    Hi Renee, I would much rather put up with the cold than 100 degree weather. You can put on many layers to keep you warm, but you can only take off a certain amount of clothes. smile

      It's better to be less clothed and running around in the hot sun :- )  - FREEDOM! Ha Ha!

    I love the Summer! As long as there is a body of water to take a dip in and I can sip on a margarita or mango daiquiri while listening to my iPod under a hut watching people stroll the beach....(That's heaven on earth) to me! :-)
    I love going to the caribbean islands, Cancun, and similar destinations during the Summer. A lot of people say it's too hot for them during that time of year.

      My favorite carribbean island was St. Lucia - it felt like home to me - best cruise ever

    I'm from the southern coastal area of South Carolina. Hot and humid sunny temps are my favorite. I can always cool off in the ocean or lake. I however never can seem to get warm on a cold day no matter how many layers I put on!

      Exactly peeples! Cold weather is just that, cold!

    I'll take cold over extreme heat anyday. Layers of clothes, soup and hot chocolate, the fire place and body heat can all help to keep you warm.

      Ooo la la soup, hot chocolate, fire place and body heat - sounds cozy.  But, the cold - stay away!  Thanks for sharing!

    I live in the northeast and right now it's about 5 degrees and very windy, so the wind chill is probably at about -10...and promises to get colder tonight......it's horrible. I prefer to sweat in the heat....

      Five degrees! Yuck! Pew! Bleh! I'm allergic to freezing temperatures.  I think my brain laughs at me for staying in Maryland all this time because I hate cold weather, but am still here every winter.

    I'd rather freeze as long as I have my gear on. There's nothing you can do in 100 degree heat, especially in DC humidity. Yuck!

      Oh Jan yucky cold weather.  100 degree heat you can go outside and play tennis.  That's the best tennis weather, at least that's what my coaches said.  :-)  The South Africa heat was the best to me.  It was hot and humid and dry, but nice weather.

    Thank you all for your comments.  Summer heat all the way, baby!  Thanks for stopping by, and keep hubbing!

    12 degrees would be better than 100. Many layers of clothing does help although after a few weeks it would get annoying. Just like the heat.

      12 degrees is for the birds.  Well maybe not cause that's when they fly south.  Ha Ha!

    100 degrees, please!!! I'd much rather sweat it out than be cold! I hate winter and even though summer can get uncomfortable, I can handle it much better.

      ReneeDC1979posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Exactly Valene.   I get to enjoy the heat, go to the pool, and drink frozen lemonade outside!  Thanks for stoppping by and keep hubbing!

      Ummm how about no, but if I ever feel a little crazy, I'll think about it.

    I like the heat as I can't always get warmed up if I'm cold.  However, I will fall back on my one saying in relation to the weather:

    "You can always put more clothes on.  It's only socially acceptable to take so many off!"

    Would prefer freezing weather as compared to Summers.

    ReneeDC1979, I would much rather sweat in 100 degrees than freeze in 12 degree weather. Oh, by the way was that 12 or 12 below?

    1. ReneeDC1979 profile image60
      ReneeDC1979posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Either one platinum.  Both are cold to me, and I'm allergic to them. ;-)

    That's a tough choice. But I would prefer the later. You can try and keep yourself warm by wearing woolens or sitting around bonfire. Summers make me restless.

    1. ReneeDC1979 profile image60
      ReneeDC1979posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Awwww Chitrangada. I'll take warm weather and less clothing any day.  Summer all the way.  Thanks for stopping by.  Keep hubbing!

    Personally, I would prefer neither of these situations....however, I like to be cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

      ReneeDC1979posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      That's a fair answer.  Now I'll accept those conditions of they worked like that.

    I love summer time because of the activities, but you can always put on more clothes to keep warm. People look at your funny when you take off too many to stay cool!
