i hope the temperature never drops below 65f for the next 40-50 years.

there, i said it...

Could we establish an upper bound as well? Maybe Texas can export its heat for use during a Chicago winter.

Snow should be kept where it belongs -- on the ski slopes. Keep it the hell off city streets where it serves no purpose whatsoever, except to provide part-time work for people whose only earthly possession is a shovel. I like to ski, too, but I've never tried schussing down Columbus Ave. against (or with) traffic. That's what states like New Hampshire and Vermont and Colorado are for.

I'll say it again...

I have no idea why anyone could stand to live in the South before air conditioning. I have no idea why anyone would live in the North after air conditioning.

Me, I'm a woman for transition seasons. Spring and fall are much more exciting that burgeoning growth or dormancy.

Here in Houston, where one sweats day and night 8 to 9 months of the years, 40 and 50 degrees sounds mighty good.

another texan chiming in


50 degrees?
That would be a god send weather miracle that I would almost bow to.

We had 75 mph winds last night with almost 6 hours of down pour.

Today was ok. Cool but abit muggy.
Tomorrow will be so damn humid you can drink the air and lick the wind.

Texas is beautiful...but dang it all. .. Im with DD.
We GOT to siphon this heat some where else.

Summers here 105 humidity around 90%

Winters, if you want to call it that, we are lucky to get 20 days over the span of 3 months where it hits 30 degrees.
And that is usualy in the middle of the night.

Spring, is nice, but yet humid as hell
and fall?? well... that is what I would call our supposed winters.

And yet another Texan giving her 2 Cents !

65 degrees? Sign me up but it can't ever get hotter than 79.

You guys want some of the heat? Be my guest!

I got to live in snow for 3 years in New jersey while I went to school and I gotta tell ya, I don't see the problem. Get a 4 wheel drive Ford Bronco like I had and just drive through it all. I loved it.

What's going on?
Southern California barely has 68 F and no sun, and the east coast
is sweating at 77 F. That's not how it supposed to be! http://www.borge.diesal.de/board02/images/smiles/schlauch.gif

We didn't really get a winter here in our region of North Carolina, and as a result I pick 4 or 5 ticks off myself every evening before getting into the shower... Gimme some damn winter.

Region, wha? You don't like the cold? What the blankity-blank are you living in New England for?

One more question-- Do you have a high heat limit? Boston in 90 degrees is pretty unbearable.

Gala, like a told George -- i live here because all the other great things about bahstin make its shiddy weather tolerable.

i hate cold weather, and i don't ski.
i hibernate as much as possible.

i love summer and the hot, humid weather that comes with it.
makes me feel more alive, somehow...

Gotcha. Region.

Last summer, I was in a health food store after a brutal heat wave. There was some chic who came in and started buying all the divination candles to pray to her new age Gods that the heat never return again.

Fat chance honey, I thought, her money would have been better spent on buying a stinking air conditioner.

I feel it is my self-apponted duty to be the negative nelly and tell you you are a dreamer. With that said, where would we be without hope?

yeah, i figure maybe i got an outside chance of being a part of that global-warming thing.

don't get me wrong -- we have the A/C cranking in the summer.

but, i dunno... there's something about walking out of a climate-controlled building and into a hot, heavy summer day...
