The Return of The North American Snowbird
The snow flurries are gone and the migratory pattern of the Great Northern Snowbird begins to shift back to a north by northeast course, making a path towards Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, New York, New Jersey and especially, Canada.
Hats off for the for more than 1 million Canadians which can be found here in Florida during season (December-April): Restaurant waits - one hour and counting; long lines in Costco; Traffic at all hours of the day everyday; Yet we love our Snowbirds which allows so many of us to live and work in this Tropical Paradise we love called Southwest Florida.
This season was to all accounts a return to the good times of seasons past. Before "9/11", before the real estate bubble of 2006 and before the BP oil spill. So good to see the return to better days - As Billie & Caroline of the Cape Coral KIA dealership would says,"It’s HUGE". Thank you our Northern Cousins. Thank you very much.
Now begins the migratory patterns of the "Snowbirds.
Evidence of their departure can be spotted everywhere. Daily alerts and updates for the I-95 and I-75 corridors, increased daily RV count heading north. Now on to Summer (May/June - October).
Don't worry, the migratory pattern of the Great American Snow Bird will begin in reverse at the first sign of the return of snow flurries making a direct path towards….you guested it - Florida.
We’ll leave a light on.
