It's been a long time since I was in RTC Great Lakes, but I remember that lakefront humidity was brutal. It definitely wasn't all that hot in comparison to South Texas but it felt like you were breathing water.

That said, when the fronts move through and after a rain the humidity can be a little rough, still not like I remember in Chicago or even to the east in Houston.

(I tell everyone, "You don't have to shovel heat!"). I've lived a lot of places, and so far, all things considered, SA is my favorite city!!

I will say that I am very grateful we bought a house with a pool!!! I am loving it more than I would have thought was possible!
Exactly my thoughts! I am sooo tired of snow and having only 4 months of real warm weather a year! we will probably be looking for an apartment community with a pool and Air conditioning!

Pretty sure any place you find here will have air conditioning. It would be crazy not to.

I lived in both MI and IN before coming to SA, and I greatly prefer the summers here. Yes, temperature-wise it is hotter here, but it was always so humid in the Great Lakes region that I always felt like I was in a sauna during the summer. I don't remember temperatures getting much above 95 degrees at the worst in Michigan, but I found it hard to breathe there because of the humidity.

It can be humid here, especially compared to a place like AZ, but it is usually bearable. And I will take 3 months of high temps and humidity in return for snow-free winters and year-round sunshine. Always seemed like 8 months of gray skies in Michigan (not sure if that holds true in Chicago but I do remember absolutely freezing when I had to visit Chicagoland for work in the winter a couple of years ago...wonderful city but horrid weather IMO).

It's more than 3 months of high temps here...admit that at least. I would venture to say late May into even early October it's pretty damn hot. That's 4 1/2 months. Depending on the year, it could start and end earlier or later.

In a nutshell: San Antonio is HOT- four months of oppressive heat, four months of heat, and four months of "enjoy it while it lasts" weather. I saw Novembers that were hot and felt nothing like Thanksgiving. Not every year, but it never did seem like the holidays to me. There were also a couple of years we lived there and April was miserable.

It's all subjective. But I'll never understand why all some people can do is complain. Why don't you move???

Admit what you described is subjective and not a fact. I don't find any point in October or May to be "pretty damn" but there are people who find 82 degree days as "hot" or "pretty damn hot" or whatever. Some find.it comfortable or great or whatever.
