If you have good insulation, radiant barrier, and an efficient A/C . .. It's all about adjusting to the climate and what you can tolerate.

^^^makes sense. many older buildings up north may not have ac units installed, so those temps can indeed get quite stiffling.

Well those temps are not uncommon even up north during summer. It just doesn't stay hot for that long like in Houston. But 95-100F in PA or NJ is not very surprising.

Meanwhile it has been upper 90's in school here in Austin the last two weeks and school goes on.

But if we get an ice storm or snow we let out.

It's just what you're used to.

Me too. I used to visit my dad in Chicago in the summer and it was hot. The difference is probably the nighttime temperatures are a little cooler there. And they had lightning bugs! I loved that. They arenít too thick around here and Iíve heard various theories, from being too hot, to fire ants eating them, to mosquito spraying. I never spent a winter in Chicago though. I hear itís pretty brutal. Iím not a fan of cold.

People whine because they whine. Speaking as someone who has LIVED in both Chicago and Houston for over 20 years each.. No way..Houston's summers are way more extreme. Even if Chicago gets a few days of equivalent heat, its just not the same.
