The worst thing about Florida isn't the heat, it's the humidity... and the mosquitoes... so much for paradise.

Nowhere in Georgia even comes close to any of these places in the west, even though their state-wide average temperature is higher. Granted, none of these places has anywhere near the humidity of the east and southeast. It gets oppressively hot in Georgia...and also lots of other places.
