I used to live in FL.
It was just brutal.
I thought I would love the heat and prefer no snow, turns out, I would rather be too hot than too cold anyday. The FL heat and humidity was just horrible. I was sweaty and sticky all year long. I kept waiting for the weather to cool down. I couldn’t labor outside in my gardens, go for a run or even prefer my modern home swimming pool. The heat made it impossible to just breathe. Moving to Spokane Washington was 1 of the best decisions I ever made, but for 1, the summers are so mild, however june is basically the only month that you need an a/c. It is nice since I only bother with a window a/c in my family room and a portable A/C unit in my study room. It is cheap and effective for cooling in my area. The winters are obviously much colder in Washington. I don’t mind them at all. I can go outside and breathe normally. I just need to bundle up a bit and keep moving. I am able to rake my leaves, weed my gardens and run in the cold air much easier. I actually care about that I can rely on my modern home heating idea too. In FL I just ran the A/C all year except for the dead of winter. My heating system hardly got used! Now in Washington, 4 to several months of the year my heating unit actually gets to work. It is unbelievable working outside in the cold and then coming into the toasty warm modern home and sitting by my fireplace.
