Moderation - even (esp?) with regards to humidity!
I spent a very little time in a temperate rain forest (Alaska Inside Passage), beautiful, but I was not there long enough to realize the ravages of that constant high humidity. I couldn't take the humidity that T-Al lives with. I'll turn on the A/C here more with regards to humidity than to temperature.
Northern IL has it's challenges climate-wise, but dry air in the winter, some high humidity for a period in the summer, and the change from hot to cold keeps a lot of critters and other problems at bay.
