Yea, there is work in resort climates. I live in one. The wages are lower than what you are used to, and I probably don't have the bennies that you do.

I once saw a bumper sticker that summed it up for me: Working in Florida is a tropical depression.

What you need is a vacation, c'mon down for a visit.

i was down to clearwater in november(actually bought a car on ebay there and picked it up)and believe me if i could get a work permit i,d be there but being canadian it is impossible unless you can get a company to sponser you,oh well 3 months to good weather here,you floridians just appreciate that beautiful climate you have.

cheers neil

Just got home from a trip to Detroit. I'd never been there in winter,but I have a new appreciation for the conditions you northern guys must work in.
