    It's looking about 75% yes, 25% no at this point. I'm still holding out for the long shot right now. I really really really really really want to stay. Either way, I'm not going anywhere until next June. I'm looking for some horsey friends I can hang out with and learn some ropes until I get a horse next year.

    Any particular reason, if you don't mind me asking?
    My dad really wants to move to Florida. He's so sick of Ohio weather! Although it's been fairly nice the past couple days.

    My hubby is in the military, so I go where the government tells us, unfortunately. I can't stand it. It drives me nuts. I hate moving. I hope that the uprooting will come to an end soon.

    And for the record, I've lived in Florida. I hated the weather. In the summer it is choking hot. It would be so hot and humid it would make me ill. I couldn't even get out and do anything in my garden because I'd be dizzy from heat exhaustion in less than a half an hour. And the bugs! OMG! The palmetto bugs could put Madagascar hissing roaches to shame. And don't get me started on the fire ants. Yuck!

    I was so relieved to come back to Ohio. Yes, there's snow, but the winter doesn't last that long, and the cold weather can be brisk and cozy and you get to build snowmen. And shoveling the driveway always gets the blood pumping. It's not like we live in Manitoba. The people in Winnipeg would laugh.

    And if you're trying to escape the rain, you have thunderstorms just as often in Florida, with the bonus of getting hit with hurricanes that spawn tornadoes.

    Give me Ohio with the pretty tulips in the spring and gorgeous fall colors and fireflies in the summer any day!

    It drives me crazy when people here in Dayton bag on it. I grew up in California, and have lived in Florida, and of all the places I've been, this is the one I would fight to stay in if I could.

    I also don't think it is so bad here. I'd like to stay. :)

    It depends on your weather preference, I think. I'm very much a warm weather person. I lived in Alabama for years and loved it all much more compared to Ohio. For 7-8 months out of the year in Ohio I'm cold and miserable. This year is completely out of the norm, which I'm absolutely okay with. 80s in March is my comfort zone.

    That is true, I overheat in the shower so Florida was definitely not for me. My sister in law on the other hand has to wear a sweater in July. I'm pretty sure weather in the teens would kill her.

    Still, that said, I am so glad to be rid of fire ants. Nasty little bugs.
