It's the same thing: This place should have a climate that can grow this fruit because I feel like it should.

Not to me! I lived in Texas for a year. That's when I realized I needed to have seasons. Living in a place with the same seasons all year long is super boring. Even if you dislike hot/cold weather, I'm sure we all would appreciate a change in climate.

I mean, there must be a reason why people visit Florida in the winter and why people visit cooler climates in the summer.

It's because they can't afford California or the coast of Spain/France/Italy

Same? Where's the meteorological/geologic proof like I provided?

Except Florida is more desirable than any of those places. Humid subtropical/tropical climates > Med climates.

Exactly. That's why Florida is more expensive than coastal California.

For me that would be like 5-6 months of a drumroll. Everyones like a drumroll, the anticipation it creates and the comforting feeling that something is about to come to a head, a resolution. But if it lasts too long and you don't get the payoff (Winter) it can be just maddening.

And without winter, the ecstatic feeling brought upon by the arrival Spring never occurs. No crocuses poking through the snow, no branches suddenly crusted in green and purple buds, no heavy showers that reinvigorate the slumbering earth, and those first warm days (50-60F) when you can wear a short sleeved shirt... The very earth smells like life.

But only if you get Spring after Winter.

I don't mind fall or spring. I prefer summer. I wouldn't be sad if I never saw another leafless tree and dead grass again.

I suspect that very few people are going to agree with that.

I could afford going to California (not at the moment, but if I decided to go there on vacation, I could easily save up. I go to Miami every year and that ain't exactly cheap.) but I could care less. I might go to California and get paid for it to be on a TV show sometime this year, and that would be fun but besides that, I couldn't care less Not everyone has an obsession with California. I'd like to visit, and return to Minnesota before I lose my mind.

There's no reasons those places should grow coconuts besides the fact that you want them to.
