I was used to much colder winters before moving to Tampa, Florida.
- I was a snowbird at first, a transplant from the northern midwest who would drive down in early December when temperatures in my household state would plummet below chilly.
By then my friend and I might have a blizzard at least once after Autumn advances into winter, however it was almost a guarantee that temperatures would get into the teens at least once while in this time. That chilly weather gets more noticeable with age, & I’m not exactly sure why. Count that was one among numerous reasons you see a lot of retirees moving down south to various coastal cities in Florida like Tampa, Sarasota, Naples, Miami, & Pensacola. However, people come down here in the winter & expect there to be beach weather. That’s not a satisfactory expectation. While there are fantastic beaches in the Tampa Bay area, you could show up in the middle of December with 30 degree temperatures & find yourself severely disappointed. My associate and I had a certainally chilly winter this year in Tampa, Florida. I was driving down interstate 69 headed south to Palmetto when I heard on the boombox that temperatures would hit 30 degrees the following day. I thought my friend and I might really get snowflakes this time, however my friend and I didn’t. My friend living in Ocala said his thermometer outside study 28 degrees at one point however they didn’t get snow flurries either. While it might seem impossible, this really happened on December 19, 1970 when Tampa had various inches of snow on the ground, covering rooftops & automobiles.
