I'll go with the hotter end of the spectrum, but I'll also tolerate some extreme cold if it means "peace and quiet" as well.

Noise-pollution wise, I'm an 80 yr old man trapped in a 27 yr old body.

Hot or cold, good weather does not include humidity. I always hear people talk about a "dry heat" but I have no idea what that feels like.

I prefer cooler weather. October is hands down the best month of the year.

This I agree with 100%. I didn't like hot and/or humid weather as a kid and still can't stand it and I'm in my fifties. I would NEVER move to a place that has miserable heat or humidity for a good part of the year.

The Chicago area where I live has had a miserable summer so far. The air conditioner is my best friend.

Go to the western part of your state during summer.

I've wondered that too. I guess its warmer than where most of those people are from.

Agreed, I hated hot weather most of my life. Never understood even tourists who go south in summer on vacations. Of course, you can cool down in the sea, but swimming all the time is boring, I want to do something else (for example, visit some attractions), but it's too hot for it...
