Let me rephrase: we can do that and we can also do the blanket and hot chocolate for certain during the fall and winter.

I don't understand how weather would force me to do the same thing everyday.

Some days I can sit on the porch and sip Ice Tea or go in my house, crank up the AC and get all cozy under the covers.

Or on those chilly days when were down in the low 70s I can turn on my fireplace and sip on my hot chocolate

lol please...putting on the AC is NOT the same. Ask my mom who lives in Florida and longs for fall and winter. It's not the same. When you're bundled up outside in a winter coat when it's 30 degrees out, it's really nice starting the fireplace and watching the snow fall outside while sipping hot chocolate.

Kind of like how it isn't the same if I were to crank up the heat and sip iced tea looking at my window.

Contrary to popular belief, Texas can get pretty chilly itself with temps getting down to as low as the teens. Soooo. I guess Texans can do what you do in the winter as well.

Well yeah, those that are in north Texas probably have similar weather to the mid-atlantic. I know that. But he lives in Houston, where the weather isn't all that different from Florida. I really hope he's joking about putting a fireplace on in the 70s...why you would even need a fireplace in south Texas or in Florida is beyond me.

Northern summers are too hot for me. There's no way I could live thru a southern summer!
