I'd like to throw in a quick plug for Albuquerque.. Although the cost of living is a little high and the average income a little low (not really bad but a little) we have perfect weather. No hurricanes, tornadoes, floods or snow storms. It doesn't get really hot in the summer or really cold in the winter. It rarely gets above 100 in the summer and it only snows 2 or 3 times a winter and not very much. We have a high tech culture here because of the national laboratories (Sandia in Albuquerque and Los Alamos a couple hours north) We're not booming like Houston maybe, but we don't have busts either112

Albuquerque is a nice place to live but in no way does it have a very favorable income to cost of living ratio. Most nice places to live don't. The labs jobs pay fairly well for the area, but they are government salaries that are far lower than the professionals who work there could make in the private sector elsewhere.

Just look at a popularity/desirability list. The more desirable the more expensive, the less desirable the cheaper. Supply and Demand =)
