I lived in So Cal for 37 years and now reside in Corpus Christi... All I can say is I hate it here........The heat, humidity, fire ants and of course the Texas state bird......the mosquito. They say the people in Texas are friendlier but I have not found that to be true. I would give anything to be back home but until the property prices come down this is where I reside...

I would rather live in CA than Texas and so would most people. But house prices are four times higher on average in CA so very few people can actually afford a house. One poster mentioned he rents a tiny 2 bedroom apartment for his family of 4. There just isnt room and you can get a 4 bedroom huge new brick house in Texas for $150k. Those Californians are seeing how affordable Texas is and realise they can live a much better quality of life because the costs of living is so much lower. I am from south FL and Texas is a bargin by comparsion.

Corpus Christi must have brutal weather, because it's so South.

I believe he's speaking from a political point of view.

This state does have friendly people. But like any other states, there are a-holes that you just want to punch in the face.
I notice alot of Californians (mainly from the LA area) who live here, and I here mostly good things. You just might have been around the wrong people. Texas isn't perfect, but California or any other state isn't perfect either. You gotta take the bad with the good. No disrespect but doesn't California have more problems than any other state in the U.S.? Just askin'.

Oh and there are cleaner and safer cities in this state than Houston and Dallas, like my city. And no, we don't belong to Dallas.

True ;Mckinney, Plano, Frisco are all excellent suburban areas with little crime, great schools and an upscale lifestyle. Seems that many who research Dallas look at the stats for 'Dallas' then paint the entire area with the same brush. Personally, I wouldn't live in Dallas, but the burbs around Dallas are pretty nice. I too came from San Diego (4 months ago). It's really no where near as bad here as some make it out to be.

That's true. Apparently, if you live in within a 30 mile radius of Dallas, you live IN Dallas. That even goes for my city, which has a population of over 603,000. I hate that. But to all you Californians, all of Texas ain't that bad.
