    It's days like these when I'm melting that I count the days till stove weather. Only about 3 months to go. I would prefer to heat a space than have to cool it.

    That is why most people in the south love the fall...not because winter is coming, but because summer is over.

    All you people is a little bit crazy. Winter can hold off for another 8 months as far as I am concerned. Get a couple of cold weeks in March and then move right back into spring.

    I live in the northern part of the country for a reason. There's lots to do outside 10 months out of the year. Even when it's below zero and snowy, I can snow shoe or ice fish. All I want to do this time of the year is hide in my basement.

    I'll take the cold over the heat. Easier to warm up than to cool off. I hate Summer.:p

    I have a vivid imagination and I can't even image the one on the left being a chick.

    We have tropical humidity all summer long here in the Mid Atlantic. I'll take shoveling snow over sweating like a pig and getting eaten alive by West Nile infested 'skeeters any day.
    But then, we don't get as much snow as you, so maybe my tune would change if I lived in the midwest.;)

    Schools out, get out the BBQ, FInd a nice place to swim, Have COLD beer,take the kids(or the grandkids ) to the water park and enjoy the season. Im having a great summer with my 6 and 9 Yr old. They love the warm days,get blue lips when swimming anytime it under 90 Deg air temp. The cold wind will blow soon enough and back to school it is.

    I'm a snow lover, all the way! I love winter just as much as some people love summer, I am outdoors all the time, no matter how cold or snowy it gets here. BUT..........I DO love those teensie tiny bikinis on 'da girls in summertime, too!

    I love all the different seasons, but winter is still my favorite. This winter will be extra special in my remodeled great room, with my lovely wife snuggled up close to me by our stone clad fireplace!! I can't wait!!

    It helps when your 48 YR old wife looks as good or better then the majority of the bikini wearers on the beach of any age. (Ill look for the pcs)

    Yer welcome.;) (just teasing).

    Truth be told, my favorite season is fall. Comfy weather. Good fishing. Fall colors, etc.

    Were trying to find the benefits of HOT weather. Bikini watching is one you cant enjoy at most other times of the year.

    I live in New England and even here I prefer the fall. Its my favorite time of year actually. Id be fine to be put into hibernation and skip over July/August each year.

    Today they are predicting a heat index of 104 :(
