Cold Winters > Hot Summers

Nebraska has about 1 month of very cold and usually a few weeks of very hot. Most of the year can be described as a classic spring/fall. Last year was pretty bad though (for everybody).

I'd rather sweat than shiver, bring on the heat.

I hate sweat.
I hate sun.
I hate heat.

Nothing sucks more then getting into a hot car.
Sun burns suck.
Heat gives me headaches.

One is stuck inside either way.
Only a crazy person would go out in 100F

Most people who "like" hot climates just stay inside their rooms or jobs that have AC.
Try working in place that doesn't provide that.

I like the the feeling that cold brings.
Less people out... everything is silent.
Throw on a sweater with a coat on and you're good in winter.

People exaggerate the uncomfortability of cold.

NYC has both and neither one is great. The best seasons in NYC are the spring and fall when you don't have either of these extremes normally.

As long as I have both of them in the same year, I'm good. I prefer Christmas/New Year weather over 4th of July weather though.

Definitely cold weather for me, you can always bundle up if it's too cold for comfort, but you can't take all your clothes off in the heat, even if you could it wouldn't help and u'd get burnt to hell and probably go to jail lol

also, i like the cold because it invigorates me, makes me feel alive
too much heat just makes me miserable lazy, don't want to do anything outside, and i like doing things outside where i live it was over 90 for 3 months with maybe a few days break and usually that was from storms

I'll take HOT STICKY SUMMER FULL OF THUNDERSTORMS ANY Day Over A Cold Winter. In Central Florida, We get HOT, HUMID, And Have THUNDERSTORMS almost daily From About May- October, although it did not rain one day in october this year so Oct/Sept from year to year. Now again HERE IN CENTRAL FLORIDA it gets downright COLD in months such as December,Jan, Feb, March. At the Same time We can have a VERY mild Winter with Temps in the 70's and occasionally 80's. SO I rather not deal with dry air because it is harder for me to breath and the grass is ugly.UGH So Yes Hot Long Summers.

people always use the "you can put on more clothes, but you can only take off so much" reasoning. That may be so, but why are summers far more active than winters? Even in Southern cities, winters (which are relatively mild) can be very dead compared to summers where it's hot as hell, but you still see people out everywhere. I love Winter up til Christmas & New Years, but after that, it's horribly depressing and dead. Summertime is long and hot, but at least there's something going on all the time.

Summertime : I grab t-shirt, shorts, tongs, and go out for an errand in sunny weather without an afterthought;
Wintertime : I must first dress up, put on boots, winter coat, scarf, gloves, and then heavily trundle outside hoping that I won't lose balance in a melting snow puddle or slip on frozen snow ;

And some people prefer wintertime...mind-blowing!
