Oh, and there are days when it's so cold that your mucus membranes in your nose hurt from it then there are days that start out in the thirties for temps, and it begins to rain. The sun goes down and it turns to freezing rain...then the temp drops more and snow begins so that when you wake up there is six inches of new powder covering a half inch of ice that covers everything. Then if you super lucky the temp falls below the level where the road treatments stop working and you get to drive on washboard ice on the roads for the next two weeks.
My point is that there are always extremes.
I'll take a hot dry heat and 115 temps over 90 and humid in the Midwest any day and certainly over the nasty winter snow and ice. I would take the hot desert/valley summer over the Midwest/Chicago/NYC Hot Humid Summer/Crappy winter seasons.
