Definitely cool. Anything warmer than 75° F is unbearable. Around 68° F is ideal, but freezing is better than melting.

I prefer the cold weather. Hot weather makes me feel sticky and gross. It creates this massive sensory issue for me.

Talk about bringing a topic back from the dead. I will have posted in this back when it was originally posted in 2007. But, to repeat, I hate, hate, hate being cold. It is the worst for me. Granted, I do not like either extreme of temperature, but being cold is the worst for me. I also hate the feel of rain on my skin, especially that sort of sharp feeling rain. But I love listening to a storm or heavy rain when I am safe indoors. It is somehow comforting.

Also. This thread makes me wonder what became of 0 equals true and all the other old regulars I used to know here. :(

Hot summers, mild winters with plenty of rain, and a long spring. No snow, ever.

Don't care.

I'm used to hot due to where I was born and live, but the cold doesn't bother me either (I'm probably made for the cold).

I hate cold & hot weather but I'd pick cool over warm.

I prefer warm weather (but not hot) because it is easier to dress for it. And because inside temperatures are more consistent with outdoors.

In cold weather I have to put on more clothes which agitates my sensory problems with clothes. Then if I go indoors at a place where the heat is on, I feel like I am suffocating and have to take layers of clothes off, but I am stuck with my socks and boots.

What I hate about winter is having to go back and forth from cold outside and places that are hot and stuffy inside. I hate it when people turn the heat up high. I keep my house around 60-65 F in winter. On the plus side it is obviously easier to keep the house cool in winter, and I sleep much better when it is cool.

Cool weather. But there are a lot of students from India where I live, and if today's weather was freezing for me, imagine what it must be like for them. :(

Neither. Complaining about the cold has never made it warmer.

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter.
If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life.

Warm weather means cheaper oil bills. I've not needed the A/C in the past two years.

Definitely cool. Around 5 degrees at night and 16 degrees during the day, as in La Paz, would be perfect for me.

I also like very dry weather. I can't stand the humidity.
