How would Florida fare during a nuclear winter?

Would Florida be a good place to be if Yellowstone erupted?

The ash cloud would bury a lot of the American west and put the upper Midwest into the deep freeze?

Florida would likely still have a growing season for the few years of nuclear winter and might just get some flurries for a few days in December,

Would Florida be a good place to be in the event Yellowstone blew its lid?

It’s likely that Florida would stop food exports and prioritize food for local grocery stores and would life be relatively normal for floorida and some southern states and just maybe farmers would switch crops and such?

Would there be a “devastated west”, “starving north” and a relatively civilized and well to do south?

Update:

Even in a drought Florida does irrigate so lack of rain could be dodged as well?

    No place on earth is safe from a nuclear winter, because dust does not stay in one place. It is carried by air currents around the globe. For example, when the giant meteor struck the earth 65 million years ago, the molten rock that was thrown into the air by the impact circulated around the globe and when they fell back to earth caused world wide forest fires. The dust from that impact also blocked the sun throughout the earth.  When the dust fell to the ground it covers all land surfaces. That is why there is an iridium rich layer of dust everywhere on earth dated to that particular time, not just at the site of impact in the Yucatan Peninsula.

    Yellowstone erupting would not cause a nuclear winter.

    A nuclear winter would be cause by radiation (like a nuclear bomb), not a massive dust cloud which would cause climate disruptions, almost certainly.

    The severity and actual outcome of such a catastrophic event is something no one could predict.
