The weather, if you are willing to disregard hot and humid summers, is one of the top reasons why senior citizens flock to the Sunshine State. Florida also has no state income tax. J.J. and I met many residents and "snow birds" in Florida. They are from Canada, New England states and the midwest. These people have either sold their primary homes and relocated or downsized and maintain two seasonal homes: summer and winter.
Furies of nature bring so much destruction, loss of lives, loss of homes and loss of security. Yet, from such tragedies, outpouring support, heartwarming stories of heroism, strength of human character emerges.
Our thoughts and prayers are with people in the Caribbean Islands, Florida, Texas and other places who have directly or indirectly been affected by 2017 hurricanes.
