    You can always put more clothes on to stay warm in the winter.

    No matter how nekkid you get though, it's still gonna be hot in the summer.

    I couldn't care either way about the temp, but I would be fine with overcast from here on out. If my damned eyes get any more light sensitive, I'll turn into Roy Orbison

    I like cool weather myself.

    I wish we had more fall weather and not go from 92/75 to 58/30 so fast. 72/55 is my happy place.

    If you don’t like the cold get he heck out of the mountains. Plenty of warm places to live. Heck move your complaining butt to CA. Plenty of hot there.

    That's rough, telling someone to go to hell over just a difference of opinion on weather. Nobody should be sent to California as punishment, we have a law against cruel and unusual punishment.

    my favorite activities occur in the fall, and cold nights and crisp cool mornings with coffee in front of my fire don't bother me in the slightest bit. 88 degrees in Sept AT DUSK bother me.

    Nobody says the day is longer, but I don't like when it's still dark at 0700. More of the hours when more people are awake are light.

    Looked at some literature about the Canary Islands once. Average temp in summer is 73 degrees. Average temp in the winter is 72 degrees. Garden of Eden???????

    I just want us to have 4 seasons instead of just Winter and Summer. We used to have spring and fall ,but the last few years only Summer and Winter.

    I don't even want to visit any Communist held states.

    I moved south in part to get away from the cold. I’m good with 55-78 but would take warmer vs colder any day.

    I moved to NC in January, from a place where we averaged 10 feet of snow a year, and winter*** was about 5 months long.

    I’ll let you know when it’s cold. You’ll probably be waiting a long time before you hear from me.

    Heck, since I don’t work outside, and sleep at night, I don’t see the use of a jacket coming any time too soon. ;)



    *** “Winter” defined as “time of the year where I don’t want to go outside. Ran from some time in October to about April.

    I'm ready for it...... raked the yard this afternoon and I was sweating and swatting skeeters. I'm not fond of doing either.

    Looks like some cold nights in the mountains this weekend. Could be a fire pit scene waiting to happen.
