It’s the height of snowbird season in Southwest Florida. This weekend is the Edison Festival of Light Parade, and it seems like we are overrun with out-of-staters, here for the beautiful weather. But after a little experiment this morning, I’m not so sure.

As Shae and I took our daily commute to Edison College this morning, I told her we would count the number of Florida license plates compared to the out-of-state plates. The snowbird plates took an early 2-1 lead as we drove down Bayshore, but it was all Florida after that.

Perhaps the out-of-staters don’t come out until later, or maybe they get their vehicles registered in Florida, but they weren’t where we were this morning.
