Take a look at Greenville SC. Nice city and growing rapidly. It still has four seasons but none of which are extreme. I moved to Lenoir NC last year for weather and so far it has been perfect. I am retired so employment isn't an issue. The employment picture locally is not a healthy one.

The temperature gauge in my car today said 120

Why the heck am I moving to this place............now bug giant bugs?
bugs and tornados? My worst fears!

If you get a bug man to spary the house and property on a monthly basis will you still have them.

Thats a different kinna Jewlery Lol... Be careful wearing that during bug mating time.

Bugs ,especially June bugs , Borer bees even crickets can be entertaining. We would take thread and tie it to the hind leg of june bugs and let them fly circles.
Borer bees usually found near exposed wood on your house. To start you get a badminton raquet and try and hit them with it . It is harder than you think after you master that try and use a thin board to swat them with.
Last the Cricket well its peaceful and quiet in the Mountains at night no traffic nothing but the crickets singing if you listen hard enough you can hear one fart every now and then.

lol Well, we do have quite a few bugs. But when I was in Florida for a couple days in March, they seemed to have a lot more bugs than we do. As soon as I stepped out of my car I noticed them in the air everywhere. My goodness! lol
