I checked out Portland, Or, it looks like it is raining all the time there?
I'm going to recommend a place I'm hoping to be out of in another year---Dallas. My wife and I suffocate in the summer heat---and it's not near as bad here as in Houston!!

But for your kind of work, Dallas is becoming a hot market. Our landlord is a realtor and she told me about two weeks ago, that she is making offers on houses at full price and getting beat out when someone else comes in and offers one or two grand more. She said she is telling her clients to not hesitate if they see something they want because, at least in north Dallas/Plano/Richardson area the market has heated up.

We get snow here about once per year---more frequently there will be a gulley washer thunderstorm with some hail, or once in awhile an ice storm. But Dallas has the advantage of a lot of urban territory, no state income tax, and reasonable car registration. Sales tax is just over 8% on everything but groceries and prescription drugs.

The wife and I are hoping to move to Idaho when she joins me in retirement next year. We want four seasons, and don't mind cold weather if the humidity is dry--like Colorado (expensive) or Idaho (lower COL than TX, and that's hard to do).

Good luck.
