I like hot weather, although am happy with the summer weather I get now.

I have a friend who loves hot weather---the hotter the better, the more humidity the better. She has various health issues and says cold weather exacerbates them.

As for me, given a choice between a cold, icy, snowy day or a hot humid day, I'll take the latter. That said, I'm no fan of high humidity but it's still, IMO, better than freezing in the winter.

I suspect that such people love the warm temps but hate the humidity.

I hate heat and heat/humidity with a passion, trying to get away from it permanently, but easier said than done in most of the US.

I'm curious what those of you who prefer hot weather actually do outside?

Exactly. With 90% and above humidity (heat idex above 100 degrees), it's pretty much dangerous to be active unless it's in the water.

I've been working in it, doing 10-12 hour days. Then I go to come back to my uninsulated tin shack, where it's more comfortable to sit outside on the shady side, than stay inside.

You could move to Alaska, there is little humidity during the summer up there.

I worked 25 yrs working construction in Florida, I grew to hate the colder weather. As the temps dropped it would screw with all the materials we used. It would add time on the jobs because things react to the colder temps. When the temps got close to the lower 30's all I would want to do is drink coffee or put my hands in my pocket to keep warm. I don't want to be outside when the weather gets cold. Normally the sky's get overcast and things look dreary. When it gets hot the sun is out and as soon as you step outside you can feel the warmth, its so refreshing your body feels so relaxed nothing gets stiff. I love working up a good refreshing sweat working outside on projects or doing yard chores. As i'm walking to the door my dog is following me outside as well. In the evenings it doesn't get dark till after 900pm in the summer. We can sit outside and watch tv or just chill to music under the stars while soaking in our "cool" tub holding an adult beverage. Getting to use my BBQ and smoker year round while dressing in flip flops and t shirts and shorts 365 days of the year is a bonus! May is here and so is the warmth, I could not be happier.
