if your reason for not relocating is property tax, then your arguement is quite valid because we won't deny the fact that you are looking at 3% tax (though we don't have state tax if that will make it any better). BUT weather? i'm telling you you are getting it wrong.

anyway, goodluck in finding a place on earth that doesn't get bad weather, or even natural disasters. give me a few bad storms a year, but not 9 months of rain, or 4 months of extremely cold or boling hot weather, or 30 inches of snow, or 15 hurricanes, or frequent earthquake...

I was "no kidding' to sapphire's post. I should have quoted.

The bottom line is that there are weather issues everywhere. Snow in the upper midwest and northeast, wild fires and earthquakes in California, hurricanes along the gulf coast, blizzards in Colorado. It's a matter of picking your poision. I was simply trying to convey that the last month has been the exception, not the rule, weather wise. If your decision was based solely on the weather in San Antonio I didn't want you to have an inaccurate picture of what our weather is like. However, if you don't want thunderstorms and flash floods, don't move to San Antonio. I don't want earthquakes, so I won't move to California. See? It's just a matter of finding out what works for you. My heart will not be broken because you're choosing somewhere else over San Antonio.

And how have you been watching the weather if you're in California?You mean you have been going to weather.com, huh?

It's one thing to never have experienced Texas weather, it's another thing to think you know how it is from the internet. Live a little, some rain and thunder/lightning isn't as scary as you think it is.
Snob? What the heck are you talking about? All I stated was the fact that the weather in San Antonio is not for me. You guys get all defensive about the weather.

FYI, the ones I responded to were not helping me, but questioning me and being sarcastic.

I check the weather reports on mysa.com. Are you going to deny the severity of last night's storm? How about the one a couple of weeks ago with "Tornado Warnings"? And the one a few weeks before that, and so on...
That might be "normal" for you folks out there, but not for me! Is that so hard to understand? Tornadoes, hail, hurricanes, severe thunderstorms and ice is not something I want to live in.

He's chastising any native San Antonian who is trying to educate him a little about the weather, weather we have been experiencing for 10, 20, 30 years.

Yet he wants an out of state posters opinion on the weather, wth?

We are trying to tell him how this has been a freak year so far but he insults us, damn.

Have you ever had a state income tax deduction? If you did, then you would know it's basically nothing! I would rather pay 1% and state income that takes pennies rather than 3% property tax.

I decided to stay put for now where the weather is very uneventful. FYI, there are no frequent earthquakes here.

Bayag I can see where you are coming from. I grew up in California and recently moved here in January. I will be completely honest and tell you that California has the best weather I have ever experienced. Now that being said, that was the only thing I loved about Cali. So if you only base where you live on that...then yes Cali is the best place. Now SA weather...if you only looked at the reports then I think you don't really understand it. Yes last night was loud and tons of rain....but that lasted one night...today is beautiful. It comes and goes...and trust me, my fiance is an avid golfer and if rain was an issue we would have already gone back to CA.

Tornadoes, ok.

Hail, Ok.

Hurricanes, ok.

Severe thunderstorms, ok.

Ice, ok.

My suggestion, you might wanna build a house 200 feet below the surface of the earth.

I have noticed that the California transplants that I have met so far, who think San Antonio is sooooooo great have come from not-so-nice neighborhoods of California such as Stockton, Salinas, or Compton. It is good that they had the common sense to cash of of the ghettos in Cali and move their families to a better neighborhood and lifestyle here in San Antonio. I am a transplant from San Diego and I moved to a neighborhood that was comparable to my San Diego neighborhood. I like my beautiful big house (McMansion) but I think you are making the right decision in not moving here. If you don't like LA check out SD.

Also last night there was a "Tornado Watch" maybe that's nothing to the locals here, but since tornadoes are something I'm not familiar with, I was really scared for myself and my family.

I absolutely want an out of staters opinion so it won't be biased like yours and a couple others here! I'm catching on to you and your act buddy. I've read a few of your posts and according to you everything in San Antonio is perfectly rosy.
