Y'all chose to move here - suck it up and quit whining about the weather.
We didn't all choose to move here.

I did choose to move here - but hindsight is 20/20. Had I know that when my husband told me the weather was "mild" he meant "It's under 60 degrees for 10 months of the year and it's mostly cloudy all year and in the 40s.."

Then I probably would have said Hell No.

I told him I liked to be warm - even he didn't realize I meant I need to be in 80 degrees...our heating bill is HUGE. And I was very very mad (we had many a heated battle) when he would say "Just put on more layers" and I'd rebuttle "I'm in MY HOUSE, I want to be warm in MY HOUSE not bundled up like if I was outside!"

LOL

You sound JUST like me and my wife - only I"M the one freezing all the time.

I can't tell you how many times I've said the EXACT same thing - I mean WORD FOR WORD.

Too funny.

I've always been a believer in the idea that the temp should be such that clothes are ONLY needed for modesty.

If I have to put on ANYTHING simply to keep warm - well, then it's TOO COLD.

And here I sit, freezing again today.

Ken

I can comfortably wear shorts if it's at least 55.

I just wish I could tolerate the clouds so well...

Default Where are you people?

I'm in Greenlake, and it's been wonderful for the past week... perfect, in my opinion. Borderline hot Saturday, and nice and mild every day since... no rain.

What did you expect? 95 degrees and humid?

I wear shorts unless I'm going to a social engagement pretty much from now until October 1st.

I'd suggest that some of you 'colder' folks try getting out and moving around - take a walk or ride a bike or something. It's plenty warm and stunningly beautiful with everything growing like crazy. Heck, my infant daughter doesn't think it's cold... I've been taking her out daily and she loves the weather.

The Southwest/Southeast exists for a reason - for those of you who think 72 degrees is cold, enjoy massive bugs, and dig summer rainstorms.

Go forth and prosper in it if Seattle doesn't work for you!

I have not worn a pair of shorts since I moved here, in Sac it would have to hit the 90s consistantly until I broke out the shorts

I'm pretty sure I don't even own shorts that fit anymore they are that old

Yep, in the 3 years I've been here I've barely worn shorts.
