This is the second place they decided to retire to, and this time unlike the Denver weather that is known to change every ten minutes it s sticking. The Teikos lived in New Jersey but spent winters in Florida for more than 20 years. When it came time to settle down, they decided to do so in the place they had nestled during the cold winter months. However, Florida summers are much different than winters there, and it only took one summer for the Teikos to know that the humid environment was not the right place for them.
