That's an excellent analogy Advenio. Oh, and welcome to the forums!

Thread starter, I agree w/ the 2 previous posters have said. Dallas is big and more like a major city, but you have more crime, traffic, etc. that typically come w/ big cities. FW gives you urban and rural all in one locale.
Yes, we'll be moving in the coming months, to Eastern Pennsylvania. Fort Worth has become my home and Texas has treated me VERY well. I'll miss it. The one thing I won't miss are the dog days of Summer. But, I will be missing the Fall and Winter for sure!

Best wishes with your move. I'm originally from NJ, so if you have any questions on that side of the Delaware River, don't hesitate to ask. Yes, summers are nice there. If you like snow, you'll enjoy the winters there. But your newfound love of snow might get old after a couple storms. j/k At least it's not as bad (in terms of cold and snow) as Buffalo.

I hope you still pop in every once in a while in the FW sub-forum.

Thanks beowulf, I'll be here in Texas for several more months at least.

Oh, I'll be on here quite a bit after the move for sure. I'm sure the Winters will be a shock to me, as I've lived here almost half my life and am from Oklahoma where the Winters aren't much different, although I have lived in snowy climates before.

I've been down here so long though that my blood is Texas thin..

I'm sure the first couple of snowstorms will be a novelty, and then grow really really old fast!

That's a little odd that you're going to literally sweat it out in TX during the summer and early fall and then move to the east just in time for winter.

I'm just teasing; I'm sure weather isn't the main factor on why you're moving. Yes, the snow will be cool at first (literally and figuratively), but then it might get old. Or maybe you'll love it and become an avid skier. There are some good mountains out there near the Poconos.

It's beautiful country up there and it's not far from the Poconos. I have skied before, when I lived in Reno I used to go up to Mount Rose and ski now and then.

Nice, you're going to love it there then. Housing will cost much more, but I'm sure you've taken that into acct.

Actually, housing is CHEAPER than here. I'm talking about the Bethlehem area. It's not a whole lot cheaper, but it is cheaper.

This one is 79K, and is 4 Bed, 1.5 Bath
1,449 Sq. Ft




$118,900
4 Bed, 1.5 Bath
1,483 Sq. Ft.




$125,900
3 Bed, 1.5 Bath
1,555 Sq. Ft.





$134,900
5 Bed, 1.5 Bath
2,083 Sq. Ft.



$149,900
3 Bed, 1.5 Bath
1,140 Sq. Ft.

Single Family Property, Area: Lower Nazareth, County: Northampton, Year Built: 1900, Two story, Basement, Laundry room


Of course these are all older homes, and not on large lots, but that's pretty much the lifestyle up there.

Oh, and I know this is off topic. Sorry!
