I do a pretty good amount of that too (talking to myself).

I do too. I enjoy an intelligent conversation and no arguments. How about you?

Husband and I are moving from WA, his home state, to TX, my home state. I have been here for twelve years and have been cold that long. I am eager for warm weather most of the year. I actually miss the 100 degree days and the heat, and having a pool I can use most of the year.

He is moving because he knows I hate it here. I moved here for my federal job 12 years ago. Lots of road trips planned, from driving to see the bluebonnets, to the Texas gulf coast, New Orleans, multiple Santa Fe trips, etc.

His four children have kids in college, and they are all planning to relocate so there is no reason for him to stay here.

We will be purchasing a house a year after we move, to give us time to check out areas we might want to reside.

I totally understand about the moving away from the cold Do you have a specific area in mind to look at when you first arrive in TX?

Hill Country of TX is a good escape from my WA home during the 9 months of drizzle. I keep a small rural home and cheap car at each spot (rented out home with cabin for me).

We will be living in Fort Worth, my home town. Probably purchase a home in the Marine Creek area north of Downtown.

I've actually been researching the FW area to move to (I'm now retired). It seems to have a lot to offer. Do you think it's too big a city for a retiree to get around in and enjoy? Seems it's experienced explosive growth recently.
