#3 will AND won't miss

this is one that goes both ways.
being able to spot a tourist 100 yards away. yes, if you've lived in florida long enough you can do this. it's been a joke for so long you would think people would realize. new shoes, white socks, matching "disney" shirts for groups, shorts with sandals/socks, etc.

#2 will miss

the beach.
(but, not hearing about shark attacks.) whether or not you go often, it's still nice to be close enough to go whenever you feel.

#2 won't miss

PAY. or lack there of. Florida is a right to work state. that should say it all.
to put it nicely, you bust your backside for pay most people would consider an insult. i work with people who after 2-3 years get 30cents more than when they started. thankfully, I'm not them. but, seriously, it's a slap in the face. this place isn't cheap to live.

#1 will miss

since i started with weather, here's something i will miss about Florida.

going to the beach or barbecuing on Xmas. it does suck that snow is a extremely rare thing. like you may get a dusting every who knows how many years. i think 2 times in the many many years I've lived here. but, a nice warm beach day in December is nice.

having to explain to someone that we have 2 temperatures here. the actual temp and "what it feels like" temp. hello humidity!!! the temp can say 90. but, add humidity and it's suddenly 105.
