San Diego, on the other hand, is nearly always great weather. I used to live there for weeks at a time, on the beach, and it's rarely unbearably hot, and even when it is, the sea breeze kicks in in the early evening, which feels amazing.
I don't know where Regis lives in FL, but it's generally a cesspool, both in terms of weather and, well, everything else.
My wife grew up in the south. I had to go to Nashville, TN, in June, and I'm telling you, that's the object in my "I will do anything for love, but I won't do that." I should have known, since I was made to go there, again during a heatwave, to an outdoor late afternoon wedding for her cousin. I am pretty sure that the bride, or maybe the groom, just hate people and life in general. I used to have to cut weight to fight, and I think that I lost more water during that wedding than I have wearing a garbage bag, running on a treadmill. She also grew up in Arkansas, which is a complete dump, oh, and hot and full of rednecks. And Houston. Oh man. I was forced to go to a wedding in Houston. I don't believe that that suit has ever really recovered. Turns out, there is no such thing as tropical wool. There are no sheep in the tropics. Think about it.
Of course, I grew up in Canada, and if it got above 80, we thought that we might die. No, my favorite seasons are spring, when the birds start to sing, and fall, which, imo, is thinking man's weather. And winter? I'll take snow and ice over death by boiling inside any day.
