The things that frost residents of FL, TX and AZ.

Snowbirds.

(Just kidding!)

As a native of Florida, I have been listening to snowbirds complain most of my life and I still have not gotten used to it. If it is so bad then don't come. (Reply is: If it wasn't for us snowbirds, your economy would dry up.). I am old enough to remember life in Florida without many snowbirds and I can tell you that in Florida, we did quite well in the presnowbird days.

Wow, I don't think anyone was serious enough to warrant this kind of reaction. This thread was all in fun. I am sorry if we hit a nerve.

Sorry, I have been listening to people complain about Florida all my life and I will admit I am a little sensitive about it.

I don't think anyone was complaining about Florida, unless I missed it. It was a humorous attempt to try to sell us on why life as a snowbird is hard

I live in East TN and we also have lots of tourists, and I have been asked questions like, "I thought everyone here wore overalls" and "where is your moonshine", but I just let it roll off and look at the source and know that I am not like that.

Life is too short.

If it's one thing I hate, it's something I can't stand.

Unhappy

Opening the door at a park in Nashville after hearing loud knocking and seeing a firefighter in water up to his knees telling me I should unhook and get the heck out

Oh, we got out with out too much of a problem. The Toad filled with water as did my pants and shoes. The car is drying out and shoes are in a dumpster.
Winnibagos make great boats but I wouldn't recommend it

Think of it this way. At least the the Snowbirds are legal and have contributed to this Country. Do you remember Fla without illegals?
I'm not trying to be nasty, Just wondering.
