Dallas summers by miles. I can play golf all summer as long as I go early. How many months is it too cold to play in chicago? 4, 5, or 7 ?


No thanks, and last time I checked it was in Illinois... a financial disaster with high taxes and its still not enough. No thanks.


PS I lived in Pittsburgh for a few yeaars. Several friends moved there from Chicago and said if I thought Pittsburgh was cold. forget about Chicago so I have

Probably four, December through March, although it's hit or miss in March.

Highs start dipping below the 50's in the last half of November and start coming back into the 50's in mid March.

I'll walk my dog in Chicago winters.
I wouldn't even look out the window in Dallas summers.

Blizzards aren't common. Not nearly as common as the relentless heat of Dallas.
Yes, they'll dang near ski to walk their dogs. A lot of places will require you to clear your sidewalk X amount of time after a snow event.

It's like asking if you prefer to be shot or poisoned. Not much to prefer when the weather is terrible. I can't even begin with this question.

They do of course, dogs need to get out - but how often is there a blizzard in Chicago? Once every year or two really?

I only snows more than a few inches at one time maybe 2-3 times a year. Chicago for all its winter hype is actually pretty weak regarding snowstorms.

Dallas is hot during the summer but it’s not relentless heat everyday. There are some breaks in-between. For Example: Saturday the high temp was 101 (in Dallas) with a feels like temp of 110. Today, it’s cloudy (with rain showers) and it’s 81 degrees. Yes, the heat will be back later this week but it’s not nonstop heat...

Well it's not technically summer yet.
