I gave 80s for my summer high and 50s for my winter high.

these are consistant with my dream climate.

Oh. So are you saying you like 30s and 20s in winter but that does not happen where you live?
Even if that may be case, it still seems you should have included 30s and 20s if you like those temperatures in winter.
Yeah. Climate here is pretty rough on me. Through this week we've been going into high 40's, but it doesn't go any further.

I put 20's to 30's because it seems to be a pleasant cold, where snowfall is a reallity and may allow a warming of termometers after cold wave' landfall.

70's for me. Eternal room temperature weather is my ideal.

It depends on the time of the year I guess.

Winter: high 40 low 28 (Dec 35-25, Jan 40-28, Feb 45-31)
Spring: high 66 low 49 (Mar 56-40, Apr 68-50, May 74-57)
Summer: high 82 low 66 (Jun 79-63, Jul 83-67, Aug 84-68)
Autumn: high 60 low 47 (Sep 72-59, Oct 60-47, Nov 48-35)

Those are my favorite temperature ranges for each month of the year. And apart from the rapid heating in the spring, and rapid cooling in the fall, it's pretty much NYC, plus and minus a couple of degrees.

You could vote for all of those temperature categories if you want to in the poll.

I personally voted for many categories(70s, 80s, 60s, 50s, 90s, 30s, and 20s).

However, I did not vote for 40s, 100s, 10s(teens), single digits, 0 to -10, or below -10.

To susan: I would not say that is odd ball like. Lots of people like variety in temperatures.

Since I'm in Denver, we have the luxory of experienceing crazy weather all year round. I feel sorry for our weather forecasters because they have a hard time keeping up with it. Today they said it was going to be around 90, but it never got over 77. They said we were going to get a good storm the other day, but it moved so quickly across the state that if you blinked you missed it. In early February we'll get 60 degree days and in late May we're lucky if they hit 40. Since it's so unpredicatable I just chose the temps I like the best.

High 60's to mid 70's (low-mild humidity) are perfect for my ideal climate. Anything else it either too hot or too cold = not comfortable.

I voted for 50s before I realized that I could vote for more than one. My second favorite would be 40s. For me:

1. 50s
2. 40s
3. 30s
4. 60s
5. 20s
6. 10s
7. 0-10
8. 80s
9. Below 0
10. 90s
11. 100+

I didn't vote for 100's only because it's so rare,
I don't know what it's like to live with.

Every time it's in the mid-90's F I feel like I'm in heaven.
Doesn't usually matter if I have to sit in a car when it's stinkin' hot too.
I think 90's F is cool enough that it's manageable,
in terms of avoiding heat illness/death by simple hydration.

Nevermind if it's summer or not,
it was 93 F in mid-May recently in Australia,
so that's like mid-November in the northern hemisphere.
I was still thrilled to have a bit of extra heat in the shade,
not wishing for a "fresh cool change" to autumn.

Preference:

1. 90's F
2. 80's F
3. 100's F?
4. 70's F
5. 60's F
