SOM--every time a new poster asks a general question about CC, I'm going to copy and paste your post--it pretty much sums it all up.

And I have lots of "God, I love it here, I can spend the rest of my life here" moments.
I had one of those moments this morning. I was coming into work and there's a slightly cool breeze from the north. Palm trees were contrasted against the bluest of blue skies and pelicans were wheeling in the breeze. We have to struggle through 3 months of heat and humidity, but what a payoff!

Thanks for the compliment!


My most recent "God, I love it here moment" was this week, I threw my bike and my youngest son's bike in the car and went to Swatner Park. We rode around a little (he just learned to ride), and he was thrilled by the "hills". We stopped to rest along the water, the sun was going down, the sky was ablaze in orange and purple, the city lights were coming up, you could see the dark silhouettes of palm trees against the sky....<sigh>

Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think we have had a single 100 degree day this summer. Its been 98 or 99 a couple of times and the heat index has gotten up to 118, but the actual temperature hasn't hit 100 this year.

This was August at the airport. In town add a degee or three. This was a record breaking year for heat though and is way out of the norm.
