MIAMI IS ONLY A TRANSITIONAL ZONE. TAMPA IS NOT EVEN TRANSITIONAL. THESE ARE THE FACTS.

TROPICAL VEGETATION BELONGS IN SAN JUAN PUERTO RICO NOT TAMPA.

THERE ARE NUMEROUS KNOWLEDGEABLE PEOPLE IN FLORIDA WHO TRAVEL TO THE TROPICS ,LIKE THE CARIBBEAN, BECAUSE THEY UNDERSTAND THEIR PLACE IS NOT THE TROPCIS.

IN FACT MANY WERE ON MY PLANE FROM FLORIDA. THEY LOOKED HAPPY TO BE TRAVELLING TO A TRULY TROPICAL AREA LIKE PUERTO RICO. I KNOW I WAS.

I WOULD LAUGH AT FLORIDA FROM MY MOTEL ROOM IN TROPICAL SAN JUAN PUERTO RICO. Jim Cantore and Stephanie Abrams those FLOORDUH lovin' dorks and that stupid show CSI Miami.

YOU CAN REALLY SEE THE DIFFERENCE WATCHING THAT SHOW FROM A MOTEL ROOM IN THE CARIBBEAN
Nobody every said Tampa was tropical or that its warmer then Puerto Rico.

Well I posted the definition of tropical to show him that what people were saying about Miami being tropical was true according to the definition. He told me I was using the popular definition. I guess I should have used the unpopular definition.

I also did a search on tropical UV like he keeps ranting about and came up with no real sources just some posts of his under the name Razwell on trip adviser from 2005 ranting that Miami was not tropical because they didn't have tropical UV.

I think that he thinks that people in Miami and other parts of Florida really care whether it is considered tropical or not. Most just like the weather and really couldn't care whether it was considered tropical or arctic just as long as it stays warm and sunny.
