the weather. give me hot n sticky over snow any day.

im miserable in anything below 60 degrees. FL baby all my life (well 97% of it lol). :-D

Being able to say "Im so sick of Disney"...when many get to go maybe once or twice in a lifetime. And vowing to never pay to go there again because you know atleast 1 person that works at each themepark.

I loved Rock springs, big tree, wekiva springs, closeness to Miami, Clearwater, exploring the woods and swamps when I lived there. The worst is the weather and the tourist traps. Oh and don't forget the Manatees! very cool

I know what you mean about not paying to get into Disney. I always find a way to get free tickets.

It was 80 degrees today, I talked with a guy from Wisconsin who said it was 20 degrees there at the same time. I love that.

Another person I spoke to today asked me what kind of shoes I wore last, I had to stop and think because its been a couple days since I had a pair on and then it was sandals.

Warm weather, plenty to do IMO not far from the beach and other natural areas like ocala national forest etc. Family and everything I need is close by.

Lizards, palm trees, How you can plant flowers and plants in jan and feb and they grow because it`s warm.
