Gay, Poor Old Man

Cities & Towns > 4 Seasons in Florida!

4 Seasons in Florida!

The old joke goes that we have 4 seasons in South Florida: 1) early bird season (they go cheap, cheap) 2) snow bird season (the Yankees and French Canadians invade us) 3)hurricane/rainy season and 4) hot, humid summer! The last one is true and lasts 6 months while we have 1-2 weeks of winter usually in January and/or February when temperatures can drop into the 60s and even, a night or two, into the 50s and Spring, with high temperatures in the upper 70s, generally from late March to early May and, last but not least, is Autumn, as you can see in the pictures above, when all the Queen Crepe Myrtle trees lose their leaves, lasting through October and early November! No, I don't miss the snow, ice, freezing temperatures of November to March nor the summers in New York city where the temps are usually higher than down here or the times I have to tell Chuck and Terry to come down here when we are cooler (lower 80s) than they are in Memphis (in the 90s)! By the way I will take the 'wet' heat of the southeast versus the 'dry' heat of the southwest where you will burn your hand faster and deeper reaching the car door handle to open it! Excuse me as I have to go out and help them rake the leaves---in the rain!

I believe I could take summer all year round but not the steaminess.

90% of the day you are in air conditioning whether home, car, stores,etc. In fact you will find most women carry sweaters in the summertime!

You knew what winter was... once.... a long time ago.... I think I need winter to make summer count for something.
