Most of Arizona gets so hot during the summer that the sun in the sky has to cool off (in the little dipper) BTW Phoenix and Tucson don't get rain during the summer,that liquid is the water from the cactuses coming out due to them melting in the sun. When Phoenix and Tucson get below 110,people start putting parkas and snow boots and ear muffs on. And phoenixs winters are hotter than the summers

Do you ever want to know why polar bears are in Alaska? Because they escaped the colder winters in Minnesota. IN minnesota the water and hell is frozen below that's how cold it is.

Living in a place where both hot summers and cold winters are the norm, I'd say cold winters are more preferable than the heat and sticky humidity.

I'd say most of the Midwest/Plains/Northeast has both hot summers AND cold winters (hot being over 90 degrees or over 85 degrees for a month+; cold being below 30 degrees or under 35 degrees for a month+ -- 40 is not "cold"). They get screwed both ways! (Who am I kidding, "WE" get screwed both ways!).

This not true. People in Phoenix love the temps 70-89F, for the most part, and can tolerate the 90sF to a certain extent, but loathe the 100sF from what I've read. And Phoenix winters are most definitely not hotter than the summers. SoCal has warmer winters than Phoenix.

Personally I think that the cold is easier to tolerate than the heat, but actually I prefer comfortable cool or moderately warm temperatures (60F-80F).

I'd rather have a hot summer than a cold winter. My preferred temp is 75-85 F.

I used to like cold over hot but noticed that, as I get older, I tend more and more to pick warm over the brrr....

Anything as long as it isn't too extreme. I don't like it so cold I have to wear something that makes me feel like I can't breathe or move, and not so hot that the only way to walk across town without getting dripping wet with sweat and smelly is to literally pour icewater on my head. Here in Maryland we don't get more than a few days of either in a year. Hot, yes, but not normally THAT hot, and cold, yes, but not usually THAT cold.
