EXACTLY. I do not want to live in a place that is 70 degrees in the winter.

I expect to see snow in the winter
Snow is overrated...LOL. I say that as a chicago native. It's nice around Christmas time, but after that it gets annoying. But hey whatever floats your boat.

You can always move here - right now it's 45 degrees and raining, and it's supposed to snow tomorrow. We're still waiting on spring. It seems like you'd love Michigan weather.

I have been to Florida numerous times and I can tolerate their heat (I guess it's the ocean breezes) more than here, but I can still tolerate it here. I love summer!!!!

I absolutely LOVE hot weather, but I sometimes wonder if that's because we only get it in small doses here.

To me, there's nothing better than those hot, humid, 90-degree summer days. I like being able to go outside at midnight or 6:00 AM in shorts and a t-shirt and be completely comfortable. I've also never lived in an air-conditioned house. I wait all winter for the warm stuff, I'm not going to spend it in A/C!!

I think I probably live in the wrong state.

I personally think summer weather is the best weather to be outdoors in. Some people dislike the sweating, but it doesn't bother me, at least not at this stage in my life. However, when I was a teen, I longed to live some place cooler than Houston. Houston's humidity caused havoc to my tender skin, making it overly susceptible to acne. But, now I'm an adult, and I don't have those same problems, and I've satisfied the settlement aspects of my wanderlust (at least until I'm transferred for work or I'm retired), and I prefer to live in a place like Houston. At this stage in life, the humidity is great for my skin, and I no longer have to contend with finding storage space for two separate seasonal wardrobes. I can dress the same in Houston year-round. The only thing that changes from summer to winter is the addition of a jacket.

different stroke for different folks. i prefer not to live in an area that looks dead for 5-6 months out the year like it is in most northern climates. i'm in chicago and even though the plant life is dormant, i would prefer to live where everything in alive 24/7/365 days a year. plus, sure it can be exciting when robins and the other spring life returns after bone chilling weather and cloudy skies for weeks/months on end but i would prefer that they never left in the 1st place! there's a reason why they left and i think i want to leave with them.

You need to move to Florida. One thing I love about Michigan is the LACK of heat and humidity (most of the time). I love those 70 degree summer days, but I can't take the extreme heat.

C'mon down to Florida. Upper 80's for the past month, slowly but surely creeping into the lower to mid 90's every day for the summer.... and winter usually is no lower than mid 70's to low 80's...

I live for heat and humidity, Florida is perfect.
