I noticed Augusta ranked third in percentage growth tied with DC and Austin...

While the state of GA will always greatly rely on the city of Atlanta... Augusta is really the future of Georgia... Today there was a article about a multi-million algae facility opening in Augusta...

Firms in Seattle are hiring. I have no idea where they get the "cooling down" from.
