"this is spring isnt it"


^^^ I dunno, you tell me. It's only March and it was hot here in FL today. It was like 85 or 86 today and high humidity, already. We walked around the block today at like 5pm and we were actually kind of sweaty when we got back, and it was just around the block. Now, we have to wait until October (maybe November) for those cool temps to return. Hey, only 7-8 more months (seriously) away from those cool temps, lol!

thats ok I grew up in Brooklyn NY im no stranger to heat and humidity, as it doesnt bother me any...bring it on...we are sick of any kind of winter....We prefer Warmth compared to any type of Cold...and again so many people go back t where they came from and find it isnt always the answer..good luck to you going back to any cold u are going too.. to each as own...I wouldnt live in NY or NJ ever again, however I have nothing bad to say other than the cost of living...for us it was a lifestyle change...people love living there just as people in Florida love there as well....

Are you kidding? I don't know where you live, but during the day here today it's going to be a a max high of 80 with 50% humidity and a breeze. That's not exactly "hot" unless you're from Maine. Right now it's 8:30 AM and its 69 degrees.

At night it will be in the 60s. The REAL humidity doesn't "turn on" around here until late April or May, when you can feel a palpable change in the weather that lasts all day and night.

Yes, it cooled down nicely lastnight. Caught me by suprise after a hot and humid walk around the block at around 5pm. But summer temps are basically from April through October, which is 7 months.

I put the real start of summer when the humidity turns on in May. The end is typically mid-October, though remembering back to conditions on Halloweens past it can be hit or miss.

6 months of beautiful weather, 6 months of hot weather. Oh well.


I wonder if people who move to the Caribbean complain as much about the weather as those that move to Florida?

I grew up in Greensboro, NC. My wife and I now live in Denver, but we are planning to move to either Loxahatchee or Jupiter this year.

My mom really wants us to move to Raleigh, but it's just not for us.

South Florida is about the only place in the continental US with a real tropical climate. My wife is Vietnamese American, and we both love tropical weather. We can't wait to plant obscene amounts of fruit trees and grow most of our own food. We're huge gardeners, and we love all the fruits from the tropics. We can't wait!

I am buying a beachfront property in Jupiter,but one HUGE factor affects my closing date..my son's asthma/allergy problems.
Spent a great deal of time on where to go to help him...smaller towns in New Mexico,Arizona,Southern Utah and the Atlantic Ocean..Jupiter.
Data is so varied from medical establishment,that I am torn between Carefree,Arizona and Jupiter.
I am retired and can go anywhere to help him.The urgency is to get away from Pittsburgh area..which despite 95% of factories gone..the AIR IS THE WORST IN AMERICA...it is a long story as to how and why....but we are OUT.Any help?

My goodness, you can buy half of the property,own half of the town in Jupiter for 500K !
You don't need to spend even a fraction of that amount for a nice home.
YOu do have to love heat...and lots of it....small town amenities, as in no accross the board quality of life. You will have to drive to go to Costco...drive to a great restaurant....drive for good shopping.
If you are used to a good standard of life, and enjoy having things closer to you, you just have to locate near a major metropolitan area.
Forget jobs...they have none.
High taxes will thrill you as well.
Point is that it is a great place to live if you can handle the various downsides.
Did I mention how far it will be to a functional airport?
