I'd take the blowing sand and searing heat of my desert home over the threat of hurricanes, tornadoes, and blizzards, any day.

Many people have weak emotional and/or constitutional strength and can only survive in hot, sunny weather. Do you think weakness makes them stupid? Of course not. Just because someone is emotionally or physically feeble does not make them stupid.

Do you mean like asthmatics and people with TB?

Out of curiosity what about the people who can't live in hot or humid climates? Are they too weak, too to take the heat and humidity?

I'd imagine they would be weak to the heat the same way I'm weak to the cold if I were to go up north.

It's not stupid. In fact, having moved back home to New England after college in Maryland, I am gearing up to pack up and move back down to that area, weather being one factor. Winter lasts way too long here, and though I enjoy snow, in Maryland/Virginia it melts within a day or two, here it doesn't have a chance to melt before it snows again and then it gets all brown and disgusting. Weather is not the only reason I am planning to move there, I've always liked it there and it's a decent area to find a teaching job. My parents want to move to Georgia which is too hot for me, but the MD/VA area is at least centrally located, which is nice since I have family up and down the Eastern Seaboard.

Indy is a nice enough city, that operates in the middle. If this city was in sunny Florida near the ocean, I could tolerate it more. The weather here is sooo blaaaahhh! Three months of good, sunny weather, the rest is basically dreary and cloudy. Although it doesn't get EXTREMELY cold for very long, and we don't get much snow, it can get depressing sometime.

All that said, I will be moving to sunny Georgia in the years to come.

People don't mind being cold. If they did, the biggest cities in the world would cease to exist. Lame statement.

GA averages about 10% more sun than Indy. Hardly what I call a big improvement. Its a very minor improvement at best.

If that's days with majority sunshine, then that's 3 more sunny days per month. That makes a difference. I lived in Stone Mountain for 6 years, and the weather overall, is MUCH better (for me). The warmth and sun lasts quite longer throughout the year.
