I hate both the extreme hot or cold weathers, but personally I think cold
is the lesser of the two evils.
Yes, the streets and garbage smell the same when it is cold compared to warm/hot and it still can be dirty either way.

Dont you remember after the blizzards in winter when the snow melted how dirty it was and with the garbage bags piled up high in so many places? Also, dont you remember the dirty slush when the snow melted?

Yes, it still smells the same when people are packed like sardines inside the subways and other places during the summer and winter.

I like warm/hot weather. It is annoying when people complain too much about warm/hot weather and try to ruin it for others.

I still like cold weather sometimes but most of the time I like warm/hot weather more.

Ok, I guess the streets and garbage smell the same during the
summer and winter. Maybe is my own nose that is more smelly
during the summer then. I'll make appointment with my doctor
for checkup ASAP.

I need an appointment for that, too.

I cannot grasp how one can actually enjoy the cold, I've never understood that. Snow is ehh, it might as well snow if it HAS to be cold. The last day of the recent heat wave was disgusting because of the air quality, that had to be the worst poor air quality day I've ever experienced, it felt like I was standing in front of a cigarette and a blow drier. I like the heat though, plus it's far more comfortable than being cold, numb, and shivering while staring at a dead landscape.

Garbage always smells to me, whether it's summer or winter, never noticed a difference.

As the old expression goes, it's not the heat; it's the humidity. 95 degrees of dry heat is no problem. Unfortunately, New York happens to be a coastal city, so there's always lots of water around to make things uncomfortable.

I agree with you 100%. The cold is just miserable. I get so depressed in the winter.

I don't find cold in the winter nearly as depressing as this annual Daylight Savings Time nonsense. When the sun sets and it isn't even 5:00 in the afternoon--that's depressing!

VERY TRUE! There's nothing worse than leaving work at 5 and it's pitch black. UGH. I love the sunshine. I really think I suffer from SAD.

I think I'm one of the few out there who likes snow, and hot chocolate and Christmas songs. Cuddling up on the couch in the dark with my DVD's...
I hate the heat. When it's so hot you're miserable and there's nothing you can do about it. In the winter at least you can add clothes for warmth.

Yeah, I agree. I usually get a little depressed at the beginning of Winter but it tends to go away. There's something really nice sometimes about going outside and having the cool air hit your face. Both summer and winter have good and bad things about them. Of course I hate the extremes of both. But I wouldn't really want no seasons at all... I think there is something special about every season. Makes life more, uh, interesting I guess
