Of course there is none of the northern winter weather with no snow to shovel, no hazardous driving conditions, no ice to scrape from the windshield, etc. But the first thing to strike me as I arrived in Michigan, where it is as hot as Florida, for a summer visit is the terrible condition of the roads. Not only the main streets, but the side streets are all like driving on a wash-board. Not just the pot-hole patching, but none of the concrete sections meet on a level surface. I'll probably need a suspension re-build when I get home? But hey, the golf courses are very nice with level and smooth putting surfaces!
