“Living in rural Florida can be challenging. The heat and humidity from May to October are oppressive. Mosquitos, chiggers, ticks, and biting flies can make a walk in the woods feel like running the gauntlet. Though hurricanes rarely make it up to north-central Florida, inundations of 6 or 8 inches are regular occurrences during the rainy season, and the ongoing paving of the state guarantees flooding almost anywhere. And then there’s the politics. … But occasionally, something nice happens that makes Florida feel almost ok. For me, it was getting my medical marijuana card.” (05/12/23)
