Well said Sherry !! I grew

Well said Sherry !! I grew up in Martinsville, VA that being said I have seen hot summers and butt freezing winter's, ice storms, drought's,etc. My husband and I lived in South Carolina for 4 years on the ocean, before that we lived in Greensboro, NC for 2 years.... And Pueblo, Colorado for 8 years now. We spent the month of AUGUST in Titusville FL and LOVED IT SO MUCH !!! We are retired now and moving HOME to Titusville within the next few weeks ! We couldn't be happier to get back to the South East and the coast. And let me say that no matter what state we have been in there are people who are both friendly & generous or sour & spiteful what a shame, also we have seen people who didn't care a fig how there yards, houses looked or were/weren't card for. Crime and child snatchers, molesters, etc I am deeply sorry to say IS Nationwide and on the rise. I have met people of all nationalities, age groups, economic backgrounds, religions and sat down and had a wonderful dinner one evening with a homeless man on my right side and a wealthy man on my left side, what a lovely and stimulating conversation we 3 had !!! So please people don't jump to conclusions ! As my Father used to say when he was living if the coat dosent fit you, Take it off and try on another till it feels good ! Meaning if you're not happy with your situation, sit down and have a talk with YOURSELF and make a plan to change the situation.

As a native of Florida I have one question why are your still here? Your "facts" are so incorrect.


I agree with a huge portion of what u said...even tho u said it a few months ago. I moved here just over 20 years ago with my small child to get him away from an abusive situation & I had family here & cost of living cheap. The number of predators here is insane. When my ex got behind on child support I was told florida was a 'transient' state so basically good luck enforcing the court order. People move in & out of here so much & around the state & are homeless to hard to keep track of them. My ex lived in NY state in a house for 20 yrs. Go figure. It gets very hot here & I have heard natives, snow birds & transplants ALL complain about it so for the people all saying how they love it....u don't love it all the time. Cuz I like it here....wouldn't live anywhere else but some days the heat gets to me. And the people that talk about all the theme parks.....those are extremely expensive....not cost effective for alot of people & even more prohibitive for single parents. As far as this being a litigious state? I'm not sure if it is more than any other but going by the tv & radio....u may be right....and the kids on mental disability? Omg! I know too many....the ones that bother me are the ones that are collecting than sit on their butts all day playing video games & smoking weed & never see a doctor or get treatment for their 'disability' & I know a few.... Wasn't that 1 of Trump's platforms? To look at people(esp the kids on ssi) & reevaluate whether they actually deserved it.... Off my soapbox now. But before moving to Florida make sure you think about it. And always remember that unless you have acres of land & no neighbors....your yard is not a junkyard..

The 3 Weather Zones of FLA

Florida has three distinct weather zones - North, Central and South. North - FL-GA state line to Ocala, Central - The Villages to Lake Okeechobee and South - everything south. The Gulf has a huge effect on the central sections weather. When prevailing winds are from the west this sets up the predictable summer monsoon. The north is affected by the large land mass to the north and west with the expected class of warm and moist with dry at Jacksonville most afternoons. The south is basically the Caribbean and will be the first to get storms and flow from the east. I've lived her most of life and the "old-timers" always told me that the FL weather cycle is about 40 years long (give or take 2 or 3 years). This is the pattern I remember from about 40 years ago - rain, rain, rain and a hurricane (David) in Central Florida.

South Florida rain

I was born & raised here and my Mother before me. I remember in the mid and late 60's you could set your watch by the daily afternoon rain storms
And when it changed and they didn't come it was sad. It had gaven relief from the heat. In '83 I bought a snack bar on a golf course. That winter it rained (every day) all day the whole winter. My only customers were workers. In early 70's we had a Christmas hitting 98. The red melted off the
candy canes on the tree. In '77 we had snow one day early a.m. Early 80's we had a Christmas it was a low of 28 in the daytime. My Mother and her family wintered here every year. Some winters they went swimming in January and some winters they had to light the turpentine heaters against bitter cold It is weather. I remember the same type of changes throughout the country. So sorry people are unhappy bur that is weather.
have to take the bad with the good. All good wishes!!!

florida weather

depends where you live in florida.january-april had wonderfull cold nights.was 22 in april.than bam it was 80'.west central fl.has completely different weather than say south florida.
have lived here off and on for 50 yrs and the last ten or so its been very dry.normal is drenching rain daily in june and july.we are not out of the drought.flooding doesn't mean you have had "enough" rain just that it came too fast and crappy drainage.
florida is massivelly overpopulated and overbuilt.the power plants cant keep up and are falling apart.the watertable is disappearing.resources in general are being depleted.

Far far the worst year in

Far far the worst year in Florida everyday rain rain rain been here for 28 years and moving back to the North East this year thank God

Do whatever makes you happy

having you move back to the northeast doesn't bother me in the least, one less car on the road in the winter.

Good, spare yourself the

Good, spare yourself the wrath of Florida (except the panhandle, it's nice there)

Wet Wet Wet

We have lived in Florida going on 7 years and this years is by far the wettest year ever. It has rained non-stop since the end of April and we have had 2 days that are dry and are predicted for rain for every day at 60% or higher for every single day until Oct. 2018. There are 2 other days in August with 3% rain. This is definitely, not the norm for our area. At this point here in sunny Florida it can no longer be called that. So where on earth is the Farmers Almanac even close to the truth in saying that we are below normal or normal Precipitation? I used to rely on this but NO LONGER, you are so far off it isn't even funny. Lets at least get close, like you use to be.
