I used to remember more June Bugs flying around in summer, too, but I hardly notice any at all now. (Whether that is due to humidity increases or climate change I don't know).

Are you in Colorado Springs?

Colorado is nice. I have family all over the state, from Denver to Trinidad, and I think it would be a nice place to live. Pueblo is too much like a desert, so I wouldn't like it there. But the high elevations throughout most of the state mitigate much of the heat and humidity, which is ideal in my book. But some people say it's too dry and not humid enough. I never stayed long enough to notice.
Yes, I'm in Colorado Springs but I'm heat-adverse. Even here, I have to have A/C. We can get into the 90's every so often. And during the wildfires we've had over the past 5 years, into the high 90's. And "my" fire, the Waldo Canyon Fire that thankfully missed my house on a block that was hit, it was around 100 degrees that June. Seems we're getting warmer summers and colder winters.

Pueblo hits 100 on a regular basis in the summer, not unusual for them. Although PUB is only 45 miles south, they are about 1500-2000 feet lower than COS.

Idk why, but here in DC, even when it is freezing outside, my room is still hot. So, I have the A/C on.

The high today was about 74 degrees with abundant sunshine. It was GREAT!

Agree about Seattle. Lousy weather- and yes it does rain a lot, plus even when it doesn't rain it's always cloudy. The Weather Channel called Seattle the cloudiest city in America. And it's true.

Summers are very nice in Seattle. Mostly Sunny all summer long and usually not hot. Also, Seattle is warm in the Winter considering how far North it is.

South Florida with its miserable, stifling humidity for most of the year.

Tampa gets just as bad but for 4-5 months. The rest of the year is tolerable to beautiful.
