Yeah averages are just that; averages....of the 10 years that I was there, we were off the average many times. Summers last a bit too long in Vegas if you ask me.

Also, no global warming where I live. We have been 15 degrees below normal. We had frost again Saturday night. I also heard some sleet hit the windows for a few minutes last evening. I don't think it is going to be very warm here this summer. I think those Hudson Bay lows will keep setting up bringing the colder air from Canada down.

You would survive. Your blood would thicken up. Start munching on all that high calorie foods they eat up here and you will be fine. :lol My supervisor is from the hot part of Iran and he has lived up her for 24 years. Also, we have a gal from Mexico City that never seen snow in her life. She married someone that lived in Southern California that had relatives up here and they died and left them their place to him. So he and her moved up here. She drives over 30 miles to work each day in a blinding snow squall.

Here is what you will have to deal with in the winter. Yes this is a paved state highway. This was taken just north of where my parents live during a prolonged lake effect snow event. I think the record was 30 days straight of snow here.

Not warm enough for me here. I live a short walk from the Atlantic Ocean, which is just above 60 degrees here. The ocean itself is warming up pretty fast, but it didn't even hit 70 here today. Last year the high was 86, and few days later it was in the 100's. This Thursday and Friday aren't supposed to get above the mid 60's. The climate here can be pretty variable, especially by the ocean. Luckily, our deck has a microclimate that makes it a few degrees warmer due to apartments absorbing some of the wind. The wind is annoying, though. I hate it when people talk about the "sea breeze". "Oh, I would love to live by the ocean. You have that sea breeze". Go kill yourself. I hate the breeze. It slows me down on my bike, for one, knocks things over, and makes it feel cooler when it's already cool. Plus, I like to collect exotic plants and they often like heat. No fun. I like being hot. I didn't wait all winter and spring to be cooled off by anything. I guess the only good thing about living right by the ocean is that the last frost advisories are a lot sooner. The ocean keeps the temperatures here above freezing pretty good once we're into spring.

We get lake breezes here they can come out of the West, NW, N, NE, and East. We usually get them in spring into early summer. The big lake is real cold this year due to almost completely freezing over in the winter. I think the water temps are still in the 30's here. I will have to take a look to see what they are now, but it isn't warm. Only the brave swims in that water. I seen kids swimming and seen their lips were blue. :lol

So, does that mean you would go swimming here? I bet you could do it. 63 degrees? Your blood is thick enough. It cracks me up when people come here for the weekend walk around in bathing suits when it's barely 70 degrees, like it's Florida or something. A bunch of fakers. Anything to get that tan, I guess.

I probably wouldn't swim anyways. Middle agers are to be heard and not to be seen. :lol
I just checked the big lakes temp and it still is very cold.

global warming is when the globe warms on average, not everywhere on the globe. In some places it could actually get colder due to disruptions in weather patterns, and other places will get really hot.

I love the heat! Back in Feb (end of our summer) we had a full week of above 45 - 49 (celcius) thats about 118+ in your terms? (that was a guess) I know it got to 120 in your measurements, coz I checked back then. It was record breaking here. Ive stood hot temps before, (I lived in a desert) but that week was hell.
Thats when 200+ people died in a wildfire.

I dont actually believe in global warming, I think its a natural cycle of the earth in the solar system.

A natural cycle, yes, but the globe is still getting warmer, so it's global warming. I agree with you though, all the brouhaha is getting a bit amusing.

Agreed. People seem to think that global warming means it will get extremely hot everywhere. I fail to see how anyone can think that humans pumping pollutants in the atmosphere over decades and changing the earth is a hard theory to buy.

It's June 2 and currently 46 degrees in Milwaukee. Not exactly what'd I'd call summer weather. I only had to use the AC one day so far this year and that was only for several minutes.

Well the sun continues lacking sunspots. It is suppose to be into the next cycle, but fails to start. Also, the solar wind has weaken quite a bit. They are thinking that the sun maybe going into a Maunder Minimum. The last time that happen was in the 1700's. That brought very cold weather to this country.

We've had beautiful summer weather since the beginning of April - sunny and in the 70s and 80s. It's 77 and sunny here right now.

I'm not complaining. I've heard it gets awful here in the actual summer.

Have a nice day,
Kelly :)
