I basically simply love the CHANGE - and like you, I don't think it's overrated. I love weather patterns and shifts and I find weather in general to be fascinating. I'm also one of those geeks who stays up to watch meteor showers and buys eclipse glasses so I can watch eclipses!

I love big storms and fabulous cloud formations.

Personally though, one thing I don't care for is long, cold winters. I prefer four evenly spaced out seasons with mild winters - a couple of snowfalls but NO SNOW SHOVELING - LOL. I don't like slush or piles of dirty snow laying around - and I sure don't want it around in March or April!

And some people would rather have a tradeoff and have that rather than a long,hot summer. I get that, but being born and bred in the south, long hot summers are the norm and don't get to me.

Till September. Then I go on vacation somewhere and I'm all better!

It's too hot here already in Austin! Upper 90's bumping 100 now! After next week it's forcasted to be 104-105 even saw 106! Too friggin' early in the summer for that!! Heck, it's not even officially summer yet! It gets toasty by 10-11 am so I have to get out very early to get my walking done. Too hot in the evening to do much patio sitting too. Last few summers have been somewhat tolerable but from what I hear this summer might be a scorcher! Ugh!

yeah, I looked up next week's forecast, heat index could be 107+. From my memory, September can be worse than June.

I can deal with a warm winter....if I'm in Florida. But every now and then, not always.

I like the change that happens from April to June, but if every month was like June that'd be cool, too. I dislike fall immensely and find it to be a quite depressing time of year, mostly because I can already anticipate how tired I will be of winter by March.

My husband is working out around Hobbs, NM and he sent me a picture of his truck thermometer - it was 112 degrees. YIKES!

The last two summer really spoiled me but I have a feeling it's going to be a hot one this year.

Change is good and I would lose my mind in a climate like Los Angeles or Hawaii where the weather pretty much is the same or is very predictable.

Big storms are one of my favorites too and last summer I got to see a gigantic thunderhead form within the space of about 10 minutes and the sky suddenly go from light grey to almost black then *BOOM* one heck of a thunderstorm. It was so close that lightening hit the transformer for the factory and set it on fire and hit the factory roof.

Ha ha we are a bit opposite on long summers vs. long winters. I am happiest when winter runs late October through mid-April and love living here in the Snowbelt March here is pretty interesting because it is a bit bipolar and prone to crazy snowstorms and I've gotten a snowstorm every year for my birthday so far.

I do remember living in *HOT* climates though and spending a lot of time in the water. DH thought that I was going to grow fins I spent so much time in the water.

Yep. Its gonna be brutal. The inside of my house is currently warmer than outside. Its just awful. If this is how hot May is... I am afraid of June and July lol. I just hope we have a nice fall this year with no early snow, and a nice snowy winter.
