We live in western North Carolina. It gets pretty cold here in my opinion, under 20F sometimes. I'm from California so anything under 68F is freezing to me. The girls seem to do ok, they aren't too fond of the snow though.

LOL sometimes I dont know how I survive on those really cold days hahaha but I think if the animal is born and raised here it makes it alot easier vs if I were to adopt from Florida the dog would probably freeze lol and if I came to Florida I would probably complain the whole time about how hot it is as I cannot stand when it gets hotter than +20c/68f lol which is probably cold to you :)

Well I was born in Alberta "where I live now" I was raised in Vancouver BC where it only really rains and does not really ever get colder than -5c/
23f so it is much warmer there but alot wetter so it did take me quite awhile to get used to the cold weather here again most people here are wearing shorts again by the time it is -5/ 23f lol I also lived in Windsor Ontario it is MUCH hotter there I could barely stand it as the humidity was almost 100% and it didn't go lower than +30c/ 86f which was soooo hot for me again that is probably a colder day for you we are planning to take a trip to the grand canyon in summer I dont know what I am going to do.

Originally from Idaho where we got below zero frequently, transplanted to South East Texas where the high this week is 85F and it only goes up from there, sometimes 110F+ etc. in the late summer.

It is miserable in summer. A/C becomes a life necessity. It's only February and we're already frantic because our air conditioner is acting up if that describes it.

Primarily just the humidity that makes it so unbearable. Living near the water, but not on the water, is for the birds.

Yeah, the southern humidity is a killer. You can cut the air with a knife. It was the weirdest thing when I first moved here. I much prefer the dry desert heat. Thanks god for AC!

I'm from Northern California. San Jose to be specific. Right now it's freezing. I think it's about 33° currently. We've actually had snow on the mountain tops! I love the snow!! It's definitely been a colder than normal winter here. Surrounding cities getting snow that would normally never get it. San Fransisco had some light snow. :)
Our summers range anywhere from the 70's to triple digits.

I'm from Bakersfield in middle California. It get's over 100 degrees in the summer here, but it is a dry heat. I was born in Ohio right near Lake Erie, so I know what you mean about humidity.
