    Stay Away From Florida For Your Sanity

    I have lived in Tallahassee for 15 years. I have hated every minute of it. I'm from Atlanta and I should have stayed there. But, lured by a warm climate and a great scholarship offer I came to school here and was crazy enough to stay in Florida to work. What a big mistake...

    I Give Up On Florida

    Don't waste your life here. I came down here in 2010 thinking that it would be nice to live in a vacation state. I guess I was wrong. I haven't made any friends. Every time I walk into a room the people who were talking to each other suddenly stop talking, but then as soon as I...

    One more reason to hate Florida: Stuff breaks.

    If you’re thinking of moving to Florida (and this includes you, Floridabound2016) be aware that you’re coming to an environment where the extreme heat, humidity, the brutal sun and the tropical weather is hard, not only on human beings, but on their things. This was...

    Florida Is A Close To Hell As One Can Get.

    I really hate this place with a passion. I was relocated here back in the early 80's when my new husband got out of the Army. We had 2 children and I wanted a positive future for them. Where I am from general motors shut down and so did the town. I felt that there was a better...

    complainers is that I see the recurring complaint pattern, heat, flat land, rude people, and poor drivers. Well I have to be honest, I LOVE heat!!!! I love flat land, hills = poor gas mileage and landslides, falling rocks. Rude people??? Ha!! I lived in Virginia Beach for a...

    Please, Please, Avoid South Florida At All Costs

    Why in God's name would anyone want to come to Florida? Everything South of Ocala is pure hell and the most God awful looking place. South/central and South Florida have to be one of the ugliest places on earth. Unless you are wealthy, this place is a hell-hole. Rich people...

    August is the cruelest month.

    It's so hot one can barely breathe. To take two steps outside in the morning is to be drenched in sweat. In the afternoon, take two steps outside and be drenched in rain. But worst of all is the heat exhaustion that settles on this place -- even more so than usual. No one...

    10. Heat does not cause traffic problems.

    Think about all the times it has taken you hours to get home from work because of snow and ice. Sure, if you live on the Cape or near the beach there's traffic in the summer, but who cares? 9. Nearly twice as many people die from exposure to cold weather than those who succumb...

    People who get tired of Northern winters tend

    to move to Florida looking for paradise and a place without snow. The problem is, it's too extreme of a change. Unless you LOVE hot weather (and I don't mean Michigan summer hot. I mean sauna hot), you're just exchanging a miserable winter for a miserable summer. As someone who...
