Response to Me. (Reply #25)

Fri Jul 19, 2013, 10:02 AM

26. The last summer I spent in NJ (think it was 1993)

It got up to over 100 in my house . . . . we had no central air because up north you don't have it in older houses and generally don't need it -- a box fan in the window will suffice. Freakishly hot summer that year.

I had to get up several times a night, dunk myself in a cold bath and go back to bed.

It was miserable.

Now I'm in Florida and anyone here will tell you, we cherish our A/C. Can't live without it for a single minute.

But Mary, I wouldn't trade all of our miserably hot summers for a single winter up there in the snow.

I hate being cold and I especially hate driving on a foot of ice for months. That was my last winter up there, just as miserable as my last summer.

I'm not coming back I don't care how many George Zimmerman's get off Scott free.

It upsets me a little when people say "Florida screwed up". Florida didn't. A handful of Floridians screwed up.

But I think Zimmy will move out of state. It simply isn't safe for him here. There are a handful of states that would welcome him and let him kill as many black 17 year olds as he wants . . . I won't name names.

But if he stays here his life isn't worth a plug nickel. If he stays he won't live out the year, that's my opinion.
