People walk here. I probably see double the amount of people walking in my new neighborhood in the Chicago suburbs then back in Florida where I lived.
There are also more people at parks, on bikes and sitting out on their porches. I wondered how the Sunshine State could have less people interested in the outdoors. I rarely saw people sitting outside there.
Since northerners only have a few months a year where the weather isn’t cold, they’re probably getting out as often as they can. People even snuck out in between raindrops in the record breaking rainiest month of June this year.
It was cool all the way into the first week of July. Still, when it’s not pouring, so many are taking advantage of the outdoors. I don’t blame them, after being cooped up for such long winters here.
I don’t recall ever seeing so many emerging from their cocoons in Florida when it got nice out in the winter. Sure, they had lots of festivals in February and many attended those, but leisurely walks, playing at parks, or sitting outside chatting with neighbors … nope.
Yep, this is what I remember about it here. Especially the friendly chats while sitting outside with neighbors.
