No doubt the horrid Southern heat and humidity...up North you can always throw on another layer of clothing...here ...well you can only strip so far...LOL..Stepping outside for one minute and you are sweating and your breathing suffers.

northern winters are more unbearable, hands down, I can wake up on a summer day, go fishing early in the morning before it gets to hot, go to beach, I would hate to wake up to freezing temps, snow, ice, dont get me wrong, hot and humid summers suck too, just my opionion.

It does stink getting up early in the morning for work when it's cold out, but nothing beats coming home when it's cold/snowy out, getting under a nice warm blanket in front of the fire, and sipping hot chocolate

Or sitting outside on the porch kicking your feet up drinking a nice glass of Iced Tea enjoying action that's going on away from you on the street while there is a nice Summer breeze. See. Both has its advantages.

Snow, ice storms, dreary skies, uncomfortable winter clothing, and dead trees...or sipping a mojito on the beach?

One of the easiest questions I've ever had to answer...!!!

Hehe, yeah. I need to go skiing again. It isn't easy from where I live. Gotta fight traffic from one end of the city to the other end, then pay 2 bridges to get off the island. I've only gone once, when I was 13. Been meaning to go for a while
