Hmm…I don’t know about that?

The extreme heat of the desert (110-120 F) might be too much for most humans…but people take vacations to places like the Caribbean to get hot 85 F , humid weather 12 months a year (lol). Warm and wet is the craddle of life, that's why life started in the tropics - not the poles.Not too many people vacation to places that are freezing cold, cloudy, and buried in snow.

Our long hot, humid summers on the East Coast are one of the best parts about living here. From May through September is the best weather all year. A sunny 88 F day, a moist southerly wind, and a good south swell…in doesn’t get any better than that.

As an old man once told me in Jamaica who owned a small hotel - there are no resorts in the arctic

Vacations are the key word. I don't want to live in any extreme weather, whether it be hot all year or cold all year. Four relatively moderate seasons, please!

I love the winter and consider myself a complete snow loving freak! However, if you were to run a poll of the general populace in the northeast, I believe the most popular season probably would not be either winter or summer, but fall. I hate the heat and humidity and I think many people would agree.

agreed, I love from September 1st through thanksgiving, nicest time of the year. Spring from about 4/15 to 6/15 is great too, summer is nice if the wind is northerly and dry, not a fan of humidity. Winter, YUK.

If we were running around naked in the wild, we would probably prefer warmer to hot weather all the time, as being mostly "furless" we were built for the tropics or something close to that. But because our intelligence has caused us to both be clothed and move to cooler regions, we tend to prefer something a bit cooler than "eternal summer".

For me spring in the northeast is just horrible. Huge allergy issues, wet then hot, then damp, then cold....Here in North Carolina spring is plain gorgeous. Summer CT is better...NC is just too damn hot. Fall CT is phenomenal best time of year. Nice here too, but summer leaks along too far and its not as crisp here. Winter is better here unless you miss the snow ...like me

My wife and I would like to move to NC, but one of the cons of moving south would be the weather, the long hot summers and the lack of snow. Where in NC do you live?

Maybe that's why I prefer heat over cold, I am not "furry" enough.
