Summer is when I am most happy. Shy

Dodgy you try being a woman in her mid-40's.....anything over 85 might as well be HELL. Evil_monster Its too hot for me here in NC in the summer. I hide in the a/c all summer long.

Visit me down south. You'll melt. Evil_monster Heart

That's not comfortable, that's Satan's armpit.

Are you crazy? Anything below 60 is unbearable. Let's boost 85 up to 95 and I am the happiest person on the planet.

It was -20 C this morning here AND THAT'S THE WAY I LIKES IT.

But seriously once the air is warmer than your skin your options are A) do nothing, ever; or B) be massively uncomfortable no matter what.

High 50s (F) is pretty much perfect for outdoor temperatures.

That is not a utopia. That is a concentration camp. Sad

Oh, please. The POW camps have been shut down since the war.

Canada-- Consider


I spent 2 years in Minneapolis......the winter there was brutal. Are there places in Canada that have mild winters?

15 years later and I still remember what -56F wind chill felt like and I don't ever want to be that cold ever again!

Yabut, that's in the hellhole of Sudbury, Ontario. No one in his right mind confuses that place for Utopia. Blink

Even the universe thinks it sucks - it got whacked with a ginormous meteor.

"The Sudbury Basin, also known as Sudbury Structure or the Sudbury Nickel Irruptive, is a major geologic structure in Ontario, Canada.
It is the second-largest known impact crater or astrobleme on Earth, as well as one of the oldest."

Yes. Coastal British Columbia, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.

The lower mainland in BC is the same as the US pacific northwest. Pretty much constant year-round, but altitude dependent.

Or there's south-central Ontario. Though some of that is the human waste heat in the GTA. Niagara is a pretty warm microclimate.

It's all basically exactly the same as the equivalent part of the US 100 km farther south.
(well, except things like lake effect snow falling primarily in the US due to prevailing winds, I guess)

Nova Scotia's nice because of Cape Breton and the Bay of Fundy tidal bore. The Cabot Trail is very cool. Think I probably own some long-forgotten property up there somewhere. The problem with PEI is that's where Hamata k lives. Tongue

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Don't forget Wanapitei.

But seriously. We have trees again and everything!
