I went to UM/lived in Miami for 8 years. It is much hotter here in the summer (degrees). People here complain about the humidity...compared to Miami, it is rarely noticeable to me. Very few bad hair days here. The only thing I miss (so much) is the ocean. We built a pool last summer and that makes the hot summers way more bearable.
Be aware, the winter here gets pretty cold. Nothing like up north, but way colder than Miami.
Hope you enjoy it here. It is a very friendly, relaxed city.

Last summer was brutally hot. 2008... I don't remember it being that bad but it was still enough to prevent any work outdoors between about 10 and 5.

So...the summers in Texas aren't that different (temperature-wise) from what I am used to here...minus some humidity, which is good!

The summers here are long and hot- I think sometime back on the boards someone used the word "inferno", and that sounded funny but accurate to me. To me, if you are in the shade, it can be tolerable- but without it, its pretty mean. In summer its like being under a heat lamp the minute you step out of the shade. I moved here from Va., which has terrible humidity, and IMO it does not get miserably humid here too often or for too long. When it does, those days are ugly, and they stand out. It does not rain much here- or at least it hasn't the last 3-4 years we have been here. The trade off for the long hot summers to me is lower cost of living, mild winters, and really great people.

Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.....and that's what is happening in this thread.

2009 was....H O T.

Never forget....

When your grandchildren are sitting on your lap...they will ask you about the "Summer of 2009". You will tell them how cattle keeled over like swatted flies. You will talk about how cranking up the A/C was barely enough to keep SALT from melting. You will talk about how you cooked an entire rack of ribs using heat from the sidewalk during July...you will remember that it was so hot that Dick Cheney waterboarded himself.

I'm still cooling off. I just need about 1-2 more months of cold and then I'll be happy with 50ish weather.

Sorry!

I'm with you. I am not a fan of REAL winter, but I am less of a fan of 50-odd days of 100+ temps (and the rest of the summer being 95+). I'm enjoying the heck out of this winter and am praying that spring doesn't show up until around Fiesta, and that summer holds off 'til...you know...summer!

My aerobics instructor keeps talking about how horrible the winter is. I just have to wonder if she's completely forgotten how horrible last summer was!

Such "state" would be called San Diego. 75 degrees and sunny in the winter. 75 degrees and sunny in the summer.

Not lately. Today was the first sunny 75 degrees in quite a while!
