I am a midwesterner looking at retiring somewhere warm and snow free. The winters here in Chicago and surrounding suburbs are brutal at times but for some reason people stay. Temps can reach -40 degrees in the winter and +95 degrees in the summer. Crime is much lower here in Naperville, Illinois and as compared to Chicago with a population of 4 million. And my point is, regardless of where you reside it's what you make of it. I am willing to give up the snow, cold winters and hot summers and low crime rate for the hot weather and beautiful sandy beaches in Florida. Hurricanes do concern me but with a little preparation and a back up plan most do survive. I survived a hurricane in Puerto Rico in the 80's and it helped me hone in on my survival skills. A little luck doesn't hurt though. Now where in Florida does one start the search? Terri from Hollywood, FL do you have the answer?
