Lerwick's winter 'averages' are not below freezing? They are similar to many parts of the UK.

The UK.

You don't have to spend a lot or as much on air conditioning, you don't have excessive heat and in my opinion you don't need excessive heat to have a summer. Summer related activities like BBQs and Swimming don't need heat the way winter related activities like Skiing and Snowboarding need cold to have snow. As someone who prefers colder weather saying you need extreme heat to have a summer is like saying you need 10 feet (or 3 meters) of snow to have a winter.

The UK is better I guess but only because I don't like the long summers in the US south. I like heat but not for half the year.
