You have to understand -- I live in a place where the mid 70s is about as warm as it gets except for maybe two or three weeks' worth of days scattered through the summer, and where we can go whole summers without hitting 90 (we get a couple of days at 90 about every other year or so as a general rule).

Now, eighteen years later, I do exactly the same thing <g>.
It's good to take vacations out east (I grew up thinking "mid west" meant Nevada, but have lived all around the U.S. now) - just to be reminded how comfortable Denver's "bad weather" is.
And despite how many people laugh at people who claim dry heat is better - it is a *lot* better.
