Arkansas does not get snow, except on very, very rare occasions, when they do get some it pretty much closes it down. They don't have the equipment to handle it. They do get very rarely, ice storms, like they do in Dallas. Ice storms very rare, pretty much closes everything down.

That said, Arkansas is a beautiful state. Cost of living is generally low in most areas. One thing strange, your car is taxed on your state property value when you file your yearly income taxes, not sure exactly how that works.
I am a bit confused; are you saying AR is dry heat? and are you saying we get very litle snow? Do you actually live here and for how long? It has been a few years since we have had a lot of snow, but in our 10 years here, at least 4 or 5 have had enough snow to keep us pretty much home bound 4 or 5 times a year. OK, not like Minnesota I agree. As for the heat, though nothing like Dallas it is humid and Dallas is very humid. Again, not compared to Houston, but still almost impossible to spend any time out doors in the summer even at night.

It looks like snow although not near as much as in Holly's pic from Newton County.

This was actually Dec 21st 2017

I didn't see any information on how hot and Humid it is there in the summer. Does it snow there?
I have never lived where it snows.
I have only lived in Los Angeles (Beach Cities), and Fremont, Ca. Housing and taxes are crazy here.
I might have to take a 50% cut in pay, cor more, but with everything cheaper, I might want to try it out.
I'm nearing retirement age, 57, my wife is retired. I am a CNC Machinist-Programmer, and there are a few jobs there, but I could also program for companies anywhere, from home. My wife was a realestate broker for 30 years here in Fremont, and wants to maybe invest in an income property or two.
After looking on Craigslist I was in Shock, My god, I could have a Mini Mansion for 75% less than I pay now.
A 3 bedroom 2 bath house 1200 sq. ft. here is over 1 million.
Any thoughts would be appreciated especially from someone that moved there from a big city.
Not all Native Californians are snow flakes (Liberals)
People that live in a place for 20 years or more, either hate it or love it.
I hate California. I feel like I am a foreigner in my own land.
Time to move.
I need to look at my old posts since I'm still here in Fremont.
Is it ok to go to Church and pray to God for for my wife to give me a BJ?
So the just of things is that Fort Smith is a Dump.
I kinda figured that, but how much of a Dump? It doesn't look like a Ghetto, Graffiti, Gangs, Crime, I don't see a large minority population, like Los Angeles.
Silicon Valley is Dump, when you consider what you get for your hard earned money.
California taxes are ridiculous.
Lexus Lanes, $1.50 a mile.
Gas here is $3.85 a gallon.
I suppose the price of housing is the biggest reason I want to move, since it takes the biggest bite out of my paycheck.
