Austin has some pretty hilly parts.

If the natural features in Texas are just as great as California's and the cost of living remains lower and the economy remains strong, there will be no reason to live in California. And right now, Texas has a better economy AND better weather and natural features than most of the US, particularly when compared to the Midwest and the North and South East.

I'd rather live in Phoenix or Las Vegas than anywhere in Texas

Texas is too hot for me. But, let's hope every Californian moves to Texas so that I can get cheap real estate.

If Texas is too hot for you, then California will likely also be too hot, except in the most expensive parts.

Isn't Texas a lot more humid though? That is way worse IMO

East Texas, yes.

West Texas, not so much.

I find the humidity in West Texas comparable to Southern California.. maybe a little lower on average though it varies a lot more day to day than SoCal.

You don't need to be wealthy by any means to enjoy much better weather in California than Texas.
