I'll take hot weather any day over that cold crap.  I can work around the heat, taking a break in the mid afternoon helps. When it gets really cold here, like 40F or so I freeze, noting I do can make it warm enough to be comfortable working out in it.  The humidity year around is what hurts. 104f aint too bad 104 and 90% humidity sucks. same in winter, calm 40f aint bad,40f north wind blowing 20mph and 80% humidity and its miserable.

We get snow @ every 10yrs or so. the whole town just shuts down. 2 in snow will close schools for 3 days. :o

Bring on summertime.

Hahahahaha. 2" of snow.

I remember reading an article last year of a southern city "bracing" for snow in the forecast. It was like watching a hurricane coming. Don't get me wrong, I'm not acting all high and mighty. Things that are unusual, are just that - Unusual. We had a foot of snow on the ground with another 8" coming at that point. That previous day on the way to work I was having fun fishtailing around corners in my truck - traction control switched off.

I may regret the 20' x 32' basement shop when the time comes to move but in the mean time it's purdy darn nice down here all year long.  68-70 deg constant and no humidity.   No rust on the machines and I'm comfy and can work any time of day or night even if only for 5 minutes.   Trade off is welding is limited to TIG and the initial PITA of getting the machines down.   
Probably the best thing I ever did (besides marrying my bride in case she reads this) that enabled this option was to put a concrete stairwell access from the garage down to basement. 
A 1 ton HF gantry facilitated getting a BP, Tormach 1100, Lathe, Surface grinder, saw etc down solo without help.   Reverse process will blow but for now it rocks!

Slipknot, you are welcome to come to beautiful Nevada. A good time of year to visit is in the winter and the temps shouldn't get much lower than 8-10 below zero. Right now it is 91 degrees with 19% humidity.

I will admit that I don't care for it either when it's -25 F and I'm trying to get an excavator running, but 90 F with 90% humidity just about pushes me over the brink.

I've got family in western Colorado, and I can honestly say that visiting them is always a treat. It can be 100 + but with no humidity it isn't bad at all. You just have to remember to drink plenty of water. I might have to think about retiring there, summers are not too bad and winters are not nearly as cold as here in Minnesnowta.

I enjoy the cold as well as long as I can stay out of the wind. The 6 years I spent in Louisiana where some of the worst, its so hot down there even the crime rate drops in the heat of the day!!

The problem I have with working in the shop in the winter is no heat, it got so cold last winter I was having issues with the slides on my tool box and some of my ratchets where sticking.

I use a torpedo heater with K-1 in the winter, it works great!
You boys better hold on cause i'm gonna have to stand on it!

We were supposed to hit 100 today. But we are getting smoked out by the fire near Yosemite in CA and visibility is just over a mile. So the current temp is 96 with 10% humidity.

Ya the smoke here has been terrible from several fires lately , my eyes have been burning when Im outside, but the smoke at least keeps the temperature down a few degrees.
