OH is pretty much FLAT.
I don't know what parts of Ohio you have been to, but southeast Ohio is definitely NOT flat. Anyway, I am also from Columbus and looking to get out of here for a while. I like Columbus but the winters are dreary and I have been year for too long. We are considering Durham/Duke which both seem to be on the upswing these days. Several other places in consideration, but as far as climate and geography, Durham is definitely the nicest of them. We shall see!

If you've never been south of Columbus you would think it's flat...those darn glaciers!!

Default confusion

My wife and I are trying to decide if columbus ohio is better than charlotte nc. Here is a little boring history. We are origionaly from maine. We decided 1 yr ago to move because the cost of living is significantly less and to money is significantly better. My wife being a nurse and myself being an HVAC service tech, we are able to live just about anywhere, but our 4 yr old daughter is going to be starting school soon and there seems to be more opertunity for private schools in columbus than charlotte, plus we have family and friends in columbus and no friends in charlotte. I like cold winters and snow especially around the christmas, but financially I need to know if utility costs are the same if not a little less. Insurances are not an issue because our jobs offer some what better payment offers. Job opertunity is the same for my wife and I, so no pay cut. If anyone has lived in columbus and is familiar with utility cost and now lives near charlotte and can tell the comparison it would be great. The time we have spent in columbus, there seems to be a lot to do, but I find it the same in charlotte since I came from a town in maine of about 5000 people. Thanks for the insite if anyone has any.
