Weather Tolerance
« on: June 05, 2016, 11:31:47 pm »
I was thinking about weather tolerance recently. It's really cool how a person's geography can really effect what kind of temperature, weather, etc. they can function better in. And it also depends how long they've lived in a region and learned to better adapt to things.

Personally, I have really bad heat tolerance. I would never be able to live anywhere hot like Arizona or California, and even 70 degree (Fahrenheit) weather makes me want to stay inside all day (even though I do that all the time anyways). On the other hand, though, I have a very high cold tolerance. I have lived my whole life in western Washington, and I don't mind cold, dreary, rainy weather at all. I can walk around in 40 degree weather (or maybe even lower) without a coat or heavy clothing on. I heard from my science teacher that she used to live somewhere really warm, but as soon as she moved here, she was having trouble feeling comfortable in the cold, wet atmosphere, unlike the people around her who had already been living in it for years.

Either way, what temperatures/weather do you feel the most comfortable in, and in what kind of region were you raised in? What are your max degrees for both hot and cold can you withstand until you start to want to complain to someone? What kind of weather do you generally prefer?

I was born dead of winter in canada, I hate the cold, I hate snow, I hate ice and I hate the sun reflecting off the snow into my eyes. In summer I can wear up to four layers of clothing including a parka and be fine.And something we rarely get but I love is RAIIIIIN. When I see it raining it calms me down and I can let the depression wash away (no pun intended). Also alberta summers get into high 30°c which is near 120°F I think. So to put that into perspective, If you dumped me in the middle of the Israli desert with only a sweater, I could live during the day and would die an hour into the night.

I seem to have been broken when I was born. Lived in Western Australia for 20 years, where in summer it regularly gets over 40c(104F) for weeks on end and I absolutely cannot deal with it, yet whack me in snow in negative temps, where that absolutely doesn't happen in Western Australia and I can walk around in a t-shirt and shorts perfectly fine. Really don't understand why my body is like to be honest.

My friend from Oregon who moved here though adjusted to the weather in Australia really quickly and now finds temps below 15c very cold.

this is actually something I love to talk about because not only is it location that can effect toleration but also skin tone cool, which is something i adore learning about. certain tones a can handle the colds better while others can handle the tropic and some the heat. It's all an amazing thing that's so much fun to study!

for me i would have to say that my tolerance would have to be in a wooded are with water and low or no humidity. I can stand tropical beaches too but i mostly stay in the woods/mountain range

Also alberta summers get into high 30°c which is near 120°F I think.
30°C is 86°F :fox-;):

Yesterday the temperature was 23°C and I could not bear it one bit. I was outside for four hours straight helping out at a charity event I n direct sunlight without a hat or sun cream on but so were others and they didn't seem overly affected like me (granted, I was probably moving around more than them). I actually got mild heatstroke and had to go lay down when I got home :(
Growing up in Minnesota where temperatures can go as low as -30°C I am much more comfortable in the cold because you can always put on another layer. Heat and humidity is what kills me :fox-:P:

Same. I hate the cold and have like zero tolerance for it :fox-:P: I can't stand going outside in the winter because I get cold immediately even with winter coats and stuff. However I'm completely fine in summer, the tempatures doesn't matter as long as I'm hydrated

Any temperature below 55° F is uncomfortable but tolerable for me, and temperatures below 10° F are where I stay indoors as much as possible.  On a warm, humid, Tennessee day, I can handle up to 85° F easily, and up to 95° F when windy.  Anything above 95° F with the humidity here is insufferable.  Out in the desert I can handle up to 110° F.

45-55 F is fine, and I can't stand anything above 80 f. I'm not built for harsh conditions >:U

I love the cold, and have an extremely high tolerance for it. 55-30 is comfortable for me. I can handle down to about 25, but that's when I'll start to get uncomfortable. I also like putting my head in the freezer in the summer because that's the only way I can get to the cold, I'm weird.

I can *tolerate* up to about 73 or so, but I won't be remotely happy about it. Anything above 62 starts to get too warm for me. I have a very very low heat tolerance, even mild warm spring weather isn't cold enough, lol.

I live in Georgia, where the weather can be in the 100s, or below freezing, so I can tolerate extremely high heat and some cold. I definitely prefer cold over hot, though, as summers are usually humid, not just hot. Humidity is the worst. 95 degree days are normal for me, as long as the year aren’t humid too.

I'm pretty tolerant of colder temps, being the most comfortable between 60-70, but I can tolerate the 20s-50s just fine(just not inside my own home ^^")
Single digits and negatives are a little less tolerated but your not suppose to be outside at that point anyway so that tolerance is normal XD
I have little to no heat tolerance though, I live in Michigan and always lived near one of the lakes so it's rare when it gets in the 90s. Anything over 75 is just too hot for me, e its worse when its humid xux

I grew up in Arkansas and moved to Wisconsin about 3-and-a-half years ago. It's hot all the time in Arkansas. One time, snow just started falling and we were immediately allowed to go home.  :lol-fox:
I always hated the hot, dry weather there. After about a year or 2 in Wisconsin, I could go out in 30-degree (Fahrenheit) weather in short sleeves and I'd be fine. I look around at other people that have lived here their whole lives wearing heavy coats while I'm wearing short sleeves. Sadly though, I can barely stand 60-degree (Fahrenheit) weather.
I have extreme cold tolerance and extremely low heat tolerance!

Bein from the south end of Tennessee I've seen snow tho not a lot
Still gets really hot in the summer but the bad part is the humidity, 100F is my hot limit or so in humid weather or around 110F in dry times
The coldest I can handle for extended time is around 0F or -5F tho I haven't been in places where it's been that cold regularly since I was just a baby when I last was in <-10F temperatures so I don't know much of 'em
