F*ck you.. I have no AC. Long story. I'm sweating like a hog. I can't even get this window air installed right. I do not have 6k for a new HVAC. I'm really ****ed up. Let the good times roll

Once I start thinking, "Hmm, it's getting awfully hot in here," and I check the thermostat to have it say 84. I turn it on and keep it at 75.

There's about a two to four day window when the heat reaches mid to high 80's, so I'll run it a little bit during the evening when I get home from work just to cool the place a little.
But with no humidity whatsoever, no AC required once the sun goes down.
Summer average temps here:

Highs: 76 to 82

Lows: 44 to 58

Never. I don't have AC, nor do I need it where I live (high enough in a mountain valley that it is cool enough I don't need it). I also don't have a furnace. I leave my windows open all year, and get lots of fresh air. It pays to live somewhere nice....:)

The high cost of living is worth it to live in such a beautiful place with the best weather in the world (not to mention the best beaches). While you guys are freezing I'm wearing shorts and flip flops every day of the year. I'll take that over cheap prices any day.

We don't have bears in Hawaii. We have wild pigs, and mongoose. They don't come in, but I can sit in my Lazy Boy and watch the wild pigs on the hill behind my place. Well, I could before the palms grew too big.

Why is weather such a high priority? Are you a landowner growing pineapples? There are lots of places where wearing shorts and flip-flops can be had year-round. There's no such thing as bad weather, just stupid people who buy the wrong clothing. I can wear shorts and flip-flops from now until October in KC. Will I do it? Hell, no. I'm older than 15.

It's more than weather. Beaches. Palm trees. Girls in bikinis. Laid back lifestyle. Friendly people. Parties on the beach (we had a great one Friday night, live music (my band), beautiful sunset, beer, women, everything you need).

Men wear shorts and flips flops here. Even elderly men. Get over it.

Not bad at all. Much better than Missouri, and a hell of a lot better than the south east states like Florida. It is commonly around 60% in the summer. The trade winds blow 90% of the time, keeping us cool. It is rarely over 90 degrees here, usually around 85 in the summer, 80 in the winter, and I think the all time high in Honolulu is 95 degrees. It really is the best weather in the world IMO. Other tropical and semitropical places have much higher humidity. The lows in the winter are usually in the 60s, rarely in the 50s, never lower unless you are at very high altitude.

Sounds like a pretty good setup. Definitely a better winter. Our summers here at 6600ft in Az. can't be beat though. Everyday is like the nicest Spring day back in KC minus the humidity. Monsoons start in late June, early July, but it's no biggie.

I put my window unit in my bedroom yesterday and slept amazing last night. I have a gigantic window unit in the dining room but don't plan on using it.

I'm fine all day sweating until I go to bed...can't sleep when it's hot.

I think my huskies enjoyed the cooler room also. It was 85 in my entire house and probably in the 60's in my bedroom. It's a 5500 btu unit so it's pretty small.
