I'll take that over the 271 days of 80+ degrees and the 147 days of 90+ we had last year. Oh, and some of the highest humidity levels in the country to go along with it.

I was "stuck" outside in the 80s and 90s most days this summer. But I won't say it was stuck. Though some 90 degree days I would be out more in the evening or morning. I would be stuck inside if it was in the single digits fahrenheit let alone -10 and -20. Though most years I don't think -10 and below happens where I live.

And I would take that instead.
I can sleep at 87 F, under covers, in stagnant indoor air above 50% humidity.
Never warm enough, long enough here... even if you only look at our summer weather.

Where is that? South Texas? South Florida?

Damn! Are you serious!! And I though I was warm blooded!! You have me beat!!

You would have loved the Bahamas last Aug! Temps around 32 with dewpoins in the mid 20's! It was one of the few times ever in my life where I was desperate to cool off and anyone that know me knows how much of a challenge it is for me to be comfortably warm, let alone sweating!

The main thing for me is getting to a mental state where you don't care that you're slighlty-sweaty.
I'm used to sweating more at work in summer, so it felt better than being at work.
If I had to live with that, I would still get good sleep every night,
but would want to wash my bedsheets at least weekly from all the sweat.

Are you American? It's unusual for Americans to use Celcius.
(I know both )

It is so much that you can do outside on hot days and nights opposed to cold days and nights. Yes I live around Chicago and love it but the summers are what I live for thinking around February!

Yes I am American. I'm fluent in both F and C so I just used C since you are Canadian.

How patronizing of you.
(though I do the same, try to accomodate what I think might be most familiar)

I actually learned F at home, but learned C in school.
Canada is wishy-washy with our metric usage. Not many "metric only" fans here.

Which state?
You can add your location in the top-right if you want. I see you're sort of a new member here.
