I never realized that was anyone's quote, but I have said the same thing many times, and truly believe it.

I am the same. I have WAY more energy in cooler temps, than in warmer ones. If I am working outside, or doing sports like mountain biking, I much prefer the cooler end of the spectrum, but If I have a cocktail in hand, and am hanging around a beach, only then can I enjoy temps in the high 20's C (80's F).
Easter weekend was a prime example. 3 nights in a row temps fell to around -5°C (23°F), and we were up 'til 2am partying away by a blazing campfire. During the day it got fro 5-10°C (41-50°F), and we had great fun outside, playing bocce, putzing away, and even ate our Easter dinner outside.
Not to say I do not enjoy warmth. Days around 20-24°C (68-75° F) are comfortable to me.
Thus the need to get A/C in my new build, as we hope to explore into that sorching, parched southern part of the continent too.
