That's how I look at it. Merry Christmas.
Okay! Merry glass-half-full Christmas!

I WAS crazy to move to the Sunbelt as someone who hates sun and summer.

There wasn't sun and summer in New York? I always thought there was...

You moved to a part of the sunbelt where it is always warm...the majority of the sunbelt isn't like where you live.

Well of course it's going to slow down at some point - it almost HAS to.

Those states had smaller populations and were growing at 20-30% per decade. Now they have millions and millions of people. Do you really want Florida growing at 33% from its current population for the next thirty years?? 42 million people? It's already packed in South Florida - that would just be hell.

Growing by a few million people over time is different than shoving in 10 million with no infrastructure or stable schools, etc. to handle everyone.

there was summer in NY, but it was only a couple of months. I didn't like it.

I lived here before, and KNEW what it was like to miss NY, and family. Just waiting for the right time to move back. I am in NY with my daughter for the Holidays. I SO do not want to go BACK to Florida.

Add the very high unemployment here, it doesn't surprise me people are leaving.
You SO do not want to go BACK to Florida and you haven't wanted to for quite a while now. You've become incredibly, irritatingly so, vocal about this. You've been waiting for the right time to move back after making such a huge mistake.

So with all this, it's still overall better for you in Florida? As in, you can't find decent employment or an adequate quality of life back home? If not, then what can possibly be holding you back?

I would not want to live in no other place in the US but the sunbelt region. I love it here in this part of the region and would regret having to move up north.. If I was not in Georgia, then Texas would be my next home.
