Funny you should say that. The first year I was here I do not think I wore a jacket once, The heat did not bother me too much. I think all my sweat evaporated off me and I stayed relatively dry.
After a couple years I found my wife and myself flipping on the seat heaters we thought we would never use. We then looked at thermometer in car and it was in the upper fifties!
I got a few more years older and several pounds heavier and suddenly the heat really gets to me. I try to do everything early to beat the heat, yet find myself drenched in sweat when it is 75 degrees out. It gets 40 degrees warmer than that yet. I would rather live back in South Dakota and have the change of seasons. Then again, I am getting older and have more body aches and less desire to deal with the cold as well. I often hear my wife talking saying that you never have to shovel sunshine here. I laugh as I had never witnessed her shoveling snow back there either.
I am fortunate enough to not have to be in the sun or even outdoors for extended periods most of the time. If I did, I would be begging wife to move.
Welcome . You say you helped with the sausage making. If that included hunting you now live in a state that has some BIG Elk and Mule Deer. You being a resident your chances of getting a tag are great vs non resident. Good luck
