This has been the strangest weather I've seen since I moved to Florida. The wind begins to blow, the sky darkens, thunder roars in the distance, getting closer every few seconds, lightning flashes, the thunder gets louder, strong gusts of wind howl, my lights flicker, and then the sun shines. Not a drop of rain. Not even a sprinkle.

I'm in Port Charlotte and I keep seeing "heavy rain" on the news in other counties. A really good soak would be nice & refreshing. I've lived in SWFL for over 16 years, so I'm familiar with the weather patterns, but the past few days have been like a mother nature teaser.

We got nailed today right at about 3-4pm. It was great, man did it pour. The best part was it took the temp down to 74 degrees, and killed the humidity. I took advantage and rotated my jeeps tires and did a few other things while it was nice out.

Thanks for spinning blizzards and floods into being a good thing! That will help me a lot while I pump out my basement. But I still can't wait to get back to Florida.

Chris, check out Asheville NC. It's beautiful, the people are extremely friendly, people from all over, mountains, hills, 4 seasons but all pretty mild.

its really a coin toss between whats worse the winter up north or the summer in florida...people up north complain that its so hot in the summer up there...listen, down here every single day for about 6 months it is like your hottest possible day in summer...up there u get lil hot spells for maybe a week or so then its back in the 70s, 80s sometimes even 60s. then when the weather gets nice here its winter time and the days r short, it gets dark by 6pm, people get super busy with the holidays, etc and in a blink its summer again...u better love super hot, humid, wet, relentless weather to survive down here

Only a few more months for you Chris...

It's about 65 degrees here now with the high to go up to around 84 today. Only a half day of work for me today and then it's off to the waterfalls with the family for a picnic!
