    Florida is great to visit but who the heck wants to live there?

    Outside of the horrible summer weather, Florida is a decent place to live. We don't have all of the other taxes that many other states have, so it's cheaper to live here. If you like boating, and other outdoor sports, Florida has a lot to offer. As a UPS driver, I cannot stand the 7 months of summer, but some guys like it. I can't wait to finish out my last three years, and be done with working outside schlepping boxes.

    I love the Florida heat, but that's on vacation. Can't imagine working there in the summer.
