I was feeling your pain today down in Kissimmee/St.Cloud area of Florida. Not sure yet what the high was down here today but here's a good sign it was as hot or hotter, as of 5:38pm it was 96 degrees, and that's at a time of day things are supposed to be cooling down. We live on a lake and the water level is down at least 3-4 feet than normal. We're in need of rain terribly.


I'm not far from you,it was brutal today.It has been for the last few days and it's going to be for the next week.All the lakes around me are really low as well.I'm already sick of the heat.

Can't take the heat?

Get out of the kitchen!

I don't feel sorry for people who have this problem. Where I live, people think that moving to Florida will solve all their weather problems.

That is, until they encounter hurricanes and extreme heat.

Anyone moving here who thinks it'll solve weather problems is an idiot.I regret moving here.I only did so because of a job.I miss having all 4 seasons that's for sure.I've been lucky though,no hurricanes since I've been here.

Yes, let me grab the thousands of dollars I have sitting around my house.
One thing people learn about Florida is that it is hell. I hear the same stories from so many people. They get here, become broke, find a lousy job, and cannot afford to escape. I, on the other hand, was born here, currently attend college, and am broke… if I could move out of Florida; it would have been done already.

I think you nailed it.A lot of people have this illusion that Florida is nothing but beaches and sunshine and think everything is just peachy all the time.That's not even close to reality.The economy here is terrible.It's bad everywhere but it seems to be way worse here.The jobs that are available pay nothing.I got lucky with mine as it pays pretty well.I've already started to save to head back north.I refuse to raise my daughter here.

I probably should have thrown in note that I wasn't specifically targeting you.

But I do often wonder about people who move there with lofty expectations, only to become trapped.

I miss shoveling snow!


There's nothing redeeming about Florida trust me.

Bad economy..horrific crime..traffic...smelly water..hurricanes..tornados.

In other words...Florida sucks.
