Would You Rather be too hot or too cold

Would you rather have it be too hot or too cold outside? I would rather have it be too cold because you can dress warmly. You can wear layers and you won't be AS cold. But if it is really hot out, you could be naked and you would still be really hot and uncomfortable.

This is hard for me to answer. I do not do well in heat if it is humid heat as I have asmtha. I also do not do well with cold as I have asmtha and also arthritis. I can handle heat better than cold but guess I would prefer cold if I had not have arthritis.

I would rather it be too hot. Man, we went to a HIghland Games today and got every weather. It was warm enough for shirt sleeves, then rain threatened. It finally came, and before we had out St Anthony's on, it was hailing! My pants got soaked, I had hale in my shoes, and I am still freezing!

Being warm is the way I like it and is a great way to feel. Having to put on many layers of clothing to keep from being cold is cumbersome feeling to be in. so the hot summer months is always good to look out for. Have a nice day from Deeeky.

Although I get cold easily...I also get very hot easily. I would rather be cold than hot!!! Definitely!!! I can not hand heat that well. When I get hot, I get sick. I get to the point that I am passing out or vomiting when I get too hot. I have been out on many of days with others that it did not bother them to the point that it bothered me. I think it is because I do not sweat that well. Because sweating cools the body off. However, the cold also triggers a horrible migraine. But I am used to those by now. ha ha So, I would choose cold instead of hot. At least with the cold, I could put on many layers to find a way to get warm. But with heat...you can only take so much off.

I would much rather be too cold than too warm. Like you say, I can wear extra clothes and I can move and take exercise. At the moment, our weather is unusually warm for this time of year and I am finding it difficult to sleep at night. This is only Spring and I believe that we are in for a long hot Summer so I will have to make sure I am well prepared for the heatwave.

I would much rather be too cold outside. You can always dress with layers of clothing and get warmer. You can also move around to keep your body temperature warmer. If it is hot outside, it is much harder to try and cool off. Like you said, you can strip down naked and still be very hot and sweating. You may be bale to use a water hose but it is still hot outside and you will be soaking wet afterwards.

I can deal with hot much better than cold. I HATE to be really cold.

Neither is really a good scenario for me, but I probably tolerate the cold better than the heat. At least you can layer your clothing in the cold weather to keep warm. There's not too much you can do to get cool in extreme heat other than try to get near air conditioning.
