The Midterms Have Reshaped The 2020 Outlook

TAMPA – The seasonal morning chill has settled in for most of Tampa Bay, Florida. As many are pulling out ice scrapers and lighting up defrosters for their morning commute Floridians grab a Squeegee™ and towel down their windshields and mirrors. 50°F is nothing to complain about but with a dew point near 60°F the dew weighs like a cold, wet blanket and one could catch a chill with ease. As this holiday mood sets in and the quasi white-christmas is condensing on the St. Augustine grass that covers much of Florida (though I’d call it crabgrass) we, as...
