    I grew up in the 1940s, BAC, before air conditioning. I like talking about weather with cowboys, ranchers, construction workers, farmers. I was visiting with a Yankee who moved to Miami and said he moved for the weather. I laughed and said, "The weather sucks unless you're going from your air conditioned condo to your air conditioned car to the air conditioned mall and back again." He sat a minute and said, "That's about it." Most of the environmentalist I meet don't have a clue.

    Most people I ask why they retired to fla, say to get away from ice and snow and high taxs and cost of living.

    I was born and raised in Fl, I hate cold weather and love to sweat. Only when it gets above 90 with high humidity and no wind, do I get uncomfortable. Cold is painfull. Kin folk said "jed move away from there!"
    I don't know a lot, but what I do know about, I know a lot about.

    Northern Wisconsin here where it gets cold and snowy. We know how to tough such things out. Wimps need not come here.

    And 50 degrees can be cold or warm depending on the sunshine , the wind, the humidity and the task you are doing.
