Are you a hot weather person or a cold weather person?

The thread about the rain started me thinking about this.

I am a cold/cool weather person. The heat and humidity make me feel absolutely miserable. I actually feel like I'm suffocating sometimes if I am too warm. I am much more happier in the winter time. Of course, where I live, the winter is very mild. Too mild in my opinion. This past winter we really didn't have a winter. It was in the 60s and 70s for much of the winter months.

I actually used/use the A/C at times during the night in the winter because I need to be cool when I'm sleeping. If I'm to warm, forget sleep; it's tossing and turning and misery. I also use a fan every night when I lay down for sleep.

And I am SO sensitive to the A/C if it stops working properly. I can tell almost immediately. And it's a priority to get it working right. All other things on my list get forgotten till I get the A/C back in working order.

To me, being a bit cold is fine because you can put on a comfy sweater or sweatshirt and bundle up nice and cuddly. But being hot? You can only undress till your naked and then what?

Unfortunately I live in one of the hottest places in the US: Dallas, TX. My job is located here and it's a good job so I foresee myself living here for a long time. OMG last summer we had I think 71 days of 100 degrees or higher. Just miserable.

Oh, and seat heaters for your car? FORGET IT!!!!! Gimme me air conditioned seats please!

But, some people love it! Some people enjoy the sun blazing down on their heads and sweating just by standing outside, and showers that "don't take."

So I'm just curious: are you a hot or cold person?

Stay cool!

I like them both. Being from Cleveland means you get a bit of it all. I hate it when it gets super hot though. Anything 82+ is awful and is time to turn on the air.

I think fall is may favorite season though. Walking through the park is beautiful at that time. I also love the kinda-cool weather where you have to wear a jacket.

Cold weather all the way.

Never understood you beach-and-palm-tree types, though it can be nice enough for a getaway. But to live, give me craggy, lichen-licked granite hugged by snow-kissed pine. The spirit stretches free in the north country; the sky's deepest blue bites into your watering eyes and you can feel your mind expand and join the feathery sky's limitlesness, with the right kind of north-country mind.

This is a hard question to elaborate . I'd say I'm both if there was bacon involved. If not then i'd be more of an in between temp loving dude.

That was quite poetic,

Me too, breaths of fresh cold air sharpens the senses and the earthy scent of nature calms the heart. Although it never really gets too hot here to make a difference.

I used to live in Colorado Springs and it was great except for winter, like October through April. Now I live in Phoenix and it is nice from October until April and horrible the rest of the time. LOL! I switched climates... I would love to live somewhere that feels like San Diego in mid-March, but year round.

Well where I grew up, it commonly gets to 50 and even past 55 (unofficially) throughout summer. I had the pleasure of working at the mine there last summer and living in the spare room at my dads house without a fan or air con... I think everyone enjoys mild weather but I'm one of those people who is more sensitive to cold than hot. Extremes of both are terrible and in hot weather most people adapt to be out of the sun between 8-4 when possible. It also makes for some very good pool parties as well

if i am more than 30 miles inland i prefer the cold weather. i can keep warm but have a hard time keeping cool. here in nor cal, it gets really cold (well 30-40 degrees, i know that's warm to you midwest) or blazing hot in summer (95-115 degrees)

Interesting question. Me and my wife are total polar opposites on this. I love heat, I can cook in 104+, without complaint. Probably all the roofing and siding jobs I've done.
She adores the cold. So much, the house temp is kept so low i wear a light coat at night in the summer, just to stay warm.
Everyone has the "comfort zone", and it's easily divided amongst those familiar with the temp. She works in offices and at peoples homes. So 72 should be the norm to her...maybe even 68, or whatever.
I've baked in a sun long enough to where I had to enjoy it, elsewise, I wouldn't be much in my field.

Does that make sense, or have I just had one too many tall boys?

Anything over 80 with humidity, I can't deal with.

I'm a warm weather person. Spring and Fall are my seasons.

65-75, sunny and moderate wind is my paradise.

Hot weather, 100% of the way ! I prefer dry heat over humid heat, but any kind of heat is better than the cold. I am oddly allergic to the cold so this is probably why i feel this way. However, when I sleep I would much prefer to because cold with a lot of blankets than hot.

That's just me
fun thread !

I grew up in the Great Basin Desert of the US (Western Utah to be exact), and the deep desert is still where I feel the most powerfully alive. Every year starting when I was a little girl, my dad would take us out into some of the most remote and inhospitable parts of the desert and to teach us desert survival. I've always felt that the desert is a source of great spiritual power. It can be no coincidence that the three great monotheisms all arose from the desert, I am certain. The deep desert clarifies and purifies, makes you ever mindful of basic needs and strips away the garbage from your life.

Cold weather all the way, I even think recreationally about moving to north west Canada or Alaska to get away from heat and humidity. When it's cold, you can bundle up, start a nice fire, throw on an electric blanky, or just engauge in vigorous activity to warm up
. When it's too damn hot, you just can't seem to escape it.

I can put on a lot more than I can take off...therefore I can tolerate cold far more than hot...
I am sitting in Florida...when its hot here, its also super humid..not unlike being in a can of soup when its really hot...it breaks electronics, gives people heat stroke, burns the skin, makes mosquitos breed like mad, etc etc etc...

Ideal weather is 70 degrees of course...anything excessively above or below starts becoming uncomfortable...but as I said, I can put on a lot more than I can take off.

Actually, I love your answer, because usually, in my world, it seems like it is the guys who can't take the heat and crank up the AC, while us females shiver and wrap up in sweaters and whatnot. At least, that's how it is in my house and my office. So I'm happy to hear your story where the tables are turned...


I think Phoenix is hyper-heat sensitive. As soon as it starts to get warm, every single public place (especially theaters, restaurants, etc) crank the AC sky-high to the point where it is ridiculous! I literally have to take a sweater with me when I go to see a movie, when it is over 100 degrees outside. How crazy is that?!? I feel so stupid walking around, carrying my sweater, just so I can take it into the theater to be comfortable for the movie.

True that! Now you made me feel guilty for complaining about the heat here... But I refuse to feel guilty for complaining about the insane air conditioning!

Living in Canada we get both extremes , in summer it gets up to 30 Celsius and in winter it drops to - 30 Celsius . Both extremes have there ups and downs but I would have to agree with You about the colder weather ! You can always put a sweater on !! Cold weather is hard on the vehicles though !!

I'm not a weather person at all. I hate weather and think it should be banned. Think of all the people that weather has killed over the years. I hope Congress passes a law making weather completely illegal. Anyone found with weather related paraphernalia should be indefinitely detained without trial.

Vancouver is where it's at if you like the rain and average weather all the time for the rest of your life.


for you Americans, it is always 45-70 degrees. ALLLLLLLWAYS.
90 isnt out of the question in summer nor is below freezing in winter.

I am a 14 degree celsius on a sun and cloud kind of guy. too much of anything drives me insane.
