Where ya from, sberdrow?
Im from Portland Oregon, or CalifOregon a state also being invaded by the evil empire of California. I was kinda hopping Kellerfornia would be far enough away. Im a hypocrate however, as a Californian bought my house for cash, with no inspection. I was going to invest it all in a new way of life in Dallas/Fortworth. I found mega spraw from wall to wall. To Save some money in your fine little CITY, I would have to endure 5 months of nasty HUMIDITY.

"To Save some money in your fine little CITY, I would have to endure 5 months of nasty HUMIDITY."

Portland, Oregon... now I'm curious, do you guys out there know what sunshine looks like? I guess all that rain we had last month around here was more like what you're use to.
I have to say it finally quit raining here and my oh my Keller does have beautiful abundant sunshine.
Yeah, I just checked on that humdity and according to Weather Underground at 1:53 p.m. today it was at 42% with 91 degrees F and *partly cloudly* with winds blowing South at 14 mph.
All I can see out my window is sunshine, blue skys and whife fluffy clouds.
Ahhhhh now, that's a beautiful Summer day.
Looking at Portland, Oregon on that same site at the same time:
Humidity: 68%
Temp: 73 degrees F (is this the norm for mid-July temps??)
Scattered clouds
winds at 4 mph

So, are you living elsewhere in the Metroplex or in Oregon?

70 to 90 is normal. It has rained more than 60 inches in texas this year so Far, in Portland it averages between 38-45 inches a year. Dallas averages 36 inches a year. The humidity in the Pac NW is related it the morning mist. and is very cool.

As I'm sure you know, the rainfall the metroplex received occurred almost exclusively in the months of May and June!
As I'm sure you also know before that the metroplex was in a drought.
I read somewhere that Keller's average rainfall is 32 inches but I can't recall where I read that. Where did you find Dallas's stat?
Morning mists....cool humidity... so pretty damp most of the time.
So do you live in the metroplex or Portland??

only in the morning time maybe till 9am. My stats are from Wikapedia. You are correct about Kellerfornias rainfall, give or take a few tenths of a percent. I am from Lake Oswego, a suburb of Portland.

Not every town is for everybody but at least you found out Keller wasn't for you before you moved here and invested money and time. Surely you considered other areas or states? What about Austin? I hear they are pretty progressive down there. Did you consider Denver, Colorado?

Funny you should ask, yes I did actually live in Austin, after I rejected Kellerfornia. Austin, with its hill country, many parks, and yes you guessed right, progressive attitudes, was a great choice. I could not take the heat or the lack of pine trees. I then looked into Colorado very seriously, even obtained a job there in Denver. I could not shake the altitude sickness, and neither could my wife. She was only sleeping 3 hours a night, and she normally gets 9-10. I had mild headaches and was always thirsty, no matter how much water I drank. Tell you what though, it was pretty to meet my expecations and more, there were mountains, and it was a dry air. I ended up back in the Pac NW. I miss Colorado.

I am a native Texan, and currently live out of Keller, which is in the Dallas/Ft Worth area. Prices of homes range anywhere from $100,000 to several million. While the immediate area of Keller is flat, the Fort Worth, Denton area is rolling hills, green grass and trees. Some things we keep secret in Texas since we don't want it to get crowded and mess up our landscape. This is a bible belt area, with lots of just good country people!

Just wondering, and I'm truly curious so don't take it as jab, but if you don't like Keller and you never lived here and you have nothing good to say about it why are you here posting about it?

Very nice post, Txlady I'm afraid, though, that the secret has got out.
