Things are ‘a changin’

June 17, 2004

Well, we finally did it. We’ve decided to get out of South Florida and move to Maine – probably at the end of the summer. We have never been happy in South Florida and have been wanting to get out of here ever since we moved here. (We moved to S. FL for jobs, which are no longer worth it.)

So, here’s my list of why Maine is better than South Florida.

1: People are sane as a rule, not as an exception.
2: There are actual seasons, not just ‘warm’ and ‘warmer’
3: You can go out to eat in the winter without waiting an hour for a table.
4: Snow
5: It’s easier to stalk Stephen King from Maine than from Florida (that’s a joke. It’s my mother who wants to stalk Stephen King, not me.)
6: Moose
7: Last I heard, the elections aren’t rigged in Maine.
8: While the Bushes may have property in Maine, at least they aren’t governing of the state.
9: It’s quiet.
10: We get to live in a house! With our own yard! And no close neighbors!

There are plenty more reasons, but that’s good for a start.
