Remember the good old days when school started AFTER Labor Day? Maybe that still occurs in some places, but for the kids here in Florida school begins in August, weeks before Labor Day even arrives. Oh sure, they get Labor Day off which gives them a three-day weekend less than a month after school starts, but it is still early to be back at the grind for them! Summer used to be a blissful three months. It felt long. We started missing our friends and wondering who our teacher would be. Now it seems that right when kids get into the groove of summer, sleeping in, and swimming, they have to head back to school.
As we approach mid-summer our days get even warmer. Sometimes it seems impossible to escape the heat. We thought we would help you beat the heat by giving some tips on how to keep you and your house cooler.
Moving is a big task even when it’s just across town. Some of you may be getting ready to make moves from one state to another or even from one coast to another. At Florida Moving Systems, we like to give travel tips to help make your move as easy and fun as possible. We know that most of you don’t associate the word fun with a move, but the two can go hand-in-hand.
To help us illustrate our point, we decided to talk with a family that made a coast-to-coast move from California to Florida. While this drive could technically be done in three or four days, that is a lot of driving in a very short period of time. That isn’t super fun. So, we wanted to know what this family did to turn their big move into a big vacation.
Let’s be honest. We live where other people vacation. It can’t get much better than that! A woman getting her lunch in Cocoa Village while on lunch break from work was recently asked by a visitor if she was taking the lunch back on the ship. She thought she was a fellow cruise passenger. When she told the friendly cruise passenger that she was headed back to work, the woman’s eyes grew wide with wonder as she asked, “You LIVE here?” Yes. Yes, we do. We live in this year-round semi-tropical, beautiful place.
Moving at any time of the year is a big task. Moving in the summer comes with its own set of pros and cons. We thought since it’s summertime that it would be a good time to share with you some tips to help your move go as smoothly as possible. Here in Florida, the heat and humidity is something that must be taken into consideration when moving.
