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.
Ugh. Sounds like I'm in for a rough, sweaty summer.

It gets even more humid on Long Island since we're an island, but I can say that it gets much worse in south Florida. You haven't experienced true humidity until you've gone to Florida in the summer, lol. I've been to the caribbean in the summer months, and it still isn't as bad as Florida. I guess the islands get a breeze, so that's why.

I would much rather have the snow than freezing rain. When we get freezing rain here, the pine trees with their shallow roots start coming down under the weight (many times on houses) and the crazy drivers fly over the icy roads causing countless accidents. I'll take the snow anyday.

I wouldn't mind a light dusting of snow but we get too much here in Massachusetts. Snow in the South is a lot different because you know it will melt soon and not much will even fall.

I'm loving the weather we've had for the past few days. Low 60s during the day, upper 40s at night. Warm enough to go jacketless during the day, cool enough at night you can sleep comfortably with the window cracked.

On Sunday our high will be 83! That's too hot for this time of the year. Let's save the 80s for Shore Season.

And places that have hot weather tend to have hot women, plus they wear less clothing

Heck, I lived in NH for 10 years and loved the cold weather and snow when I lived there. You still got 80's and 90's in the summer and fall and spring were very nice.
