Look at tornadoes in the Midwest and South lately. Like I said, **** can happen everywhere.

I don't think that four-letter word that was *'d out was "soil liquefaction."

I think he's talking about natural disasters in general. You just gotta decide which one affects you the least: mudslides, earthquakes, snowstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc.

^Yep. I gotta say tho, these tornadoes look scarier than any snowstorm. Earthquakes dont happen too often, but never know.

Oh, ok,I have to agree with you there,tornadoes and blizzards are a real B__!

But I would also put mud/landslides,sinkholes and soil liquefaction at the top.

I really hate surprises,so those disasters that happen without any warning and no way to prepare/escape are even worse,IMO.

Yes we actually did, but the pay couldn't justify the move for me. Both cities offered relatively similar living experiences and MPLS paid significantly more so I choose MPLS.

A good substitute could be Denver, Seattle, Portland, San Diego or maybe Chicago or Boston (not for size obviously). Obviously, none of these places are perfect either, and where you gain on the one hand u will also lose on the other hand. Three years is a bit short but if u can't handle the cold u wouldn't be the first. Just know that you will potentially struggle to find that "it" place based in ur preferences.
Fair enough. I have never been to Austin so I'm not quite sure what it's like there? I know its not as big as MSP but was just thinking "progressive" vibe.

Why not? I definitely think it's a lot more mild.

You mean because there's all kinds of warning for tornadoes and blizzards? Mud/landslides/avalanches are fairly predictable.

Look, you're welcome to any kind of unreasonable fear that you want. But take a look at this list of US natural disasters, and the death tolls. And then come back and tell us what kind of an event you're more likely to die from. And by the way ... please also note how many of them happened in Portland.
