    Mine is 50 degrees to say about 70 degrees.

    Anything over 80 and I start moving very slowly and sweat too easily.

    My theory is this: Cooler weather is better because you can always put more clothes on, but when it's hot you can only take so many off. It's also easier to find a heat source than a cold source.

    What's yours?

    I like anything from 70-80. That is ideal for me. I can take 80-90 if there is a breeze blowing and just not hot air sitting on ya all day.

    I perfer cold. But usually when it's cold you get rain, wind and just bad weather here. I want to be able to enjoy outside and not stay in if it's cold. If it would be calm and clear when cold, then bring it on!

    I remember the summer I spent up in the Spokane area. I remember when it hit 90 and people were freaking out saying it was a heat wave and way too hot. Made me laugh because that's not even really hot unless you are out working in it.

    Cold enough to the point that everyone is wearing jackets except me. Then raise it 5 degrees.

    I remeber senior trip, standing around in a t shirt and jeans at the bottom of the hill daydreaming with all these fancy day glow fags kept staring at me

    I like it about 90, anything under 75 and I get cold. I don't start to sweat until around 95 on a humid day. Yes, I know, I'm a little /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    70 degrees!? Brrrr! I like it 95-110. The hotter the better! I like it warm since you don't have to wear as many clothes...and it's easier to manipulate wrenches and stuff...

    Since everyone stated in fahrenheit, I will just explain how I like it. I like it when your outside you can wear shorts and a t-shirt, and not be sweating or not be to cold. Kind of the temperature at night here /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
