Looking at a place called Hampton Cove south of Huntsville. Wife wants warmer too.

We'd be going from this (Pikes Peak in the background)



To this: (Hampton Cove)

As nice as that is I could never live in boring suburbia. It's just not for me.

If I didn't have four kids, I might be thinking otherwise too. You got to do what you got to do.

True. Kids are the main priority. If I had kids I would probably move to a suburb outside of Boston. I respect what you did though. You made the right choice for your family which is something many people won't do because their too selfish and still want the city life.

Ive lived in southern california all my life, and barely even remember the big ones.
earthquakes shouldn't be that big of an issue. If over 30,000,000 people live in california without worrying about them, you shouldn't either.

Like other's have mentioned, weather in other states is a lot worse. Last month near Milwaukee we had an earthquake and a tornado in the same week. I think we are technically outside tornado alley, but still get a lot. They thunderstorms are terrible and happen all of the time.

One thing most people wouldn't think of is the snowstorms. If it were to snow in most places of the country, school's and businesses close after an inch or two of snow. Here it takes a good 8-10 inches. We had a day with over 18 inches this year. When I'm working at the fire house on days like this, we literally can't sit down. Every time we get back from one call, we get toned out for another car accident. Depending on the car and the tires, you sometimes can't get it over 20 mph without losing control.

I'd take the possible risk of an earthquake over having all of those things any day.
