We're thinking of relocating our family from southern Louisiana to the Fargo area. We are currently expecting our 5th child, our other children are 9, 5, 4 and 1. What are some nice places to raise a family (good schools, easy access to restaurants/shopping/etc., low crime?) Any tips for someone moving from a very hot climate to a very cold one?? The weather is my main concern, since my children bundle up in jackets when it's in the 50s and 60s and have never seen snow in their lives.

Children will adjust--particularly the younger ones. Even for adults, what feels cold at the beginning of the winter--30 degrees--by March will be welcomed as a "nice day."
All of the Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo metro has the reputation of being very liveable and great for families. Where you pick to live depends of a lot of factors. The big one is where would you be working? How long of commute would you want (even though most commutes in FM are relatively short)? What activities are the kids in? What type of school would you want for them? Older house or newer house? Trees or prairie?
DaninEGF, a meteorologist, has posted great summaries about the weather in ND and how his kids deal with it. Browse the previous threads and you'll get a pretty good idea.
