Some people haven't figured it out yet.

One of the most exciting things about the weather change there was the first real cold front to go through FL. That was the best feeling after a long summer.

Don't you mean "not as warm" front ?

As I read the posts of people who *love* to struggle in the frigid arctic wastes, I thought of THIS. Have fun on HOTH, ICE PLANET. Say "hi" to the Taun Tauns for me! (all credit due to Cixel for that last bit) XD

Florida is for beach, sun, bug and humidity lovers only. I have been here 35 years and will certify that. Jacksonville at least has a change of seasons. Any area below St. Augustine is like being caught in suspended animation. Below that latitude the sun will feel much hotter due to the latitude being below 30 degrees. Below Belview ( Ocala) is also the same.
Incomes are low here, and you can forget about unions.

Because you feel alive. Try the sun burning you up, the bugs biting and the humidity suffocating you.

Have you burned up or suffocated? Being a wuss is one of the traits you cant have here.

18 years I was there, and yes I did have my complaints about the heat. I am still alive, never burned to death, suffocated, and wasn't eaten by a giant FL bug. Want to come to MA and get frost bite, then be swarmed by mosquitoes all summer?

Then why do some many wusses stay indoors all summer in A/C when the heat index is over 100 ?

Exactly what I do and what most people do. There are some hardcore people that can go outside and somehow make the most of it, but not this guy.

I'd rather be outside in the cold than deal with that suffocating heat that doesn't give you a break even when the sun goes down.
