I am moving from PA to Okmulgee. Please tell me everything you can.

I have never been there and know nothing about it.

What does a gallon of milk cost?

Heating oil?

Other basic costs?

Do stores like Target & Walmart exist?

Good school districts? I am a teacher and will need a teaching job.

My husband's job is in Okmulgee, but do we want to live in Okmulgee? Or is there a better town near by?

How much snow do you get?

What else do I need to know?

Some answers:

It's been a stagnant town for a long time but a new waste recycling plant coming in should help things out. One could do worse for a town in Oklahoma.

We use natural gas rather than heating oil in Oklahoma.

It seldom snows and when it does, it may be only several inches. A worse nuisance are ice storms, but they don't happen every year.

No doubt, there's a Wal-Mart, but no Target. Tulsa isn't very far from Okmulgee, and there will be much, much more shopping and other attractions to be found there.

All the schools in the area are decent. My kids are long gone so I don't know details.

Are there apartments to rent near the Green Country Technology Center on Loop 56. I am sending my son to school there in the fall. Also what is the nearest airport to Okmulgee?

Tulsa International is 35 miles north. I don't know about apartments in Okmulgee, there's a college there so there should be some. Okmulgee is in the Tulsa metro area but is about 20 miles outside of Tulsa's urbanized area.

I grew up in Oklahoma and have lived in Tx a good while but also in Pittsburgh Pa as well as N. NJ. I experienced culture shock back east but enjoyed it once I settled in. Some say when you enter Oklahoma, set your watch back 30 years. I see some truth in that and think that is a positive but depends on ones perspective. Also this is more true in the smaller towns than OKC or Tulsa I believe.

Go in expecting to enjoy it and the odds are improved that you will.
