How is this even a question. Houston, by far, has the worst summers in the USA. I wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy for someone to walk through downtown Houston in a business suit in the middle of summer. Heat, oppressive humidity to the point where it's hard to breath, bugs biting you, ect.....

AZ has far worse summer heat. Keep trying to convince yourself it doesn't.

Spoken like someone who hasn't been to the Desert Southwest. Besides, in warm/hot climates, these are the business suits:

Hmmm, well seeing as mom's family lives in the Phoenix metro and I've been to both Phoenix and Vegas in the summer, not sure what you are even talking about. I've also been to Florida in the summer and sorry Houston is more unbearable than Florida too. Also, were you being serious with that picture or were you making a Joke.....?

If this were true, then you would know that both Vegas and Phoenix regularly see hotter temps and higher heat indices than Houston has ever seen.

Florida is a large state, got to be more specific with where you went to. You also don't give any indication that you've ever been to Houston.

I, thus, conclude that your argument is baseless.

Lived in each Houston and Miami during the summer months, Miami is much more livable with those breezes and cloud cover.

Florida has this to a far greater extent. More evidence that you have no clue of what you are talking about. Do some research, then, perhaps, you can actually carry a reasonable discussion. Your credibility is in shambles.

Stop living in an alternative universe where Houston has moderate/pleasant summers.
Literally all you do is talk about Houston summers aren't bad while you simultaneously rag on Florida, rag on the desert southwest, hell..you are probs gonna tell me that summer in NYC is worse than summer in Houston, and of course Dallas summer is worse than Houston's..am I right? Goodbye

All these cities have pleasant summers. The real heat is in the Desert Southwest.

I've actually defended Florida's summers on this thread; go read through this thread to see. But, alot of the arguments you used to back your claim of Houston's so-called "worst summers in the US" (bugs, humidity, etc) apply even more to Florida. Keep that in mind.

I never ragged on any place, just stating hard facts. It is hard fact that the Desert Southwest is hotter than anywhere in the South, both in actual temp, and in heat index.

And, yes, Dallas is worse than Houston in summer; hotter temps, drier conditions, lack of clouds and Gulf breeze, etc.
