Well ya like temps in the 90's and lows near 80 and dew points in the mid 70's along with ringing humidity, then you are correct. In my case i get sick of it for 5 solid months with very little rain.

In an area that averages 50 inches of rain in a year, I find it quite laugable that it does not rain on your neighborhood.

If you are sick of the heat:
1. What brought you here.

2. What keeps you here.

How can anyone continue to live in a place where the weather does not suit them?

I was born here in Tampa for one. Two, i am stuck with a house that was worth 800k on the gulf that can't be sold for anywhere near $250k.

And number three i am working on. Queensland down under here i come.

Anytime you want to see pics of my weather records and rainfall amounts i am more than happy to send them.

Well, there are 3 great reasons! One of them you can't change, two you can. What was "worth" 800k a few years ago isn't ever going to be "worth" 800k in your life time so good luck on that one.

Queensland can be a whole lot like FL in certain areas.

No need for pics of your records, but seems quite strange overall that you get so little rain in your particular spot.

I guess FL wasn't so distasteful when you bought the house.

It grinds my gears when I hear people say that they love the cold weather. If they love the cold weather they can live in one of the other 45 (or so) states that is freezing cold during the winter.

Florida is supposed to be always hot

ANYWAY, can't complain with 79 degrees today.

I haven't used AC for months. I do leave my windows open all day, though, and it's fantastic!
