Yes. Moving away now. Coming here was a career move. Mission accomplished.

Short a a huge family emergency medical situation or other catastrophe, absolutely not. I moved here a year and half ago to start my career fresh out of college and love it. My fiance followed me down a few months later and she loves it as well. Weather is not the biggest factor in where i live, but it is a close second and after living up north for so many years and hating winter I regret not doing this sooner. We always joke about the fact that our kids will NEVER know what is is like to shovel a driveway. I spent 24 years shoveling snow, freezing, hating my life 5 months year and I am done with that. I understand that some people enjoy winter but neither of us do and neither of us ever will so we see no need to ever go north again.

It's definitely a health issue. I am Very athletic. Low body fat, descent muscle mass. My 75 year old Dr says I have the best cholesterol ratio she has Ever seen. I'm also small framed, which contributes to getting cold. I'm 47, 5'10, 160lbs

It's a health issue alright. It's called being Very healthy!!!

Well I'm glad to hear that you're healthy then.

Typically when I hear that people are cold in Florida it's because they have some sort of circulation issue or iron deficiency, etc.

I would and I did. I had a condition that caused me to sweat excessively, to the point where my shirt would soak. I thought it was the 70 degree dew points that caused it, but the die hard Florida crackers don't experience this. Whatever the cause, the condition seems to have gone away since I moved to a drier climate.

Strange place.

I've read that before too. I guess it interesting, but I def see it / can tell. Its almost like a Las Vegas feel or somthing, I cant quite put my finger on it.

I've seen some people on here say there would never live north of Tampa, which is reasonable. But really, you're not going to freeze anywhere in Florida. Even that cold spell we had in February was nothing.
