I may be moving to the Dalhart area within the next month or so if I get a promotion I put in for. I would love to get to know more about the area before I get there, and I would really appreciate getting to know people there as well. Even though I am 49, this will be my first time moving so far away from family and friends, and my first time ever being separated from my grown sons. It is an exciting opportunity, but it is also a bit frightening. Anyone out there need a new friend?

If it's like the Oklahoma panhandle, then the Dalhart area has been having one of the worst droughts ever.

Dalhart was in the center of the Dust Bowl droughts, so they're familiar with drought. About a month ago, I read The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl by Timothy Egan (Amazon has it), and it features Dalhart, the Xit Ranch and the surrounding areas.

It's in Texas but real close to the Oklahoma panhandle.

My thoughts exactly. I'll move this to the Texas forums.

Dalhart is an isolated town in the Panhandle that has some mean dust storms, wind storms, and winter storms. That's about all that I know about the town.

If the people there are like those in other Panhandle towns, you should have no problem making friends. The Panhandle has some of the friendliest people on the planet.

It has very cold winters for Texas, but that doesn't mean the summers aren't hot.

Default Thanks for the replies

It was nice to see the replies to my post. I appreciate that. I thought I would know something about my job very soon, but it looks like the interview won't be until August. Looks like I will need to pack plenty of water and a very warm coat. Thanks again. Any Dalhart folks out there?
