I retired from the military long before my fiance retired, and i honestly wanted to move down South, however both of us had a kid residing in Tampa, FL plus I wanted us to move down there to be closer to our grandchildrenâ€¦ The thought of residing in Tampa Bay didn’t sound horrible either, and after my fiance finished with his task plus retired, the two of us started looking for a place in Tampa.
Both of us moved to the city a few months after the retirement was settled plus done. It didn’t take long to sell our house. It was only on the market for 15 days. Both of us acquired a full asking price offer, perhaps every one of us could have gotten $10,000 more for the house, however every one of us were ready to sell plus honestly did not want to wait just for a few more dollars. My fiance plus I honestly weren’t prepared for the heat plus humidity in Tampa Bay. Both of us moved in the middle of June. It was 86° on the summer time day that every one of us left our place in MI. It was 101 degrees when every one of us arrived in Tampa Bay. A few weeks after every one of us settled into our new place, there was a tropical storm that knocked out the power for 5 days. Both of us didn’t have a generator plus every one of us couldn’t run anything in the home including the refrigerator, freezer, or a/c. My fiance plus I nearly died from the heatâ€¦ Without the a/c running, the home was at least a hundred degrees, but during the day, there were times when I thought it was entirely cooler outside.
