    Great post! The fresh fish in FL is amazing. Anyone who's ever grilled up a 10 oz genuine florida red snapper with  olive oil, lemon, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper knows what you mean!

    "They ah...get a nice sea breeze" !!! That's hilarious man! How much does Disney in July suck?!?!? Waiting in lines of 100 plus people in 95 degree stifling air.




    You get it.  It's not for everyone.  I hated having to pay winter storage for my boat when I lived in New England. Pay extra and not use your boat.  But I love New England.  Hell, I'm there working right now.

    I love everything about the water.  I love going to spring training games.  I live in west central Florida.  Sure the summer is long and it gets humid.  But the hottest I have been in years was about 5 years ago in Bar Harbor when it was 100 degrees on the weekend I was there.  Yikes, the AC was poor to nonexistent there. (but I love Maine) Two years ago I was in Denver in the summer. One hundred and five degrees the first five days I was there.  Dry heat my azz.  Pretty place.  Could use a few trees.

    It has never reached 100 degrees in Tampa since they started recording such things.  It's not a perfect place but if it's right for you that's great. 

    Rusty is in a good place in the Carolinas.  I have worked there and just love the Carolinas.  Especially the low country of South Carolina.    

    Make the best of where you are.  Wherever you are is the best place to be.  For me, Florida is great around the edges.

    Yeah I like it up north too. I can't imagine a better scenario then living the snow bird life. 6 months in south FL, and 6 months(spring to fall!) Back home in Mass. That's our goal. Im hoping it can happen soon!

    Look at Reach Around Rusty bringing on Melly for backup. 



    Never fails.  Every time he gets too deep in his own doo, suddenly a supporter appears.

    Anyone tired of it? I live in Maine so snow is commonplace but enough is enough! We're getting another foot or two tonight.

    I do feel bad for you southerners because you don't have the equipment to deal with it like us northerners. Something I don't hear talked about is tires. Good tread on your tires is the trick to getting around. Nothing works on icy roads, though.

    Anyone have any horror stories?



    Late to the party, but, this is not a horrow story but one for the books.

    Here in Maryland, does not take much snow at all to cancel school.  But, I have seen it happen on more than one occasion in which school is cancelled BEFORE the snow is to start and it doesn't happen!  That's right, the forecast would call for snow to start after schools start with conditions deteriorating as the day progresses, so school is cancelled.  Then, the weather man says "oops", the front never materialized as expected.  A beautiful day ensues.  For someone from NH who would brag that we walked to school 2 miles, up hill both ways, in a foot of snow, this takes the cake.

    Good plan.  It seems to be working backasswards for me right now.  I have spent the last three winters up North because of work assignments.  I'm not complaining, life is good.  But a little more time at home in the winter would be nice.

    That's the story that I told my kids too!  I stole it from Bill Cosby :)

    Outside of this..  current retirement plans are to move to the Charleston/Pawley's Island SC geographic area in 4 - 5 years.

    Gotta love the weather prognosticators. Talk about easy money. The foot or two they were predicting here last night turned into about 6 to 8 inches. Just a flurry.

    The way a foot or two for up north is spoken about is equal to how the Maryland weather folks talks about 2 - 3 inches!  Stay home and watch the flakes!!  (((-:
