    Snowbirds have been in season here for a month or two already. The ones that own a trailer in both countries can travel back and forth. Traffic is back in season too. It can take 20 minutes to go just 5 miles to the home depot. Ugh.

    Personally, I'm OK with snowbirds and tourists. They are the reason I don't have to pay state income taxes.

    Lakeland is relatively redneck free. I'm practically your neighbor in plant city. We definitley do redneck here. And it also doesn't sound like you've spent much time in the panhandle......

    Better hurry

    906 people are moving to the state of Florida every day. 330,605 people are moving to Florida every year. That's equal to adding a city slightly larger than Orlando every year, according to a report released online this week by state economist.

    The shambles of our remaining economy have kiboshed my plans to move to Florida for the next few years, because I wanted to buy land/build a custom house and I'm not going to do that until things even out. I'm potentially getting close to a post-grad school job offer, so I'm hoping to come snowbird for a month or two during the winter.
