Let me tell you about wind in California. One year, I had to drive across the Golden Gate Bridge in 80 mph plus wind AND rain. I was petrified, to say the least. When I got home, electricity was off in several counties, trees were down everywhere, and our fence blew down. We just finished replacing the fence a few weeks ago!!!

I agree with the cooler summer comment. I love summer just as much as everyone else, but I seriously roasted my butt off. I went to my cousin's graduation party near the 4th of July and I thought I was going to die. It was in the 90's here in Pittsburgh and the humidity was up extremely high. There was no breeze and extreme sun, I remember just wanting to leave ASAP! You can't even eat when it's that hot because you feel sick. We had some very hot months and I just don't like it. I like a day when it's in the mid 70's and I can relax with the windows open and no AC.
But for now - winter is starting! We're supposed to get some snow in the next couple of days and the strong winds are supposed to continue. We have been having constant gusts since about noon that are over 50 mph!
