I can't stand the cold. Absolutely hate winter time and any temps below 60F. The heat on the other hand I handle just fine. There's always a shade tree or cold drink to provide immediate relief if you overheat.
Oh my! 50-70 is the perfect temps, I'd rather be 55 outside than 75.
'Here' when it is 95 degrees out, the humidity is the same. It's aweful. Sufficating.
Cold is ok down to about zero, if there is no wind.
The minus 30 for lows, minus 17 for a high we had the other week was kinda much, but - at minus 9 with no wind, I worked up a bit of a sweat just doing normal chores, was only in my shirt & pants, cap, a hooded sweat shert, and a thin coveralls.
It's all what you are used to, but 60 is about perfect temp for working outdoors, don't really want it much warmer!
Neighbor of mine came from Arizona, the 115 degree heat. We were chatting one hot summer, it was about 90. I said so which is worse, the dry heat of 115 down there or our humid heat up here? No contest at all, she said the humid heat up here is aweful compared to 115 down there.
