Most people voted for 75 degrees outdoor temp. Well I got news for you. Itll be over 80 indoors if its 75 outdoors. I woke up early this morning and it was 80 in my room even though im sure it was like 70 outside. This is why I voted for 50 degrees because then it will be 70 inside which is what I want

I went to Walmart yesterday and I found 75 degrees outside to be a little warm and humid for me to be honest. Too warm to do any sports or exert myself. 50 degrees is great then I wont sweat when exercising I cant wait to move north.

Those living north who like it warm outside, why dont you relocate south then?

I agree, 75 is too hot for me too. I actually voted for 40 but 50 if probably better, and I do plan to move where it is cooler.

70ish is ideal, but I'm comfortable from 40s up to 70s. I'll take the cold over the hot if there's humidity.

Out west, I can go up to the upper 80s and still be comfortable b/c you don't have to drink the air.

Yes the sun will make it hotter indoors, but why would you want to be indoors?
Me I LOVE an excuse to get outside so if it's nice outside and kinda hot inside, who cares?

It must have got to 60 F today because I was able to take off my coat and gloves. That sunshine felt good. But after the sun set it started to chill. After having my finger tips start to sting I left my friends house and turned on the car heat. It felt good to get out of the cold. As the heat car on my bare arms started to burn, going from the cold outdoors to the warm car. I found out my pleasant afternoon cooled down to dern chilly 54 F. I honestly thought it was in the 40's.

Why don't we relocate? We can't; that's what makes us northerners and/or Canadians.

*Maybe we need to get you southerners outside in that 80 F plus weather, so we can feel warm living vicariously through y'all. *

I say the warmer, the better, as long as the heat is dry. I wish we had more dry heat like today around here...it was 80 degrees and it was beautiful. The humidity will be here to stay in just a short time

I picked 80. I like anything from 65 to about 90ish. Once you start getting in the 90s its hot. I'll wear shorts and a t-shirt in anything over 65 and I love it.

Variety is the spice of life.
A crisp fall evening or a beautiful sunny spring morning ?
How do you choose ?
I love it all with the exception of a desert blast furnace or
southeast sauna.
All those folk skiing can't be wrong.
