I don't blame you one bit for wanting to get away from 6 month long winter's, but going from MN. to FL. is a big change, do you know how hot and humid central Florida is?

Yes I know how hot and humid it gets, been there a lot in mid june every yr. No hotter than MN we get up into the 90s all the time and once in a while low 100s with 90% humidity. Thats why Im tired of this state freeze or broil !!
But I plan on running Mow-Daddy in both states so I will be back and forth. Best of both worlds. May June July in Minnesota the rest of the time running the Florida crew.
