This is easy for me.

My favorite is October - perfect weather - I just love October.
Second favorite is May - Why May - Well it certaily isn't the Indy 500 LOL, no mainly because of the NBA playoffs. I just love, love the playoffs, and the second round is always my favorite. Two games every night - perfect.

My least favorite is August. I get sick and tired of the hot weather and there is never any NBA news going on - the most boring month of the year. Many of you will pick January or February as least favorite - not me, I don't mind the cold weather and I can't hate a month when the NBA is playing.

I don't really have a favorite, although I guess you can't really beat December. Winter break, Christmas, holiday cheer, snow, what's not to like?

Favorite? October. Birthday, fall weather, football, and the start of basketball season.

Least favorite? Tie: November, January, February, March. Cold, damp, cold, dark, and cold. If it weren't for basketball, I'd be impossible to deal with.

Favorite is May. Least favorite.... hmmmm I don't particularly like Aug, Sept, or October but that is because those months just give so many clues that Nov, Dec, Jan, and Feb are coming.

If March would follow October, I'd be fine with that.

Favorite - November. Just hung over from the sugar rush of Halloween, and preparing for the feast of Thanksgiving.

Least favorite - August. Seriously, what the hell happens in August? School goes back and...that's it. Yuck.

October is my fav- playoff baseball, college, pro and high school football, then you got the leaves changing and such.

The one I like the least has to be December because I hate the commericalism of Christmas and it gets old so fast.

I like the fall months for the holidays/festivities, and of course the start of basketball. August/September kind of suck, though. At least now that I'm into the NFL a bit September is bearable, but NBA-wise it blows.

I like October cause of birthday but my favorite month is June - start of summer - warm weather - hotter girls - and basically an optimism just shinning through for what might be a great summer

least favorite - jan/feb/march...I hate it when the day turns into night at 4pm...totally kills the mood...

I disagree.

There's riot season, wildfire season, mudslide season and of course basketball season.

November 1st through March 1 is perfect in south Florida.

65-75 degrees every day, 55-60 degrees every night, no air conditioning needed, no heat needed, no coats, no sweaters, and no fogged up glasses from the humidity. And also hurricane season is over!

4 months of just perfect weather, though it's a little chilly to jump in the pool.

The worst is about mid June through mid September. 3 months of awful heat (though never above 93 for the past 2 years) and high humidity.

When I lived in Indiana, mid September through October was my favorite.

Least favorite, July/August. I hate being hot.

Indianapolis October averages:

Average Low - 43
Average High - 65
Rainfall - 2.85"/month

Venice Averages for the entire 6 months from October to March:

Average Low - 53
Average High - 65
Rainfall - 2.02" / month

So basically your favorite month lasts for six months straight.

Time to go swimming.

And to the meat of the question, my most hated month in the entire calendar is December.

The shortest daylight, the in-your-face consumerism, the Football mania (I don't mind the game, but the fans drive me bonkers), the brat kids getting anything they ask for and the never ending satanic (I mean Santa) MUSIC!

AAAAAAAAaHHHHH! :banghead:

I really feel strongly about this. :)

Do you guys only have 15 hours of daylight in December? Must be tough.

Actually, the equinox happens on the same day and the days are *maybe* an hour longer here than in Boston. We get the same six months where the days are shorter than the nights that everyone else gets. We just have a giant ocean keeping the air from getting too cold.

I agree except it's also one of my hated months. It's usually nine months after the first cold snap which means it's way too busy at work.

Tie between October & November. Mainly because in upstate NY those 2 months are miserable while here they tend to be pretty nice.

Folks always ask me about the difference in weather and it isn't January - whether it's zero out or 25 below you still aren't putting on a pair of shorts and hanging at the beach. But Oct-Nov and March-April - here it's either nice or at least has a shot at it, back home it's winter.

I knew a guy who said some people don't want to live in FL because it's so darned hot and humid in the summer. He said, that's just 4 months or so, the rest of the time, the weather is really good, while in Indiana we've got --

Jan too darned cold
Feb ditto
March wet and cold
April unpredictable weather
May OK, but might be 90 or might snow, rainy
June great weather
July a little bit hot
Aug too hot
Sept pretty good
Oct nice weather
Nov too wet, damp cold
Dec too cold and dreary

only 4 months of good weather.

When I lived in Indiana I hated the weather. Even in the summer when it's supposed to be nice it rains constantly (and the farmers still complain about precipitation) and its always muggy with some sort of impenetrable layer of clouds making it humid as hell. It was so muggy and gray in the summer mornings that this fog **** was always coming off the roads

DC is a lot better with the sunlight factor but the summers are brutal. The fall and spring months are beautiful though and it seems to rain much less in the spring than it does in Indy.

In my one trip to boston, I would definitely disagree. When the wind comes off the water, its much colder than Indiana.......Or at least what I remember from indianapolis.

Really? You think that's actually true?

We're right next to freaking Canada basically. On January 1, the winds shift from the west and come straight down from the north. We can have low temperatures all the way down to 30 below and vicious wind for months at a time because of it.

If the ocean effect were applicable or true for Boston, we wouldn't average four times the snowfall central Indiana gets.

DisplacedKnick
09-13-2007, 02:11 PM
If you go to: http://www.worldclimate.com/

Check Boston and Indy and Indy's average January low is colder than Boston's.

Of course by March Boston's is colder. Now if you go to my neck of the woods - Cooperstown's the closest town with temp minimum's (we're about 30 miles NE and a thousand feet higher) - we have both places whipped.

btowncolt
09-13-2007, 02:36 PM
Right - I know the average ambient low temperature in Indianapolis is colder than Boston for January.

The wind chill here is light years colder, which is what matters when you're outside. Plus, we lose all humidity to speak of which means my hands are bleeding by November.

And winter here lasts until June. At least it's over by April in Indiana.

The average temperatures won't tell the whole story when comparing northern cities.

Moving to Chicago from Bloomington, I expected it to be a *little* colder. I was not prepared for the reality I was to face.

The cold came a month early and ended a month later, the sky was darker, The winds were fierce, brutal and devastating. There was little natural beauty to take comfort in, there were no winter outdoor activities to enjoy.

The real difference was so monumental and unbearable, I swore off the midwest (and northeast) forever.

Time to go swimming ...

I lived in Massachusetts 10 years (until 2 years ago). It is true that the very coldest days of winter in Indiana are colder than the very coldest days of winter in Massachusetts. I think that we had below-zero nighttime temperatures only once or twice in those 10 years in MA, whereas you have at least a few below-zero nighttime lows in most years in Indy.

But in Massachusetts you can freeze your butt off in May, June, and even into July. My first summer there we went camping on the 4th of July and it was cold and rainy and in the low 50s. We got up and drove to WalMart to buy warm sweats. It was downright awful.

My brother did comment while he was here that the 90 degrees here seemed so much hotter than the 120 he left in Iraq because of the humidity. He said the 120 still sucks, especially with all that gear, but he was having problems breathing witht he change back to the humidity.

He heads back next week. I know thats gonna be hard as hell to go back after being off for 2.5 weeks.

March is defiantly my favorite.

You have Spring Break, March Madness, and maybe most importantly March to me means good weather is on the way. Lake season is gettin ready to start and then you can start looking forward to the end of school.

Hate cold weather. So any month that has cold weather (mostly November-Feb.) I hate.

Well, I will say that 90/90 in Indiana is far more uncomfortable - here it's just REALLY not.
