Mine would be 72, a bit overcast, with a pleasant warm breeze. No squinting, sweating, or diving for shade.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

IDK? I've been enjoying 72° sunny and breezy in San Diego. I'd have to say its darn near perfect compared to the 93° and 70% humidity back home!

Hi, what you described is my perfect, since the over a month long rain is over it immediately went to the high 90's, humid and miserable, lol

Anything between 55 and 65. Easier for me to take cooler weather than the heat. NO wind! A mild breeze is nice.

I'm pretty easy. What ever weather is occurring now is perfect...provided I can see my feet (no snow), my shoes are not wet (no flooding) and there are no tree branches poking through the roof of the house (no hurricanes or tornado).

60 to 75 F with some sunshine, gentle breeze, 40% humidity and some days of drizzle, would be perfect for me. Smiling

75 and less than 50 percent humidity. I usually get my wish. We usually have pretty mild summers. We average only 5 at the most 90 and over temps from May - October.

Just came back from rescuing some plants from a demolition site and thought I would post on this thread.
I was filthy, hot, sweaty and almost finished digging up a ton of plants, the sky broke open and poured rain all over everything, with lightning and thunder. I said, "Perfect, just perfect" as I waited out the cloudburst under the overhang of a shed.

Okay, it wasn't actually perfect but the cleansing rain sure felt good!

When I was a small child we were taught to appreciate all weather. Yep, when there was a cloud burst (without lightning) Mom would put on our swim suits and send us outside to enjoy the free entertainment. We were even allowed to scream like banshees. Thumbs up

Sunny with low humidity and about 65-68F. We had weather like that when we went to Flagstaff in May and it was heavenly. It would get down into the 30s at night but would warm up quickly as soon as the sun came up.
