Betting odds. Villages 75%. Naples 25%. Hopefully we will be down there in a month or two....
I hate FL for 4 reasons, not in this
order. Too many people, and too
many of them old. Too much
traffic caused by people.
Too many bugs 365 days a year.
The whole state is butt ugly. Flat
as a pancake, it's all palm tree's
and strip malls. And freeways.
Last but not least, the humidity.
Winter and summer. Feels like
I can't breathe. My dad lived in
FL in the winters and I hated
visiting him. I swore I would
never live there.
And no good casinos in FL.
They all drive to the Gulf
coast in MS for casinos. Way
too far for me.
If I had to live someplace warm
in the winter it would be Hawaii.
Gorgeous year round.
I looked at my thermometer this morning and it says 15 degrees. I turned on The Weather Channel and it says a town 20 miles away is at 3 degrees.
Florida is the lightning capital of the country. I'd avoid the state for that reason alone. But there's hurricanes, tornadoes, deluges, and oppressive muggy heat.
You're lucky if you have to use
Orkin once in your life. In FL
you keep Orkin on your speed
dial. Men retire at 50 millionaires
for staring a bug company at
Maybe we can arrange a trade. I'll gladly take a few snow days in exchange for getting rid of the bugs & humidity!Quote: DRich
I would take bugs and humidity 365 days a year to avoid one single day of snow.
BTW, we might not see the extreme weather that the rest of the country seems to be going through, but ours is no less wacky:
Today's high: 56° F
Tomorrow's high: 81° F
Friday afternoon high: 56° F
It's much more reliable for predicting the
weather than using the equinox as a guideline.
It runs March April and May. Meteorological
summer is June July and August. So the real
spring it's finally here.
