I don't mind being a tourist, I just don't want to be around them too often.

Even highly-qualified employees tend not to be treated well or even fairly due to the supply/demand situation and Florida being a right-to-work state.

You probably wouldn't enjoy being without power for two weeks in August as we were during the 2004 hurricane trifecta. We felt very fortunate to have clean water! This kind of experience gives such a special meaning to the phrase, "We aren't all on vacation."

If you do come down and don't like it you can always relocate. At least you won't always wonder what it would have been like. Sorry we can't paint a rosier picture but we are being honest with you.

Good luck.
I appreciate the honesty, that's why I came to the forums. Thank you!
