    It's that button in the car that you never push. In 35 Summers in New Hamster, I believe I've used the car AC twice.


    A traditional NH Fourth of July in our family involves swimming in the lake all day, then sitting around a roaring fire at night.

    But if you don't have a winter, you don't really appreciate the summer.

    Rochester New York has two seasons: Winter and the Fourth of July. Some years Rochester does not get the Fourth of July.

    North East Ohio has only two seasons as well... winter and construction season (a.k.a. orange barrel season (freeway repairs)). With the growing overlap, it seems they are trying to get rid of winter.

    I'd rather have the cold. You can always layer more clothing. If it's too hot you can only take off so much, and if you're still too warm, you can only suffer.

    I love snow. In the Greater Cleveland Area, every winter people act as if they've never seen snow before. I've begun to sarcastically reassure these people that they'll get used to it after they've lived here a couple years. When they tell me they grew up here, I then ask why the hell they are freaking out. (I grew up here too.)

    It was that way when I lived in Park City, Ut. The last winter I was there it hit -66F and when I moved away there was still over 4 feet of snow in my front yard in early July.

    I read somewhere that the US Midwest has some of the largest temperature spans anywhere on the planet. With possible -30*F or even -40*F it it's really freaking cold, and more than +100*F in the summer with sticky humidity, the span can be as wide as 145 degrees F. That's 80 degrees C to all you civilized people.

    True! I'm living the dream in Missouri...

    The really fun thing is, that it was 70 F on Wednesday, and Thursday night it was 9F. Friday, the high was 21F.
