I dont know what people expected when the moved to the most southern state in the USA. Its called sub tropical and heat and humidity go with being sub tropical. Anyone who moved here and expected 70-80 degree
day time temps in July must not have thought it out too much or ever visited the area before moving here.

A couple of weeks ago there was a few days of low humidity and high 70s and low 80s, now that was perfect weather. It was high humidity and high temps well into Nov last year.

To be honest with you this seems to be the norm. It is not like you see some drastic or even a gradual change here.

Me myself, im loving the weather here..though today was a little cool, not exactly great beach weather but i will take it over the foggy and constantly miserable beach weather you experience all summer long back in Cali.

Can't wait until it warms up again..love it

Spend a couple winters further north where you are battling snow and ice..that sucks..you will be back..unless you love misery..

I hear you there. I had to turn on the heat this evening at about 630 P.M. to get the chill out of the house. My northern originating friends have their windows open.

lol.. i dono about turning on the heat but even when i was in the area checking things out, in Sept., id turn off the air conditioner in the hotel i was staying in..The heat/humidity just wasn't all that bad..ok, i will admit i did turn it on one night just to circulate the air...lol

While dry heat can be somewhat refreshing for a short time, i could feel all of the moisture being sucked out of me most of the time i was back home, during the summer..But i agree that for some folks, even with a constant breeze, the humidity can get to you here..Especially farther away from the coast..

Living in KS. in the past, i can say that that type of stagnent heat melts you..and im sure that it can get pretty bad in places like Orlando at times..

Yes, inland, like Orlando, doesnt get the sea breeze you get on the coasts so it is more tropical feeling. I lived on Okinawa for a couple of years and the summer weather here is so reminicent of the weather on Okinawa. I love it. Yes, good to circulate the air in the cooler times, but the a/c goes off like you said.

Some people just hate it here so much. I dont understand what keeps them here. Complain, complain and still live here. What a miserable way to live.

Completely agree with your statement...misery loves company i guess..and while ive never been to the far east..or south east, ive had friends and relatives who would make the same comparison..i also love it..Beats snow and wet cold foggy beach weather any time... and im arriving during the fall/winter months..
