Hello all, the company I work for has an opening in Oklahoma City and I need to express my interest of relocating there to be considered for the position. I am interested in gathering as much information as I can about the area, year round weather conditions, tornadoes, bugs, climate, shopping, taxes, best area to live, etc etc etc ... .... any and all information would be very much appreciated and welcomed. Thank you in advance.

I moved my family from southern california to Edmond,OK in October of 2006. What I can say so far is that the general quality of life is very good, cost of living is fairly low and we have not missed anything because there is a lot going on in OKC.

If you can afford Edmond it would strongly recomend it. It is a very nice town with good services all around and it has just about everything you will need including good schools.

As far as the weather goes... For the most part it is good. But when it is bad it is very bad. Winters are mild for the most part but all the grass turns brown because nobody overseeds thier lawns. We had 3 winter storms including a sleet storm that seemed to take the city a very unreasonable amount of time to clean up.

As for the twisters, they have them every year in the area. They have more F2+ twisters than any other area of the country. On average a roof removing F2+ twister will hit your house every 10,000 years but I did buy a house that had a storm shelter becuase you just never know when your 10,000 years is going to come due.

Given the fact that there is no perfect place to like, I think that the 15% of the time you are going to deal with very bad weather is well worth the overall quality of life (no traffic, low costs, nice people, good schools, lots of things to do, etc).

Good Luck With Your Move
