I would love a 71 degree morning. It was 53 when I woke up. Even now it's almost noon and only 60.

And that sounds like heaven to me. I think a bunch of us need to switch locations.

I think 80+% of the CD members who regularly post in the "weather forum" need to switch locations.

I have promised myself that I will work on having a better attitude about really cold winters...and the accompanying poor driving conditions...it has almost made me want to move to a climate with very mild winters...but...I will work on my attitude first, because summers here are divine

55-75 F is ideal.

In order of decreasing pleasantness:
45 F = 80 F
35 F = 85 F
25 F = 90 F
10 F = 95 F
-5 F = 100 F
-20 F = 105 F
-35 F = 110 F
-50 F = 115 F
-100 F = 130 F

No way!!!!

100f equales the discomfort of -40f!!!

50f is awesome, as opposed to 100f, that is completely awful!!! (97f right now here)

All depends on how I'm dressed......

If I'm wearing nothing but shorts and a t-shirt and no socks, 100 F is equivalent to 55 F in the shade....I get the chills..
If I'm wearing pants and a sweater over a turtleneck 100 F is equivalent to 40 F
If I'm wearing pants, a sweater over my t-shirt, and windbreaker on top of that, 100 F is equivalent to 30F.

If I'm wearing pants, a sweater over my t-shirt, and a proper jacket on top of the sweater and gloves, 30 F is equivalent to 70 F.
If I'm wearing pants with leggings underneath, a sweater over a turtleneck, a windbreaker, and a proper jacket on top and gloves, 20 F is equivalent to 75 F.

(60 F is my ideal temp for sweater weather and 75 F is ideal for t-shirts, 80 F for shorts).
I know there are people who can comfortably wear shorts and a tee at 40 F and get by in a light sweater at 20 F though.



Unfortunately, I have no experience with spending time outside in temps lower than 20 F.....
Also my only experience with 100 F was with dry heat..have NOT experienced real humidity w/ hot temps either...

Of course, too, are we talking about being "out in the weather" as opposed to being inside with heat/air conditioning?

But even though, we can supposedly tolerate heat better, I would mention this~ I have heard that the death rates in the south were formerly higher than those in the north. With the advent of air-conditioning, the death rates of north and south equalized and they think this is due to air-conditioning.
A lot of the death rate was due to malaria, yellow fever, and other conditions in the south early on. Once they started spraying for mosquitoes, that is the one thing that reduced the death rate.

I think if you compare the civilizations in early Egypt to ones in northern Europe a few centuries later, there were actually higher death rates in northern Europe than in Egypt.

For me, 65-80 is perfect.

60=85 very comfortable
55=90 comfortable
50=95 slightly uncomfortable
45=100 uncomfortable
40=105 aggrevating
35=107 very aggrevating
30=110 very uncomfortable
25=112 slightly painful
20=115 painful
15=117 very painful
10=120 very painful
0=125 dangerous
-5=130 very dangerous
-10 and below=136 deathly if not taking precautions

136 is the highest temp recorded on earth so naturally I can't put anything higher than that, nobody in the world has experienced above that temp outside.

To myself, 40°C is a bit like 5°C. 50°C like -5°C. 25°C is an ideal perfect temperature.
