There is something truly weird about this thread where certain posters iterate over and over again their preferences.

I think some people need to wake up and realize no one cares if you prefer 4-seasons (and that goes for those who prefer always warm, but they're less insistent on this thread).

They didn't have so great a vacation but the rest of us had a blast!

Or when my friends from Belgium visited us in Texas in the spring and thought it was nearly impossible to sit outside on the patio because it was 82 degrees and sunny and they thought it was too hot to even breathe!
I hate to break this to you, but yes, most people think Texas is hot. Texas actually is hot.

This thread asks the question of which you prefer though?

Yes, and you're one of the poster I was referencing.

Give your opinion. But you're obsessively going back to debate your opinion. No one really cares. This was supposed to be kind of a fun thread where people shared their preferences, yet you and some others are trying to 'prove' that their preferences are actually correct.

No one cares, find something more interesting to debate.

And yet here you are. I suspect you're one of the warm weather guys upset at the 4 season people? Relax. Go enjoy the weather guy.

Even better is when those in the south brag about their weather and disdain for snow and then post endless pics saying how magical it is.

I am happy to say, however, that I have not seen a cockroach at all since leaving Texas, let alone in my house.

LOL! I find foreign travel to be an adventure. I need to know where you bought those rose-colored glasses!
Oh they're an adventure, alright - an adventure hopping across one's yard! But like you, I love international travel - and travel within the US to different regions. There is good stuff to be found just about anywhere.

Always good to visit other places, and always good to come back home.

I am sure that flying cockroaches are common along the entire Gulf Coast. Thankfully, I live 3 hours north of Houston so I haven't had a cockroach problem.

You think I don't know that Texas has long, hot summers? I live here. I realize that but thanks for the heads' up anyway.

My point is that I don't mind the long hot summers because I also love the mild winters and gorgeous, gorgeous springs.

You never answered my question by the way - why do you seem to be perturbed that I like the weather where I live? I could live literally anywhere in the US. I chose here. Why does that bother you?

As a 20+ year resident of southern Texas, I can probably count on one hand the number of times in life I've seen a flying water bug. They're completely harmless for the most part, and as long you don't have a habit of leaving doors and unscreened windows open, they stay outside hiding in the grass and trees.
