.....My dad always like winters best because he figured he could put enough clothes on to stay warm but he could not take enough off to stay cool.

Im pretty close to your Dad Bill, only my version goes like this:

In the winter a well equipped guy can always add another layer where the body part is cold
In the summer a guy or gal can only take so much off and still stay out of jail, once the underwear comes off your gone to the big house and considered a sex offender, unless of course you are at a nudist camp ;).

Man, am I ever glad you started this thread, and I found it. I hate this blistering heat, and seeing
this thread, reminded me, that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Fallwinter. The best time of
the year for me.

I always enjoyed the cold a little better. I can put another layer on if I get cold. Plowing snow is always good seat time. In the heat, it is so hard to recover from overheating. So bring on the cold.

Winter seems to bring on more aches n pains, and I really hate the short daylight hours, and the icy roads (snow chains ughh), frostbite, ya even this crazy 100 plus stuff lately ( its only a week or so around here usually) is better than days, weeks and months of that shivering. blowing, heating bills COLD stuff.

I'm with Matt, give me the heat any day. I think that was about 8 or 10 years ago when they got their last snow down there in South Texas. The heat really doesn't bother me until it gets up to about 105 but I've worked in it as a construction worker. When I get cold I HURT.

I would rather mow grass, and pull weeds than blow snow and shovel money into the hands of the oil guys ! But I do like cold mornings and evenings to sleep :) and tje occasional fire in the stove to take the chill out.... but it ends there, doing wood..... Nope... The dust and insects from the wood.... Nope.. I'll stick to summer thankyou .

Oh darn. I forgot about the firewood thing. Might have to rethink this. It's supposed to
be hot, hot, hot for the next few days. I'll be pulling 14 hour work days outside.
Ok, I re-thinked it.
Lookin forward to making firewood this fall.

I really like all four seasons. BUT, I like Sweetcorn season the best :laughingteeth:
Honestly I don't do well in high heat and humidity. Dry heat is fine.

It's a toss up for me. More fun things to do in warm weather, but less time to do it, or no time at all. Winter is when I get more "personal" time, but then it's cold, but great for shop time. I can handle the cold better than high heat coupled with high humidity.

Hot summer for this guy. I get to work more and I like the heat. I can go for a short jog when it's in the high 90's and not perish. Plus, if you have a way to cool off it makes it less muggy. The cold winter I don't hate but there's less things to do I feel.

I used to be able to handle either with no problems. I could wear bluejeans in the summer and short sleeves in the winter. Now, however, health problems and age have snuck up on me. I can't keep enough liquid in me in the hotter weather and in the cold my arthritis hurts.
