I was in Port Charlotte last week. I like Punta Gorda better though.
As for figuring it out. Easy! Save your money - Move. But you better have a lot of money because if ya think getting a job here will cut it, I'm here to tell you it wont. Either start another business, or have a good pension. Shit is expensive here.
I worked for myself for way too many years to work for someone else. The we are going to handle it is get the van down there with equipment setup advertise the snot out of it schedule as much work as possible fly and down do it and come back and forth until the business in houses is sold. Oh yeah save we been saveing money and paying down all debts but we both know you never have enough so prepare before you go or it will fail without question

You know that it's cold when cuff on your vacuum hose is filled with slushy ice. Once sun is out, it's lost cause... Just about 0 °.

It's been cold here in Sarasota Florida too. Been in the 40s at night and only in the 60s and cloudy during the day. Coldest January I ever remember and I've been coming here since the 1970s. Thankfully it will be back in the upper 70s starting Friday.
im glad i left florida
