I love the sun and warmth and I'm happiest or feel more motivated under those conditions ... What about you? Since I have lived in many different places I have realized how weather is not consistant but some places the weather is far more friendly than other places ... I know no place is perfect but extreme cold and rain really gets me down ... How bout you?

I like rainy weather, but not heavy raining because I don't like hot weather, sunny weather is quite good but without humidity or with mild temperature. I live in Middle east county and the weather here very beautiful, but because of a reasoned I don't know there is mad weather, you can see different seasons in the same day. I don't know what happen why these changes happened and these changes make me mad all the time. I’m confused what to wear, is it going to rain or to be hot, that is the questions that I ask myself every day. I hope it will be like past times again.

Yes it does. I hate the rain when it just never seems to stop. I look forward to nice spring weather. I am picky though. I don't like it when it is too hot or too cold. I guess I am hard to please. But nice weather picks my spirits up. When it is cold I just feel like hibernating and don't go out much. When it starts to get nice I feel like cleaning up after the crappy winter weather. Like go through old clothes, wash windows and do spring cleaning.

I have lived all over, from cold northern climates, to the relentless heat and humidity of south central Texas, to tropical islands. When all is said and done, I feel best in cool climates. Not cold, cool. And I actually like a fair share of gray days and rain-- not only because it keeps the world around me green-- but because the light is soft and gentle. That was one of the things about living in the south-- the sun hurt my eyes, and my skin is sensitive enough that I would burn after 20 minutes. I like where I am now, in Western Washington state... I very specifically chose to come here because the climate "fits" me. Actually, even though most people think of the northwest as eternally rainy, I live in the "banana belt" where it only rains about 18 inches a year, and there are 200+ sunny days-- Port Townsend is in the rain shadow of the Olympic mountain range. So yes, weather affects my mood. I feel depressed and lethargic when it's too hot and humid. I am envigorated when it's cool. My parents loved tropical islands; I just wanted to sleep in a darkened room, most of the time.
