It’s officially Summer! Thursday marked the first day of Summer with the Summer Solstice. Although it has felt like “Summer” since mid-May here in Southwest Florida.
We were just chatting about the weather with a prospective homebuyer from Virginia. She was worried Florida Summers were too hot and humid for her to live here year-round. So, we did a quick weather comparison of the two areas, and it turns out, Summers in SWFL aren’t much different than what she’s used to!
