LOL!!!! Good one, somewhat true though. Moderator cut: flaming

As many said, I basically work out in this all day, so when I get home and on weekends, I stay inside after 10AM till 8PM. Wait for November, then I am outside a lot. Until then it's AC, cold beer, DVD's, and sunblock!!! The heat of 90 degrees is ok, it's the humidity that kills ya... Otherwise no matter what I have said before negative or positive, Florida is the best place to be NOV-MARCH/APRIL, and my homestate of MA from May-October, but I heard this past summer was cold and blah.

Same here! The TI-KI bar that I built does get a better workout in the summer months, mixing some frozen concoctions some good some not so good in the afternoon. Happy hour starts when when the afternoon rains come.

I work a 9-5 during the week - no summer vacation for me!!

Generally, during the hottest months on the weekends it's: run/walk a few miles sometime before 9am, cool off with a shower (really saves on hot water), do some chores, maybe go to a movie or the bookstore, and if it isn't storming, take the dog to the park for a while, take another shower, go to a restaurant or takeout. I'm nowhere near a pool, so it's not an option.

If the boyfriend isn't on call or on his second job: we'll go hiking til noon, go to the beach, or go to the Disney waterparks. This is very rare. We'd love to have more fun, but gotta work as much as possible to save for the big move.

One of the best places I lived was on the beach for a few years. Total heaven!!!! Living inland makes it hard to be here.

The ideal would be two houses; one in Florida and one in the northeast near water. Sigh. That takes more money than we have. If I had it though... A house on the North Fork of Long Island and a house on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Someone pinch me and wake me up, please.

Not true.

We do whatever we want. I, personally, love the beaches Fall-Spring and the springs in the hot summer. There's nothing like tubing down Blue Springs on a hot summer day. My pool never gets really hot because it only gets about 2 hours of direct sunlight a day. The downside to that is I have to heat it up until mid June. We love to bike year round - you just have to do it earlier or later during the hot months. We love to garden year round. We eat on the pool deck year round. We can canoe, snorkel, swim, bike hike, etc. all year round. What's not to like?

Summer is the biggest part of tourist season here. The 4th of July reaches 99% occupancy. People are everywhere...beach, pool, shopping, outdoor restaurants...everywhere, no matter the heat!

So to answer the OP...I'm working my a$$ off!! (and lovin' it)

lol annerk
A siesta can be mighty nice, no matter what the season.

In our neck of the woods, 2009 has been a fairly mild summer. (So far! )
I pretty much echo what everyone else has said.
You do what you want.
If your timing has to be tinkered with, so be it.
But this year (and 2008) did not seem as steamy as 2007.

We've gone to the beach a lot, and it's always nice out on a boat, too.
I only have a community pool to go to, but I've been there all summer long.

It's summer all year long in South Florida, except for maybe 2 or 3 weeks when we get a cold front, so no change in habits.
