My husband wears jeans year around in aaaaall sorts of weather. Because he is a skinny guy, he has never in his life worn shorts other than for swimming (self conscious thing I guess). So he'll go with jeans from -20 up to 100
It's funny... because I broke out my tank tops and shorts as soon as it hit 60, and he'll complain that it's hot... but refuses to wear anything less thick. Considering he grew up in a tropical country, I guess it's understandable... but then, WHY does he prefer our pennsylvania winters!?
I love temps between 60-75. Above 75 and I feel like I'm dying (actually, I do get ill from the heat quite easily, so it's a physical problem for me to be in too much heat, especially when humidity is thrown in there)
But it depends on the wind. If there's no wind, 60 is just perfect. If there's wind (which chased me inside just as it was getting dark) then I prefer 70-75, as the wind is usually chilly and warrants a coat. I went to visit my cousin in Kansas when I was younger, and they were having a 103 heat wave. Oh it was just awful! and when I lived in my husband's country, we went to Tikal and the temps were around 90 (add to that the humidity as it is quite literally smack dab in the middle of a jungle) and I decided the temples weren't worth visiting again during that time of year
I looove the snow during the winter, but hate the cold. But yes, the one advantage to the cold is that piling on material will help keep it out. You need electricity and machinery to relieve yourself of high heats (seriously... I'm doomed this summer as our AC in the car doesn't work because of a freon leak. Last year was dreadful on hot days!!!!)
But a few more days like this would be so lovely this week! I have a friend coming up from california next week, so I would love to be able to set up the gazebo and bring out the cast iron bar. I have a lot of cleaning to do this week as we finally finished the flooring in the kitchen. So I would greatly appreciate good weather so that I can at least relax half of the day (there are some big advantages to being a stay at home mom... even though I get very bored a lot of times, other times I don't have to worry about not having enough time to get my stuff done)
