Next week our lows overnight will be in the 60s and the highs in the 80s! Considering it's July in Texas, I'm stoked! Three days of cool mornings and temperate days - then back to the oven again.

California is 163,696 mi, ranges from 3232′ N to 42 N latitude, and climbs from below sea level to 14,500 ft above sea level, yet people generalize the entire state's climate based on a 5 mile wide strip of coast less than 200 miles long.

I just read a notation on social media that it is going to be a whopping 88 degrees farenheit in London today, and people are headed for the pub or whatever to escape the heat.

Meanwhile, here in Texas, a "cold front" has come in and for the next few days the highs are going to be in the upper 80s and lows in the mid 60s and I am as happy as a clam! Planning outdoor things, all stoked up, etc.

Perspective. And AC. Two things that can make a huge difference in one's perception of weather.

Maybe they aren't as vocal, but I'm pretty sure they are there. I know every summer we get an uptick in the number of people to the TN forum looking for a milder climate. Plenty of halfbacks, and I suppose they count.
I definitely wanted to move back from the Gulf Coast states to a slightly colder area.

And humblebrag- today it's 64f here at 11am in northeast TN. All my windows are open, I'm listening to the birds singing, with rain and thunder in the distance. LOVIN' IT!

Y'all soft. I wear sweatshirts down to the 20s particularly if its sunny. November in Chicago has average highs in the 40s. That's def sweatershirt weather. Hell I stay wearing flannel shirts with no jackets well into November up here in Minny.

I appreciate summer a lot more up north, and it's not necessarily because how cold winter is, but rather just how idyllic summer is. It can get hot, as it should, but not for too long. It gets JUST warm enough to go swimming most days, but cools off enough at night for a pleasant walk that doesn't feel like you're walking inside a dishwashing machine.


Also, camping is more doable here. I can't imagine trying to camp where the lows in the summer are above 70 most days. It's so hard for me to sleep at night when it's hot. An afternoon nap? Sure. A healthy 6-8 hour sleep? God no.

That's what I remember about Denver's summer. Yeah, it can be hot, but once the sun goes down, it's almost chilly.

Well my SO is in Fort Hood and he has to sleep outside for training and with how hot it is down here, I don't envy him! If God forbid he gets deployed to Kuwait, the weather there makes anywhere in Texas seem like a cool mountain village.
