I think you're asking "in general" - and I think the answer is YES. You hear more people "bragging" (for lack of a better term) about the weather in warm climates rather than cold.

Great topic....Thanks! I have lived in the Southwest desert for 17 plus years and I am sick of HOT! It's been 115 to 120 here for awhile now and in the 90's at night....I don't put "warm" during the summer up on a pedestal anymore....I would love to have 60 or 70 degree days and cool nights in the summer....I'm not into walking around in a bikini during the summer anymore. I'll take more "cool" anytime....I want to live in an area with more variety and 4 seasons...."Sun year round" doesn't turn me on anymore.....Some people get snowed-in during winters in their area but we try to stay in as much as possible during summers here in the desert.

I hate it when the newscasters on the local news get all giddy when the forecast is in the 90s+. You know they go from their air-conditioned house into their air-conditioned garage into their air-conditioned car then dash through the heat into their air-conditioned studio.

Hot weather with humidity is fine if you're by a large body of water

For me "good weather" is anything from 60-80.

I can deal with a few days in the 80's or even upper 80's just for the hell of it, but then I start to get really fussy (like this year). My body just HATES the heat. I'm not a superfan of cold weather, but I can hands down handle cold way more than heat.

10 degrees with a scarf, decent shoes and a nice coat on and I'm doing just fine. 90 degrees while I'm outside waiting for the train and I almost want to panic.

Not for me.

For me "good weather" is 20s-30s with it either snowing or snow on the ground.

40s-50s are nice too.

To me, a good day temperature is between 70 and 80 degrees, and a good nighttime temperature is between 55 and 65.

"Good" weather certainly does not mean hot in my opinion. 70's with sunshine is "good" weather. Anything below 60F is also not really "good" weather especially if it is cloudy and windy.

I think a lot of people probably mean hot, but the majority of people that I know mean seem to use the same definition as used by californio sur -- 70s with sunshine (and without excessive humidity) -- to mean good weather.
