I came from NYC, and while it is NOT Alaska, it might as well have been. That's what THAT winter feels like to me. Over here, if you don't like the heat, stay in the AC all day long. Unfortunately, if you have to work outside, then you're fried. Maybe you can go to Las Vegas where it's a dry heat of 120 degrees in the summer. California might have its nice parts but it's not inexpensive there either.

I don't know what part of Philly is good enough with a fan but in NY, a fan wasn't much help. It is outrageously muggy and uncomfortable and stiffling.

yea but keep in mind vpcats,its all temporary,and areas like nyc get colder than philly because nyc has more bodies of water surrouding it,and who can honestly stay in the ac all day long? unless they dont work and are bums living off the the system getting checks, i dont see how that is possible,as i said before,yo uhave to come out to run errands and do stuff outside the house,and personally i rather do it in cooler temps, up north,truly gets perfect weather,the transitions from summer to winter,then winter to fall,gets perfect weather,65,to 70,to 75 beautiful breezes outside,i missed that

Outofthematrix what type of errands are you doing that exposes you to the outside for such long periods of time?As for perfect weather well I grew up in Jersey right across Manhattan and the summers aren't any picnic either! It's not only humid but you get heatwaves with temps over 100 degrees ( something Miami has never had) plus add the pollution and you can actually see the air!
Oh and those people who sit in the AC all day are called office workers not bums! I should know since i'm one of them!

never said I couldn't deal with the summers up north but Miami doesn't have heatwaves either and what I couldn't stand was the frigid temps in the winter. You can have the brown slush!

I live most of the year in Washington DC and a few months in Miami. (college student) Here is the thing the weather in DC is great during most of the spring most of fall. But the weather is hot and humid during the summer and pretty cold during the winter. Miami is hot but it does not get as hot as other cities in the US temps never go over 100 degrees, the humidity is bad but its better than 110 in Arizona or 100 in Chicago. But Miami perfect weather during the winter early spring is worth it IMO.

As to the OP, okay thats your opinion I would much rather deal with some 97 degree days in the summer then have to deal with 10-25 degree nights, snow or ice. While just about most of the country still gets those 95 degree days every summer too. Sure not as often but they are still there. Miami does not get cold, ice, snow.

I do not think anyone gets really used to 100 percent humidity but you just deal with it.
Also lets not forget the clean air Miami has, one of the least polluted major cities in the world!

If you do not believe that most Miami residents hate the weather here, just observe how much they panic when air conditioning breaks down.
They panic over everything. I remember police guarding water pallets before TS Eduardo fizzled out a couple years ago. I guess the machismo was so evident Publix hired 2 cops to deter macho men.
