Having been in Vegas at 107 and St Louis at 92 this week, I will take the dry heat any day.

Yep. Hot in Denver is different than hot in the south.

I can still get outside in Dallas before noon-time or after 5 PM and manage fine during the summers. Nighttime may still be hot, but at least the sun is down. During the hottest part of the day, people are either in a pool or out on a lake. Good luck trying any of that during a Chicago winter. There's no warm part of the day that's pleasant enough to hang out at a park for more than 30 minutes. And nighttime is even worse!

Evenings after a hot day bring about cool relief. Evenings after a cold day make things even colder.
Yeah those July days in Dallas when it's a "balmy" 90 degrees at 10pm (and the air's so thick with humidity you can chew it) are perfect for fire pits and parkas. Brr. I get chills just thinking about it.

Your sarcasm is hilarious!

But honestly, this all has to do with perference. Some people really donít mind hot weather, some hate it with a passion. Just depends....

Perfect for margaritas and patio decks.

I like bike rides, walks on the beach and the coziness of winter.
Dallas doesn't fit that weatherwise or otherwise.
It's just a matter of preference. If you think Dallas summer evenings are "cool", that's a difference in paradigm or you just get cold easily. Not a knock. I get hot very easily. We're all a little different.

Dallas has much more vibrancy during summer than it does in winter. And it's winters are way milder than Chicago's. That's pretty telling of how much easier hot summers are to deal with than cold winters:

I'll take Chicago Winters, thank you very much. Cannot stand oppressive heat and baking sun.
