I don't understand why it is a difficult concept for you. I do not care which one had a higher great index. They had zero meaning to me. None at all.

I do not care which one is "hotter". I care about humidity.

I prefer the dry heat over humid heat. It is more comfortable to me. May not be for everyone, but it is for me.

You do not get to tell others what they enjoy or find more comfortable.

A personal preference is nothing you can every be "right " about.
Again, even with Houston's humidity factored in, the heat of Phoenix will STILL feel more overbearing than that of Houston's. Don't let the humidity boogie-man scare you.

Again, I simply do not care..... Houston is unbearably humid to me which makes it unlivable in the summer, while I get by in Phoenix just fine

No amount of blather can change that

Feel free to keep trying though, it is kind of amusing ....

Maybe I'll blow your mind further and let you know I prefer summer in Denver more than summer in Rochester NY, Minneapolis or Philadelphia and I didn't even check a heat index table to determine that

Humidity is hell. I dont how people can like it. The body STRUGGLES to cool down in that weather. What does that tell you?

California's weather is so much more comfortable. There are some days with humidity, and it sucks like anywhere else. Thank God those days are few.

I respectfully disagree with this too. We lived in Phoenix during the summer months and yes, of course it was hot, but it didn't feel as bad as we were warned that it would. You avoid the sun in the middle of the day and by evening it has cooled down to about 95 degrees which somehow actually feels temperate, probably because of the lack of humidity. We went for walks in the evening in the summer and it was perfect.

OTOH, I have been to Florida and Charleston, SC in the summer and it almost felt difficult to breathe because of the dense humidity in the air. We get humidity in the summer here in Michigan, but not the kind of "I feel like I have a hot, wet towel over my face" humidity that we have experinced in the Southeast in the summertime.

I love both areas and would not let the summer weather stop me if I wanted to move to either area, just as the cold winter weather does not keep me from loving Michigan, I'm just saying that for us the dry heat felt much more tolerable than the wet heat.
