It really is what you are used to. I grew up in a house without decent central heating and used to wake up with the condensation frozen into a sheet on the window and it didn't do me any harm.
It took me several months to adjust to the heat when I moved to the Middle East and never really fully adjusted. The worst thing (and something the guidebooks don't mention) is the effect of going from a humid climate to an arid one has on your nose. My sinuses bang for at least a week when I go on holiday, the first time I went I ended up using saline spray. Conversely, the in-laws used to start putting on a roaring log fire when the outside temp got below ~20ºC, leaving the room too hot for me to stay in.
Perhaps that was the idea It backfired though, I'd simply wear a t-shirt and shorts, nobody wants to see my portly frame in those.....
... it is still autumn here in the southern hemisphere and I am almost freezing with a 20ºC (68ºF) in Brazil. No kidding, I find astonishing that there are people facing negative or near 0ºC temperatures somewhere!
Autumn just started today.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I spoke to my brother in Perth last weekend. Last Sunday, at 4 pm, it was too hot for a motocycle ride. 31 degrees centigrade. So he decided to wait a couple of hours.
-7 here this morning. I think we need the sun now! It's been a long, cold, snowy winter in Sweden.

What would you prefer latest language and basic wage or COBOL and £1,000,000? We're all, at the end of the day, code monkeys. Write code and make money. I'll take the one with the larger pay check thank you and you can all FRO with your latests & greatests.

That was my college time and I learned my COBOL (an acronym, proper form is all caps) on the job. I was an engineering and computer science student (both, one at a time) and I learned about 20 languages at college, none of which was COBOL.
COBOL was a commercial language (ie. $$$) and all the languages I studied were scientific or assembly. I don't think the accountants even studied COBOL at college.
