10 Things...

I don't like about Florida:

1. Spiders so big and oogly I'm afraid to step on them.
2. Prices during Snowbird season.
3. Driving during Snowbird season.
4. Eating out during Snowbird season.
5. Going to a movie during Snowbird season.
6. Fire ants.
7. Cannot escape sand.
8. Sulphury well water.
9. Crunchy grass during Snowbird season (which just happens to generally correspond with the dry season).
10. Business places that think 60 degrees is comfy.

(Just for you, robo_dev. :^0 )

I don't know what snowbirds are, but if they can ruin that for those that enjoy that sort of thing, then I call for swift eradication!

People that live in snow country and move to Florida (or the south in general) during snow season. Usually older. Usually retired. Always a pain in the ***.

a lot of them snowbirds are the senile canadians from the province of Ontario.
[ and senile is the norm, par boiled brains in summer and freeze dried in winter causes it by age 4. ]

Funny movie La Florida

Its about snowbirds from Quebec, who decide to buy a motel in Florida catering to snowbirds....

Its been a while but I find it funny.

Some Americans may complain about snowbirds, but lets face it, they spend money and keep people employed.

With the price of Florida real estate, I think the trend will continue.

as well

by Jaqui In reply to Hey now!

getting away from the bitterly cold winters to Florida for them is much easier on old bones.
less risk of pneumonia, slipping on icy sidewalk and breaking bones.

and yeah, a few thousand people spending money there for months on end isn't going to hurt the Florida economy at all.

It's not Snowbirds, per se,

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to Hey now!

it's the massive crowding everywhere during 'the season', in addition to the obscene, across-the-board price hikes.

What Snowbird season

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to Snowbirds

does to hospitals and rehab units is ridiculous, too. Health care overload. And do you think these idiot administrators have sense enough to build larger and hire more staff? If you do, think again. X-(

It's just like the governments on the Gulf Coast

by NickNielsen In reply to What Snowbird season

They build their storm drains to handle the average rainfall, conveniently forgetting that the average rainfall usually happens in a five-minute period. Five minutes of rain, 2 hours of flooded streets until the storm drains catch up...

You need medical trailer parks...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to What Snowbird season

An army brigade-size medical wing on wheels, following like a swarm of locust-medicating locusts after the locust swarm of snowbirds
It can go swarm other hotspots at other times of the year, like LA rush hour or Woodstock Mk XXXXVIII...
