I agree with this now. Changing my thoughts and wording from previous. There are some who actually do like it and are active in it. (not talking about excessive heat like 100sF). Some on the forum here either keep their house hot and built a tolerance for it outside or they bike ride in it like nei and some hike in it (which I will NEVER understand hiking in it for the life of me).

What I hate, instead, are those people who long for hot weather during cooler months (I'm not talking about January, but a rainy day in April or May) and when it arrives they cry "oh it's soooo hot, when is it going to finish?". I'd probably kill them if I had the opportunity
Sounds like most Brits they whinge because they don't see the sun for weeks and it's dreary, then they get a week of sunny skies and high temps above 20C and they start to complain that it's too hot

You won't find many people in the UK saying 20C is hot!

I know people who would complain that it's too hot at any temperature when the sun is shining, but they're fair-skinned and burn very easily. One of them stays away from the sun unless it's early morning or evening, because they will just burn very easily, and break out in an itchy rash, and they have to take medication to try and combat it.

We build a fire when it reaches a frigid 50

Much too warm at night. I would hate it a lot. The highs are alright though.

I like summer but not the muggy heat. Summer brings balmy nights walking the dogs after work. My goldfish get out of the tank and into a big pond. You can see them smile as they swim around, except when the Huron came and ate them I love sitting on the front porch swing on the summer solstice with a glass of ice cold champagne watching the shorties run around with sparklers. My garden is beautiful this year and I love cooking with fresh ingredients. When it's in the 90's we head for the dunes on Lake Michigan and enjoy swimming in the cold water. When the lightening bugs are out in full force I take the dogs down to the park and the field and trees are electrified with millions of little flashing lights. It's magic. The shorties are around more and I love our pizza and movie nights late into the night because they don't have to get up in the morning for school. The bike rides are nice in the morning when it's still cool outside. Summer is so much more then muggy unpleasant temperatures. Late summer is also when the Halloween season starts here.
