Come On Cold Front!

By | Market Report | No Comments

Southwest Florida has some of the best weather in the country but even so we find ourselves longing for cooler days. Temperatures have been hovering 7 to 8 degrees above normal keeping us in the mid 90s with no rain. The gulf temperatures have actually been climbing in recent weeks. Gulf temperatures are in still at an unheard of 87 degrees. Have no fear though. We are only days away from perfect weather.

Where is the cold front?

Where is the cold front?

Unlike our friends up north we cherish cold fronts. They will chill us down to frigid temperatures in the 70s and 80s. It is what Florida is all about. The warm sun, blue skies, and sandy beaches never lose their appeal and are an invitation to everyone in colder climates to come visit and stay awhile. This year’s visitors are going to be greeted with outstanding values on Fort Myers FL Homes. It is my dedication to spread the word to as many as I can that vacation and retirement living has not been this affordable in at least a decade and maybe ever. I encourage you to take some time out to see what is available. We will make it fun, I promise.

Back to My Roots in St. Louis

I spend most of my time discussing pertinent issues concerning Fort Myers Fl real estate since after all that is the true purpose of this website.  Periodically however I like to comment on other topics that give insight into who I am and where I am from.  I recently visited St. Louis still home to my parents, 10 brothers and sisters, my mother in law,  5 of my wife’s 6 sisters, and too many nieces and nephews to count.  As you can imagine those trips are packed with family time.  You archcan never get enough.  Whenever you live in a place for an extended period of time you begin to take things for granted.  St. Louis is full of those things.  Forest Park, the St. Louis Zoo, Busch stadium and the St. Louis Cardinals, the St. Louis Rams, Ted Drewes frozen custard, Imo’s Pizza, and yes Lion’s Choice.   I could fill these pages with fond memories.

Important to me is to take the time to appreciate the things surrounding our Ft Myers Fl homes.  Today is the first break from the summer heat.  It is the first sample of what will be expected for the next 6 months, ideal weather.   Nearly every day I cross a bridge over the water and take in a view worthy of a post card.  Sunsets are spectacular.  Flowers can be seen 12 months of the year and of course there is the endless array of palm trees and lush landscaping.  You never want to forget the memories of your family and home town.  At the same time it is always good to stop for a minute, look around and as they say “smell the roses”.  What a beautiful place Fort Myers is.  Hope you join us soon.
