You get used to it, here in SC we don't have it near as long as SW FL. thats why I moved from there, to hot to long. we get a week or two of winter, a little bit of fall and spring and the rest summer. I love the summer myself. I start wearing shorts about april and quit wearing them around Oct. or Nov. went to divorce court last week for a hearing, my lawyer said do not wear shorts its a $250.00 fine. I felt wierd wearing long pants after so long in shorts.
