    Default You get used to the heat right???!!!

    Summer used to be my Favorite Season, now here in the DR I HATE IT!! I can't wait for winter which I used to HATE! Funny how things change.

    Seriously I will get used to the heat and humidity right? In a year or so???!!!!

    I know lots here seem not to be bothered by the Heat but of those who used to, please say you don't notice it as much :-)

    You'll get used to it...but you have to get out in it! I'm orginially from Houston, Texas and it is humid as Satan ballzsack there. I never did mind the heat until I moved away and then came back to visit. You'll aclimate...give it time and get outside! lol...

    Good luck!

    You just "manage" to pass by the summertime (mid June to mid-September). Anything else is bearable and actually fine October through March.

    The trick is not to be out and about on the streets between 1 pm and 5 pm, try to do everything you need to do on the streets before noon, and then take the afternoons off in summertime, If you work, work from airconditioned home office during the afternoon,s hit the streets for errands, meetups, etc. during the mornings.

    I love the winter, endure the summer. I try to get away for at least a month between June and October - just got back so still two more months to go before it gets bearable again.

    i'm with NV: it's hell. i love four seasons and the fact that all weather was temporary. and i loved british weather, waking up not knowing what the day is gonna be like. the summer in DR is getting worse and worse for me. i do not go out for days. i like hurricanes and winters and all those prolonged rainy seasons. heat? hate it.

    I have one in the bedroom but since we get 8-12 hours of street power if that and it is an inverter one i only have it on at night for a short period.

    One night i almost slept in the pool when we didn't have any street power :-)
