I used to live in a coastal area of Florida where you always had a beach breeze. Now, in central Florida, I do find it feels a bit like a big hot terrarium when I get in the car each morning. It STILL has to be more pleasant than shoveling snow and facing so much cold weather all winter.
Not as pretty..... but still more pleasant.

Who is actually enjoying it outside just exactly the way it is, hot, humid, rainy, then sunshine, steaming hot, humid...

I love the storms, the flowers that bloom, my white birds of paradise that grow, oleanders etc. I enjoy an afternoon dip in the pool and the steamy evenings. By the time I'm sick of it the nice weather rolls in. If only we had mountains down here I'd never leave.

It was 95 and humid today. The family just went out to the mall, but between walking in the parking lot and riding a hot car before the AC got cool, we were just exhausted from the heat. My wife and I took a nap in the afternoon, and woke up with headaches from the heat. To be honest, I would rather shovel snow. Snow and cold is COLD, but I don't get that feeling of being sweaty dirty like I do down here. The heat makes me feel sleepy, the cold keeps me up. I do admit it's harder to wake up in the winter up north when you're under a warm blanket, but once you're in the cold, you don't have to worry about having that sleepy feeling or trying to keep your eyes open. Before you ask why don't I move then, well, I'm already planning to move. Just waiting on my daughter to finish high school. Three years can't come soon enough.

I spend more time indoors here than of the other states we have lived in. That is the reason why you see so many obese people in FL( even younger people) they become inactive due to the hot humid weather.[/quote]


Ha! Have you been to Maine? You'd be hard-pressed to find a normal weight person. All you feel like doing 8 months of the year is staying in and eating comfort food. If I didn't have the dogs to walk I probably wouldn't go outside at all. Having said that..I'm loving the weather now..after the rainiest June/July in decades we finally have some sun and 80 degrees!

"Normal weight" is relatively large, these days.

I see you are making up facts again to try and support your statements.

Florida happens to have one of the lower obesity ratings in the nation. There are 36 states with higher percentage of obese.

I love what the summer weather is doing to our landscape. Everything has become very lush and green.

Default Not so brutal.

Your poll is biased. Most people don't say they love the heat in Fl. They say that OVERALL the weather is better. All of those people who warned us that the heat was so brutal overstated things. It was hot in western Colorado too. Yes it is a dry heat (so is an oven) and it is MUGGY here, but it is more than worth it.

^^^There are many people that say they love the heat here in Florida. Most people don't have a complaint about the actual temperature during the summer, as many places in this country are warm during the summer months. The complaint for many people in Florida is how long it stays warm/hot/humid. Depending on what part of the state someone lives in it can be the 80s or higher for 8 months out of the year. So for those people they don't get a long enough break from the heat.
