I'm a huge of fan of constantly dry and sunny weather. So I would naturally look forward to El Nino events and would completely loathe La Nina periods (what we're currently experiencing). However, the thing is, as a gardener, drought and El Nino is pretty much unfriendly towards my plants. I had a few plants and as well small trees dying during the worst El Nino events. Even though I quite favour these dry parching conditions, as a climate enthusiast. So I am torn.

What about you guys?

I hate extremes, especially those associated with mid-latitude weather patterns — drought, wintry precipitation events, severe thunderstorms (i.e. hail, tornadoes, etc), etc. But even I have to admit that they provide some interesting case presentations and learning w/ regards to meteorology and climatology.

I do find lightning fascinating but they can kill.

i use to love the heat and sun for hiking , but now I hate it after living in southern AZ for a year. I'd rather hike in 40/sunny or 60/overcast over 70+ and open sun .

My favorite climate conditions often tend to lend themselves to my other interests in some way or another. I like long, warm, sunny days for road tripping and photography and it's hard to go storm chasing if the climate isn't conducive to storms. Not a fan of shorter/colder days at all and I often can't enjoy many of my outdoor interests during those times.

For me, hailstorms. Love them, but they'd damage plants and as well as our cars.

How does a subtropical paradise like Australia get hailstorms, anyway?

Hail is actually common in subtropical climates. Hail is the most frequent in Cfa, Cwb and subtropical highland Cfb climates.
