I love summer. Though we have the shade trees, and always need to choose the shade for most of the time, but grew up on an orchard. Then we had no
air conditioning or fans. But I love the summer days. Love not having to set my alarm at 5 30 to get kids to school. Love the energy, the birds
singing nonstop day and night, staying out under the stars at night. If it were up to me, it would go from May to Mid late September, over and over,
that would be wonderful. Of course prefer the semi desert and lots of lakes to coastal heat. I love spending time outside.

It's one of those things that depends on where you're from. I've lived on the gulf coast my entire life and am used to 90+ degree days possible 6
months out of the year, and quite honestly am relieved the few "winter" months we get. So, I would have to agree with you for the most part. My goal
is to live in the mountains one day. I'll let you know after 10 or 20 years of that how I feel about winter
Live in the Canadian prairies for a few years, you'll grow to hate winter too.
The 3 months of "summer" that we get here is a well-deserved reprieve from the -35 celsius temps we get for the other 9 months.
Now if you don't mind, I'm going to grab an ice cold bubbly out of the fridge and go sit on my back deck to try to absorb some vitamin D before I have
to scamper back into my winter cave shelter with the thermal undies and triple-layer insulated arctic-rated winter coat.
I am with you op! I HATE it!! but yeah- I'm in Texas too. I was born here you'd think I could cope better but I really belong up North
somewhere. One day (a few winters ago) it was 19 degrees here and a wicked wind was blowing and I was perfectly comfy in my t-shirt and jeans.(lol)
But yeah..with the high humidity and super heat we have here it's frikkin' miserable. There's no way you can describe it to someone who hasn't lived
it. I have a friend in Iraq and he says he can cope better there-ha! Also have friends who moved to Missouri and came down for a visit when it was
only in the mid nineties and they were nearly fainting- said they had forgotten how bad it feels. .
my poor garden went from monsoon rains for weeks straight to hot temps, it's really struggling. I'm going to cover it tomorrow so it will be shaded
for the worst part of the day. Fingers crossed
Last year we went to the lake to 'cool down' and the freakin lake water was so warm (by the beach) it felt like I was taking a hot bath-ugh!
I only like part of summer, but once it gets too hot and humid...Hate it! Love Spring and Fall, part of Winter until the months drag on and on and I
tire of the grey skies and too much snow and everything is dreary and lifeless.
Today was awesome, warm but not too warm and a beautiful breeze.
I love summer...I so hate wearing shoes and pants and even long sleeve shirts and even coats..I am always wearing shorts even in the winter time but
not out side..I just hate my body being closed off I guess...So its summer for me...
