Hot and Cold

I notice that whenever it is summer, people complain about the heat, but whenever it is winter, people complain about the cold. 

It seems that people are never satisfied. 

I don't like the winter. 

It is usually much too cold for me. 

teeth chatter, and fingers turn numb whenever the weather gets cold. 

It is hard for me to warm up once I start to freeze. 

I try to wear layers of clothes, but winter winds go through clothes no matter how much I wear. 

feet feel like they are blocks of ice on a cold January day when I walk home from school. 

I would not like to live in a place that had a cold climate all year long. 

I am not comfortable when it is too cold. 

I like the summer. 

Some people say that it is hot and sticky in the summer, but I don't mind the heat at all. 

I love to feel the warm sunshine on skin. 

I like the freedom of not having to wear heavy coats and boots. 

I am the happiest when there is a slightly cool breeze that comes along to refresh you on a hot summer day. 

I could live in a place with a hot climate. 

I would enjoy that. 

Of course, when you are in a place with a hot climate there are more bugs than in places with cooler climates. 

I don't care for bugs. 

Where I live, it is very humid. 

The heat and moisture combine to make it uncomfortable sometimes. 

It is nicer when the heat is high, but the humidity is low. 

It would be better if I lived somewhere where it was hot, but not humid. 

That would be just perfect.
