I don't think I have ever heard such a stupid thing in my life!

The conditions bring the activities and without these conditions I cannot do what I like to in the summer.

Seeing your location explains it all, try living where I live with snow on ground 6 months each year. If I lived in Sydney I would also like summer the least.

The silly thing is there is only a 0.1C difference in the average high of the hottest month in Winnipeg vs. Sydney. I can't see how anyone could hate a Sydney summer. Really. It's not that bad

Id much rather stand around in hot and sticky instead of freezing cold with icey winds and/or snow. Because with freezing cold there is NOTHING fun to do. Because with hot and sticky I can jump in my pool.

ahhhhh summer.......

Those who have poor circulation in their extremities are far more comfortable in the summer, humidity and extreme heat aside. Longer hours of sunlight can positively affect mood, and the additional color in the landscape also uplifts most people's spirits. Being more easily able to travel and see far-flung friends, family and various attractions is a plus for most people, along with being able to enjoy more outdoor activities.

And don't forget the farmers' markets, and all that delicious fresh, locally-grown produce and other local foods! Yum! My consumption of canned goods goes down proportionally in the summer, when fresh fruits and vegetables are available.

lol, right now, it's 97 degrees, I have the whole house open (yes, I have central ac but why us it) and the fans on. I hate cold weather. I hate cool breezes, they make me chilly. I love the warmth, it wraps around you and feels like a blanket out of the dryer (not quite dry).

I've lived in Fl my whole life and have never, ever been uncomfortable in the heat, except back in the mid 70's when the gas crunch was on and we had to sit in the car in the sun for hours waiting for gas, lol (no ac in cars back then)

Don't they get a lot of rain and cloudy days in summer though? That doesn't appeal too much to me as much as their spring where it's dry and sunny

How can anyone seriously like hot, sticky and dirty air? Compared with fresh, cool and clean air?

Summer is horrible.

It's not even summer here in Sydney, Australia but the increasing warm temps and daylight is already makin me cringe.
