In October 2001, Snow Falls in Northeast, but Warm & Sunny Florida Beckons!

Snow in New York State from Bill Quackenbush - JTEIf you have been watching the news over this past weekend, many inches of snow have fallen along the northeast coast of the United States. Our kids have not yet gone "trick or treating" and yet there is snow on the ground. I remember hearing about "frost on the pumpkins", but this is ridiculous. Here is a picture that one of my FaceBook friends, Bill Quackenbush, took of his corner of New York State. Beautiful, to be sure. But cold and slippery.

P9150530Many of you will like the snow and crisp weather for a month or so. But then, those that can, will be thinking about spending the worst of the winter season in a somewhat warmer clime. Perhaps like Florida? Here we seldom see snow and even when it gets chilly, that does not last long. Then the sun comes out and summer is here again. No icy sidewalks to slip on, no snow to shovel, no scraping of windshields, no high heating  bills.  Play golf and tennis all year if you want to. Take a stroll in shorts and a tee-shirt. Not a bad life, don't you agree?

If you are looking for a winter retreat in the Sunshine State, here in Zephyrhills we can offer you single-family homes, villas, one-story & multi-story condos, townhomes, and great mobile homes. These can be inside or outside of 55+ communities, whichever you prefer.

Swimming Pool - Larger OneMany of these communities have amenities that will make you feel like you are living in a resort. Yet here you will OWN the land and the home. I do not sell homes on rental lots. Clubhouses, shuffleboard courts, swimming pools, tennis courts, whirlpool spas, etc are quite common in the 55+ subdivisions and others. And if you want to have a full social life, our retirement communities and nearby organizations can provide you with numerous opportunities to fill your days with interesting activities. No need to stay shut up in your house while the cold and snow make being outdoors less than pleasant. Get out there and enjoy life!
