I've lived in every region of the US except for the West Coast. The Mid-Atlantic region (MD, VA, NC, and SC) offers 4 distinct seasons which last about the same amount of time. Summers are hot and winters tend to be more mild.

The lower Midwest (KS, MO, IN, OH, lower IL) offer 4 seasons with more mild summers, but harsher winters.

The worst area I lived for 4 seasons was the Southwest. Summer lasts 6mo, you don't get a real fall, winter feels gross, and spring is like summer just a bit cooler.

Most of us are outside all the time from June through September and really into late November often. And since our winters aren't so brutal you'll see people out all year long.

The sun angle and heat/humidity is brutal in the southern 2/3 of the US in my opinion. I would move to the Upper Midwest in a minute, but haven't secured a different position there yet. I hate temperatures above 85F and below 0F temperatures don't phase me in the least.

I am with you, 85 is the perfect temperature (anything above is just unnecessary heat), I could also do without below 0 though (it can get old).

I prefer winter over summer, I've been on nearly every trail in Vilas County, WI (by the UP of Michigan) with feet of snow on the ground. Cold is no issue for me, and that area is generally far colder than the Twin Cities. I did recently apply for an IT position in Grand Rapids, MN. It looks to be a nice area in terms of outdoor recreation. I prefer smaller cities/towns.

Ah well, to each his own. I prefer milder winters myself, though I do want to be able to wear cute boots and scarves from around November through February. That's enough for me! AND NO SNOW SHOVELING.

Looks like 90s pretty common in October.

And looks like they hit the 90's after 9/13:https://www.accuweather.com/en/us/da...onyr=9/01/2017


It's hot in Dallas usually. What's wrong with that?
