When it's damn too hot.

BTW, earthquake isn't really a type of weather.

Earthquake is not weather...... That's a geological phenomenon, has nothing to do with the atmosphere

As a weather geek, I'm up for almost anything. But if I'm outside, moderate/heavy rain at temps between 33 and 45 is definitely not something I enjoy.

I'd probably hate snow if I grew up with it, but seeing as it's a relatively unusual phenomenon around here, I really like snow. Visiting MSP last winter, while it was below zero, was awesome!

BTW, I chose other as I assumed "hurricane" meant "tropical cyclone" (a weather phenomenon I like to track, since I'm far away from them). Because I also hate hurricane-force winds.

#1 - Drought - boring and leads to allergy problems with dust/pollen
#2 - Drizzle and overcast - depressing and annoying when running the windshield wipers (not enough moisture to run without making that scraping noise)
#3 - Sprinkles/Flurries - just a tease -- might as well not, especially in Florida winters when it comes to sprinkles, where it goes weeks without raining.

Hot weather above 75 degrees; added humidity, muginess, wildfire smoke, etc.

Snow that is under an inch. I want substantial snowstorms!

Hail.

Pretty much everything else I can deal with, but hail is just too damaging, especially if you're like me and don't have a garage.

Here in UT, we get everything. About the only big weather event I haven't seen here is a major ice storm, although we often have a couple days with freezing rain in the winter during an inversion (which is the one kind of weather I hate). I guess we haven't ever had a hurricane, but the remnants of Pacific hurricanes can come up during monsoon season and cause floods and severe thunderstorms.

Cold and windy. Gotdamn, do I hate that. Easily the most painful kind of weather (to me, at least, but then again, tornadoes and such don't frequently effect me).

The only thing I miss about living in the High Desert (Hesperia) is the usual dryness that accompanies heat in those parts (the very occasional monsoon coming up from the Gulf of California notwithstanding) -- there's a reason swamp coolers are prevalent in those parts.  Up here in San Jose and environs the heat is often paired with very high humidity -- when it gets over 93 degrees or so, I seem to have a permanent layer of moisture on my face, head, and forearms -- which is annoying when any kind of work need to be done (even of the paper variety!).  Doesn't bother my GF much; she works in an air-conditioned hospital -- and she lived in Atlanta for several years, so heat & humidity is second nature to her -- and as she often reminds me, there aren't any "goddam chiggers to bite you" out here on the coast -- and to suck it up!
