Assuming I was, then I would prefer to be stranded in 90 F.
Come to think of it though, 80 or 90 F isn't a fair comparison to -30 or -40 F. The choice should be more like 120 F +.

I was thinking "why not both!" but then I saw you included "humid" in with the hot option. I can't stand humid heat, give me a good ole dry heat any day. I voted for cold and snowy on this one! (Plus I LOVE snow too!)

You're right. I was actually going to compare the two extremes in South Ontario (I don't think it ever got above 100 degrees here, at least, not recently), but then again, it didn't go down to -30 that often either.

A better comparison then would be about getting stuck outside in 80s or 90s (believe me, everybody here complains when it gets that hot in the summer) vs. -10s or -20s (Fahrenheit) with snow, though in which case, I would still go with the former

I'd rather have a hot humid summer. I can handle the heat more than the cold.

Yes this is a better comparison. Although I prefer cold weather, I would rather be stuck in 80s or 90s than in the -10s and -20s. That's not to say I would enjoy it since I don't tolerate heat very well, but I think it would be easier to "survive" in those conditions.

29 C or -29 C? It's not a hard choice to make! 29 C is very pleasant in the shade if there's a breeze and it's not too humid. -29 C, on the other hand, would put you in serious danger of hypothermia, to say nothing of being extremely uncomfortable.
