I do understand but the OP asked about moving from SC, GA and NC. I think the statements you quoted are made with tongue in cheek to a certain extent but to me there is certainly a ring of truth to it. I am used to four distinct seasons and personally find the heat here does last forever!

Except it doesn't. Colorful embellishments are okay for casual conversation, but not when you have someone looking for reliable information. We should be as objective as possible.

Ha!

Had to add that the forecast for the next three days in my town is: FRI: 10873 ; SAT: 10973 ; SUNDAY: 10473

This is low-country South Carolina.

Take your hottest day in the Carolinas and imagine that for 4 months. That is Houston. Sometimes the air is so heavy (like yesterday) that it is almost difficult to breathe. I never experienced that in Mississippi (where I am from) or the Carolinas. The trade off is that you have about 6 months of really nice weather (November-April). In the Carolinas, you really can't say any month is that nice.

I grew up in the Piedmont of NC and, to be completely honest, there's not a lot of difference in the daytime weather during the summer in Houston. It's hot, it can be humid, but it's not completely unbearable. A lot of days there's at least something of a breeze blowing that helps. To me, the big difference is the lack of a cool down at night. We've recently had nights were it was still 88* at midnight...and the humidity jumps like crazy at sundown.

I think you'll manage the weather just fine here.

Perfect example of the ridiculous exaggerations. Not unexpected from ol' Davie Boy, though.

One of the more sensible posts in this thread. The Carolinians are validating what I've known to be true.

For what it's worth!

Climate of Houston - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Climate of Charlotte, North Carolina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



I lived north of Charlotte and will say again while it certainly does have some hot days, not as many and for not as long.

I'm sure no one would disagree with that.

Up to the old Houston Homie tricks. You have alrwady firmly established your lack of knowledge about the Carolinas. Perhaps I should have said North Carolina. South Carolina does get pretty nasty too.

I'm glad to see that you're finally able to admit that you're often quite careless with your observations. I knew you had it in you.
