Figured I'd chime in as someone who is living in hot and humid Ohio and moving to hot and humid Florida. For me, having year-round decent weather will be a blessing. I'm a severe asthmatic and the cold is one of my major triggers. And it doesn't have to be 10 below to trigger it either. We spent a week in Florida in February. I walked around the entire time and never had a problem. Came home and went for a walk at the reservoir in 40 degrees and wheezed the whole walk. People up here can't believe I'm not having a tough time with the humidity and heat right now but I'm fine. It's the cold and cold wind that will be showing up in a few months that bothers me. I'm just happy to not be spending another 6 months inside like I did this past winter. By the way, for whoever posted about the windows fogging up- the windows here have been fogging up from the humidity for the past month.

I think the only thing I may have trouble getting used to is not being able to open the windows at night in the summer. Most days here even if it gets up to 90 you can open up the house at night because it cools to the 60's or low 70's. But I know in Florida the house stays closed up the entire summer. Something to get used to.

This is your quote from Florida a few years back so make up your mind........ You don't have to shovel or rake heat. You just put on your bikini and sit by your pool or in your air-conditioned house and enjoy your tropical drink of choice. So this winter while you're layering clothes over your longjohns and pulling on your galoshes to shovel out your car maybe you'll think of Florida in a new light with it's sky so clear and blue they should name a crayola crayon after it. And when you get your heating bill you can think of Florida with it's winter breezes gently blowing through our patios and our opened windows, the air so fragrant they should name a perfume after it.

Come here for a month in July and or August to see if it's right for you. I have the opposite reaction, I get asthma when it is humid like it is right now, the cool air helps me. Weird huh?

It gets so hot that sometimes my kids complain about the metal part of the buckle burning them when they first get in the car and put their seat belts on. Because this could be classified as child cruelty (making them burn themselves and all) I simply turn on the A/C and do not require them to buckle up until after we have crossed AT LEAST 2 intersections which are known for drivers blowing through red lights.

I think it's mind over matter. The heat doesn't bother me at all, like those guys that walk over hot coals. But if you can figure out a way to shovel or rake the heat and humidity you will become a billionaire. Guaranteed.

so true!. it hurts me though, because i'm the one that has to buckle in my 2 year old. i also have to hold my sunglasses (that i keep in the car) in front of the air conditioning before i put them on so i don't burn my ears and the bridge of my nose!
