No arguments here, Sauce. My father was in the Air Force at the time, and asked to be assigned somewhere out West (he loves the landscapes of the Western states, has traveled all over). So they stuck him in Minot, North Dakota. Not exactly what he had in mind.
He told me that on the first day of spring (which up there qualifies as "the first day on which the temperature is above freezing"), everyone broke out their shorts to wash their cars.
Then again, I hate the heat, humidity, and sudden violent rainstorms as much as you do. I need to find a good middle ground.
