PL, it is humid!!! here. Almost unlivable, at times. I remember when I got off the plane after returning from the panhandle in '72, before there was parking in garages. I stepped out from the building and a wall of humidity took my breath away, literally. The heat is even worse now, with all the concrete around... at least, it seems like it. It might be that I'm just older and can't deal with it, anymore.
The roaches are as big as mice.
The misquitos are so big, they need landing strips.
We have two languages, now.
The crime, although improving, got worse after Katrina's transplants arrived (some decided to stay).
Many other bad aspects.
Would I like to move... YES! but, my babies and grands are here. But, you can bet if they move, I'll follow.

Gimster...I thought you were describing where I live...except you can add to the list of varments...yellow flies, deer flies...there are days one cannot stop out of one's home because they'll be eaten alive or carried off by some winged insect. And the they call them 'tree roaches'. I don't care what they call them...they freak me out and I cannot stand them...normally, the come out of nowhere and I end up on the ceiling, screaming for Larry to come kill the thing.

As for the home market's a buyers market, not a sellers market...and the price of homes anymore is outrageous. I would hold off, if possible, on selling until the market becomes stronger and you can get top dollar for your home and afford a car payment comfortably. I, too, didn't have a car payment for about 6 years...oh, brother, when I did, it was frustrating...but, you adjust.
