My home state (that I just moved away from to escape winter) has beautiful green summers and the lwave change in the fall, which is something I do not enjoy. I do not like the fall colors, it means winter is on the way. I'd rather live someplace where I can sunbathe year round, like I did today! (and where the leaves stay attached to the trees )

I don't know about Tyler, but Watertown has the 1000 Islands Region and nice small communities like Sackets Harbor, Clayton, Alexandria Bay and Cape Vincent. Watertown's South Side around Washington Street is nice and shopping options have increased on Arsenal Street. I was stationed at Fort Drum and besides the very cold winter days at times, it has beautiful scenery and is largely safe. You can also take trips to great Canadian cities such as Ottawa and Kingston in Ontario, along with Toronto and Montreal. Syracuse is about an hour away and the Adirondacks are close by as well.

Lol--no. Tyler is in East Texas, AKA THE "Piney Woods". Northeast Texas is not "plains". The Panhandle is "Plains". Southeast Texas is not "semi-tropical forest". Maybe on your one trip from Dallas to Texarkana you were on a road that was built on cleared land, rather than through a "forest"? It's OK. We Texans understand.

I got a call from Mom this morning... it just started snowing and they are expecting 5-6 ft of lake effect snow. That's feet, not inches.

She wanted to let me know in case the power and/or phones go out.

Like I said... it's like living in Antarctica up there.

Just drove that road 5 days ago-plenty of trees and green-that was after driving all the way up the east texas border from LA and it was full of trees (mainly pine) but plenty of them.

Hence, the region's name, "The Piney Woods".

It can be, but it can vary. I've seen it where it was dry and sunny for long periods of time in the winter and I've seen it get very cold or with a lot of snow. Outside of winter though, it is a nice, beautiful area and in a good location to cities in the Northeast and Canada. If you like the outdoors, it is close to Lake Ontario, the Adirondack Mountains, the 1000 Islands and even beaches.

Just joking around here, but releasing it this fall could make you a millionaire instantly (and why live in Phoenix as a millionaire when you can go to coastal southern California and enjoy life as its meant to be lived ).

Um. Typo...that was supposed to be "leaves". I hate when they change in the fall. U-G-L-Y.

I want nothing to do with "i" anything, thankyewverymuch But, I'd stay in Phoenix where it is nice and hot. I have no interest in living on a coast.

Have you seen the beauty of Upstate NY in the summer. Just fantastic. Winters are worth waiting for spring summer and fall. In Texas, Spring, Summer, and fall are worth waiting for winter. Tell me which downtown looks more beautiful

Watertown NY:




Tyler, TX:



Watertown, NY looks more beautiful in my opinion and there is more to it than weather. Culturally, Watertown is more likely to suit me than Tyler. My job is set (as mentioned in my first post) and NY quality of life suits me if employed. Finally, there is a lot of outdoor activity to engage in. Skiing, ice fishing, and polar jump in winter, downtown blossoms in spring, hitting thousand islands in summer, and hiking in the Adirondacks for fall colors. If I want to bag hot gals, a ride to Rochester will do. In the case of Tyler, um.. No hotties till you reach Dallas.
