Yet you seem to be headed back to Florida for the "good life" down here? Is life not that good in New England these days, Care? Florida is suddenly swamped (pun intended) with people from NY, NJ, Mass and Michigan who are tired of Covid policies up there.Matt and I both are Floridians, Matt was born and bread there in Tampa and I was 6 months old when we lived in Florida for the first time... Fort Walton Beach area... We were married in Florida.
We left Florida for jobs in New England, that paid more than double of what I was making in St.Pete, and Matt got a job for 33% more money.... Yes the cost of living is higher up here, but the money more than compensated.
We are from the south, we left the south for the good life, up here....
It has been 3 years since I've seen my parents and my older sister, who watches out for my parents....
Covid, my husband's rotator cuff injury, which took 7 or 8 months to get his surgery, due to hospital lock downs so to say, then his 5 months of physical therapy.... We'll be there for three to 6 months.
We are closing up the house, emptying the waterlines, but decided to just leave the heat on, while gone.
Anyway, we rented a big ass car for the drive, because my parents have 4, and we can use one of them while there, but we have our cat to bring with us with a big cage and lots of kitty luggage of food and litter and litter box.
We have never travelled with her before, other than to the vet...any advice? She's already freaking out because of the luggage packing and house cleaning going on....
We are going to try to make it to Trenton/ phillie area first day from way up here....
We were suppose to leave yesterday, but woke to 6 inches of snow and still snowing....
Merry Christmas oldstyle!Yet you seem to be headed back to Florida for the "good life" down here? Is life not that good in New England these days, Care? Florida is suddenly swamped (pun intended) with people from NY, NJ, Mass and Michigan who are tired of Covid policies up there.
And I can assure you that I've never seen a "swarm" of Northerners like we're seeing THIS year, Care and I've lived here now for twenty years! Ask anyone who lives here and I'm pretty sure they'll tell you the exact same thing I am!Merry Christmas oldstyle!
Leave it to you and 2nd amendment guy to make my totally unpolitical thread in to nasty politics!!
I can assure you that the I75ers and I95ers have been swarming to Florida for the past 40 to 70 years! Minus/without covid.
I would think that liberal California would be attracting liberals like moths to a light, 2aguy! Nice weather and progressive policies up the ying yang! Why would a die hard lib like Care want to go any where else?Please...don't stay there....go back to whatever blue hell hole you come from...Don't make Florida into a blue crap hole.......visit, and leave...quickly...
Where did you come from before you moved to Florida 20 years ago?And I can assure you that I've never seen a "swarm" of Northerners like we're seeing THIS year, Care and I've lived here now for twenty years! Ask anyone who lives here and I'm pretty sure they'll tell you the exact same thing I am!
What's "nasty" about my posts? I'm simply pointing out how ironic it is that the State that so many liberals living in the North have tried to portray as "dangerous" because of our Covid policies...has now become the go to vacation spot of liberals from States like NY, NJ and Michigan! Is it just me or is it hard to reconcile the two things?
I was born in Mobile, at 6 months we moved to the Florida pan handle.... Dad got transfered and stationed there....!I stopped in Ocala once. I had to pick up a couple of Greyhounds to bring back to the track in the Mobile, AL area. BEAUTIFUL country views with miles of picturesque fencing and horses everywhere. Enjoy the trip!
It was pretty awful traffic Flash, the entire way down! A lot of accidents before the DC area, and going thru or around DC was a nightmare!!!Everybody and their Little Brown Dog comes to Florida over the Christmas Holidays.
I-95, I-75 and the Turnpike will be stop and go traffic for hundreds of miles.
Let's see, Boston is a great city if you want to live in a city...fantastic restaurants and lots of culture. The downside is awful traffic and New England winters. I really did enjoy my time there.
I probably averaged 120 days of skiing each year. My condo was on Waters Ave. I could click into my bindings and skate down to the bottom of the gondola in about two minutes. To be honest I moved there for the skiing but I stayed the ten years because the summers were so amazing. Sunny every day and no humidity at all.
