To most people, Florida means seaside relaxation, beautifully landscaped golf courses, awesome fishing and waterfront properties with a semi tropical climate! In the weather world, Florida plays by a different set of guidelines than the rest of the country. “Predictably, residents shivering in northern towns began to turn their eyes toward the red on the map, and as the 80-degree highs were forced further south, Florida stood strong in frustrating the rest of the country to no end.”
Florida, known for the beautiful warm weather, the sand between your toes, and the total leisure bundle, The Sunshine State, is just lounging in the temperateness, dodging from cold fronts and snow storms, while the rest of the country freezes it’s... Oranges... off!
The time of year has come again as Floridians have just pleasantly settled in for the winter phase. Now, as the days slip closer to the holidays, the letters are filled with messages with a smile: “It’s still 80 degrees and sunny here. Thought you’d like to know that, and mail it with a heartless chuckle.” Post cards, letters, and word of mouth spread the amazing Florida Dream up north.
If you're getting a bit queasy by South Florida's magnificent and ideal weather during the winter months, the next week will only be overkill, says Nick Wiltgen, weather.com meteorologist.
As you are Florida dreaming, consider making a trip down to South Florida, a path to endless summer!
“You win, Florida. You always do!”
