QOTD 2/8

What is your idea of a perfect day, weather-wise? What temp? Clouds? Only sunshine? Wind?

I don't do well in either extreme.
My perfect day would be about 21-22 Celcius (70 F), mostly sunny with a few clouds, and a light breeze.

I get super grumpy when it is HOT. And I can't wait for spring, I am so sick of winter! Give me a nice early summer day Smile

I'm with you...I don't like either of the extremes, hot or cold. Probably good that I live where I do.

Ideal temp for me would be about the same, 21-22 C (70 F) - Shorts & tank tops weather. Sunny is good but a little light clouds to take the edge off is good. Not hot enough for a/c but still nice enough for shorts. I'd like it cooler at night though, so I can sleep. Biggrin

My ideal day would be about 80 F (but DRY heat, NOT humid or yuck!), mostly sunny, and a slight breeze. In New Mexico (where we are now) 80 degrees is heaven... in Michigan (where we use to live) it was often terrible because of the humidity.

I'm going to say 85, party cloudy and at the lake (can I include that?). Definitely not humid. I'm not built to handle humidity.

For me it'd be a thunder storm. I love to watch!

Here in Missouri, I like 70-75, spring thunderstorms, or sunny.

If I were back in New Mexico, I didn't mind when it got to 100. We never had an air condition (just a half broke swap cooler, which only the out going fan worked). If DH ever looses his job or something we are moving back.

Just like most of you said. I like in the 70s. A tank and capris. I like the cool nights in the spring too. So I can sleep with a cool breeze for the windows being open. Love being able to just throw a hoodie on at night and sitting in the deck with DH and a nice cold beer. Smile

I like it hot enough during the day that it's nice in jeans and a tshirt (I don't EVER wear shorts)...but at night, I like (just like Jackie) being able to throw on a hoodie and sit outside with DH. Beer is good Smile lol

However, 70 won't do it for me. That's still a little chilly. I like 80. 75 maybe at night. And if I had to chose between the two extremes? I'd rather be hot ANYWAY versus cold.

About 80 is good with me. A little humidity is ok. I don't mind heat until it gets extreme. Last summer we were in the high 90s/over 100 quite a bit (in Indiana, not in the south!) and I rember being sure I was going to die at the swim meets some nights! But 80 is great.

I could never wear jeans in 80 degrees. When I see people wearing jeans in the summertime it makes me want to puke. LOL.

Low to mid 70's and the sun shining! Slight breeze in the air. Smile I need to move to san diego

I hate florida summers, but our winters are the weather above for the most part which helps me get through summer.

Live in a hot climate for a few years and 80 will feel slightly chilly when there is a breeze, lol!

I grew up in Michigan, so shorts went on at 65 degrees. Now 65 and I'm in a coat and I wear jeans in high 80s. Wink
