That's OK, I lived in Orlando for 17 years and we could set our watches by the 4p.m. storms starting in June and going through September.
Orlando had some big ones. The sea breezes would collide right there.

I moved from NY to Miami and did not have any problem with the temp when I moved down.

Everyone is different in how they adjust and what they like.

True, and obviously I am not denying that there are some people like you, but every tranplant I have ever known that was previously acclimated to a temperate climate needed a lot more than a couple of weeks to adjust to the subtropics. And I have known a lot of transplants.

Give Danashores a shot if ya can afford it and maybe you will see what i mean. Maybe it's me that blocks the rain. I lived in Danashores for 41 years then moved to the Pasco gulf coast i thought to myself it can't be as dry as Danashores and sure enough we get even less where i am in Pasco. Winter type or wide spread rain we see with cold fronts i get about the same as everyone else.

The summer type T- storms is another story, local amounts can vary alot, just a mile away it can be flooding and not a drop at my house.

I have over 30 years of rainfall amounts to prove it.

I have lived in this area since i was born in 1963 and just hate the summers. Guess i am getting older and can't take the heat like i did when i was younger.

Give me a high of 73 and a low of 62 everyday of the year.

No doubt about it, tastes change over time. I have a brother in Broward who was thinking of leaving FL for TN when he retires. After the chill down there this winter he decided to stay in FL because it would be too darn cold in TN for him, so he just figured out. Oh well.


Sounds like you want San Diego CA.

What was the rainfall amount in July 1957 here?

No way i would live in San diego CA. There are more non whites , gangs and crime than there is in Port Richey with even worse traffic.

I want Glades or Hendry county out away from everyone a good 20 miles.

There's been plenty of times where I saw it rain on one side of the street and not the other. It has to stop somewhere.

Where I live it pours, but my parents out in Wesley Chapel rarely get rain when I do.

Were you able to find that 2 hour stretch where it is over 90 degrees, 80% humidity, dew point in the high 70's and not raining?
