Hot Weather w/no Clothes

I like summer – what season do you like?

I currently live in the southern United States and soon will be moving to another state in the southern United States.

As you may know, my husband and I are planning a move this year to another location to start the next chapter in our lives.  In the near future I will reveal to you where I am currently living and where I am moving to.  I like warm weather, no let me rephrase that; I love hot weather.  I am not a cold weather person, and for you folks that live in a colder climate in the winter, I praise you – I would not be able to do it.  For me, the hotter the better; 100+ temperatures I can deal with!

My current location temperature from November – March averages 45 to 68 degrees.  The next location temperature from November – March averages 52 – 72 degrees.  Yes, I realize there is not much difference in these averages, but the current location receives more ‘cold fronts’ than the next location.

Okay, let me do some whining here.  When the temperatures fall in the 40s, my feet get cold.  I do not like cold feet.  Yes, I could wear 2 pairs of socks, which I have – but I do not want to.  You see I am that person who likes to wear the least amount of clothes as possible.  I really do not like to wear clothes; less is better for me.  When it is hot, I can strip the clothes off, but when it is cold, I dislike putting more clothes on.

As I started writing the post about liking warm weather and then moving on to clothes it got me thinking about the evolution of clothes.  You are welcome to read an interesting article from the website titled ‘When People Started Wearing Clothes’.

Another interesting article titled ‘Why Do People Wear Clothes’ from includes the following reasons we wear clothes –

To Cover Parts of Our Body (Yes, I understand the reason for wanting to cover parts of our bodies, but then again some clothing people wear today does not leave much for the imagination)

To Appear Beautiful (Yes, I understand the reason for wanting to look beautiful, but this is the least important thing I am concerned about)

To Make Identification Easier (Yes, I understand the reason for identification; police officers, firemen, doctors – this is all good)

For Protection (Yes, I understand the reason for protection from the cold, then again I hate cold, so this reason is unimportant to me, I want warm weather)

For Special Days and Events (Yes, I understand the reason for special days & events, but I usually do not ‘dress up’ for these occasions – that’s me – sorry folks)

  1. Definitely summer. I live for summer and high temperatures. I recently found a great sale on double-warm hiking socks, bought six pair, and have worn them constantly this winter. I live in a part of Colorado that provides a decent mix of weather, yet still not enough summer, but I’m able to avoid the humidity of the south.

    • I visited Colorado years ago and enjoyed the weather there – that was in the warmer months – not sure if I could handle the winter there. I am use to some humidity and the next location where we are moving to the humidity will be higher – I will become use to it also. Thanks Joyce for reading and commenting – I hope your weekend is wonderful! 🙂

  2. Spring. If it were eternally Spring, I’d never complain (until I got bored with it of course). I’m not a fan of hot temperatures (over 75 is too warm for me personally), but I’m not a fan of cold temperatures either (this last winter here with some days being in the minus (-2 or 5 at night) were too damn cold. Spring is moderate. It’s hopeful. You get to see the world renew before your eyes…what’s not to love?

  3. Hot, glorious, steamy southern summers – we are soulmates! I am always cold (low blood pressure) and the heating/air con is on at 78 winter and summer. I usually go for my 3 mile walk at about 3 pm in the height of summer – 100 degrees with 98 humidity and I love it. It helps that I live in a forest so there is always an element of shade. Methinks you are moving closer to me… 🙂

  4. I’m English and we are hardwired to a fixation on weather. We also have seasons and much as I LOVE hot, I need the changes – restless spirit maybe. So for me, my home in France has it sewn up – I get cold snowy winters and hot hot summers (last year we were over 100 degrees for much of the time and up to 113 at one point which was a tad excessive) – that is unusual … it is more likely to be 78-90 in summer. Here in New England it’s much the same – cold winter-hot summer. The interesting thing to me is how restless I get at the change of the seasons …. so now I am willing Spring (which I am told is normally very short here) and the joys of summer to unfurl.

    • Yes, I am always ready for spring, then I know summer is next. I use to be okay with the changing of the seasons, but honestly I can do summer all year around. Thanks Osyth, hope the day is going well for you! 🙂

    • Thanks Stephanae – I could not live in Pittsburgh, I would be in a bad mood all the time dealing with that cold. Humidity does not bother me, I don’t mind sweating as long as I have some water to jump into. Have a great weekend. 🙂

  5. Lovely post as always Terry. I live in Natal, South Africa, where even our winters are considered not cold. Summers are hot with humidity. I like the warmer weather. Summer is my best. I too, don’t like my feet to be cold, I am such a baby, I will sleep with socks on if I have to 🙂 Hope you are having a great weekend 🙂

  6. I currently live in the Denver metro area and I love the changing of the seasons, but I think Fall is probably my favorite. I love the holiday season and I also love wearing jeans and a t-shirt and fall is the perfect weather for just that. A few years ago we had had enough of the snow and cold and we moved to Phoenix, AZ and, while we enjoyed never scraping our windows or having cold toes, we both missed the seasons enough to eventually head back home…

    • Fall is nice because of the crispness in the air and yes I agree about the holiday season, there has to be some colder weather to get into the mood of it. Thanks, I appreciate your comment – have a great weekend. 🙂


  7. Autumn is easily my favorite ~ a bit of everything, the fall always feels like a great big sigh after a great spring/summer, and I enjoy the months outside. While I too like warm weather, there is nothing quite as nice as cold nights… 🙂

    • It is those cold nights that I do not get into. I like to spend as much time outside as possible, including the nights. Thanks for stopping by to read and comment, I hope your day is going well for you. 🙂


  8. For someone who appreciates every degree in spring, 52-72 is a big jump! But please tell me you think that naked and surviving show, whatever it’s called, is ridiculous!! Because what real survivalist -with bugs and parasites looming- is going to subject themselves to that if they don’t have to?
