A week more of 90-100 degree weather and yes I'd gladly take a month of rain and cold.
I just went on a walk and it felt humid and a little muggy which is weird for this area to me at least but it was nice.

What is everyones obsession with living in a oven for all 12 months out of the year?

Do you guys not want to have seasons?
YOU may drip in sweat; WE get used to it, and love it
but it's ok, it works the other way around to
you are completely comfortable in freezing weather, I personally throw a jacket on if it get's below 70, 40's are cold to me, and 30's are like retardedly cold to me

But I like San Antonio's version of seasons, and I understand that some people may not. I only wish it snowed more often.

But today, it's 89F, the sun's out, there a nice breeze, and it's beautiful outside! So enjoy your snow in April- more "oven" for me

Actually, during the winter months, metro Atlanta still gets its share of freezing rain (which is the worst winter weather in my opinion) so you do still have icing and such.

The difference is freezing rain in the South doesn't accumulate and stick around like snow in the North.

I'll take snow over freezing rain anyday. At least us here in Michigan know how to handle snow.

Heat doesn't bother me per se... It is the humidity...I'd rather have 95 and no humidity than 80 and humidity... the south east to me is both hot AND humid. very uncomfortable. I have somewhat longer hair and athletic so I sweat very easily, esp when I have to wear business dress clothes everyday...

Good point. I was in south Florida last week, and their 80 degrees feels MUCH different than NY's 80 degrees. It was 80 degrees here in NYC just a few days after I left FL. MUCH more comfortable here in NY since we don't have like 70% humidity.

Never been to Florida, but going to NY/NJ in the summer, I was like it is HUMID! So I can only imagine Florida.

Especially from just doing normal activities... like uhh, stepping outside for 5 minutes and dripping in sweat???

Also found this...

When a person moves from a cold climate to a hot climate, adaptive changes occur in their sweating mechanisms. This process is referred to as acclimatisation: the maximum rate of sweating increases and its solute composition decreases.

Probably why lots of people from low humidity or colder weather hate Florida, and why people from Florida can't stand anything under 60 degrees.
