But you're leaving Michigan to move to Georgia?

I go to New York in the Fall and Winter, to ESCAPE South Florida. It was 9 degrees and snowing this past January in NY when I went. LOVELY. I went out at 7 AM in the morning just to feel the cold and the snow on my face. Far, far better than 80 degrees and HUMID Florida.

I am not a fan of the heat and humidity here in GA. 100 degrees with super high humidity gives me bad headaches and keeps me stuck in the house. At least with the cold, you can always layer up as opposed to the heat where you have no real option. I really miss the snow too!

Not by choice, by necessity. There are NO JOBS in Michigan, and I can make a living in Georgia.

Are you from a northern state? How do you deal with the heat and humidity down there? I can't imagine staying cooped up inside all summer. 100 degrees and humid is insane.

If you can't deal with heat & humidity that well, why are you moving to GA? It gets really hot there and if you can't handle heat well, you'll be spending your summers indoors.

It has been unusually hot in Southern California the past two days, but it will be back in the low 70s by the weekend. I prefer 70s/80s and don't like these really hot days, but 98 in SoCal is more comfortable than high 80s on the East Coast/South. SoCal isn't an oven- most of the time, including summer, it is very pleasant.

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 like being able to go outside ANYTIME of night or day in shorts and a t-shirt and be completely comfortable.

I see it differently.

I think there is nothing better than wearing pants, a long sleeve shirt, a jacket, seeing snow on the ground and not feelling hot even though you are wearing layers of clothing.

I think 10 degrees is a good temp
