Yeah, I apologize for the rant lol it just sounds stupid to me that people think its weird that people don't know how to drive in snow in a place where it normally doesn't snow.

People who drive in snow don't know how to drive in snow either. Generally, 95% of the population are morons and Florida is no different.

Well, we definitely know how to drive in snow, but then again, due to our age, going on 70, we're not "speed freaks" in rain or snow. Both of our vehicles have All-Terrain tires and 4-wheel drive, from when we lived in Colorado. Never had a problem driving there.

Last year I had a long commute in Chicago area, which had me worried, and it never snowed during the drive all winter.

I look forward to living in Florida where I don't really need to worry about snow. Winter really sux.

I really don't know about your "winter really sux". There are tons of people across the U.S. that live, and survive, in "Snowbelt" areas. We did for 5 1/2 years and are going back.

Sure, the grass is always greener on the other side. We've just had a cold snap for the last few weeks and it becomes a chore just to go outside and check the mailbox it's so cold. You find yourself not doing a lot of normal things because of the cold.

But it seems like you are ready for some more winter, and if it makes you happy, that is great. I wish you only the best.

Its kind of annoying when taking the trash to the curb if you aren't wearing gloves but its not that big a deal. It's -4 out and I was out taking a video with my phone earlier, no gloves. Not the worst thing in the world. Better than sticky humid weather that lasts past Halloween, IMO.

The roads here are always fine. Even if we get a storm, the plows are out and about as soon as possible. Lately we haven't gotten more than an inch snowfalls. Not even a need to plow as the traffic melts the snow from the roads. Granted where I live isn't the snowbelt as we don't get lake effect, we just get bitter arctic cold for a few weeks on and off. At least we have white Christmases and 4 seasons. Wouldn't move back to FL for anything

"Wouldn't move back to Florida for anything". Why did you leave Florida? We don't think so, but many in Florida, or even Jacksonville, think the State and city are "Utopia"........best city and State in the entire U.S..
