I don't know, February had a record for snow fall this year in Ohio. I quite enjoyed it.
With Florida the summers are always rainy and incredibly unbearable due to the heat and humidity. The winters you have "season" which is where all the "snow birds" come down and clog up traffic and cause accidents. You also have all the dry heat in the winter, which means a LOT of brush fires. I recall one time Alligator Alley was shut down for a couple days due to those fires. Soon those beaches on the west coast are going to be destroyed. There's also lots of crime from the illegal immigrant problem in Florida. They bring drugs, prostitution, rape, robbery and murder.
Let's not forget the bugs! First house I lived in (Lehigh Acres) we always had huntsman spiders, brown widows and black widow spiders. Second house wasn't so bad but the third house I rented I had a ghost ant
infestation. I had to use Ant Kil with boric acid to get rid of them.
