I admit that I have never lived in a super hot climate year round but we have had summers that have hit the high 90's and it was fantastic....there is always a way to cool off (pool, beach, sprinkler, ice cold margarita, etc) but in order to warm up I have to wear two pairs of socks, turtle neck with a hoodie and crank the heat. I feel like the kid from A Christmas Story all bundeled up in a suit unable to move. Can't wait to wear flip flops most of the year.

1. I sooo agree about the drivers! We have them here too. They drive like maniacs in bad weather, or think because they have a truck they are invincible. NOT!!! Then they get into an accident and wonder why.

2. I had to LOL at this. When I wear a coat I can barely move and HATE it. I hate wearing coats to begin with the, then trying manuever around in them. Reminds me of being a kid and getting bundled up to go and play in the snow. I am a flip-flop kinda girl too.

Ha! I always imagined if I fell in the snow I would just be flopping around because I wouldn't be able to get myself up.

Do you not sweat? If I was your manager and you came to work stinking of the great outdoors, I'd tell you to clock out and go home.

This may not sound all that unusual, but keep in mind that I don't wear the typical "Florida wear," either. I wear long pants and shoes twelve months out of the year. And I don't think twice about wearing flannel in July.

I know that my preferences are unusual and not everyone can stand the heat, but it's frustrating when someone willingly moves here and then complains about how hot it gets.

Everyone seems to really enjoy telling me how horrible the heat in the summer is. I can see how this might be for many people, but I am SO cold all the time. I am very happy around 85* and humidity doesn't bother me. I imagine I will be hot when it hangs out around 90*, but I'm hoping it isn't unbearable, and I can always hang out in the AC.

Is there anyone who doesn't mind heat like that? I'm hopeful that it's possible! (Or am I kidding myself?)
It's a lot easier if you have access to a pool.

And what happens when I get out of the pool, do you not get hot anymore? You can't stay in the pool all day. Some people have work to do. And as far as the Margarita solution, not everyone drinks either. And wearing shorts and flip flops isn't an option either when you have to meet with business clients. But hey, "No shoes, no shirt, no problem". Sing along with me rednecks!

This does not bode terribly well. I hope he adjusts quickly.
I told you that he was going to hate it. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Nope, I get there early with plenty of time to cool down and freshed up. Never a problem whatsoever.

There is no weather station in Danashores itself, and again local amounts will vary from just a mile from place to place with summer type T- storms buddy.


I have over 30 years of rainfall records where i have lived.

Anytime you wanna compare rainfall records lets meet up.
