St. Louis in the summer can be downright miserable (weather-wise).

Give me the Summer heat of Texas, Arkansas, Florida and Iowa anyday over the -10 degree late-January nights here in Ohio. The human body is much better adapted to deal with heat than it is cold.

It can get hot, but compared to Texas, Arizona, or louisiana? No way...there are FAR worse summers than St. Louis, even though it can get hot and humid here. Go to Arkansas or someplace further south and St. Louis seems like a freezer So far this summer actually hasn't been that bad. It was 77 degrees out today. At night-time St. Louis is usually much cooler and tolerable than in the daytime.

Dayton reaches -10 degrees on late January nightsMaybe the windchill does but the temperature? I haven't even seen Minneapolis or Chicago get that cold...-10 degrees is a stretch for Chicago or Cleveland any day of the year at any time. and I monitor weather using wunderground.com everyday. THe windchill probably makes it feel like it's -10 degrees is more my guess. in St. Louis our windchills can get well below freezing but the I've seen the temperature gets is in the single digits. Iowa and St. Louis make up for their humidity and hotness in the summer with cold winters. Iowa makes St. Louis' and Dayton's winters look mild, and the latter two have pretty similar ones (St. Louis and Dayton). Dayton and St. Louis probably experience the same freezing windchills and January in these two places is FREEZING.

not really. i'm originally from tampa and currently live closer to providence. back home, you could only take off so many layers of clothes until you had nothing left to take off, and you'd STILL be hot and uncomfortable. when it's cold, at least you can keep adding layers and layers. i think the human body can adapt to cold better than heat. but i've lived through both, so this is from real personal experience, not just some other person from another northern state wanting to head south just for the "warm weather". it's not as great as it sounds, really!
