Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Who needs summer? I do most of that stuff all year long. Arizona rocks!

Ah, the joys of living in New Orleans. I grill, wear sandals, open the windows and drop the top all 365 days and no one gives a crap about any sport that doesn't involve the Saints...now schoolwork is a different story.

Ummm...do you even LIVE in Arizona? I do, and summer SUCKS. You can't do squat when it's 110+ outside buddy. It doesn't help that summer lasts 7.5 months. And yeah, I was born and raised here. I hate this stupid state.

None of the above. The only thing I like about summer is the long days. Around here, it's fire season and we usually end up having to keep the windows closed to avoid the smoke.

Exactly. Electric rates go up so high in the summer I can't even afford to run my central A/C in the summer. So I have to stay in the bedroom, with the small portable unit. I can't even stand to cook in the summer.

Not looking forward to summer. Period.

Can't wait to get out of AZ. Period.

I live for spring and summer gardening. Nothing, save my kids, brings more life to me than getting my hands dirty and watching veggies grow.

Here in the SE we never even had any winter this year. It was just a slow merge of fall to spring without any snow. Been in the low 80's for the past week so it seems summer is here. And the community pool doesn't open till the end of May, looks like a lot of trips to the river to keep the kids cooled off.
And they keep saying global warming is a myth, you want to tell me where so we can go cool off?

Definitely grill. And open the windows. And everything else! Hailing from the northeast, summer is such a blessing after a long, hard winter.......except when you have a winter such as we just had, with a grand total of one foot of snow for the entire four month period. o.O Saw a guy raking his lawn just before Christmas. Crazy.

Agreed. It gives me such a thrill -- peas are out of the ground, cabbage & broccoli are going strong, planted carrots, spinach and lettuce Sunday, and I have probably 30 more seed packets just begging to be planted! Yay spring! Summer is less exciting, as it means primarily battling weeds.

Exactly. And you know when summer rolls around it's going to be HOOOOOOT! I feel bad for the band kids at my old high school who are going to have to march in that heat come July D;

Where is the other option? I was thinking see Hot Women in Bikinis but that is just me.

I live on the Gulf Coast and we've been dropping the top on the convertible, wearing sandals, grilling out, and opening the windows since late January. Once summer rolls around, it'll be too unbearable to have the windows open, stand next to a grill, or sit at a red light in a convertible.

I'm in South Florida. I wear sandals all year round, convertibles suck in the heat and the rain, I wouldn't open a window in 90 degree 90% humidity summer weather, and I can grill any time I want to. Baseball, I can live without, and I'm a long time out of school.

I've done all of those things that past winter. All I have to look forward to this summer is sweating my nuts off.

I live in Florida. I do all this stuff 365 days a year.

Except the windows. It's reversed from what the rest of you guys do. Sealed up tight in the summer and open during the coldest days.

Actually, I hate summer. I can't stand sweating, heat, wasps, mosquitoes, hornets, and sunburn. Give me crunchy colorful leaves and beautiful fluffy snow any day!

I'm not in school and I don't like baseball, but I've been doing all of that all winter long here in Pennsylvania, even occasionally opening windows when days were warm enough.

Top down in my Saab on a cold dry day is beautiful. I even ride my motorcycle in winter.

I'm in with all the previous "one day closer to winter again" voters. Fall and winter are both preferable. 45-60 deg F and cloudy is my perfect day.

I live in Wisconsin and we've been having summer-like weather since last week. Absolutely beautiful out and in the 70's...even hit 80 a few days. Definitely not normal weather for March though.

Last summer, we had nearly 40 straight days over 100 here in Houston. The water in the swimming pools was about 92, like taking a warm bath, which is not refreshing in the heat. I live for our 2-3 weeks of spring, and our 3 months of fall/Indian Summer.

If you live in Arizona, you're not excited for Summer to come. To enjoy that kind of heat one may think you are of kin to Satan. Northern parts of the state are sometimes ok.

I live south of Tucson. Yes the summers are well over 100 for months at a time. But, if you don't love the heat, why do you still live here? The summers are the best part of Arizona. In the winter, you have to contend with all those people from the north and east. Fortuanately, they pay for everything. By May, it is too hot for them and the golf courses clear out.
I always tell people who (constantly) complain about the weather here to move to Michigan. Then you will only have to complain a couple of months a year.

Wearing SHORTS. Hell, GOING NAKED without my junk freezing.

I grew up in Florida and we did all this year round. The best thing about summer is seeing the ladies half naked. Well, at least a small portion these days. We americans are too dam FAT!
