Practice the following paragraph My friend Matthew is originally from one of the New England states. Now that he is older, he hates the cold and snow. He says that always having to wear heavy jackets and coats with hats and mittens is really starting to get on his nerves. He’s thinking about moving to Florida, where the climate is much warmer. He visits his parents there quite often, and really enjoys the warm weather. The weather is always fantastic and Matthew says he sees people wearing t-shirts, driving their boats in the water, and swimming in the clear, blue ocean. As soon as Matthew gets a new job, he’s planning on moving.
