Hurricane Season Ends
Whew! We made it to the end of yet another hurricane season…and I say, “Good riddance!” I’m not sure where 2017 year ranks historically among the costliest, but it was certainly a life-changer for far too many people. In the collective 21 years that I’ve lived in the Orlando area, this year was a real doozie – nothing I’ve ever lived through (I did miss 2004). There are still lasting effects from both Irma and Maria that will impact our region’s future for years to come, prompting political, regulatory and workforce changes of tropical storm proportions.
Holiday Celebration Options
While I don’t see many (genuine) white Christmases in Central Florida’s future, I do see a lot opportunities to celebrate this most wonderful time of the year…and many come without having to fork over a lot of green. Aside from all the theme park themed events, several cities, neighborhoods, and even schools have free or low-cost events. It’s fun to stroll through Winter Park as ice skaters pirouette…or experience live “snowfalls” in Celebration. You can even ride the Polar Express in Tavares! In the region of make-believe, Central Florida pulls out all the stops in providing real holiday fun for everyone.
