I drove up Mt. Mansfield in NC a few years ago. The car thermometer said it was 88 where I started, and was 67 when I got to the top.

I noticed a secondary migration pattern has begun in this regard. Many people I knew in Savannah had second homes in North Carolina that they moved to in spring/summer (to avoid the heat/humidity) in much the same way Northeasterners move to Florida in fall/winter to avoid the cold. Folks in NC are already likely noticing their 'season' the way we do here in Florida, just at a different time of year.

14,000 years ago we had the first Native Americans wandering in FL and I bet they uttered "Dag Dog, this hot weather causes my leather to stick to my skin"

LOL, from some of the "pre-history" l novels I read ( fictional and speculative for sure), I always pictured these folks being naked. Might be cooler, but considering the flora and fauna (mosquitoes, no-see-ums) to be found in our fair state, going nekkid would bring its own set of problems.

That definitely sounds right. I would certainly do it.

People complain it is to cold up north than complain it is to hot down south!! Instead of complain i just embrace and make the best of what i have to work with!
I will be in FL tomorrow for a week and ... packed a lot of shorts, light shirts and bathing suits. I have been in FL almost every month of the year since my first visit about 1991 and yes it can be humid, but the issue isn't that big of a deal. If someone really can't handle it or deal with nit, move to where it isn't humid.

CA, NV,AZ, NM, OR, WA, ID or basically any State west of the Rockies. Be prepares for .... high COL, rain or a LOT of barren land and ..... well except the West coast States, no ocean and the pacific is COLD when you go there.

So do you think the temp goes over 100 more often in Carolina or Florida?

You got it.
Millions of people visit Florida every year because of the weather and we get to experience it for free.Sort of.
Even on the hottest and most humid day of the year I wouldn't swap it for anywhere else.

.
While that would be the logical course of action the problem is for many who dont like the heat and humidity there are many reasons they cant just up and move as many factors can lead a person to becoming entrenched in an area .

The correct answer is of course the Carolinas if you are talking about real temperature. Humidex temperature might be different.
