Its kinda warm up here in Canada as well,although by Florida standards it would be considered cold we are having a problem keeping ice on our outdoor ice rinks, so far this year i;m still running around with nothing more than a hoody for a winter coat..It certainly seems to be getting warmer all over the country winter or summer. You dont suppose.....

It never even started. Once the upper levels change we will get some shots at cooler weather. I told you guys months ago not to expect much a winter this year.

I hope it's not over.......typically, February is a cold month down here. Like I've said before....the longer I live here- the more I hope and wish for some kind of a "winter" to break things up a bit. Contrary to what some believe, year after year after year of basically endless heat and humidity get old.....it takes a while, but it gets old.....at least for me it has.

It's kinda the same thing you here from people who live up North..."I used to not mind the winter-but as the years go by..I've just become tired of it and tired of dealing with it".

I think it might be different if you move down here after living most of your life up North.....then, you probably think the endless summer (with a few tiny breaks) is the best thing since sliced bread. Even if you do enventually get sick of it....at that point you're most likely to old to re-locate again- I get it.

However, I think...(for me anyway) that being here with (hopefully) many, many years to live has given me more than enough time for the luster of Florida's weather (and the state itself) to wear thin on me.

As someone who's spent 21 of my 35 years on this Earth in Florida..........I definately am hoping for a "winter" this year....and every year I continue to live here.

you people do realize the milder the winter, the worse the crop season will be right? While im sure its nice for you noobs, for FL natives this is not a good sign.

This and if the ocean doesn't cool down, it'll only feed into hurricanes.

Sure sounds like my predicament some 40 years ago..I got tired of waiting for Florida to get cooler and instead moved to Canada.

Agreed. A little bit of chilly weather is good. This "winter" has been undesirable.

Today was amazing.
That's what I do each day and I agree, it's been amazing. I guess after living my whole life in a place with rotten weather the majority of the time Florida weather is just a joy to behold. I hope I never lose this sense of wonder and appreciation.
