We don’t get as much cold weather as they do in other parts of the country. Most of us who live here in Florida live here because we like the warm weather.
We joke about palm trees and wearing shorts and flip flops in December, spending the holidays on the beach and having only one day of Winter. We tease our friends and family in colder climates about our warm weather.
Also, because we are accustomed to the warmer weather, we tend not to spend as much time preparing our homes for Winter as those in colder, more northern climates are accustomed to spending.
