Whereas, in Ohio, it felt like women just didn't care about their looks or staying in shape because there really isn't any competition, and they knew guys would hit on them no matter what, compared to Florida where us guys have much more of a variety, and there is never a shortage of beautiful women
Just sayin...
I disagree! When my wife gets done shoveling the avg. 60+ inches of snow each winter. (Literrally tons). In zero degree wind-chill, over a 4 month period... She is in great shape!

I disagree. Areas with a big outdoor culture of hiking and biking in the mountains produce the best women. Something about the thin air.

Northern Ohio too..pretty much anywhere in Ohio that isn't wealthy suburban. I think it's more sugar fed than corn fed nowadays...well unless corn syrup counts

It's always been that way. Ohio weather is much affected by large weather patterns in Northern Canada, the Gulf of Mexico, and the stuff brought in by the Jet Stream from over the Rockies. Sometimes autumn lasts for months, sometimes it's gone in a blink. It's the same in the Spring. Sometimes, the first miserable hot & humid day is not till July and sometimes it is in early May.

The hottest, most miserable humid day that I can remember since the 1970s is a day in September when I resigned from my job to move to Albuquerque ( Sep, 1985 ). That's saying something since I spent three semesters in Houston - one in the summer during record heat.

They are if you grew up in Dayton.

It baffles me as to why our winters are so starkly Canadian, while our summers are Caribbean. That is to say, our winters in SW Ohio don't differ much from those in lower Michigan (I spent 3 years there), or even from those further north. Our summers don't differ much from those in Atlanta. So we seem to get the worst of both worlds.

Transitional seasons, as others have noted, are short and wet. There's many an April, where in mid-month we'll get snow flurries, while by month's end it's already in the 80s. My preference is mild weather... cool enough to walk briskly in a business-suit without sweating, warm enough to comfortably stand at the bus-stop without an overcoat. Those days are rare around here.

Most of the time, that's true, but I can remember delivering papers in January and February mornings when it was in the high 60s due to an incursion of Caribbean weather. There have also been weeks in June when the daytime high never got above 65.

Like I was saying, the weather in Ohio depends on the weather somewhere else. Mostly, as you said, it's the wrong somewhere else It can last just a couple of days and sometimes for weeks on end.

It really isn't all that unusual. If you shifted the UK across the planet on the same latitude line, eventually, it would plop right in Hudson's Bay. The shoreline around there is considerably different than the shoreline on that island. Compare weather in the coastal cities of San Diego ( great ) and Jacksonville ( terrible ).
