    Which weather extreme would you choose?

    This summer has been crazy hot and that got my co-workers and I to the discussion of if you have to choose one weather temp extreme (hot vs cold) which would you pick. We all went cold.

    Summer weather extremes? i.e. 60 vs. 100? I would take the 60 but I would take a hot Summer over cold Winter (if that makes sense)...

    Re: Which weather extreme would you choose?

    I'll always take hot over cold. Hate cold weather, and at least when its really hot in the summer it at least gets bearable in the evenings.... plus its great for going swimming in. Cold? Not a fan. This last year has been one of my favorites.

    Hot. You can still be outside doing summer activities. In extreme cold not much you can do but stay inside and wish for summer.

    I'll take heat over cold any day. If it's 100 degrees out, it means it can't snow and the roads can't ice over.

    This is going to depend on when you are asking me, in the winter I would say hot, but in the summer I'm going to go with cold. I'm actually a fan of Fall weather the most out of anything.

    I was going to say cold, but that's a good point.

    Over time you can get used to the heat. I could never enjoy snow or cold and that's a major reason I'm not sure I could ever move back to Iowa.

    Re: Which weather extreme would you choose?

    I would choose hot 10 times out of 10. The cold feels paralyzing. With the heat I sweat, but I can still do what I want.

    I like spring and fall. Actually my favorite is October with warm days, then sweatshirt weather at night.

    Cold. I can always add more layers. I hate to sweat when I'm not working out.
