Plaindealer Staff Report
I think what got to me was the scenery; I fell in love. Seeing mountains and trees is a nice change from flat lands and busy streets. I will absolutely not miss Orlando traffic. I like that I can just walk wherever I need to go without worrying about getting hit by a speeding car. Being a Florida girl, I'll have to get used to the cold and snow, but my dog seems to be adjusting just fine," Block said.
