It sounds wonderful! I live in a small town now. It's a five blink (maybe) town, which means, if you blink more than 5 times you have missed us. From what I have researched so far, it sounds like a great place to live. Do you know anything about the school district there?

Asheville gets just a bit over a foot of snow annually on average. Temps are still fairly mild. Yes, snow is more than the piedmont, but if you are from up north, it isn't bad at all.

Most people send their kids to public school in Whiteville and Columbus County (2 school districts- 1 city, 1 county). A charter school just opened --- Roger Bacon Academy. School performance varies by the school. There is also a private school - Waccamaw Academy. There is a local community college that has a high school program.

lol Yeah, if you're from up north, the snow in Asheville might not bother you so much. For us Southerners though, yikes! lol

I hear many different things, weather, economy, qualiy of life. But I was just wondering if some of you could be more specific? What about the weather, what about the quality of life. What is it exactly that you feel you will have so much better here than wherever you live now?
WEATHER: Hurricans wont be such a threat
ECONOMY: Me an hubby wont have to work 3 jobs to make ends meet
(me 1 an him 2) witch mean more family time
Quality of life: my son will know what
TREES(been planted for more than 5 mins)
OPEN SPACE(more than a postage stamp)
LAKES(that are not man made)
OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES: biking, hiking, horses, pools, events, picnics.
we have some of these now but if you are not part of this group or that then your not welcome
SCHOOLS(they have pta's that really do some good)(parent envolvment that you can be proud of)(not have it so crowed that the teachers cant keep up with the kids names)
HOME: we will be able to buy(cant do that where we live now)
COMMUNITY: If I have a cookout in my new home my nieghboors will come
If I bake a cake for my new nieghboor they will eat it without fear that something is wrong with it
We can have friends of all races and creeds with out someone saying you shouldnt be ........blah blah blah

This is just of the top of my head I am sure I have some other things to add

I know North Carolina has the third highest rate of direct hits from hurricanes more than any other state besides Texas and Florida. This doesnt count the amount of tropical systems that come here from other states.
