!

I'm sorry, but that picture looks depressing as hell. Who wants to stand around in cold, dark, damp weather? That's fun to you?

Dude, it's the difference between coffee weather & piña colada weather, for lack of a much better metaphor. If one day you're in the mood to chill out and read a book with a warm late in hand while watching the drizzle fall outside Pike's Place Market, then Seattle weather will seem fun to you that day. Conversely, if you're in the mood to work on your tan at the beach with a cooler full of Corona, then Florida might be the place for you.

It's cloudy so it's easy on my eyes, it's cool so I'm actually comfortable and not sweating, and it's damp so it's good for my skin. It pretty much beats heat and sun any day, at least for me. When it's 40-60 and cloudy I actually do things outdoors. When it's 75+ and sunny I stay inside because it's too uncomfortable outside to actually enjoy it.

If you want mild/warmer weather, I think the California coast wins. If you want a little bit of a 4 season climate that's still mild, I think Albuquerque is the best.

I live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and am so tired of sweltering heat and deadly tornadoes. But after reading this thread, I'm thinking US weather just sucks, in general.
