    I live in North Central Texas, so fortunately, it's warm most of the year.

    However, I'm terribly cold-natured and if it drops below 70 degrees F I am unhappy.

    I'd rather deal with 90F than 60F, all day, every day.

    I would prefer to never experience a temperature below 75F.

    I love Florida summers and there's plenty of days in the winter that I wished I lived somewhere warmer. This last week was a good example.

    Once my toes get cold they won't warm up 'til April. Yes, I'm a wuss for cold but I'd bet I can work outside on one of our summer days a lot longer than almost all northerners.

    Heh, it's often 60F inside my house.

    I got used to it in my 12 years in Canada.
    Like anything else, you can adapt, adjust and cope.
    It’s hotter’n Hades here most of the time.
    I actually kinda miss the Canadian cold, sometimes.
    It doesn’t get as cold there as it used to.
    Below 30 usually kills Spruce Beetles, and they ain’t getting killed anymore.
    I will say the difference between -20 and -30 is very noticeable.
    They used to close the schools in Prince George, BC when it got to -30.
    I do not recall the schools being closed during my 10 years there.
    Anyways, I don’t know how my 61 year old self would cope now.

    Just got back from an hour and a half bike ride. Beautiful sunshine . Hauled ass. Didn’t want to come back but the sun was dippin’.

    The temp ?

    37°

    My lowest temp ride so far this year was just a couple days ago at 29° (My highest this summer was 99° . You can call me adaptable if you want ...:lol: )

    Of course - wind changes everything but I hate the Schwinn Airdyne so much I spit in the dirt just saying the words.

    Your mileage or temp may vary...

    The cold wind on my face in the morning makes me feel alive. Conversely, hot humid weather slows me down and saps what little energy I got.

    I hate scraping windows, shoveling snow, and I really hate when it's 20 below.

    I remember talking about bad weather with an old woman who just came in the gallery from peltering rain. Everybody there was complaining about the horizontal rain. She responded by saying that there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.

    I'm seeing there are warmer weather folks and cooler weather folks. Just hope you chose the right place to live!

    ^^^Well - the choosing is over and done with. Fortunately I'm in the wrong place with the right people so it's fine.

    The bay area or San Diego is the right place for me but that ship has sailed - I didn't bust my ass enough to get there.

    So - make the most of what is here/the weather that's available.

    It's all perspective. Just like the bellyachers at 58 degrees ! ;):lol:

    There is a real reason I live in the Caribbean and not the 48 or Alaska

    Come to Hawaii. Cold here is when it drops below 60. It's pretty much 75-85 all year long, and all night long too, unless you live on a windy hill. Then it MIGHT get a little cooler.

    I live at the very southern tip of Lake Michigan.
    When we get a North by North west wind in the winter we measure snow in feet and not inches.
    Lake effect can leave drifts higher than the houses.

    I lived in AZ as a kid and attended school in Nashville TN, I know better !
    However all my peeps are here so...

    I really hate winter !

    Almost moved there 20 years ago. The climate is about perfect for me.

    When it gets into the low 70s we’re wearing jeans, long sleeves, & possibly a cover up. The lowest I’ve felt here was 66-67. It was miserably cold & uncomfortable. We fired up the oven & had a fan to to drive the warm air into the main room. I freaking hate cold weather and have for decades

    My son lived on St Croix for around a year doing youth work with a church there.
    All I got was a few pictures of what looks like an amazing place.

    We had 40+ mile an hour winds and sleet Sunday afternoon. That changed to snow at sundown, complete with thunder and lightning. We woke Monday to 11 inches of snow, and drifts up to 4 feet.

    Other than that it has been a rough week.
