Yep, but they said the same last weekend, and I was out sat and sun and only got a bit of rain sunday. I aint skeered ! The thing that has sucked has been the wind. Been howling for months !

Wind has been killing everything. But there is always Peanut Island for me. Not a back backup plan when you have kids.

Yea Thunderstorms every afternoon, but for the most part they remain inland due to the pleasant sea breeze.

That's right New York, you've been sending your refugees to the wrong place all these years. Florida is for suckers. Ol Guide's hacienda is the place to be.

Your whining about wind and rain? How about when we are having our wind and snow. Quit whining and deal with it. At least it's warm.

I can't get in the water unless its at least 70 degrees.

If I got splashed by a wave I'd turn the boat around.

ol guide. Nice area for sure and have been looking at that area.
Was contemplating taking some vacation and scoping the area out maybe for a move.
Now that you mention an abundance of scorpions around and red rattlers in the pool think I'll stay put where the cold months kills all the bugs and not me

Northerner's always complain that we have year round boating.
Not true! The week between Christmas and New Years is generally crappy. (Smirk. . .)
