Love your group of succulents , I am trying to grow them here in SWFL., ZONE 10 I am worried about all the rain. Any advice ?

Thanks for the comment! Aren't succulents AWESOME?! I love 'em! I'm not quite a pro, but I'd imagine an extra free-draining soil would be good. Here in zone 10b Southern California, I use a 1:1:1 mix of potting soil, perlite, and coarse grit sand. With your higher precipitation, maybe change my proportions to include more sand; that way, the extra water drains away instead of soaking in the organic matter provided by the potting soil. Best wishes, ktm6789!
