Snow has been a hot topic in 2018, with out of season snow storms battering many northern and central states even after the calendar informed us it was already spring. If you are a full-time Sarasota resident, you’ll continue to enjoy the gorgeous weather we are having and the many activities we enjoy year-round, but part-time residents may not realize what they may be missing if they start to head north too soon.
We’re not saying that you should abandon your home state entirely (although it is an option), but with these colder temperatures causing many northern residents to delay hanging up their winter coats, you may want to consider extending your stay in Sarasota FL to get the most out of our beautiful spring weather and activities.
