To answer the original question, How hot is it REALLY in Florida? It's hot... it really is. Some days you go outside and you think.... "Man, it's hot today." Even lately at night it's been very warm. Earlier in the season I place a window fan in the window over my bed at night to blow in nice cool air. Nope, not anymore. That windows stays closed. It is ALWAYS warmer outside than is inside at this point, my thermostat is set to 80. Right now the most pleasant temps are in the early morning. Because of this heat is precisely why I have a home with a pool. Looking forward to fall, winter and spring.

I also deal with it by taking vacations. Before we always took vacation in the winter to get away from the cold. This was kind of a pain since the kids were in school. We would rarely go on vacation in the summer, because summers in Alaska are awesome. Now, down here it's the opposite. We will vacation in the summer and go to Alaska to visit family or other area's where it will be cooler. Plus the kids are out of school, so it works great! During the winter, we stay put because the weather is great and all our friends and family are taking their vacations and visiting us.

There's only one place in the US that has almost perfect weather year 'round and that is Southern California by the coast.

The heat index will make it feel hotter than it is , obviously .Today our heat index was 106 with 76% humidity . Thats normal for this time of year this far south. I rarely am able to turn of my A/C by December and know for a fact I've had it on the past 2 years for Christmas. There are a few days tho here and there from Oct to Dec that I guess you could consider colder but not freezing. If you're not used to the heat down here it can overwhelm you I'm sure. Be prepared to see heat indexs over 100 daily from July -Aug.

I pray the day we load the Penske in October we get some sort of cool front, anything less than 200 degrees would be great. And yes I am exaggerating to those with no sense of humor.
