Me and my wife are thinking about moving to Utah. We have both lived in south ga for the better part of 20 years now. She finishes school this December, and after that is when we are thinking about moving. We are both sick of the 9 to 10 months of hot muggy weather. Then maybe 2 months of so so cold weather. And we both feel at this point in our lives that it's time for a change.
The job situation shouldn't be a problem. My wife works in the medical field and has already been looking up there. Of course we wouldn't do anything until she had one lined up. And I'm a auto mechanic,but hopefully I won't have to do that anymore. I've been looking around here for about a month now. And have seen people asking about the night life, the lds, schools Etc. What if someone wasn't worried about anything of those things. Main things me and my wife are worried about are peace and quite, and the crime. Maybe a little to the cost of living factor. But from what I've seen it's not that bad from there to here. We keep mostly to ourselves. We are just looking for a nice quite place to call home.

The Salt Lake area is full of families with lots of kids. Other than noise from kids, you should be able to find a place that's peaceful & quiet for the most part.

What areas of Utah are you considering? I'm guessing your wife's job will drive your decision as to where you will live. Will you be job searching too?

Utah is quite the opposite of Georgia climate wise. Since I'm a native Utahan, I don't care for humidity levels above 30% during the summer. I'd much rather slather on lotion & lip balm, use conditioner on my hair and eye drops for my eyes than be sticky all the time.

Well she has seen quite a few jobs around salt lake and such. I remember there were a few around the Layton area she had told me about. Yea I'll be job searching as well. But believe it or not she's going to let me semi retire, well that's how she puts it. 20 plus years of turning wrenches has taken its toll on me. Bad knee, back, etc. So I'm going finally get to try something else, what? I haven't the first clue lol.
As for the weather sounds like something I could learn to love really quick. It's gets very humid here during the summer. It gets around 80% to 100% down here most of the summer months.

I remember the days of 90 plus degree heat and 100% humidity in NJ. You couldn't pay me to move back there! I will take buying extra chapstick and lotion any day over that again!

Depends on where you come from...I moved from Jersey and was used to hearing about gangs from Philly, Trenton and Camden. In my eyes, Utah doesn't have a gang problem at all. Some people might view it differently.

Gang problems in Utah are very minimal. Don't sweat it.
It's a wonderful and beautiful place to live.
