Oh, I guess you've never experienced summer in Kansas. LOL! It's like walking in a blast furnace in the western 2/3 of the state and a sauna in the eastern 1/3. I'm ready for longer springs and autumns... especially looking forward to the beautiful colors of the deciduous tree leaves changing.

I don't have to live in Kansas to look at the data and see that you are not going to get a "better" summer. It's going to be hotter and hotter for longer. And yes, I looked it up and read that it's humid in the east, with the rest of the state having a high, dry heat.

But I think that it evens out. A good thing about the south is there is a lot of air conditioning available. Growing up in New England, they frowned on A/C. It was only really hot for a week to a few weeks, but it can horrible with out air conditioning.

You might acclimate to the heat, too. When you live in warmer conditions that happens. I haven't lived up north in about 16 years and the heat just doesn't bother me like it use to.

But the locals complain about the heat. A lot. When we first moved here a lady in a store was going on and on about how hot it was. It was 78 degrees! That's a cold front in Florida!

The locals complain about the weather all the time. I guess it's something to do.

You could be in for a shock during the summertime. Originally from Birmingham ( usually warmer than Knoxville), and having lived in Kansas City (compares to E Kansas) for 7 years, I can count on 2 hands the number of "hot" days in Kansas City that approached the misery index of a normal hot day in the Southeast. It is much more humid in the Southeast than in Kansas.
