    What kind of poll is this? Choices are too limited. I'd have chosen "are set far too HIGH in the summer in the US." But there's no such choice.

    I hope you don't keep the wine at 82, lol

    Oenophobes that Mrs. Vintage Gent and I are, this is, regrettably, not much of a concern. Thank goodness scotch, cognac, bourbon and gin are unaffected by the heat.

    i find that it is all over the place

    in florida though it seems as if every building is nice and cool, comfortably cool


    up here in canada, it seems there isnt adequate ac in the summer, and in the winter the heat is blasted way too extremely. going from -30 to 40 degrees celcius sucks

    i shouldnt be sweating in the winter

    My thermostats are generally set to 55-65 degrees in the winter. I don't have AC, so in the summer, the heat gets up into the low to mid 80's, but I generally keep a couple windows open so I don't bake to death.

    How hot can it get in Seattle? And how many 80s degree days? 4 or 5?

    No it typically gets up to the high 70's or low 80's in the summer time. Last summer was unusually hot, and I believe we had a week or two of 90 degree days last year. Being on the top floor of my building though makes things quite a bit hotter in the summer. According to my thermostat my condo is currently 81.3 degrees at 11:31pm. It really bothers me at night and makes it very difficult for me to rest. I sometimes wish I had AC so that I could sleep.

    I realize the results might be off given the fact that most of you are gentlemen wearing coats in the office, but I'll try anyway.


    Is their anything about the US that you do like?

    The humidity is probably what makes things bad, not the temperature alone. Gets to well over 100 in this area but the humidity is often absurdly low - which makes me dislike the constant A/C even more.

    In most offices, I usually find the men stripping as much clothes as they can without offending anyone while the ladies usually have all their space heaters turned on, often times causing the local circuit to overload.

    I think in a democracy one should be able to use their, there, they're, and kungawamba interchangably. It is a basic right. Just like opening a keylock line of credit on your house to pay off 0%-interest-for-a-year credit cards is a right and driving huge cars off into the desert is a right.[​IMG]

    I usually prefer temperatures to be cooler than they are. My wife has low blood pressure, and she's always cranking the heat. Not a happy setup.
