Even though our weather did not exhibit its usual stellar sunshine and blue skies today, 'season' dictates plenty of northern visitors - in fact, Naples is gearing up for the peak months of February and March. During this time, the 'snowbirds' take over the town and most locals try to stay out of the way, but it means planning different driving routes (often impossible due to the lack of infrastructure), no eating out (restaurants are packed), and even adjusting shopping routines (hopefully, the shelves are stocked!). Eventually, visitors head back north and leave us with the heat and humidity of summer!

The ebb and flow of our town's census is sometimes difficult. Similar to our own needs to seek balance, a homeostasis is a natural state that is constantly regulated by reactions to outside sources. Sometimes planning, organization, and even expectation can help prevent the wide extremes of the pendulum swing. Other times, no amount of prevention make a difference...then, coping mechanisms come into play! 5th Ave S & 8th St, Naples, FL
