So I’m from Green Bay and lived there most my life and still do. I have experienced very cold weather (February 2019) and very hot weather (Summer 2018). Both of which had terrible days. What do you guys dislike more? The very hot days or the very cold days? As well as the extremely cold weather and blizzards or the extreme thunderstorms (we are from Wisconsin the thunderstorms aren’t that bad compared to others but still) but please let me know your opinion. Thank You!

I'll take very cold days over a hot and humid day any day of the year.

20-30 years ago, I would've said that I like colder days more. I was more agile then, and I figured that piling on layers of clothes in cold weather to keep warm was preferable to shedding clothes in hot weather to keep cool. But now that I'm older and less agile, I'm finding that I have increasing difficulty with colder weather. It isn't that I particularly like hot and humid weather-- I don't. At a purely emotional or aesthetic or spiritual level, I prefer cold winter weather. But colder weather for me nowadays more importantly means a collection of physical ailments that will only get worse as I age. OTOH, when the weather in Wisconsin is cool or warm, it's fantastic.

I just deal with whatever the weather throws at us. What else can you do, right? If it's cold, I put on every single item of clothing I have and go out into the woods. (I have face planted into snow banks more this past winter than ever before in my life. I'm starting to almost like it.)

If it's hot and humid, I DON'T wear every single item of clothing I have... in fact, I usually just find a nice trout stream to sit in. Or paint under a patio umbrella and sweat. It's good for you... gets the evil out. Maybe that's just me.

I hate to hear about the physical ailments getting worse in cold weather. That's a lot to deal with here in WI. I feel for you.

I would take a long hot summer over a long cold winter anytime. In fact we did, living in SC for 6 years. Summers here aren't anything like those in the south and same can be said in reverse for winters.
For us its not just the cold and snow we dislike, its that we prefer warm weather outdoor activites vs cold weather ones.

We mainly moved back to be near the grandson/family but we both miss that southern climate.

Just my .02 of course.

I'd take the very hot days. The very cold days bring so many other worries with it.

Guess it really depends on exact temps we're talking about between the 2 though.

I prefer the hot days. I hate when some years we don't hit 90 degrees. Winter doesn't bother me. But prefer the heat.

I think I saw a source that referenced that Stevens Point hasn't seen 90 degrees in at least 7-8 years unless they reached it last summer.
