The weather is HOT HOT HOT right now. We mostly stay inside or swim in the pool. IMO it's too hot to ride bikes, or walk, run etc. Thank goodness for A/C!

For the most part, I am enjoying it. Ride my bike several times a week, and work in my yard about twice a week. Weather not bad for me at all!

No. My family is taking a vacation to look at houses in Long Island this Thanksgiving. If I could be mad at one thing above all about my childhood is spending it in this furnace, where half the year you can't even take a jog.

Who can seriously jog outside right now? It's 88 degrees where I am, and the humidity essentially makes our peninsula a giant sauna. We have a nice gym near where I live, but why live here unless you are a physically inactive old person, who couldn't jog anyway, who has high intolerance to cold. That's the only person I'd tell to move here.

I CANNOT be the only person on here who stays inside in the Summer except to maintain my tan. I can't even go outside without squinting. I'll admit though, I can jog at night sometimes during the hot months, but the problem is even though the sun goes away, the humidity stays throughout the night. Yargh!!!!

I don't like it much but I'll take it over 4-5 months of winter. Its unbearable during the day but everywhere in Florida all the homes and businesses have the A/C going full throttle. 2-3 weeks from now there should be some slight relief in the evening. I think the worst months for heat in FL are early May-mid August. By September people are tired of the summer but the sun is not quite as intense as it is in May. the nights are longer...finally.

Alright, if you'd prefer boring monotony over watching the beautiful changing seasons,.

If you really don't mind it getting over 80 degrees most of the year, then Florida's fine.

But just a couple of days ago, it was 83 degrees. In DECEMBER. So now we're talking 80+ degrees weather ALL YEAR.

If you want that hell take it, but I can't wait to move to New York, and for the first time spend a whole year, watching the seasons change, and living in a world-class city full of culture and things to do.

I will not miss this sandbar.

that is why I didn't want to be in Naples for Christmas. 82 degrees? No, thanks. Right now I am in NY at my daughter's house. It's beautiful outside today. 20s and a lot of snow on the ground. Picture PERFECT.

I want to move back home.

I guess the 55 degrees today, the 49 degrees right now and the freezing temps tonight equate to 80+ degrees all year round.

Personally I wish it would actually stay 80+ year round.
