Y'all should move to Florida, we have consistency....90F to 104F from June to October.....nothing ever surprises you, except the odd thunderstorm which might bring the temp down to the high 80's for an hour or 2.

English weather is horribly inconsistent, horribly hot to horribly cold in a matter of hours. As least in Florida we know it is going to be horribly hot for months and can plan accordingly, after which we can live the other 7 months "naturally"....without heating or cooling :)

Turn the A/C on in late May, turn it off in Mid-October......life is simple, year in, year out!

Consistency is good, having functional mechanical solutions to the extremes is necessary, but, not a big problem to achieve :)

Or Texas!

Consistently hot here, from May through October. And not neraly enough of those fabulous Florida-style thunderstorms to help ease our drought conditions or cool things off for a few hours.

Except for the occasional devastating hurricane you mean? ;-)

Surprised by a hurricane? Maybe, but only if you stay behind after you've been warned to leave.

San Francisco, CA is the way to go. Never too hot nor too cold to ride a motorcycle. That is my definition of a good climate.

You have to worry about earthquakes, but if you put all your camping gear sealed in a garbage can and leave it in your backyard, that is all you can do.

DG-I suppose you're right, the hurricanes should be no surprise if you live in Florida.

Move to Alaska! The weather is...

Never mind.

Really? I went to Florida on holiday in November 2000 and it was ******* freezing. They were burning gas heaters in the Tiki huts!

I guess I can amend Essex_boy's post being the other East Anglian here - today we are back to hot and I carried a jacked across London all day whilst sweatting and swearing.

They call it 'summer'...If you don't like the weather in England, wait five minutes!

Last Saturday afternoon the heat and humidity in the West of Scotland was almost unbearable. Today? Raining and cold.

Yeah, I said consistant May to October.....November can get chilly for a couple of days!.....Usually only a couple of days though!

Mexico is the place to be in November......Acapulco is glorious at that time of year! A little later in the year (Dec, Jan, Feb), post Hurricane season, then the Cancun side is the place to be.
