Lol. Yeah, I figured as much. I'm keeping my eye on the sky here, as it is. Many times I've had to haul a** to get my clothes off the line when a rain storm blows through.

Well, one thing to consider there is that much of city vs. region population stats sometimes messes up the picture. For example, so much of El Paso city is suburban in nature, that it has received that distinction (smart urban planning thinking in a way I believe). So, while Orlando and El Paso both feel equally unsafe in certain areas, and equally where safety isn't even a concern in many areas, El Paso gets better marks for that as city population is 681K, larger than Washington DC, Boston, Miami or Atlanta (LOL. Seems Legit...)... But bottomline is, it's big enough and diverse enough of a city that safety wouldn't be a concern, despite being located across from Juarez.

As per poster commenting on inland vs. coastal humidity, I'd agree that there's generally a slight difference. I think wind probably helps temperature also, depending on the day. But, it also comes down to what you personally prefer. For me, the thing I dislike most about summer is that feeling of the sun basically having the same relationship with you when out in it that a microscope can have to an ant. So, bicycling the Cross Seminole Trail (which is in the Orlando area and mostly shaded, plus having the breeze that naturally comes with being on a bike), is personally more refreshing for me than swimming out in the Gulf or Ocean.

It's sure not nice by my coast and i am less than a 1/4 mile from the gulf. I see much less rain than anyone inland of me and much more sunshine thanks to a never ending west wind.

I live beachside on the east coast of Florida. Beachside is the little strip of land between the Atlantic and the intercoastal waterway. It is a lot more comfortable beachside than 5 miles inland.

Yup,I live on the water too and I'm out every single day of the summer enjoying the great weather.
I rarely have the A/C on during the day and rely on breeze,shade and fans to keep my house at a reasonable comfort position.
Why people who complain constantly about the weather don't just up sticks and move somewhere colder is beyond me although they'd probably start complaining about the cold when they get there.
Some people just like complaining I guess.

I think it's just a matter of personal tastes and circumstances. My own brother is the opposite of me and would love to live in Alaska (through circumstance he is in Texas--go figure). Some people can't take the harsh heat/humidity, but may not be in a position to leave FL. I myself am stuck where I live for now, and I guarantee that I'm not going to stop complaining about winter for the rest of my stay here. Lol.

Actually most of Florida is very dry compared to basically any place in Europe. Orlando is drier than Athens, which is the driest city in Europe.

There is no difference in humidity between Florida and New York.

Florida is the most humid state in the USA. There's a big difference in humidity (and more importantly dew point) between NY and FL

In addition to Dew Point, the heat index measurement gives us an idea of "felt" temperature as it relates to your bodies ability to cool itself. Hotter air has the ability to hold more vapor, limiting your ability to cool off.

tldr: Florida is HOT AS HELL :-)
