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 )

Sounds eerily familiar...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to In Ontario

We get the rocks too, I think otherwise the place would just drain off into the ocean, but it seems like everything is a valley, lake in the middle, swamp all around and a rocky tree line on both sides to cut it off from the rest of the world.
Great terrain for stopping an advancing tank force using only infantry... not so great for agriculture.
The whole place was just a huge mess of archipelago and fjords a thousand years ago... it's been rising up from under the ice-age burdens for ten thousand years. Crazy to think about.
There's a steep hill near here, where they've marked the sea levels at various points in time, all the way down to 1AD, and further back too. There's a little platform at the top where the sea level was at 8k BC, if I recall correctly... the time of the first Jericho, before its oasis moved.

Here is a litte ditty

by JamesRL In reply to Sounds eerily familiar...

Called "Rocks and Trees" by the Arrogant Worms.

You can find it on youtube, can't access it from here (work).

My country's bigger than most,
And if asked I boast.
Cause i'm really proud,
So I shout it loud.
Though our numbers are few,
We will welcome you.
Although we don't have history,
Gold medal winning teams,
Heroes or prisoners, world famous volcanoes,
Still what we've got's glorious.

Cause we've got rocks and trees, and trees and rocks,
and rocks and trees, and trees and rocks,
and rocks and trees, and trees and rocks,
and rocks and trees, and trees and rocks,
and water.

(All right, everyone!)

We've got rocks and trees, and trees and rocks,
and rocks and trees, and trees and rocks,
and rocks and trees, and trees and rocks,
and rocks and trees, and trees and rocks,
and water.

In Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada,
Ca-an-a-da, Can-a-da.
Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada, Canada,
Ca-an-a-da, Canada.

Hey Jason

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Number 11

Now that you're hanging out here, do you see what we mean about not finding things, and not know where things are going on?
Because, we're really not getting used to it, so if we need to clarify the problem, just give us a sign.

Florida.

by CharlieSpencer In reply to 10 Things...

I can never figure out if it's the seventh New England state, the 14th Canadian province / territory, or the sixth borough of New York City.

Depends on the time of year.

by JamesRL In reply to Florida.

You won't find many snowbirds there in July.

BTW since the Canadian dollar is strong, and our housing market means we all still have decent equity in our houses, a number fo entrepreneurial Florida real estate salespeople are holding seminars across Ontario to try and get us to buy more Florida real estate. I don't have that kinda cash, but the prices do seem to be low, so someone is going to bite, thus perpetuating the snowbird cycle.

by cmiller5400 In reply to Is this

They are just starting to come out now. The only thing I hate more than spiders is fly's. I can't go to sleep until they are all dead.

You must be pretty tired then cmiller5400,,,

by Peconet Tietokoneet In reply to Yep

Being up all night and swatting those flys just to get some shuteye. get a anti-fly machine gun and set it up onto automatic mode, make sure you have a silencer attached to keep the noise down. :)
