What we do is highly classified, so much so that even we aren't even allowed to know what we are doing!

If you've ever watched the Men in Blackmovies, you'd have a good idea but we gave up the big V8 cars for Toyotas a few years back.

Cheers! M2

Vzwkelly,

I lived in Omaha for two years(Air Force wife), at the time we were newly married with no children. Several families we know loved it there and settled there. It's very diversed, cost of living is low and the job market is decent. Many of the same qualities of San Antonio. My son was diagnose on the autism spectrum while stationed in England last year. We had both Omaha and San Antonio on our list to areas to move, based upon special needs/education programs. We have been really impressed with San Antonio. We just bought a home here and they is always something to do. Lots of places to eat and shop. So from someone who has lived in both places, I would pick San Antonio!

I moved to San Antonio from Omaha a little more than a year ago. Omaha is an underrated city. For a city its size, it has an amazing performing arts center and art museum, thanks to all the private donations made by the likes of Warren Buffet and Walter Scott. The Millard and the Papillion / La Vista school districts on the west side of town are top notch. Plus, there's no traffic.
All that being the case, we are so glad we moved to San Antonio. Naturally, the weather is an upgrade. San Antonio is also a growing city, so you'll find a lot new subdivisions and stores. Plus, there is so much more to experience here. San Antonio may move a little faster than Omaha, but you won't find a more laid back big city. As for schools, NEISD seems fairly comparable to the top schools in Omaha.
As with any city there are areas where crime is an issue. However, north Omaha has just as many drive-by shootings and gang issues as any section of San Antonio. I lived in west Omaha and now live on the northside of San Antonio and have felt extremely safe in both places.
Compared to Omaha, where most people are born and raised cornhuskers, San Antonio has a lot of transplants. In many ways this makes it easier to meet people and feel apart of the community sooner.
Best wishes with your decision. We love it here in SA, but you probably can't go wrong either way.

Smile Thanks for the feedback

Thanks to everyone for their feedback. I think based on our discussions, the job and the great info everyone shared with me... we are going to try to head to San Antonio. My husband would not need to switch companies, and I feel my son's needs will be met there.

I realize we will have to deal traffic... but it can't be worse than DC! As far as his job...yes he works for someone who works with the government... the local can't be disclosed! I keep asking and I get vague answers.....so I am going to pick the place that I want!

We are going to try to focus on the Northeast ISD school district.
Right now we are trying to figure out the whole real estate market there. We don't like being on a small lot, but it sounds like we would have to travel much further north to get more space... and I don't think it would be worth it if my husband had a long commute.

Thanks to all! If anyone has any specific pointers on places to avoid in the Northeast ISD.... let me know.
