But how are coconuts related to a discussion about whether or not change of seasons is overrated?

And your excursions happen even at midnight?

The coconuts relate to my reason for why I dislike the four-season climate, and why I think it is overrated:

I do not see how anybody could not like the change of the seasons even if it is the South. Only South Florida does not have a change of seasons. Even the Deep South states have a fall and winter, it can get cold in AL, MS, LA for a few months.

Only one of our mainland states can produce coconuts - Florida.

Which means that even in the many remaining states with only a 2 season climate, coconut production is still not possible.

South Mississippi here on the Gulf is miserable hot from April to November ... it's still in the 80's in October. It's cold for a very short time, winter is generally in the 60's+ here. No fall leaves. No snow. I miss Michigan.

Did you not read my post, where I explained the factor that made coconuts so limited in the Southern US?

Midnight? Try four AM lol I am not saying there's no bats in South Florida.. I am just saying I never seen one. You act like they are everywhere and totally help with the mosquito population, but they're not that common. Maybe in rural areas of South Florida. Certainly not where most people live. There are a lot of lizards so yes we have insectivores but they only do so much especially where mosquitoes are concerned. Mosquitoes suck down there, for 8-9 months of the year. Cooler drier months are more tolerable but bugs don't ever truly go away.

Also forgot to mention: coconuts also grow in the extreme south of Texas, along the Rio Grande and adjacent barrier islands.

The pitch-blackness of the night camouflages the bats, so they can be hard to see. But you can certainly hear them: listen for their echolocation, which sounds like "clicks" and "chirping."

To you and anyone else: I will no longer debate the sub-points relating to coconuts, insects, etc anymore in this thread. Private message me if you want to continue discussing these topics.

Looking at the forecast for Biloxi, you're going to have some nights in the upper 40s early next week. That's pretty cold.
