I hate Florida. It makes you crazy with anger being hot for this long. It is truely hell and God for bid a Hurricane comes and knocks out the electric and you have to wait a week till you can actually feel air again. If you come to Florida be prepared to get stuck here cause this place traps people. Florida is a cancer.

So insightful. But for some reason I don't seem to get crazy with anger.

It is truly great weather to me, have been here 20 years and never had any real issues with hurricanes though my power was out for a day one time.

I am not stuck here, I just choose to stay. Did someone steal your car keys, is that why you can't leave?

It can be unpleasant at times, but I still prefer it over the cold winters up north.

At least in the hot summer, you don't have to worry about throwing layers of clothes on and you can at least do activities outside (fishing, boating, swimming, exercise, etc.)

which knocked out our power for 4 hours. Even though the storm made the temp go down to about mid 80s, the air was still as thick as pea soup and there was no breeze whatsoever. AC? We didn't even have fans without any power. It was brutal.

After 3 hours, my husband called the power company and wanted to know not only when power would come back on, he even asked if our condo about 10 miles away had their power. It did. He was ready to get in the car and drive there to have AC, TV, and cold drinks. He was prepared to sleep at the condo rather than spend the night at the house with no AC.

I am in NY right now. It is 85 degrees right now. We not only don't have AC on, but we don't even have fans going because the humidity is low. We have all the windows and doors open and there is a nice, STRONG, COOL breeze coming in. The breeze is stronger than any fan could be. It's lovely. It is not even like this in the WINTERS in Naples; not that strong or cool of a breeze. Plus, even in the 70s in the winter, it is still HUMID. Yuck.

It is very nice to not have all that horrible, awful HUMIDITY; nevermind the 90+ every single day for months on end.

Heat and humidity makes me very irritable too.

Can we just get a sticky for people to complain about the heat to their heart's content?

Most places up north don't receive much or any snow until December. Same with the consistently colder weather.

By February the days are getting longer, the temps a tad warmer. Dec. & Jan. are really the worst two months. The rest not so bad.

Much better than seven months of humid and hot weather that Floridians have to deal with each year. Not to mention all the creepy crawlers than infest the state.

I lived there for three years. I thought I died and went to hell.

Where does it get warmer in February? In Atlanta it was too cold already in November and it did not let up until late April. The icy, wet weather does not need snow to be intolerable. I'll take the swamp.

I've got more than one childhood picture that involves me going trick-or-treating in snow boots, and I can remember it snowing the first weekend in May when I was a senior in high school.

In downstate NY November and December are generally pretty mild. RARE to have a White Christmas. January and February are usually the coldest and snowiest months.

I suppose cold is all relative. 40s and 50s in November isn't really cold to a lot of people. That is still above freezing and it isn't going to snow with those temps.
