I enjoy May, the days are a bit cooler it's not relentlessly sunny and the increased rainfall also makes for a nice change, and turns the landscape green Close to my favourite weather month.

May in Texas can be a difficult month. It's just starting to get hot and we get winds from the south which bring both moisture and agricultural smoke from Mexico. So you get a combination of hot, humid, windy and smoky. I'll take a clear 100 degree day in August or a chilly rainy January day over May - it's my least favorite month of the year!

May is just the same as June, July, August and September - it all runs together as one, lonnnnngggg god-forsaken summer.
Big difference between the North and the South on that one. Some years, the trees aren't completely out in early May.

I actually like May better than summer months, though the early parts are often a bit too cool. But at least here, May generally falls under the no A/C no heat month for just about everyone.

Agreed, except about the beginning being "too" cool.

I did have to use the A/C the last week of May last year during that stretch of warm and humid weather, but generally I can "tough it out" until June.

This May is awesome in that plants/trees are a month ahead of normal in NE Wisconsin! I've never seen trees leaf out this early, and my perennial beds look like very late May. Now all I can hope for is no severe hail storm to brutalize the leaves of my plants!

No, I am actually feeling pretty depressed honestly. It's getting a little too sunny and a little too not-rainy. Plus there the whole utterly alone thing too.

Yeah, May sucks.

May is the month I least like. No skiing yet, even though the weather is starting to feel winterish.

Still plenty of nice days though. There are normally a couple of warm Northerly systems with good rainfall, one last chance for the bananas to make good growth before winter sets in.
