Ditto for me.  But I'm in MD, generally warmer than MN.  I'm thinking FL.  Or Mexico.

I'd rather eat one good meal a day than 3 squares of garbage.

I don't mind the cold so much but as I get older I like the snow less and less.

90 is too hot. I'm a 65-70 degree guy myself.

I like 70 too, but I'll take 90 over 20.

I probably would too, but it would have to be a dry 90. I really hate humidity.

I'm stuck with it. I don't need to spend any money on lotion though. ;D

Not me. It's easier to stay warm than to stay cool IMO.

No. You can always bundle up to stay warm but you can only get so naked to stay cool. Now, I'm not talking snot freezing cold like sub-zero, but teens or 20's...no big deal to me.

What I could live without is the dark, the cold, the damp and the mud.  When everything turns brown and the skies are always grey... somebody stop me, I'm depressing the %$# out of myself!!!

I'll take my Cohiba and a rum by the pool while you're shoveling your driveway doing your best impression of Bibendum.  ;)

I find that a few shots of JD goes good with snow removal. ;D Actually that about the only time I drink liquor anymore. Then there's nothing like coming inside afterwards and sitting next to the fireplace and sipping a favorite adult beverage.

I enjoy the change of seasons. While I don't care as much for the white stuff as I get older, snow can be beautiful at times and also fun. I don't think that I'd like to live somewhere where it's always warm. Seems like it would get kind of boring.

My wife's aunt and uncle moved to Miami a few years ago because they said that they were tired of the cold. Now they sit inside all day, every day in the air conditioning and complain how hot and humid it is and how bad the bugs are. ::) Go figure.

I'd rather sweat than shiver! 90 is uncomfortable, 30-40 below hurts. I see all my neighbors and family and friends when it's hot. When it dips to less than zero and inparticular the stretches of 40 below with windchills of -70....ickkk. I don't see anyone for weeks and they live right next door. Get out of the car, wave and run in the house. Much rather mow the lawn than start the snowblower!! :-\
