What Weather Climates Could You Not Tolerate? Not just temperatures, but other factors as well.

I live in NC. For me, I'm fine with most climates. I love snow and I love the tropical climate of Florida. Wind chills and high humidity are no problem. As long as I can dress appropriately for the weather, I'm fine anywhere and am very adaptable. BUT, there are 2 places/areas I've visited more than once that I know that the climates there would be beyond my personal tolerance level: New Orleans and the Seattle/Portland region.

Humidity usually doesn't bother me, but it was so overwhelmingly humid in New Orleans that it was hard to breathe. It was just too much.

The PNW in the Seattle and Portland areas stay too cool in the summer for my liking. Water temperatures too chilly to swim for me......I find the lingering cloudiness/drizzle/rain to be something that would put me in a depression over time. I like the occasional rainy day like we get here in the Charlotte area, but I just need more sun than that.

No right or wrong opinions here, just personal preferences.

Anywhere in the US outside the Gulf Coast/South Atlantic coastal areas; it all be would be too dry, too cold, and/or too continental for my tastes.

Humid - both continental and subtropical. Been there, done that. Being able to chew the air you're breathing sucks.

I can do anything except very cold. I've set Boston as pretty much my lower limit of winter weather. Anything colder I don't think is happening. I lived in Chicago and don't think I could do it again.

I live in California. I paid over a $1 million for a home so I never have to tolerate anything less than perfection. Worth every penny.
