Um, I don't know of many houses in the US without a sidewalk near them.

Plus, even if you dont have sidewalk you still need to shovel the driveway, because someone might walk across the bottom of it along the street.

Almost nobody self-insures, does that tell you ANYTHING?

Your dream house is become more and more ridiculous by the day. First you'll self insure, then you'll live without water turned on all winter, now no sidewalk?

Upper 70's is when it starts getting a little uncomfortable.

We don't have a sidewalk. I live on a cul-de-sac. But if you don't shovel your driveway and someone like the mailman, paperboy, even anyone dropping off adds falls and hurts themselves because you didn't do your best to keep your driveway clear, they could sue you.

Our mailbox is by our front door so we need to clear our driveway. You might be able to get around this in a rural area with a mailbox by the road. (but then you might have to deal with vandalism; teenagers driving by with baseball bats )

Okay, maybe some don't have sidewalks, but no matter what, you're going to have to shovel SOMETHING, NAH.

Thanks. I didn't think it was that surprising. But then again I might be the only person outside not grinning after a heat waves leaves and it drops back into the 70's F.

Too bad Uncle Sam is still not impressed.


BTW I wasn't being sarcastic before. I'd really like to know if you ever enjoyed being in a hot tub or sauna, however briefly you might have used either.

Just a friendly question because most people seem to, even if they're the kind of people who complain when it goes above 90 F.

Actually, tolerance for heat isn't that unusual. I've found that a LOT less people complain during the hot humid summer, than people who complain during the cold winter. Just my experience.

Hey, I got an idea!!
Why don't you actually find someone who lvies in Oil City and ask them how many times they have to break out the shovel to deal with snow??

Sleeping till noon....how productive....

Maybe that depends on what you call hot weather.

In my experience around here, few people (if any) complain at 85 F, but a fair number of people complain above 95 F, especially at even hint of mugginess. That's usually when the TV news warn people to avoid strenous activity, sometimes to avoid being outdoors all together; I laugh at those warnings and sometimes go for a run, or a fast bike ride, simply because the TV is telling me not to. I like raising a few eyebrows from my neighbours.

Probably just as many will complain about 98 F as afternoon highs in the 20's or teens.

LOL I would never survive -31 degrees(-50 with windchill?) How do you stay warm? I have to salute you sir if you can handle this kind of cold. I dont think I can handle anything below 0 to 10 degrees and is why I dont want to relocate any further north than Pennsylvania and I might decide to settle in south Ohio or West Virginia if I find a nice town with nice affordable houses.

Rance, whats your melting temperature? 50? 55? 60? How well do you handle heat? Im curious
