    It was 24 C in SW Ontario today. Perfect temperature! Don't really like it when it gets too much hotter.

    Tell you what, live up here in the northeast or northern plains or up in Canada or Alaska for the winter and get back to us.

    I like the warm weather.

    I think that 57 is the ideal riding temperature. Shirt sleeve weather, but I don't sweat.

    I live in Canada and i don't like warm weather. Everything above freezing is just terrifying to me unfortunately the way it goes in Arctic... I don't know where to go next. I hope Mars will be ready soon.

    I'll never forget the day in late March (I was living in Savannah, GA) and went to the local beach. It was chilly! Cold, fog and wind, too! I'm wearing a sweater under a windbreaker and I'm freezing my ass off. See these people cavorting (and that's the only way I know how to describe it) in the surf. I think they're insane or doing some weird fraternity deal. Go down and when this guy comes running out of the surf to get a cold beer from a cooler! I ask him "So how's the water?"

    "Oh, eh! It's so great! What a beautiful day!"

    "Where you from?"

    "Manitoba."

    Growing up in Florida, it was easy to tell the tourists from the locals. Locals didn't swim in the winter.

    Moving to California, I couldn't believe how cold the Pacific was compared with the Gulf.

    Windy, you could pull a reverse "Endless Summer" and follow winter around the globe, filming you and your travelling companion as you go snow boarding. That would be epic.

    Fall is my favorite season in Colorado. We don't have much precipitation. The temperatures aren't ridiculously hot. Just nice.

    We had snow a couple days ago and are expecting snow on Monday. Though, it is so dry here, the snow evaporates fast and 7" of snow will be gone the next day.

    Hot and dry is a lot different from hot and humid.

    Warm and dry (in a wet county) seems best to me.
    Perish any man who suspects that these men either did or suffered anything unseemly.

    Silly boy, every Irishman knows that this is how Norwegians get to the beach.
