I remember when I lived back in New York State the state fair took place in the summer. Not many people wanted to be wandering from booth to booth in the middle of February up there. Wonder why????
Well, here in the Sunshine State, February holds little fear for us with its moderate temperatures and lots of sunlight to keep us from getting the winter blues.
