Lots of people who come up to New York/New Jersey area says it's frigid cold when it's 60s and 70s during day. WTF.. do you guys know what cold is?! Anything below 70° seems "cold" for Floridians.

Actually it makes a lot of sense, and not everyone's bodies react the same.

I too get cold when its 60-70 in the Summer, my body gets used to the constant 80's/90's everyday with jumps to 100 a few days a year. I've heard people say they're freezing if its below 80 which is bull.

Uh, I never heard anyone saying 80 degrees is too hot. I've heard people say they don't like when it gets to 80, but they don't complain like Floridians do, like whining how they need to wear a light jacket. Boohoo.

I never understood when people say they're hot (not too hot) when its 80, its weird considering our average high for July (in NYC at least) is close to 90.

80º is where I keep my A/C year round, with ceiling fans on any room I'm in. 75º is nice outside in the sun. Considering our average body temp is 98.6º, yes 60º is chilly. Also note that people in 60º water can die of hypothermia. Also consider the heat index when it's 80-100º. It could, with humidity,feel like 95-115º, Again, then yes, 60º is a very large gap. Just as your wind chill makes you feel colder than the thermometer reads.
Sooooo, WTF right back at 'cha!

I'm calling for my 40s and 50s to hurry up this fall.
I like everything to be perfect for every season.

I have low tolerance to heat though.

I think what makes the difference depends on the wind chill. 60-70 with no wind is almost perfect weather; throw in wind. I'm throwing on my winter coat and gloves!

Another thing is us being exposed more to the heat makes our bodies more vulnerable in the cold. Lots of our bodies can't handle cold weather; like mine which causes my allergies to act up and usually get sick.
