Florida is an interesting place. I thought it got hot up north in the summer months of July and August. Florida takes that to a whole new level with the combined heat and humidity. If I had to work out in it, I would move. However, I am passed those days and can just enjoy the heat on my bones at my leisure. We were still changing things over from our recent move. I had just got satellite TV installed, and I was looking up Palatka auto insurance companies to get new insurance for our vehicles. I found an agency that has been in business for a good amount of time. I certainly did not want to have to switch agents after a couple of years. I like stability as well as familiarity.
The Florida prices for things from taxes to the utilities and the insurances we have to have are on par for what I thought we would be paying. We lived in a region up north with lower taxes, but they also had less in the way of public services. Things are pretty well maintained down here all the time. We like that much more than having to constantly go to council meetings to get some things done. We were snowbirds for a couple of years, then we came down in midsummer for a visit. It was as hot as we thought it would be, but it was bearable. Three or four months of heat beat the six months of cold and too cold that we get back where we hail from.
I noticed that there are a lot more streetlights in these parts too. It was like they were stingy with the light where we come from. This is a help to older eyes driving at night. It will help keep our insurance premiums for our car down too. So far everything is great. I am not fond that there are alligators in the large pond where we live, but I don’t expect to tangle with them anytime soon.
