Do you prefer the heat of the summer, or the cold of the winter?
All right: are you a winter person? or a summer person? Consider carefully now. read more
Heat, heat, heat. I can always take off layers. But in the winter I feel like no matter how many layers I put on I can never keep warm.
I prefer summer. I know what to do about the heat. My experiences north of Texas tell me that I do not handle cold well.
Heat of the summer because we have air conditioning and I can get cooled off if I need to. The cold goes right thru me and my fibromyalgia making it very painful.
In a perfect world I'd always be somewhere between the two extremes! But if I have to choose, I'll always choose cold over hot. It's easy to add more layers, but in hot (and especially hot/humid) places, once you get down to bare skin, that's about as far as you can go!
Let me preface my answer by saying that I live in So. Calif where it's usually 70 and mild. Summer, however, can get up to 108. I work out in the elements regardless of the season, and I prefer the cold (30's) to high temperatures (100+). I live and work without central A/C.
I used to like summer but here in Canada, I am very allergy to many things, ragweeds, pollens and many more including our carpet when it is humid, I keep sneezing every minute till I will take some pills or nose spray that are very strong. So now I prefer winter because the air is pure and clean for my nose. Of course I can't bear the cold but it is better than sneezing every minute. and I cannot go out anyway I just stay home. My nose seems to fly when I sneeze because of my allergies lol!
I would prefer some cold of the winter in summer and some heat of the summer in winter. But God does not care about my preferences!
At the moment I am enjoying both yesterday it was 34 where I live. Today it is raining and 17 so I like both when you need it.
I prefer heat than cold because I am from temperate region and I cannot tolerate cold for long time.
Hello, I live in Central California, in what would naturally be a desert, if there was no aquaduct.
Summer temperatures here can reach 110 degrees F. for the months of June until September. Believe me anything over 100 F. is just HOT.
I prefer the relative cold of winter, it can get to about 32 F. at night in winter but normally hoversaround the 40 degree level.
Daytime temperatures are often in the upper 50's-low 60's F. So Winter is much nicer.
My preference is the heat of the Summer. I live in Florida and our Summers are extremely hot and humid. While I do not enjoy the humidity I definitely prefer heat to cold.
For some reason, the cold is depressing to me. Warmth just makes me feel alive.
Even with blue fingers, I prefer the cold.
Hot and humid weather leaves me with absolutely no energy, and air-conditioning plays havoc with my sinuses (some fibromyalgia sufferers have trouble with cold, I'm one of those who have trouble with heat). I was regularly flattened in the Australian summer (30-40C). I have found that -10C and snow is much easier for me to deal with, although it does make a walking-commute over icy roads more dangerous.
I'm pretty skinny so I do okay in the heat. The cold on the other hand gets to my bones pretty quick...like today!
I like the heat of summer as I get cold easily. Nice not to have chills during this season!
I prefer the heat in the summer. In winter I spend most of the time inside and when I go outside there is not a lot to see except snow and ice. In the summer I go for bike rides to provincial parks, take pictures of animals and relax at the beach. I like it when it is warm enough to go swimming. If it is hot I can stay inside or cool off by going to the lake.
In the winter I tend to gain some weight like most people. I am at my best in the summer. My seasonal allergies bothered me a lot but they went away after I started meditating. When I want to relax I visualize a relaxing beach.
I live in the Northeast and I am not a cold weather person at all....I only go outside when I have to in the winter..brrrrrrrrr. I thrive in the heat...but hate humidity (bad hair days My favorite weather day is when it's warm and sunny and the humidity is low. I'm soooo looking forward to spring!!
I prefer the in-between. It's summer here: Sunday was 35C, yesterday 28C and today at the moment it is 16C. Melbourne lies in the path of the Westerly Variables and they sure vary. One thing: we can never say the weather is boring!
I love the warmth of a summer day. I live in Los Angeles so our summers still leave a nice ocean breeze. Simply beautiful
I love to cold, because it brings beautiful snow. I enjoy summer, and warm climates, but I think I will always live in a cold climate.

Which do you prefer, Summer or Winter?Summer; most definitely. Swimming and bikinis on the beach become an everyday possibility. It's the season that causes the forest to grow green and full of life. I LOVE summer!

In an ongoing effort to retain valuable funds and live frugally, I am searching for the best temperatures for our home. Right now we are keeping it at 69 during winter and 74 during the summer and turning it manually at night. I wish to computerize this process but haven't yet researched the...
