While I personally am not bothered by heat and summer, big cities in the Northeast and Midwest are hellish in summer.

While Atlanta and Miami are incredibly hot and humid, they're also designed for that weather--you go from air conditioned car into air conditioned office/house/mall and don't need to spend much time outside.

And Miami is on the water and there are swimming pools everywhere.

Manhattan, Chicago, DC et al are just hot and disgusting and you are often someplace with no air conditioning, even if you're just walking two blocks from your office to get lunch.

You get used to it like anything else, but it is unpleasant.

My only problem with winter is snow. Snow really fucks things up. It kills people in accidents. You have to wait for roads to get plowed. You have to shovel and clean off your vehicle perhaps early in the morning when you’re barely awake. It can knock your power out for days on end. I don’t mind winter so long as it doesn’t snow much or preferably not at all.

It isn't the high temps, it is the smothering humidity that is unbearable. Many people die from heat strokes here every year. Not having air conditioners is deadly. I had a heat stroke once when I was 16 years old during a heat wave. I was at the beach with friends. We separated for awhile while they went for food. I could not move I have never been so weak and helpless. I thought I was going to lay there and die because people though I was just sun bathing on the beach, laying on my beach towel. I crawled towards the bathroom, getting within inches of the shower. I never made it. They found me there, unconscious. My temperature had gone up to 106 degrees, the EMT later told me. Very frightening, happened very fast. The took me to the concession stand , in the shade and packed me in ice. They elevated my legs. In a red bikini. The press was out covering the heat wave. Snap! My picture made the front page. Me in a red bikini, legs elevated, passed out. I have never lived it down here, lol! I hate Georgia summers.

The HOT summer (+) months are hell. Anything over 90, yuck. People are smelly, stanky, skanky, they show their ugly or hairy or yellow toe-nailed feet. People in short skimpy clothes when the majority shouldn't be except on their own property. VPL and straps that you don't want to see. No food tastes good when it's that hot except cold comforting foods. You can't sleep. Your power bills go up. You hair won't cooperate. You skin breaks out from sunscreen. No thanks. Winter and spring are much better.

(I can't count fall as it's basically our summer here in LA)

I went to the beach once with a friend who was drunk from before we even arrived at the beach. He passed out on his towel. He's not the worst tanner, but Caucasian with light brown hair. I was pretty much sober. Every few minutes, I'd wake my friend up and say: "Flip over!" So as to avoid getting absolutely scorched on only one side of his body. He did thank me afterwards.

I agree, R30. One can always put on more clothes and huddle under blankets, but the heat is rotten. And the AC gives me sinus problems. I love spring and fall and every year I try to get out in them as much as possible--I may even take up gardening, which I was never attracted to. But the high summer just means too much heat and then the inevitable western wildfires. I'm thinking of getting a gas mask.

Nothing you know about real summer until you visit any of the Persian gulf states. I arrived there 1st of August very late night. It was very hot and humid, but I waked up around 1 PM and looked from the window and found a park across the street that overlooked the gulf, so I decided to go out and see the beach. Never ever in my life I have felt like that before. It was like getting inside a pizza oven. In few seconds I was all sweaty and felt like my skin was burning. An average of very humid115 F for 4 months of the year and between 100 and 115 F for 5 months.

I’m confused about the comments about Las Vegas and southwest US states. Yes, it gets very hot there, but is it humid, too? I thought it was dry as a bone for the most part.

A 95° day with low humidity is actually more bearable to me than 79° and high humidity. Like after it rained late this afternoon here in NYC, the temperature had dropped somewhat from 91° to whatever, but the humidity was off the charts after the rain. It felt like a steam bath outside when I walked my dog.

R6. I live in San Diego. The climate is temperate and moderate, but it by no means perfect. Yes, La Jolla is pretty and wealthy, but at times, it's the cloudiest, gloomiest area of the city. Yes, the "climate" in San Diego is mostly milder than the rest of the country, but the "weather" is a different thing entirely. Throughout the year, we have seasons that granted are not always like other seasonal changes throughout the country, but we do experience weather. Our winters, mostly Nov-March/April can be cold and rainy, particularly Dec through March. These winter and early spring months are not beach weather. While there are are those periodic February days when it can get warm and suny, generally you won't find anyone at the beach because it's freezing. We wear jackets, sweaters, flannels just everyone else. It's just that our cold temps in Dec-Jan go into the 40s and not zero, 10s and 20s. I know, it's a big difference, but we still heat in our houses for several months in a row--and utilities here are expensive. Some winters can be fairly dry, while during other years it rains continually.

While the rest of the country is starting to experience summer in May and June, we have what's known as "May gray/June gloom" when we can have overcast skies for days on end. Often times it clears by noon, but sometimes it never clears. This "marine layer" of clouds is the biggest kept secret in the country because everyone thinks it's sunny and 72 degrees all the time here when it's not. Sometimes the May gray/June gloom can cover the whole region, and sometimes we just have a mild case and it's sunny and beautiful. July is generally nice, but in the recent many years, parts of July, August and some of September is now full of oppressive humidity, which was was the case years ago.

So yes, overall, it's milder than other places...sometimes cold, often times hot or moderate. Sometimes cloudy and rainy, sometimes sunny and beautiful. Nights can be cool or cold because the Southwest is basically a desert--often times "a paved desert" that looks like a city, but nonetheless with desert temperatures. I'm not complaining. I'm simply trying to give a realistic picture of San Diego weather versus San Diego climate.
