Hot Weather

Ellie Hall

Whenever I am asked, “Would you rather be in extreme heat or extreme cold?” my answer is always heat without hesitation. There is one reason for this—being cold is the worst feeling in the entire world. It is not only uncomfortable, it is physically painful. It actually hurts my skin. In addition, being cold can actually be dangerous to your body. According to Physicians Health Network, cold weather can cause constriction of blood vessels in the skin, lower blood supply, a raise in blood pressure, etc.

Also, cold weather increases the chance of injury. Cold weather also tends to bring out the worst in everyone both physically and behaviorally. It makes your nose red and runny, it makes you pale because you do not want to go outside, it dries out your skin, it makes your lips chapped. Do not forget that it makes people look frumpier because they have to wear so much clothes. People tend to lose their beach bodies; basically it just makes everyone a less attractive version of themselves. Also, it makes people want to stay inside and play video games or eat, which causes them to get fat and pale. It also makes people less fun to be around because they are so angry because they are cold. No one likes being cold; if someone says they do, they are lying.

Hot weather is quite the opposite of everything I said about cold weather. Hot weather makes people more attractive and happier. It causes most to go outside, so they get tan which makes them look more youthful. Though it is true that extreme heat can also be dangerous, it is more easily controlled because heat leads you to drink more water. Also, hot weather means summer which means no school which means happiness for all.

It is also the time for people to take their trips to the lake or the beach that they so often advertise on Instagram. Along the same lines, how often do you see Instagram photos during the summer with the caption, “Take me back to winter.” The answer is never. However, if I had a dime for every time I have seen someone tell all of their many Instagram followers to “take them back to the summer,” I would be a millionaire.

Therefore, everyone agrees that heat is much better than cold. Don’t worry friends, it is almost spring, and heat is coming. Hang in there!

When it comes to weather, everyone has their opinion about which season is the superior. Perhaps some people are too indecisive to choose one season, but they have some sort of opinion regardless. I think it’s great that we can all have our own opinion about weather, but I’ve noticed that a lot of people are wrong. For example, Ellie thinks that summer is better than winter.

As a precursor to my argument, I’d like to share a brief anecdote. Once upon a time, Jimmy and Petunia decided to go skiing. They drove up to the mountain with their bags packed and walked into the resort to buy lift tickets. “We’ll have two lift tickets, please,” Jimmy said to the man behind the counter. “It’s July,” replied the man, “go home.” Disappointed in themselves for forgetting that most fun things happen in the winter time, Jimmy and Petunia set off to look for something else to do. They searched the mall high and low, but they couldn’t find Santa anywhere. Finally, they asked a member of the mall staff where jolly Ole Saint Nick was. “It’s July,” said the man, “go home.” Disappointed in themselves for forgetting that Christmas happens in December, Jimmy and Petunia went home to cry because nothing exciting happens during the summer.

Jimmy and Petunia fell victim to a tragic situation – warm weather. Cold weather is far superior. For example, when it’s cold outside, anyone can easily feel more comfortable by simply wearing more clothing. If it’s hot, you can get totally naked and you’ll still be hot. Cold weather has so much more to offer. Warm clothing is way more stylish than stuff you might wear during the summer. Colder weather also means football season, basketball season and best of all, cuddle season. Everyone loves some good snuggle weather. When’s the last time you saw someone cozy up by a fire with some hot chocolate during August?

In addition to all of these benefits, colder weather also brings with it the holiday season. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve are the three most enjoyable Holidays of the year. Not only do these holidays make life happier and more exciting, but they also mean that school is not in session for a good while. Speaking of which, cold weather also brings about the occasional snow day. Though rare, usually school is cancelled at least one day each year due to inclement weather. Even though it’s only a day, having school unexpectedly cancelled is one of the best feelings ever. In short, I’d rather be cold than hot 12 times out of 10.
