Hello, I am looking at moving from a cold northern state to San Angelo, TX. I have used google image to look at many pictures of the area. It seems it does not get too humid there. I like the size of the city and there are many jobs in my field. I really like mesquite trees, cactus, palms,..etc. Desert type plants. I like that it is not totally flat around there too, it appears there are some rugged type areas with rolling hills.


Does San Angelo get very humid? Are there rolling hills around it? Is it a desert like landscape? I want to go down there and see for myself. I just thought maybe I could get a little insight here first. Thanks

Ok sounds great. Do you think palm trees could be planted and be ok?

We had some desert palm trees on the ASU campus back when I was a student. They aren't native to the area, but they will grow if you plant them.

My main concern is the humidity. When i think of Texas I think humidity. I have been to Austin and San Antonio and felt it was pretty humid there. It sounds like San Angelo is not as humid as it's more West. I just looked at weather.com and it's around 80% humidity currently, which seems kinda high.

Angelo just got 3.5 inches of rain so thats why its humid.Its normally pretty dry but not as dry as Midland.

What are the types of agriculture around San Angelo? Are there irrigated crops? I know West Texas has lots of cotton. I would assume there is some cotton, wheat, sorghum, maybe some corn? Probably some cattle operators too?
