Come to Chicago where our winters are filled with sub 0 temperatures, wind, and humidity.
And your summers rarely peak above 95, and never for long.
Where in Texas was it 90 plus degrees out two days ago that it is now 40?
If it's still warm enough to be humid, it isn't really cold. And 50 degree temp swings aren't at all uncommon and definitely aren't unique to Texas. Neither is high wind occurring when temps change.
106-in-the-shade NC summer hot enough?
Lake Erie blustery winter winds 0 degrees and sleeting cold enough?
But sure, of course how temperature feels is relative. Guess I'm fortunate to have lived in both extremes so I'm more or less used to both. I've gotta say though, I prefer it cold, cause you can always put more layers on, but you can only take so many layers off in summer before the neighbors start looking at you weird! And who doesn't like wheeling in the snow?!
This would be like me chuckling at someone from the U.P. because they think 80 degrees is even warm. In Texas, we hit 80 first week of March sometimes. By April, more days than not are spent at 80 or higher. If it's still cool enough to rain, it isn't really hot.
And I can sympathize if you've worked in the extreme heat, but in Texas, that's most of the year spent working in temperatures 80, 90, or higher. And the sudden drop from that is harsh. If you spend 5 months acclimating to high heat, and suddenly the temperature drops out from under you, you're gonna call it cold.
As for me, I prefer working in the heat. After awhile, you get used to the heat and you can just work without having to bundle up in movement-restricting clothes and gloves. Just stay hydrated and you're fine. Working in the cold, my hands get numb easily, my nose starts to run, and I have to keep adding and removing layers. It's just a pain. Snow-wheeling is fun and all, but I'd rather rock-crawl in the peak of summer to be honest. I guess if you're in the snow, you don't have to worry about the engine overheating. Of course, I bought a ZJ because it was air conditioned.
