    Much the same over here in Auckland. It was about 9 degrees (44 degrees Fahrenheit) today for the high. Wish I could home to someone to snuggle up to in this cold weather...

    I live on the Gulf Coast. It's hot and humid here all the time. Summers get up to 35-40, winter almost never goes below 0. Torrential rains when it does rain. But SO much to see and do...and Houston is a surprisingly liberal city. Does YOUR city have an out and proud lesbian as its mayor?

    NC is an even clash of conservatives and liberals, yuppies and hillbillies. It's separated into 3 regions, the mountains, the hills, and the coast. It's a primary center for research and education and also has a small film industry. The weather is moderate and generally nice, not getting too hot or too cold too much. It's not a good place for singles, gay marriage is banned, and currently conservatives have taken control of our government. It's rained for the past two weeks at some point and time during the day.

    I thought Tassie had a great gay population going on? I know of the 'League of gentlemen', and my lezzy's tell me there are loads of groups around. But most are outdoorsy types of things. or at least involve fitness and healthy living. Maybe check some of them out.

    Im from perth on the move to a warmer place probably Byron, just depends where my next job is

    You can hate it all you like but only when you change what's going on internally will you change your life. There are heaps of self hating guys in Sydney and Melbourne too. make the most of it while you have to

    Minneapolis, Minnesota!

    Mild summers, long ass winter, but totally the perfect place with it's healthy lifestyle. The Twin Cities spends more money per capita on recreation than any other metropolitan in the US. That means we have trails, parks, lakes, and bikeways galore! The area is the most inclusive, tolerant population I know. And there is a large, stable GLBT population contributing to an accepting, diverse urban scene like no other.

    Please ignore that Michele Bachmann and Jesse Ventura are from here. I never said we were perfect! Just pert near darn close.

    Well let's start with climate: Long winter, interrupted by warm dry winds (Chinooks) that come down over the Rocky Mountains from British Columbia and the snow just evaporates. So it'll be -15 one day and +5 the next. Rain and wet snow in spring. Very rainy June. Dry and warm July and August. Mix of summer and winter in Autumn. High altitude so the difference between day and night can be large.
    We just had a big flood.
    Monday was 35 degrees (from the heatwave in the American SW) and humid, and now it's about 18.
    Soon we'll be having our Stampede. Parade's tomorrow. Lot's of rodeo events, rides, music, etc.
    For some reason our Pride is near Labour Day. Our city's mayor was the Pride Parade Marshal last year.

    Upstate New York: Winter- November through April, dark with lots of rain and snow. Spring was on a Tuesday this year. Summers can be either hot and dry, hot and wet, or cold and wet. So far this year it's hot and wet. Fall can be very pleasant-sometimes.

    I'm seriously considering a move south....

    I live in Lincolnshire, on the east coast of the UK. It has a dry climate, with cold winters and mild/warm summers. Long nights in winter. The region hereabouts is the Fens, as low lying as the Netherlands; all drained and banked up from the sea in the last four centuries. To the north and west are the Wolds, low hills rising to a few hundred feet above sea level.

    The main industries are farming and tourism. The land here is as good as anywhere in the world for growing crops. Along the coast is a traditional seaside holiday industry. Also, the county has a deep history going back to the Romans and beyond. A spectacular cathedral at Lincoln, etc. Very conservative, culturally and politically. A minimal gay scene.

    Rainy Netherlands. Weather is same around most of the country given the size of the country.
    Summer is yet to arrive. Generally summer is supposed to be nice with temperature in 20s (degree celcius) but this year has been the worst. Winter is horrible due to the deadly combination of wind, rain and temperature mostly around zero degree. Cloudy sky is the norm.

    I live in Orange County, close to L.A. OC shares the same hot climate. It's about 80F today, it's kind of nice to just go to the beach, hang out, wear your short, tank top and flip flop!! icon_cool.gif

    well when i was a kid we had winter spring summer fall, over the course of the year. Snow in winter, hot humid in the summer kinda averaging -5 to 25 with a few days of +-30C thown in.

    Mother nature now seems to have lost her mind and we get the same weather but the month is random in which it comes.

    you can wear a parka and take shorts for later the same day.

    ---

    As far as what to see...there is a black hole of 3 million people an hour away that sucks up all the culture centres leaving everything on either side just bedroom communities, but Waterloo, where they make blackberries phones, is a strange mix of Amish luddites and High tech computer people. Everyone over 50 is german and everyone under 25 is asian due to the 2 universities.

    Rock concerts sell out 500 tickets in a week, lectures on quantum physics sell out in .1 seconds (really it is weird, perimeter institute does lectures every couple months and tickets go on sale at 9am and are sold out if you press enter a fraction of a second later - crazy) Other than that it is flat, green, boring, and safe.
