Also who would ever live in a place like your JUNE, 12 days in a row over 95 with 90% humidity, with a high 0f 99, two days straight where the temperature was 98 with a low of 83. 3 to 4 months, still dreaming.
My bad, it didnt hit the 30s like i thought. But it hit the 40s, and BTW the humidity levels were not in the 80%'s during the peak hours of the day. The humidity is at its highest during the overnight hours when the temps cool down.. During the day when the suns out, those humidity levels in april were probably at 30-40% (during june when the temps hit over 95 for a few days, the humidity levels werent in the 90%'s, maybe they were that high at night). So like im saying, april for the most part is WARM, breezy, not so humid, with an exception of a FEW cool days.. Its not hot and unbearable in April.

Even right now, in the middle of july, almost noon, its 88 degrees with 66% humidity. Its not HELL, toughen up man.

Look at it this way...you can always warm up in the cold, but there's only so much you can take off to cool off.

Southern summers hands down.

southern summers are the worst. Especially areas that have high humidity levels.

You guys do realize that there is no right or wrong answer here. It is a matter of personal preference. It's interesting that it's so evenly split. And frankly, I'm glad to know that at least 50% of the people don't want to move south!

Yes, it is definitely a personal preference. I prefer to live in the nordic belt, though.

Some folks here sound a little sad.

I think the only people who really should bicker about the heat/cold are those who either work outside everyday for extended periods of time, have medical conditions that are sensitive to extreme temperatures, or those without proper air conditioning.

But many of you probably spend no more than 1 hr outside each day lol.

Even if someone doesn't work outside, they might like to spend time outside in their spare time.

Well if they get burnt up or frozen that's their fault lol. But think about those of us who have to be outside for hours at a time.

Trust me, I spend way more than one hour outside a day normally. Right now I'm on here to get my mind off "other stuff" (yes, I'm talking about work )
