Tallahassee, Fla. -- Hey, Boston. You have a math problem.

Your morning temperature today, with rain, was 35 degrees – or about a ski cap, ear muffs, mittens, two sweaters, hoodie, long johns, insulated boots and chapped lips colder than Orlando.

Where it’s 72 … and sunny.

Florida has a solution to your problem. Can we talk?

Get into a #SunshineStateOfMind by joining VISIT FLORIDA in conversation with Bostonians on Facebook and Twitter. Find fun weather trivia and comparisons, and join the dialogue: What do you think about wintering in Florida?

The buzz includes airline specials from Boston that could land you this winter in the Sunshine State, where your Red Sox spend six weeks in spring training. Find those and other Florida deals and insights from “Smart Travel” Insider Dalia Colon in her series Follow the Sun.

The Sunshine State of Mind takes you away from salting your sidewalks and places you along saltwater beaches. To learn more about the Sunshine State, head to www.VISITFLORIDA.com.
