Summers in NJ are absoutely beautiful, it's the winters I can do without (although with all the global warming, they do seem to be getting milder each year). Each state offers different things to different people. It all depends on what suits your needs. It doesn't mean that one state is better than another.

Come on..........we didn't move until July 27th, and our air was on starting in June. Do you enjoy keeping the house at 85 or something??

Try moving from Jersey to Florida and celebrating holidays. It's kind of pathetic when you keep an old freezer ( not frost free) just to be able to use the ice build up for those snow balls. Halloween isn't much better. Ever carve a pumpkin and leave it outside in the broiling sun for a day? I finally did learn to use the pumpkin of choice in the south - styrofoam

Seriously?? I found this to be one of the hottest summers I've ever experienced in the S. Jersey/Phila. area. It's now October, and it's still uncomfortably hot some days (yesterday, for ex.).

Why?

Just curious.

It seems like in New Jersey more so than in other states I've looked at, people tend to keep coming back to check and re-check and re-re-check...This is just my opinion, but if I were truly happy with my choice of where I was living, I wouldn't feel the need to have to keep cementing that by making comparisons.

Again, only my opinion, but...one is either happy where one is living, or not. No comparisons necessary.

Then again, you may have some other reason for keeping continuous tabs on New Jersey (family members? possible future move back? I don't know)...which is why I'm asking.

Oh, for the record, my sister and son in northern NJ kept complaining that there weren't enough "hot-hot" days that warranted the pool. I mean hot days existed, obviously (remember...this is summer we're talking about) but they wanted more, because the summer is supposed to be, well, hot. ETA: As for humidity being 10% higher than in some southern states...some people are probably that overly affected by only a 10% difference. But frankly...whether you're 75% or 85%, it's humid. As I said, though...if one is very sensitive to increments of humidity change, then obviously New Jersey is not for them; no need to keep checking back about it, you already know whether your body is sensitive in that way or not. I can see checking once in a while out of curiosity, but a day-to-day blow-by-blow of temperature comparison, humidity comparison, etc...I don't know...that's a little over the top, IMO, and goes beyond basic curiosity. There's obviously some other reason for this particular type of behavior.

Now...my family members did alternately mention some days that seemed freakishly warm based on the time they were occurring here and there (including at the moment...Indian summer). And of course there was the usual couple/few days in a row where it was over 90/95 and everybody was freaking out, LOL. I found this (broken link) which shows average temperatures in the very comfortable range...but again, not for everybody. Some people can't stand heat, some people can't stand cold; whatever. Temperature and humidity obviously are not unilaterally good or bad for every person. (shrug) Trying to convince people that just because you can't stand a 10% difference in humidity, or a few degrees difference in temperature, they can't either, doesn't make all that much sense. They already know whether or not they can stand it...right?

I do know for sure that June wasn't 85 degrees throughout! That assertion seems rather silly to me. I hate to say that to a mod, but then again, it was a mod making the assertions, so...what can one do?

<shrug> it really wasn't bad. We didn't hit 100 and I'm hard pressed to remember more than 2 days in the row in the 90's. My neck of the woods (Northwestern NJ) was really nice. A lot of rain early in the season, but nice after that.

yes, it's been unseasonably warm the past few days, but this isn't unique to NJ. the midwest and southeast are experiencing it also.

I agree...it's kind of weird that this is surprising people this particular year...when I recall for 38 solid years having a hot spell in the fall. It was called Indian Summer.

How is this shocking to people? Please all of you, look me in the eye (or the keyboard) and tell me you live or lived in New Jersey but never heard of Indian summer...
