    It is all about how you Acclimate to your region, after a few years new comers to Florida think 60 degrees is cold. While a ocean temp of 60 is for swimming in New England.

    Summers in Florida, yuck.

    Don’t know about Florida, but the only time fit to be out in Portland Oregon is during the hot and humid summertime. 100% humidity and 100 degrees is the same anywhere.
    Speaking of humidity, the local stations liked to lie about it in the mid 1990s when I worked in the area. I’d watch the early live weather forecast just before driving out to the suburbs to work. (Driving out of town was quick, as opposed to the traffic jams coming into town). The weather station was at PDX. It was not uncommon for the entire airport to be socked in with fog when I drove by it, but the news then minutes before would claim humidities much lower. Lowest I could remember was 67%, when fog by definition is 100%.

    I prefer to see my humidity on the ground, not sip it from the air; there have been too many mornings where it feels as if I don’t need my water bottle in central SC

    I’ve grown up in dry heat and I’ve lived/currently living in wet heat. I will take dry heat over the wet heat any day. Especially if one can’t afford to run the A/C during the summer.

    I too prefer winter and we’re having one this year. Other than the freezing rain they are predicting for here today, winter wins hands down for me.

    You can always add more layers when it’s cold. You can’t take any more off once you’re buck naked. And as for air conditioners, they’re only able to reduce the temperature about 30 degrees. So when it’s 115 F, AC only brings the room down to 85. Admittedly, 30 degrees less is a significant improvement, but I find it hard to sleep at night in temperatures above 70 and in Phoenix AZ it can still be 100 at midnight.

    I moved east of the Cascades to get out of the six-seven months of gray sky and rain. He’s got it right. It’s a lot more enjoyable to shovel away the occasional snow than it is to scrub away the moss from between your toes…

    New England weather means you are shoveling snow and risking falling on the ice during the winter and swimming in your own sweat in the humid summer.
    I grew up in New England. I’ll take Texas where I can spend the winter outdoors speed walking without fear of ice and I can strap on ice packs in the early morning to go out for a walk in the summer. Bonus: the sun is up earlier in the summer so it’s easier to go for walks earlier – when it can be cooler as well.

    Well said! I wouldn’t live anywhere else.

    We have 100º with high humidity in Pennsylvania, too. I remember taking a friend from Oklahoma to see Independence Hall one June day when it was in the low 80s, but the humidity was in the 90% range. It felt like 100º out!
    I also visited Vallejo, California in July/August 2005. There was a day that was 91º, but due to the lack of humidity, it felt like a low-humidity 83º day in Philly!

    I agree with DOSQueen.

    Hey Frazz! Don’t you mean 100% humidity? Not 100% AND humid?
