Truthful Tuesday — Running Hot or Cold

Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts. A few weeks ago, Frank wanted to know whether the weather affects what we like to eat. Continuing with his weather theme, this week Frank asks…

Would you rather endure cold winter weather or hot summer weather?

As I mentioned in my last response to Frank’s weather-related question, before I moved to the East Bay last February, I used to live in San Francisco. One of the characteristics of San Francisco’s weather is that it’s temperate — the winters are relatively mild and the summers are relatively cool. It never gets too cold in winter or too hot in summer.

Now I live 35 miles to the east of San Francisco, where it does occasionally get down into the thirties in the winter and hits the upper 90s to the low 100s on most days during the summer months.

To answer Frank’s specific question, I’d rather endure cold winter weather because you can always put on extra layers of clothing to keep you warm and toasty. But when it’s very hot, there’s not much you can do to keep cool except to stay inside where it’s air conditioned or spend all your time in a swimming pool until your skin gets all wrinkly.

So, bottom line, cold winter over hot summer.

    I agree after living in both climates, it’s cooler for me!

    Me too! It’s supposed to reach mid-30s here today (don’t know what that is in F, but I guess in the 90s) and I’m getting ready to turn on the air-con. It’s only 9.30am, too.

    For that exact same reason, I agree that cold is better… now if you could just do away with the snow on the roads in winter, it would be better.
