They used to bother me terribly.

Last year I kept telling myself, "I do not mind hot days".

I don't like the cold and kept thinking of the cold, and in the end I did not mind the hot days.

Pleased to say I still do not mind them anymore whereas before last year I really hated them.

Now i know they are part of life, and no point whingeing or telling myself how hot I am.

I always have air conditioning when home anyway.

However, hot days no longer stop me going anywhere I would normally go, even though they used to.

I'm not crazy about hot weather, but having lived most of my life in Queensland I'm pretty used to it. We have aircon but I don't use it much (I think we've turned it twice since we moved here) because you have to keep all the internal doors shut for it to work, which the kids won't, and it's kind of a waste of energy. We just keep our doors and windows open for the breeze, which we usually get plenty of living high up.
I came to North Queensland to escape the shocking cold winds which bite right through you know matter what clothes you wear. I must say that the heat itself is not a drama for me.But during our summer Wet Seasons it is the HUMiDITY which is a real drain!! I would still not live anywhere else though as I have air conditioning which is more than adequate for my needs.M home is extremely well insulated so once I have cooled the house during the day when I feel the heat the most,,it stays cool all night long!! I really do love this region and cannot imagine living back in the south of Victoria. The dry summer top temps down there actually are much higher than what I get up here as a rule, And lets face it,my ferns and orchids which play home to the green tree frogs are simply delightful
Very hot days bother me a lot. I feel knocked out whenever the room is extremely hot.
Me too! I feel like I'm just existing, feeling so sluggish and unable to go about my day as I usually would.

Me too. I cannot handle the humidity. I not only seem to have zero energy, but it turns me off eating as well. We have evaporative cooling throughout the house and on those really hot Melbourne days that WERE so dry, I loved the evap. cooling with all the windows and doors open it was magic. But now summers in Melbourne seem to come with a lot of humidity and then the only answer is refrigerated air conditioning which I hate because of the need to shut the doors and windows and if the heat lasts more than a couple of days I find the house to lack any fresh air. Certainly the weather has changed in my opinion, in Melbourne, from the blistering heat and the dry north winds I used to know.

Hot days don't bother me at all - I really enjoy seeing sunshine!

They bother me a LOT! I live in Cairns and it has been so awfully hot lately I feel like I'm melting. Spending all my time in air con!
Oh see, I feel guilty when I turn on the aircon. It makes me feel as though I am contributing to the enhanced greenhouse effect. We turn it on sparingly and only if temps reach high thirties.
by Vee
I feel the same Vee, I hate using the air con!
I hate using it but I really can't cope with the heat! I do try to make up for it though by running everything else as little as possible and turning things off at the powerpoint and other environmentally friendly things.

For me, it depends on whether I am somewhere where they are used to coping with high temperatures. So in Singapore, the heat didn't bother me at all as they had designed buildings and lifestyle to take the heat into account. In fact, I had the opposite problem - people used to turn their air con on too low for my liking, so I ended up having to wear extra layers inside to keep warm!
However, when we have unusually hot weather here in Europe, on the whole our buildings are not designed for it, not many people have air con and it can all get too much. I ended up sitting in my cellar one heatwave in Brussels as apart from lying in a tepid bath, it was the only way to keep myself from overheating!
Since moving to antarctica they do, yes. If it goes above 25 I start to melt.
Trying to work out the pic Finy.....what on earth is it, ice maybe....anyway...no I don't like the very hot weather but prefer it to very cold, am a Summer girl, feel healthier, one can get outside more and...the washing dries very quickly...lovely

Candles
See those candles - that's me. Plus I go bright red and sometimes I swear I smell like I'm cooking.
I really really can not handle the heat.

We have Air-Con, as we live in a mobile home...and because they don't have the same insulation as a normal home, your have to use your Air-Con.

It is on in summer about 10-12 hrs a day, and if not then the temp gets ridiculous!

The word ''miserable'' comes to mind if I get overheated .... oh! and grumpy :(
Yes. I don't like summer.

Not any more the answer to a hot day is Insulpaint. A roof paint that stops the heat getting in so the house, factory or caravan stays cool. Prevention is better than cure look it up on the web Gerrard.
That accompanying picture had me in stitches! The candles look rather, er, flaccid?
But seriously, I love candles burning, very relaxing.
Oh! & the question, yes, doesn't bother me as have aircon. Being in sub-tropics, it's a necessity of life, not a luxury!
Yes, I don't like high temperature weather, (somehow I can relate to the candle pictures on the left - that's me on a hot day!)
i like the surmmer but i can't not sand the heat they make me sick
Oh! Betty, you need thongs to walk on hot sand...................

Yes hot days do bother me, I mean days of 40 degrees and over, especially if the evening has been hot as well, I put on the air con and we get too cold, we switch it off then after a while it gets too hot especially with a double brick home, it takes longer to cool.
I hate the heat with a vengence. Thank goodness Autumn has started 📉
I don't mind the hot weather, as long as there is somewhere cool for me whether it is under a tree or inside, but the humidity doesn't bring out the best in me, I feel tired and sluggish especially if I'm at work and customer's want a hot coffee!
