Too hot, too sunny, too humid ... the weather sucks 2012

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Hey, I LOVE this fall weather. I can climb hills on my bike without steam coming from my head! It did feel a bit chilly at times, but that was a welcome change.

I do complain about the weather here. So I just want to say, the last 2 days have been absolultely perfect.

Highs of 26 degrees, no sun, but dry, with high and light cloud. Fresh air and a light breeze. As others have said, it was great to ride and not drench the bike with my sweat.
Sublime weather in every way. Can we have 3 or 4 weeks of this, please?
It's raining again here. I'm rising up like a beautiful bubble to the surface.

A wicked wind whips up the hill, a handful of hopeful words.
I was what you would call seriously strung out.

I know, but last fall was appalling here, it rained and rained for ages.
The east coast weather owes me at least a month.

You can in Kaohsiung in Oct-Nov or Mar-April. It's finally getting into my comfort zone, in the evenings at least. Days are still way too hot.
