Agree. It's fifty here in DC and I think it's too hot. Was 92 in Corpus Christi this weekend. No thanks.

I love Chicago, NYC, and Philly as cities. They're my three favorite cities in the country as cities, but they have horrible weather also. Nearly all summer long, Philly was hotter than many places in the south. Taking the subway in NYC during a heatwave when the heat index is 110* is possibly one of the worst experiences anyone can ever go through in their life. Philly gets hotter, but at least the subway platforms aren't as hot. Chicago winters are brutal, but worth it for living in such a beautiful city. I wouldn't deal with that weather to live in a city like Fargo or something (no offense to Fargo).
I find that hard to believe. A lot of Texas cities had heat indexes above 96 degrees at 11 pm in the summer.

Yep, but going naked in 95 degree weather could make things worse.

This was my first winter in Texas. We've had only a handful of days below freezing. All other days have been 50-75 degrees. I haven't needed anything thicker than a sweater. I'm sure this weather might be nice for someone who lived in Minnesota for their entire life and is tired of snow. But I really miss having seasons.

I remembered that Feb was usually the worst month for winter in Dallas. It seems that the ice/snow storm always happens on or near Valentines.

Minus Texas haha. Texas heat is a different beast in the South. I was living in Philly for the summer for an internship, but go to school in Louisville, and have family and friends here. One of my best friends lives in Raleigh. So I mainly used Raleigh and Louisville/Lexington as a comparison, and almost day Philly was hotter than both. I can't remember if the DEEP South as significantly different, but Kentucky and North Carolina are Southern.

I thought it's been abnormally mild/warm in the South so far this winter.

That's fall in most places. Again, it was in the 90's in Corpus a few days ago

I think Kentucky is probably more like Ohio weather wise than say Georgia.
