This has been our home for the last month. John Prince Park campground in Lake Worth Florida. It is a very nice campground inside a huge park with lakes, a golf course, sports fields and miles and miles of walking paths. It is an urban oasis. The weather since we have arrived has been warm with lots of rain --- more on that later.
There aren't many places in the continental United States where the temperatures are summer warm all winter. The best chance of escaping winter in Florida is to stay south of Lake Okeechobee which has lead Lucie's family and lots of Quebecois to escape the Canadian winter down here. This campground has more Quebecois than English speaking people! So what did Lucie do as soon as we got settled here? She flew back to Vermont for a week to spend time with her grandchildren!
While she was gone I got to experience the full brunt of this Florida tropical climate. A bit of extreme weather left Lake Worth and the campground where I was staying inundated with rain water and we were flooded for three days.
It wasn't really an inconvenience but the humidity and warmth lead to mildew on everything. By the time Lucie returned from Vermont the waters had receded and everything was back to normal.
