Well, I moved here from California where I lived in Santa Clara for 3 years and Orange county the 18 months prior...
Frankly, Texas is OK but I loved California.
- Is it completely over priced - oh yeah.
- Are you underpaid when compared to other states - absolutely.
- Does it goes against most of my core political beliefs - yep
If you had an opportunity would you move back - Damn Skippy I would.
Now I am not the average person - not even close.
Having lived 8 different states, and abut 12 or so completely different cities in those states I have come to enjoy certains things more than other. I also do not have children which changes the things people consider moving.
For me weather was never a big issue until I lived in CA, now I can say its at the top of my list. Just my $.05
