One day of 80 degrees will scew the average way down. It is HOT and HUMID 9 months of the year.This year we broke records for the most days of 90 degrees and above for OCTOBER, not counting the HUMIDTY with heat indrexes over 100 degrees. The PE coach took the temp on the basketball court in October this past year and it was 120 degrees.

But, but, but it's not COLD. Gimme a break. Go from one extreme to another.
There were 14 days over 90 in Naples in October and this broke records for most days over 90 yet you question her saying it being over 90 in October is not the norm?

Hate to break it to you but if something is breaking records then that thing that is breaking records is what is not the norm.

Tan - you aren't a good source as you hate heat which is apparent that coupled with the fact that you don't dress properly for your weather is not good. I can't logically take advice from you on hot and cold because the way hot and cold affect us is completely different. You think anything over 75 is hot and I think anything under 65 is chilly. The difference between us is that I at least can admit that 90+ is hot - you won't admit 40 is comfortable. You state that under your many layers it is comfortable - it is pretty cold and even those who don't want to move to Florida are likely to admit that.

For you I hopoe you get back to LI. Where you will be able to put layer upon layer on so that you may be comfortable. Good luck!
I also lived in NORTH Florida. Not the same. If you really want to, check out the local news reports. That will tell you that we set records in October for the most 90+ days. I am not exaggerating that. It is on record.

Again, SOUTH Florid is not NORTH Florida.

The first Halloween I was here in 2007 it as 88 degrees that day. Whoopee!!!!! TWO DEGREES below 90.

PS. You DON'T live in SW Florida. So don't tell me what the temp or the AVERAGE temperature is.

It does get unbearably hot here and in SW Florida also. I just hate the cold weather and long nights more.

I could tell you the temperature in Kathmandu if I wanted to. I have this strange thing called a computer with internet that gives me all kinds of information.

I have also lived in many different parts of Florida and am well aware of the differing weather.

There were also 2 days that the highs only got in the 70's, what is your point?

I have gathered much information since starting this thread, learning that weather is a lot of preference. Though I have 3 young children under the age of 6 and can't help that thinking hot is better than cold. We spend most of the winter months inside, and after bundling them all up we're out for 30 minute max. I can't help but think that Hot you can still be outside jumping in and out of a pool [s better than being stuck inside looking out at the gray sky wishing and waiting for summer. Can anyone with children pipe in and tell me their NY winter vs. FL summers experience?

but I spend most of my childhood in NY inside an ice rink; winters and summers. My younger daughter played ice hockey (still does as an adult) and we spent year round in ice rinks with her also.

Would it matter where we lived, other than more OPPORTUNITY up North?

this I have no doubt about - I'm sure it will take me time to adjust to the extend amount of time the heat sticks around. But you hit it on the nose you would rather deal with the heat than with the cold gloom of northern weather as would I.

My children were outside all the time at that age and even into the teens they spend a lot of time outside all year. Both played sports so they were out there for that.

I know one thing, it doesn't take near as long to get 3 kids ready to go out in warm weather.

More opportunity for cold weather and ice, yes.
