Swimming and any kind of water sports. I LOVE being in the water!

Snow is overrated in urban environment and should be only in the mountains.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Snow is overrated period, especially here in the Indianapolis area where oftentimes bitter arctic outbreaks usually follow snowfalls.

Because it's better than freezing to death! Seriously, though, I think it also has to do with the sun. Sun is just better than dark/gray. You can be outside and find some shade, or some water to stay comfortable. More difficult being outside in the cold and 'surviving.' Unless you have the proper clothing and/or actually LOVE the cold, it's not as enjoyable as warmth. My 2 cents.

I hate any temp extreme, too hot as much as too cold. I would love to find a place with daytime temps in the low 70's and night time temps in the mid-50's year round.

I don't know why people like hot weather, lol. I suspect some like it because it's what they are accustomed to, and some like it because it's simply more comfortable for them. I'm sure that others like it because they have activities they do such as swimming that are difficult to do when it is cold out

I don't mind WARM weather as long as it is: 1) seasonal--appropriate for the time of year and 2) does not get warmer than 80F/26C for an extended period of time.

I love the heat of SW Florida. The humidity takes some getting used to but itís manageable. You just have to learn to do certain things like lawn work and other heavy work at the right time of the day. There is usually a breeze so that helps some as well.
