We opened our pool this weekend and today the kids went for their first swim.
We always consider that the beginning of our summer.

What starts your summer?

I live in South Central Texas.
My summer starts shortly after Valentine's Day.

Ditto here. The heat is by far the worst part of living here. I heard on the radio this morning that it's supposed to be in the 90s with a heat index in the 100s for the rest of the week. :(

Summer starts when our house gets to 90 degrees during the day (two weeks ago).

Summer will thusly continue in humid-indoor-heat for which there is no reprieve and follow on into August.

Summer is long
Summer sucks.

Years and years of this, though, have altered what I feel "comfortable" at - It use to be 72, now it's 80/85. . . above 85 and I get uncomfortable - it takes 90 degrees for me to be extremely uncomfortable.

When the house hits 95/100 - we live outside where, even though it's blazing hot out there, too, there is shade, sprinklers and the kiddie pool.

Yeah, I live in Louisiana and Texas for almost 5 years. It gets hot and humid in upstate New York but, for only 2 or 3 weeks a year. I never got used to it down there. I couldn't believe construction went on throughout the summer. Whew!

I envy your longer summer. I think the worse you feel about winter the older you're getting. Winter last year seemed like it laster for a whole year! Yuck!
