There is absolutely no need for people to be insulting and thrashing OKC. I suspect the loudest are beyond clueless, and have never stepped foot anywhere near there.

Some of the nicest, most down to earth people I've known are from Oklahoma.
I agree fully. I see continued success for Oklahoma City.

And despite the implication, my comment isn't a dig on OKC. It's just that the comparison simply isn't fair, because I can't think of 2 cities that could be any more different.
Please don't think I was directing my post at you.

Weather is subjective in terms of SLC because they get snow and deal with salt, but yeah.. ..the scenery .. The I-80 approach into SLC is breath taking.

This is a weird pair to put up against each other. LOL. I can see lots of people preferring OKC if they don't want to put up with a busier, bigger city. If you want a quieter, suburban lifestyle and don't care about being in an aesthetically boring setting, then OKC is probably the better pick. OKC does have reasonable proximity to the West and Southwest, so that could be a plus as well.
