It is HOT here today - 84 degrees! Record highs. This is a huge change considering it snowed on Wednesday!

I was up in the mountains of NH today and it was about 20F cooler than in the valley. At The Basin in Franconia notch the snow was still melting into the Pemigewasset River. It was a raging torent.

It's going to feel like you're back in Florida

I hate it when it's this hot this early. Hot weather is nice but it wears out it's welcome past the 4th of July.

However, the city itself and the warm parts of the year more than make up for the crummy winter weather.
To each his own. I find the winter weather to offset any positives about the city itself and the warmer months.

I also don't understand how someone would want to put up with heat for long stretches of the year. It takes a toll on your body because you have to deal with sweating, having to replace fluids constantly and having wet clothes. Even in a dry heat, you still sweat but it evaporates fast so you don't realize it. You can only do so much swimming and or boat rides in the summer. Here in Los Angeles, I'd say it is warm to hot for about 4.5-5 months of the year. I say 5 because it really starts warming up in June and can last all the way into November some years. I've even seen temperatures in the 90s in November a few years back. We can even have weather in the 80s in March too. Nothing is automatic in LA. In extreme cases, it can be hot up to 6 months, we're talking half the year. I can't imagine how people can live in tropical climates and put up with it

I love winter. We hardly get winter where I live, and I hate that. I love how snow makes everything look, and I like the refreshing biting cold. It just does something to you. Well for me, it invigorates me. And one of the best feelings I think is laying down in about two feet of snow all bundled up in a warm coat. I don't like hot weather at all, and humidity just kills me. Summer is tiring for me. I'd rather play outside in the dead of winter than the summer. You can always put more clothing on to get warm, but you can only take so much off to get cool. I don't think I can live somewhere that doesn't get a full winter. It messes with my internal clock when it's 50 degrees in January.
