I don't think people seek out southeast Oklahoma to live in drier heat. It's surely noticeably a little drier though, than living on the coast. Everything should be less expensive there than in the Oklahoma City and Tulsa areas.

My sister went to college in Wilburton and all I remember about these little towns is they are SMALL. I mean, really, really small. If that is what you're looking for, great!



And the heat is not dry here. Oklahoma is incredibly humid in the spring, summer and fall.

Drier heat? Compared to a sauna? Eastern Oklahoma gets pretty steamy.

If you really want to get serious about dry heat in Oklahoma, go live in Boise City. It's very rural and isolated if you also want that, too. The scenery is lacking, though. But interesting how the flatness changes over to buttes, after you drive not very far to the west.

I live near the area your talking about and it is humid. Just finished my morning walk and my eyes are burning from both humidity and whatever else is in the air here.

Cost of living is cheap. That it does have going for it.
