Some of my followers are aware that I have been wrestling with moving to Florida for some time now. It’s a bit of a story, so I will keep this super short. In 1993, I lost a home and a new car to a major flooding event in Florida. I left Florida in 1993, never went back except to visit family of course.
In the last several weeks, I have thought plenty about this. The summer of 2017 saw serious, major flooding and storms for all of Florida, Texas and the entire Gulf Coast. I simply do not want to put myself and my property in a place where I could lose everything because of a major hurricane.
Add to this, I have Diabetes that needs medication daily, as well as Chronic High Blood Pressure. Once those medications run out in a worse case scenario, I am basically dead to be blunt. It makes much more sense to stay in Las Vegas with our beautiful year round climate, no tornadoes, no hurricanes and plenty of sunshine. I am addicted to sunshine and palm trees and acclimated to the Mojave Desert. All of this said, why leave?
