I know those of you who are starting to freeze up North think that I am bragging, but summer in South Florida -- with its 90 degree weather, almost 100% humidity, daily thunderstorms, and threat of hurricanes (although there is a small chance we can get them for another month) is ending this week.
Its been this way since May. After 5 months of this weather, you want a break!
A drenching tropical front is moving through, and by Wednesday night the weather should finally fall below 70 degrees for the first time in 5 months. Hallelujah! The $270.00 a month electric bills for air conditioning in a two bedroom apartment should end too!
Now, from about November 1 -- the end of March, the entire world wants to come here. The weather is generally perfect, excpet for a few weeks around New Years, except for a week or two around New Years its beach weather every day. The roads are crowded, the restaurants harder to get into, and tourists are everywhere -- so the five months of summer beforehand are worth it.
