    I hate Florida. It's too hot, racist, crime ridden, corrupt, hot, sharks and jelly fish everywhere, hot, sea lice, humid, hot, and did I say hot? California is superior to FL, don't make me laugh! FL feels like you're trapped in a sauna: sweaty and sticky... Ugh! Such a horrible feeling.
    You still haven't defined "hillbillies." Are hillbillies a form of undesirable person exclusive to the southeast? Or are there "hillbillies" in California/the west too? What differentiates California "hillbillies" from Florida "hillbillies?"

    I'm not saying Florida is Paradise; I'm just saying it's nice to be here in the winter...

    California and Florida share many of the same shortcomings, despite the differentials in relative atmospheric humidity.

    Florida is actually about 4 years behind California with regard to occurrence of major criminal activities, such as gang violence and crystal meth manufacture/distribution.

    Cost of living in California is ridiculous.

    Hillbillies don't really live in FL, unless they relocate from elsewhere.

    A hillbilly is a subset of redneck.

    Its a balmy, windy 31 degrees right now.

    I hate scraping ice off my car. :steam:

    We get those awesome desert winters with freezing ass cold and no snow. On the other hand it doesn't make winter driving so stressful.

    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    Wait, when did Florida summers shorten? When I was there, it was hot enough to make you sweat from early March through early December. You only have about 3 months that aren't oppressively hot. Of those other three, you only get a couple days that even require a jacket. There's a reason the population didn't boom until A/C was common and affordable. People brag about the weather, but they go from house A/C, to car A/C, to office A/C, and so on.

The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    It's 64F and sunny. Supposed to hit mid-70s today. The leaves are all at their peak of color. It's an all-around beautiful day.

    Yeah. I think it's way too hot here most of the year. Our spring and winters are the best though.

    And those good months are overrun with tourists. So even if you do go outside, it's still not enjoyable.

    And it's not so much that it's incredibly hot. Other parts of the US get hotter (for short periods of time). It's that there's never a reprieve. It's hot and humid every single day.

    Utah. It snowed 2-3 wks ago 10 miles away, at a higher elevation, but this is the first real snow of the season here.

    It was funny. I lived in central FL once, and people would get really excited and drive 4+ hours all the way up to the pan-handle just to see and inch of snow.
