Now I know the same can be said for the hot summers of the south. BUT at least you can still go to the beach or pool. On top of that you can hang outside at the ends of the day. I was in Dallas in June. Man the heat was brutal, but at least when the sun started to set we were still able to sit outside and enjoy ourselves. We got back to our hotel around 8PM sat, on the deck for the rest of the night drinking and having fun. Yes it was rather warm, but not bad at all, nothing like how it is during the day in Dallas. So even in the hottest of months in those places, at least in the early morning you can go for a run early in the morning (I did in Dallas) and then hang out outside in the evening.
This has been my experience as well, spending most of my life in PA and now living in Dallas. The biggest detterent of heading outside in PA's winter wasn't just the cold but the many days in a row of unmelted snow and ice. Not to mention many days of falling precip (rain, snow, or even worse, mixed!). I don't mind 30s as much as long as there's sun and the ground is dry. I find myself outside in TX way more than back in PA. Yes, PA has much better outdoor options, but the climate and aforementioned elements are definite drawbacks.

Interesting and Realistic insight

45 degrees? Cool, As Soon as the Thermostat goes up You All are gonna go back to trashing Dallas and Kissing Chicago's Ass again

I'm just getting a kick out of days now on this northern winters bashing. Makes a lot sense. Good reason to open up the thread again in July...... For some 100 bashing.....

Keeps it interesting, realistic and relevant for another round and round we go informative debate again......

I'll sure be happy winter is over. No luv for northern winters from me.

You can love a city and hate the weather. I lived in Chicago for two years. As a city, its hard to beat. But I left because I found myself so depressed during the winter. I can tolerate heat and humidity all day long. Extended cold is different.

Nope. Then you'll hear "it's normally not 90 degrees in Dallas in July. We're usually in the low 80s.

What do you mean, "gonna go back"? I pretty much trash Dallas all the time.
