Well, I voted no way too hot and too humid, in comparing it to another state AND comparing South Florida to North Florida where I also have lived. South Florida is definitely way too humid and hot.

End for me too. Bye, bye.

My choice was not in the poll. Just perfect would be my choice.

Florida's climate is just perfect and fits me and my family perfectly.

If you saw no need, then you didn't understand what I was saying and I see no purpose in further explaining.

That is a pretty straight forward freaking question.
LOL!!! It wasn't a "straight forward freaking question" for YOU. In fact I believe you indirectly called it "ignorant" because of the great variance in Florida's climate did you not? (If you've forgotten already, see your quote below)

So again, apparently YOU are allowed to ask for more specifics on this question, but I am not....

I suggest everyone just ignore RhettButler so that this thread doesn't get shut down.

You are so right!!!! We just drove to Texas from the Tampa area and Northern Florida is ALOT different looking then the Tampa area. My husband and I were so surprised how hilly it is on I 10 and how much more prettier it is. What a long drive...ugh!

I saw no need because it did not fit the parameters of what the thread was asking.

I thought you were done here anyway?

The question was straight forward. If someone has only been to one area of Florida they comment on that area, 2 areas they comment on those areas.

I called the answers, that spoke as if all Florida had the same weather, ignorant. If you have only been to Miami and did not like the weather it is ignorant to say all Florida's weather is terrible.



So again, apparently YOU are allowed to ask for more specifics on this question, but I am not....

Yes, but, how do u like driving in it the next day , slipping on it as you walk, shivering in the cold damp weather ... as compared to the Florida climate ?

We didn't have drive anywhere. Actually, we walked to the local bagel store that morning. Then took the train in to Manhattan later that day. It was a very nice day.

I worked overnight shift on LI. I drove many, many nights to work in the snow, and ice, at midnight before the roads had been plowed, or anybody else had even driven on them. Side roads, not main highways. You do it. It's part of life.

I completely agree. Someone said they had their A/C off and your doors open? Are you kidding? I played golf today, and it was 90 degrees by 11am. I'm a FL native, and I'm pretty young, so I think I can bare the heat better than some. But it was hot as heck today, no question about it.

Wow, I find that hard to believe considering we live in the same city. We have the A/C on all the time. If you have your A/C set to kick on at 75 or less, it will kick on a lot, even in the winter months. For you not to use it in some of out hot months, or maybe just sometimes, you must have it set for like 82 degrees, which inside the house, is WAY too hot for us.
