Yes. See above picture.
Florida trumps Chicago. At least in the winter. I’m glad that Chicago doesn’t get hurricanes, and we’re a little too far off the map of where the remnants of hurricanes will go, so we avoid that rainy soupy mess. So I would rather have a Chicago fall than a Florida fall (unless the latter is sunny and warm, and the former is cold and cloudy). Chicago springs are kinda nice, with the fogs that roll in off the lake. Chicago summers are okay. This summer was really cold, though, and I actually missed the 100-degree days with the 100% humidity. I know you don’t believe me, but I did miss it. On the plus side, we barely had to run the AC this summer, or the heat this fall, so yay for saving on electricity.
But right now it’s 16 degrees, with a windchill of 0 degrees (or as NOAA said, -0).
And in central Florida, it’s in the mid 70s and sunny.
And tomorrow in Chicago, we’re supposed to get up to 6 inches of snow.
Damn. I wish I had enough money to be a snowbird. Maybe when my husband and I retire?
For now, I’ll just have to be content looking at my pic from round abouts Flagler Beach. *sigh*
