Yes, but what's that supposed to mean?

I'd probably like April as a summer month, but it's hardly even a spring month.

We have spring-like weather the first half, the second half is supposed to be early spring, if you go by what's happening in nature.

Usually not even the earliest blooms open until mid April.
Except during a freak warm spring, no leaves will be on the trees either.

Okay good.
I just mentioned that because you mention Houston would be one of the last places you'd ever live, based on a list you have.
I wish Houston or Miami could make my list, but they wouldn't because I can't live there.

I suppose I could live in a hot country where they don't care if I'm there, say Thailand, Philipeans, (sp?) Kenya etc., but I have no clue what it would be like to live there, plus any of them could be politically (or economically) scary.

ColdCanadian out.

I can see that being true for quite a lot of people.

Me I've spent most of my life almost shivering, either coolish, cool, very cool or quite cold under all the layers I wear, and inside where it's only heated to 72 F. That's part of the reason as a teenager that I started really appreciating weather in the mid 90's F or hotter; no matter how challenging the heat is, it's always way-easier on me than a strong breeze at 15 F or colder.

I'd rather be in a climate I'm almost sweating most of the time both because of my experience here, but also my nerve disorder which is bad when it's cold but it stays away in warmth and heat.

The southeastern U.S. for myself would not represent the exteme opposite.
I find there summers, as well as winters and springs easy for me.
Now an opposite to Toronto would be a place like Bagdad, Iraq where summer is 115+ F, 7-8 months are 105+ F and winter is 70+ F.

I think I'd prefer the climate in Bagdad to Toronto.
And I think even while fading in-and-out of conciousness or "alertness" from heat exhaustion,
I'd still be happy that my skin wasn't stinging badly like it would from winter cold.

We are with you ColdCanadian. I can take the heat much more than the cold and dark, don't leave out the gray part of the northern winter. I won't stay here next winter I will go south with my dogs and stay with my daughter. Heck all my northern neighbors leave and go south anyway. and by golly you can golf all winter down there.
