How could you guys live in Florida, or even in Southeastern U.S.?
It's SOOOO Hot and soo HUMID that I almost died when I visited Florida in august this year for three weeks!!
Even the rain is so bad... thunderstorm almost everyday, then sun, then clouds, then rain etc.
Well, OK the weather gets much better for few months, but it's still hot & humid for around 8 - 9 months... omg!
Well, many people would say that NJ has humid summers too... but at least we have many days with dryer air during the summer, 4 distinct seasons with pleasantly spring and fall, plus it's not 90's F every day and humidity is not 80 - 100%. A place where you can't walk outside without sweating is horrible.

Well, I love Florida but the weather is an issue for millions of people.
I bet Florida would have much more people if the weather was not as hot or humid

I grew up in FL and lived there for the first 35 years of my life before moving to the Northeast in 2006. I look back now and have no idea how I lived in that stifling hot and humid swamp. It's really overwhelming and drains all your energy. And it seems that the summers never end. Even the winters have gotten warmer the last several years as those 82 degree days in December is still ridiculous.

I am in the best shape of my life now because I actually enjoy being outdoors jogging and biking 5 evenings a week. Even in the winter I can get out and enjoy the outdoors on all but the coldest days. Just gotta wear the right clothes. Having four seasons is truly wonderful and I regret that I never experienced that as a kid.

But having no power after all the hurricanes in 2004 and sitting in a pool of your own sweat for days and days was the last straw, I knew it was time for a change.

Default New England weather sucks too.

I can say the same about the weather in the Northeast but just my opinion.

Lived in New England half my life and was ready for a change also.

Grew up in NY and CT. Been living in FL since 2003. 9-10 months of oppressive humidity is too much for me. I will GLADLY take 3 months of bitter cold over that. For me, thats anything below 30 F.

Anything over 75 F here (outside of Jan and Feb), is too uncomfortable for me because of the humidity. I have never experienced as much discomfort from the weather as I have living here.

My kids are still babies, but there is no way I will raise them here. They will have the benefit of knowing what 4 seasons are, among other things...

My dream is to be able to live in Florida between October and early May and getting the **** out of there from late May through September,maybe somewhere with nicer temps in the summer,maybe Northern Cali.Florida weather in the summer is in one word,depressing,but you can't beat those cool,crisp cloudless winter days.

Sorry, but that's about the most idiotic statement I've seen posted ever anywhere.
