    The outdoors in summer does not like me.
    I burn easily. I don't like being hot. I have already had a poison ivy rash.
    Winter isn't so bad.

    I'm not crazy about either extreme but I'd rather heat and humidity than cold and snow but there is no way I would live someplace like Florida. Since I've joined MFP about 3 years ago, I can tolerate the heat better. Less insulation.

    I find myself unhappy in either extreme. When it's January and a whole 2 degrees that sucks, but so does 107 degrees too. I could be perfectly comfortable in 75-80 degree weather no humidity maybe a light breeze and sunny..

    Hence, the traffic on a San Diego Freeway.

    Favorite season: fall

    Mine too. Comfy sweater/boot weather. Plus seeing all the colorful leaves is an added bonus.

    I love the heat, but hate humidity. but the worst thing about a hot summer day in NYC is when its garbage day and the smells are greatly enhanced due to the heat. I can smell it through the hot breeze early in the morning coming through my window.

    But you live in Brooklyn, home of the hipster, don't those breezes bring in the smell of incense and potpourri? ;)

    hahah! im far from the hipster area. im around where all the restaurants are :(

    Well Mr. Foodporn king that seems quite fitting!

    I spend every other Saturday down in the Dumbo area, and the amount of tourists and crowds milling around the water is mind numbing this time of year.

    Love the heat. Just got back from Reno. Motorcycle Rally. Going to Las Vegas in August. Should be around 110 degrees. Heading to Palm Springs in September where it will be a chilly 90 degrees or so.

    I can't stand the heat. I burn, and keep burning. Give me a/c any day.

    I was a deveote sun junky, and living in Arizona suited me to a "T" since I was a kid, but the last few years I find the heat hits me a bit more and I can't hang in it like I used to. At almost 50 I guess that is just part of getting older.

    EDIT to add...of course, I am talking 115+ degree heat not that nice 95 to 100 degree stuff. So my tolerance is still probably way above most folks. I still love it, but not as much after 110 degrees.

    It depends on what I'm doing. I don't mind at all lounging around a pool when it's 95+ degrees out. I don't really burn...I'm usually pretty dark by August.

    I don't like exerting myself in the heat and I do enjoy summer escapes to the mountains for some cooler temps. Fall is my favorite season...early fall with temps in the 80s...mid fall in the 70s...late fall in the 60s for highs is perfect riding weather. Spring is similar temp wise but in reverse, but it's really windy here in the spring so riding can be pretty sporadic. I'm not talking a little breeze either...I'm talking 30+ MPH winds with gusts at 50+ MPH and blowing dust storms.

    I have always had a very wide comfort range, however with age and weight gain my ability to preform as I did when I was younger in the heat has decreased. With that being said I still can work in the yard all day when it's in the 90's with a heat index over 100. I just have to be smarter about it. Take more breaks, drink more water and less beer, and work in the shade when possible.

    I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I grew up in the south and was a child laborer, forced to tend to the crops all summer long at a young age. Not to mention we kids weren't allowed in the house during the day all summer long.
    I also served in the engine room on a ancient ship in the Navy that's engine rooms were over 120 degrees. I was also stationed in Jax Fl. which is hooter than the devils *kitten*. I think all that working in the heat acclimated me for life to the heat.

    I love the heat, but I will admit, I lived in Phoenix for a year and that's a different animal. Actually, lived in Mesa. 100° felt hot but good, but getting up to 110°+.......that, it's a dry heat stuff don't fly anymore.....it's friggin blast furnace hot. I guess I would still like it better than extreme cold though.

    Yeah, I came from NY so went from dang cold to dang hot. I laugh when family visits and walk off the plane. the normal quote is, "OMG, it's like standing in a flippin' hair dryer!". It is a crazy scorching heat compared to like 90's and humid in Florida or Texas, which I can take much better overall.
