It was 31 degrees when I went to bed and 24 degrees this morning. This is Spring?

Personally I love this weather. I hate the summer, rather it was 30 degrees out. At least you can just put more clothes on.

Agreed. I'm not a hot weather person. :x

Now if I can only figure out how to build a coal fired air conditioner. :idea:

Me too! ...I prefer the fall & winter as I hate humidity. (But I do like the change of seasons & having just a few months of summer is fine)

I'd be more happy with one long spring and fall, skip the summer.

Don't get me wrong, I agree with the masses in this thread. If it get's above 75, too darn hot! If I had to be stuck with one outdoor temp it would be around 45. But.... it's been a long, long winter & I'm ready for some less nasty weather.

Coal fired A/C..... burn it, make steam, drive an alternator. No problem!

I prefer cooler weather as well, up here in the hills it doesn't get very hot though so I feel lucky.
