Last summer we had 33 in Philly, which was perfect for me.

50 or more days is really intense, especially if there is a lot of humidity.

Less than 20 is pretty pathetic in my opinion, and i'm not sure i would even qualify it as a true summer.

Hmm between 20 and 30 wouldn't be bad, I guess. Anyway I never had the pleasure to experience such a summer, as the only one to get past 20 here was 1947.

0. I walk everywhere, prefer not to have A/C, and I don't swim, so I don't see any use of having summer temperatures above 75F. 65-75 is perfect for my lifestyle and anything warmer wouldn't have any benefit for me.

None, I dislike anything above 85 F. There are very few years here where there are 0 days of 90 F, but as long as there's 5 or less 90 F days I probably wouldn't complain too much, unless they were in the upper 90s or 100s of course!

At least 100 days a year of 90+ F, especially if most of that is low 90's F.

I also prefer to see an additional 150 or so days a year in the 80's F,
leaving only 30-100 days a year below 80 F... which are then still in the 70's F.

0-2 days would suit me fine.

My idea of a perfect summer is max average high of 75, with no more than 55-60% sun and at least 5 inches of rain for each of the summer months.

We probably haven't reached 90F here since 2006, and that's okay by me.

I'd prefer 0 days above 90F.

We get 0, my ideal number would be about 90. A proper 3 month summer.

None. For me, temperature should never be above 25 C (77 F). I don't dislike swimming, but

1. If there's no wind and preferably if it's dry, I can swim in 22 to 25 C no problem.
2. I can do it indoors anyway.

Anyway, I wouldn't mind too much if I lived in a place with an annual avg of 1 or 2 days above 90 F, but that is not the case unfortunately.
