I grew up in San Diego, and moved to Dallas several years ago. It's a wonderful place with lots to do and see. Once you get over the weather changes (either too hot or too cold) you'll enjoy the pace, the opportunities and the people. I've enjoyed everything from the nightclubs to theaters to restaurants. Most of the people I've grown close to are from out of state also, which means that this area has become a mecca for those seeking decent jobs, affordable housing and a place where family means something.

God bless you!

We all read on here how great the weather is there and going to the beach, walking, etc but then you see this stupid show on E! called "Sunset Tan" (or something like that - it was on the tv at the nail salon ) and they show how really popular this place is. Why not just go lay out by the pool? The beach? Ride bikes w/ a tank top on? I don't get it. Oh, and this idiot mother on this show brought her YOUNG daughter in to get a spray tan and all the lotions and all so that she would not be "white" in her school picture. WTH!!!!! This poor girl was about 7 years old and she was not PALE and had a nice color w/ her blonde hair (hate to think if that was fake too ) and the after pic was HORRIBLE! It was WAY TOO fake. Oh, and the price tag: $1300. And I won't even let my kids get their nails painted at the nail salon.
tanning salons are great for nude tanning. Cant sunbath nude in california. Plus, its more controlled.

Wooooo, put the breaks on here. Nude sunbathing. Now were going in the right direction.

You guys have to admit, weeks without any sun is getting OLD. It's depressing. I go back to SD this weekend, so I'll get another fix, then back here to storms again. I thought the sun was out here 300+ days a year. Reminds me of Portland.

Eh, I've been to a couple of nude beaches. It's a very small demographic subset that is actually pleasing to look at, some are just average, and others, OH MY!

I jsut arived from pnw 6 weeks ago and all Ive seen here is clouds (l live in austin). Do you folks get much sun out here other than your hot July and Aug that Ive been warned and warned about? When its cloudy, its pretty miserable. At least in PNW its cool and non humid. They are having fantastic weather there. Cali having great weather too, when do we have the nice weather?

Hey Socketz, when does your family join you for good in Dallas?

We drive back here together the 3rd week of June. These last few weeks are going very slow though. To be honest, if I had to do this again, I would never be separated from the family this long. Last weekend (long and dreary) was a true test. Again, not a desirable scenario at all, but it's what we felt had to be done for the kids to transition correctly.

This has been a wetter spring than last year. But given the choice of a wet spring or hellish spring and summer like last year, I'll take the rain. And in all honesty we have needed the water.

Speaking of water and lake levels, thought everyone would appreciate this link:

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Fort Worth District

It's nice to see that only two lakes in the entire Trinity River basin are not full... and they're not really down that much. Many lakes are above their conservation pool levels. Very nice to see indeed!

Default Brian isn't that awesome!

Last summer/spring sux big time, but I am glad to see the lakes up. Ironically we moved to Georgia where it is now in a drought and it is looking better back home (which we will be God willing before the holidays).
