Why I Don't Live in Florida

This is one reason why I don't live in Florida. Another reason is the humidity and the tropical moist climate. But I could live with that if I had to - not hurricanes. It's a magnet-zone for these storms. Praying that this one will fizzle before it forms even around Puerto Rico, that it'll steer into the shipping lanes and mess up someone's vacation rather than destroy lives and livelihoods. This new one could be before the end of the day. Not fun.

I agree. You can't beat the housing prices (well, being in the Bay Area in California, everything beats our housing prices), but I wouldn't want to live in all that wet: humiditiy, storms, etc., etc. Earthquakes seem like nothing (and I lived through the big one in 89 -- our house was wrecked and rebuilt.) Tropical Storms are so much more common, and always having to anticipate them seems scary. Although, come to think of it, natural disasters in general are freaky. I'd rather deal with earthquakes though.

I also am glad not to be a Floridian. I just noticed you've published some stuff with Infuze Magazine. How was that experience? Coincidentally, I just submitted something there...

I agree with you about Florida and about the future T. S. Emily. The first I heard about it this morning the guy said because of the direction it was headed in, it could come to the Carolinas! It's too early to be making those kind of predictions, but I hope Emily is sweet like my niece with the same name and just goes away quietly....

i've got friends working for a customer in San Juan, PR - first indications were that this'll be bad there, but now it looks like it'll pass way south. still a hairy sitch.

oooooh - and as for getting posted at InfuzeMag.com - they're looking for reviewers. i'm not sure how many they have or want, but doing movie or book or music or game reviews is a major step in the door.

Believe it or not, I was more comfortable living in tornado alley in Oklahoma than I am here living on the coast of Virginia.
I pray we never get stationed in Florida.

If it wern't for air conditioning, no one would live in Florida. I was there once. Absolutely unbearable. No thanks.
