Would you rather live where most often daily temps were lower than 50 or higher than 90?

OK, we know this is a tough question. And we also know it depends on your body temperature—some people run hot, while others run cold (and age plays a factor in that too). If you absolutely had to pick, would you choose to live in a place where daily temperatures were most often lower than 50° Fahrenheit, or daily temperatures were more often higher than 90° Fahrenheit?

Cooler works for me. I have MS and can’t take the heat.

It is easier to and less expensive to get warm than it is to cool off😎

Tom H. (@guest_178656)

Would love to stay between 50-80. Don’t mind a little cooler, but I can’t take the heat. Dry, or otherwise!

Not a tough question at all. Lower than 50 is good. I can go outside and do things, dressed in layers. 85-90 and above is too hot, requires the air conditioner, can’t do anything outside as I have asthma and there’s only so much you can take off!

I’d take neither one of those choices. Above 90 degrees would be too hot and below 50 degrees may be too cool. I’d take constant average of 75 degree temp.

Depends if the 90 degrees is “dry heat” or if it is with humidity to match.

Still sitting here scratching my head trying to figure out what value of any kind this question has.

Neither. It’s why we’re mobile. We follow the seasons.

Don’t like heat but on the 90 degree days at least some part of the day will be cooler. On the 50 degree days there will seldom be any warm days at all. Agree with comments. Travel to the 60-80 degree weather.

Suffered from frostbite as a young man and cold weather is no longer enjoyable or comfortable..

Isn’t this why we RV? Drive until the temps are just right and settle in. At least that’s what we do.

Depends on the humidity.

Tom Hosack (@guest_178622)

Neither. 70’s would be ideal.

I’m with you. Better question might have been below 65 or above 80.

We have lived near Seattle for 25 years, and are acclimated to the cold now. When it gets above 85F, I’m generally done!

Hi, Jeff. Yep, I’ve lived just north of Seattle since 1946. I really like our generally moderate temps. If it gets above 80 or 85, I can barely function. I finally broke down and bought a little portable AC so I can stay more comfortable in my home office, anyway. Stay cool! And have a great day. 😀 –Diane

Easier for me to cool down than to warm up.

Frank Heim (@guest_178614)

Neither! 60 to 85

I lived and worked on the canadian border for 15 years. 6 months of cold and extreme cold when you have to work in it is tiring at best. I now live in the south. I have an acre lot for camping, in the mtns. Of murphy n.c. so I can still capture the flora and fauna of spring and fall. But full time res. South ga.

I choose 90 since the wife would freeze if it was 50 or below wall day

Bob p (@guest_178602)

Neither, I would like to live where temps never exceed 75 or below 65!
