Hurricanes, lightning, alligators, bugs, red tide, flooding zones, snakes etc. etc. are all minor issues that are made out to be much bigger than they are.....for whatever reason!
The reality is regardless of where you live there will be some negative issues associated with it that are "blown out of proportion."
Florida has snakes and if you spend enough time here, you may see one but it will no doubt be traveling in the other direction...away from you, since they are more afraid of you than you are of them.....
We would be happy to hear more of our Florida questions and possibly share some of our property "Best Buys."
