    I am absoutly sick of this heat. Everyday is like 85-95 hot, sunny, and humid. And I have a job where I have to work outside. T

    I don't understand why people like the summer so much. What is so great about being uncomfortable all day at work, not being able to sleep at night because it's too hot, then going into work with little sleep just to be sticky and uncomfortable all day?

    Why do people badmouth fall and winter? That's perfect weather. It gets dark out early, nice grey skys, little or no annoying sunshine to deal with. If you get cold then you can just put on a better coat and you are fine.

    Could be leftovers from childhood and "yay no school"

    How about swimming... thats fun... then again i am from place where summer is all year around:) i win...
  4. Enjoy the variety, man. There are plenty of places where the weather barely changes, and many of them *gasp* are hot all year 'round! Oh, the humanity!

    Or you could aspire to move north.
  5. In most places on the earth, the temperature drops to a much less acceptable temperature in the winter than the temperature high it rises to in the summer. Sure it's hot in the summer, but it's not so hot as to cause the problems you get from cold in the winter.

    This question would be better framed "why exactly do people live on the east coast?" *ziiiiing*

    The last four months of the year are definitely the best.
  9. After a while, you get used to it being hot all the time. Humans are pretty adaptable creatures. I prefer summer because I can get out and ride my bike. While I can do this in the spring and fall, I enjoy it more when its warm out.

    Summer is my least favorite season.

    If you're cold, you can always put on more layers.

    If you're hot, you can only take off so much before The Man intervenes.

    95 tops? quit crying.

    107 all last week.
  13. It was around 96 degrees today here. You might not think that's bad from the numbers, but if you've ever been in the Washington area, you'll discover that we invented humidity. Through my internship, I've met many people who flew into the city from all different parts of the country to do this, including some hot places such as California, Arizona, Texas etc. They think that it's hell here in the summer.

    While not to belittle your humidity, here in cali the humidity has been far greater than usual, even for summer time. All last week was not only in the 100s, but the humidity was heavy too(maybe not as heavy as the east coast or south, but still miserably heavy)

    That said, I love being baked in the sun, I would much prefer being scorching hot in the sun than freezing cold in the snow. But that's just me.

    Summer is great without the humidity... some places where the humidity is low you can actually go out and enjoy the heat.
    Pool , nice girls in a bikini, get some tan, play outdoor games without being afraid to be caught by a massive rain.

    I hear you Bad Brains, I'm kind of a "cold weather guy" myself.

    I was born out here in Hollywood (LA), but spent a lot of my childhood in Switzerland.

    I enjoy skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing, all that stuff.

    When it gets hot, I tend to go to the beach (whenever possible), and cool off.

    My g/f and I, have the air conditioner on almost all the time. Definitely in the car too, the worst thing in the world is having to deal with car-sweat.

    Let's see, I have a few good friends from places like N'awlyns, who swear by the humidity and the cleanliness of pores and so on.

    I must admit, I don't "get" that perspective. I don't like jumping out of the shower, only to be sweating like a pig ten minutes later.

    But, to each his (or her) own I suppose.....

    Interestingly enough, most of the women I know prefer the hot weather.

    I'm not sure why that is exactly, but to me a "hibernation period" during the winter seems like a very pleasant (and fulfilling) thing. :D
