Yes it is!  I love the cooler weather seasons.  I don't tolerate heat well.  Even my mother who's moved to a warmer climate laments not experiencing the change of seasons and the cool crisp air here in the Northeast.

cassie. Beware, you will be called a Liberal. ;D

Oh, I've been called plenty worse.


Isn’t it great that we all love different weather? And there is a place for us all on earth where we thrive. :)

You know, I'm totally willing to endure the 100+ summers for those fantastic winters that are in the 70s. Match that with the sea breeze rolling in, and I love it here.

Fortunately, we seldom see snow around here. But, it does get cold enough. And I know when the cold is on it's way. Getting old has given me a painful barometer called rhuematism. Warning for the younger generations: it's genetic. If your parents or grandparents got it, so will you.

It can sometimes be a pain getting cold weather gear. Most places only sell parkas, hats, and gloves as if Texas is part of Hawaii. Global climate change has not made it that warm in the winters yet.

My parent likes to keep it at 68 degrees at home. I'd prefer 70, but most of the time I'm ok with a few degrees below that. I like the cold more than the heat. I can at least layer up if I'm too cold, but in the heat...there's no escape. I'm actually numb to temperature half the time. In most places like restaurants or malls, I don't notice it unless it's at either extremes.
