Who has the better water situation?

Atlanta still seems to be in a drought, but I dont think Dallas has any major rivers?

i know that Britney Spears, and a lot of other performers will pick Atlanta above Dallas because Atlanta attracts many people from all over the SE... We also have a larger airport and many corporattions.... But don't let those statistics that has NOTHING whatsoever to do with quality of life for residences here. Don't be fool by misleading statistics.

Atlanta is about the exact opposite of that. It's laid out a lot more like old Northeastern cities, with a lot of walkable neighborhoods, classy old homes, rolling hills, trees, etc.
Hmm...lets not forget the patches and stretches on roads where there are ugly, trashy developments in Atlanta...Not a hater of ATL at all, I like it a lot, but there needs to be more unbiased input

Lakewooder, back there a few posts (sorry, don't know how to quote) you posed the question of what if you based your opinions of ATL on Newnan? Oh dear friend of mine. Them's fightin' words.

I lived happily in Dallas for the last 15 years and lived in lots of great neighborhoods. Now I live in Newnan. Tell me a fully walkable area of Dallas that is has what the historic square of Newnan has to offer.

Crickets chirping. That's what I thought.

I've been in ATL for 7 years and would never recommend moving here. Ever! Too many reasons to list.

I almost think posters to threads older than a certain point should have to explain to the moderator why they have something constructive to add to a discussion that's long ago died out, before their post is added. Needless to say, that way some of the drive-by griping and miscellaneous score-settlers could be curtailed somewhat.
