But seriously, when it's this hot and humid, I always wonder what I find more oppressive: scorching hot weather or bitter cold.
I think, and I realize that I might be biased due to current conditions, that really hot weather bothers me more than really cold weather.
Obviously, I like summer exponentially more than winter, but if I had to choose to be a little cool or a little warm, I'd probably opt for warm. If I had to be a lot cold or a lot hot, I'd choose cold.
Maybe it's you can always bundle up when it's frigid, but when it's 95 degrees, you're pretty much stuck, wilting under the sun.
On the other hand, if I revisit this topic in January, I may feel the exact opposite. Milwaukeeans have short attention spans when it comes to weather. I know I do.
But what say you? Would you rather be sweating or shivering? Chime in using the Talkbacks below.
