I live in the area effected by the storm...Thank GOD b/c were into a 8 year drought...we need this very badly. The fire hazard has been off the chart for months.

Everytime I read about this storm I get Sailor Moon's theme song in my head. It's sooo annoying.

But seriously, I hope it does as little damage as possible.

Word on the street is the people of Jacksonville have been reduced to cannibalism.

Or the people of Miami, I forget which.

Yup, my moms pond in gainesville dried up last fall... its been close a few times in the past 15 years, but this time it really went and did it. I joke with her that she needs to spend lots of $ on plants/trees for her new yard area - and they'll grow great! - but once she does we'll get 5 hurricanes in a season and she'll have her pond back for another 60-75 years...

I maintain swimming pools in Florida. I wear headphones, swimming trunks, maybe flip flops, maybe a t-shirt, (definitely no pants, button down shirt, or tie) when I am "working" (very easily) in beautiful weather. When I am not at "work", the beach, or on a boat, I wear shorts and a t-shirt or nothing (MANY nudist resorts around here). When I "work", I am surrounded by bikinis. When I am not "working" I am surrounded by bikini tops, short shorts, halter tops, midriffs, or at worse, sundresses, 300+ days a year. There is no need for long sleeve shirts, sweat shirts, coats, hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, mufflers, boots, snow shoes, heaters, et cetera. Hell, I haven't even owned a pair of jeans for over seven years.

I choose to ride a bicycle in beautiful weather nearly every day, year round. When it rains [never any snow (the worst four letter word in the language)], I ride the bus. Therefore, I don't spend money on gasoline (that's enough incentive right there), oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, brake pads, antifreeze / coolant, numerous repairs / upkeep on a car, insurance (another biggie), registration, license tag, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. The most upkeep I have is to occasionally replace a tube ($6.00) and brake pads ($10.00), and some chain oil (It's been so long since I bought it, I can't remember the nominal cost. A bottle last for years.)

Yes, it is very depressing living in paradise. I would not recommend it to anyone. Really, I'm serious - DON'T come down here. Stay up north - PLEASE!

Truth. Although the rain caused an oak on the creek to fall, which killed my internet connection for 3 hours and I had to live LIKE AN ANIMAL.

/My pal's property, which should probably technically be a wetland, is still bone dry. All the lake ramps are dry. The ditches are dry.

FYI -- A lot of people down here don't use their air conditioner. I spend the majority of my time outdoors - there is ALWAYS something to do. I mainly use my house just to get a few hours of sleep, then I am gone again. I don't even HAVE an air conditioner in my house, which I have lived in for twelve years. It was probably built in the 20s-30s. I just leave the eighteen jalousie windows open, and let the sea breeze flow through. On the very rare occasions when I might need a little bit more relief, I simply rinse off in a cold shower, remain naked, and I'm good. In EXTREME occasions, I'll put an ice pack on my head. It also works great on top of the pillow at night. I don't have a swimming pool myself, but most houses down here do. I maintain them for a living and can cool off during "work" by jumping in. However, I do I have the Gulf of Mexico just a few yards away. There are LOTS of ways to enjoy Florida WITHOUT resorting to air conditioning!


BTW -- My electric bill is around $25 - $30 a month. Fark air conditioners!

Erm where in Florida do you live? I lived in Pensacola for 5 years and it got so hot it was incapacitating. From June to September you cannot do anything because it is too hot. The beach was not actually that close to town either. I don't think anywhere else in Florida is any different as soon as you get about a mile or two inland. Unless you are extremely rich or live in no-mans land, beach front property is not really a possibility. Plus, the beach is really only fun so many times (it is beautiful though).

Of course, beach front property has its own set of problems, namely hurricanes. I'd rather put up with a little snow, which can be a pain in the ass to drive in, than hurricanes that destroy property and leave you without power for days on end. I was living in Pensacola when Ivan struck. It is not fun waiting and wondering if your entire life is about to be uprooted and being able to do nothing about it.
 
2012-05-29 08:46:34 AM
Yeah, my advice is also to stay out of Florida. I want so desperately to move back to NE Ohio. I miss shoveling snow so bad, fixing rust spots on my vehicles, cutting firewood. Yeah, you don't want to come down here. It might get to 95 this week. Way to hot for you.

My completely anecdotal experience is if you have been raised at a certain temperature, you have an intolerance for anything higher or colder, no matter how long you have lived in the new environment. In NC, the faculty members from El Salvador and Florida are freezing through the winter, while those from Montana, Wyoming, Illinois, keep the AC cranked down to 72 from May through September. I was born in raised in Maine, lived in L.A. for twenty years and NEVER got used to the heat. From May to November I would have to sleep from 11:00 to 3:00 because I simply could not take it. Now in NC, I still keep the AC cranked down much of the year. I can't sleep otherwise.

So. It's the same in SoCal except: The temperature never gets above 90 degrees (80 by the beach). If you want snow in the winter, there are ski resorts less than 50 miles away, plus naked people on drugs don't eat your face.
