That's deeply ignorant.
These people are not uniformed, they are misinformed!

Realtors tell them that June is a month for open windows and doors.

People in Florida who spend most of their time in air-conditioning post forums about how wonderful the weather is!

One vacation in Florida during January while escaping the weather in the Midwest, and they are sold!

I know a gentleman who moved to St. Lucie after he retired. He moved back to the Midwest within two years citing the weather as the reason.

Those of you who cannot leave Florida because you cannot sell a house or whatever, you have my deepest sympathy!

Great point about the realtors glossing things over to make a sale. Zero days in Florida don't command AC in June. Also Floridians are very defensive. Most of them left families to move to florida and gave up a lot, then realized how hot and oppressive it is among other serious deficiencies so they sugar coat it to cover their colossal mistake. Spend a September in Florida, see if you miss fall when it is 90+ with 90% humidity every day before even considering a move.

Expect hot and muggy weather today -- OrlandoSentinel.com (http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/weather/orl-bk-orlando-weather-061609,0,86450.story - broken link)

This is mid-June folks, day after day of being holed up in your home because going outside is unbearable. There is never a break, not a second, not a minute.

Please explain how to gloss over weather and how to do it to make a sale.

Do buyers float around in a climate controlled bubble until they buy a house?

Quite a few days this month had highs of 81 or 82 with most of those days in the 70's for most of the day and mid to low 60's at night. If you need Ac in that weather then, no, Florida is not for you.

Colossal mistake? Most projections show Florida overtaking NY in population by 2020. Seems to me that many more like it here than you think and do not look at it as a colossal mistake.
