I moved to Florida a few years ago for several reasons, one of which was not the tax benefits for retirees. However, now that Im getting closer to that point, I think I may just stay here. Interestingly enough, this summer has been more comfortable than 60% of the CONUS. Yesterday evening I spent outside mowing the majority of my 10 acres, and it was just gorgeous, cool, breezy, and I didnt break a sweat. I even opened the windows for a while. Have had plenty of rain, grass is growing like crazy. And once we get into mid-October, I wont trade anyone our weather for a good 6 months. I had several hurricanes pass over me in 2005, was tolerable, no damage, tho I did lose electric several times due to downed trees. You know, Florida is a very big state, so likely isnt wise to paint Florida with a broad brush. Mid to northern Florida can get very cold nights in the winter; the beauty of that is it will get up to 70 that same day. Love it.
