I would choose cold weather over hot ANY day of the week. It's easier to get warm than get cool!

Answer - yes...or there is this wonderful invention called air conditioning that makes living in the hot summers so much bearable!

Now, if we were talking 100 years ago, I'm not sure I could have lived in the south either, especially to sleep at night; not sure how people did it back then. But having lived in both climates, I will take hot summers over cold winters any day.

If I'm sitting inside my house or at a restaurant, that's fine. But when I'm out with friends at a bar... or just doing something outside, it's a different story and unbarable to me.

There is this wonderful invention called central heat that makes living in the cold winters so much more bearable!

No **** there's A/C, but its not all the time and its not instant.

Walk from apartment to car (hope you're not in a suit), sweat
Get in car thats been sitting in the sun and is now a hotbox, sweat
A/C in car finally cools it down, stop sweating
Get out of car, walk to school/work/whatever, sweat
Get inside, still takes about 10 minutes to cool down

By this time, whatever you were wearing is drenched, the gel in your hair is running, for girls its probably sticking to your face, etc.

Yeah, that sounds nice.

Cool off in a pool, lake, or the ocean. Swimming is a great and fun way to cool off.

Cold air is refreshing and it tends to give me more energy, but I'd still rather put up with a long, humid summer than a long, grey winter. Plus, accumulated winter precipitation can be a real pain.

Part of why I enjoy chilly weather so much is because of the fact that it's such a novelty, living in the Gulf Coast. But weeks and weeks of icy weather, after the holiday season has passed, would get irritating in the same way hot weather after Independence Day is.
