I thought I would like it too..and at first I did. It just wears on you month after month after month.
Your house will get to 85 easily in a few hours ...a/c will be cycling all day.
We lost the a/c this past summer for a few days...after the first day we had to get a hotel room...

You will love it here in the winter, though you may eventually miss seeing snow, but not to the point you would want to go back and live with snow. The toughest part you will probably have a hard time getting used to is the hot dry summers. Temperatures at or over 100the is common from mid July to mid Sept. Also rain is somewhat rare during the summer. I miss the cool, relatively speaking, summers and the green grass and rain of Ohio during the summer. But you definatley should have a job lined up before you get here.
Actually San Antonio gets a good amount of rain in the summer. Usually, not recently of course. In fact summers are typically wetter than winters, according to Wikipedia:

San Antonio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I come from SoCal, where you really don't see any rain in the summer, so maybe that's why I notice the summer rains.

Man, I wish I could.

Today is the warmest day we've had for a while. It's currently 42 degrees here, with a high of 56. From what I'm seeing, in SA it's currently 69 degrees with a high of 74 and low of 62. What I wouldn't give to have a LOW temp of the day be 6 degrees higher than our HIGH!

Guess Ohio sux. Many seem to agree.

I moved here from Columbus in 2008.

You might eventually miss the changes in the seasons and the lack of color over time, but on nice sunny days in the "winter" where you can go out in shorts and sandals make it all worth it.

Just don't underestimate the sun in the summertime... South Texas sun burns. The sun really does feel noticeably hotter on your skin than other places. 90 degree days are possible from late March to early November, and pretty much guaranteed May-September.

A typical San Antonio day in the summer - mornings are bad...muggy, sticky and cloudy. Afternoon will get less humid as the day goes on and the clouds burn off, then by 7-8 pm the drier mid/upper 90s will be the most pleasant, until it gets dark again and the mugginess returns.

Moved here from Dayton in July (military move)... Lot more options for entertainment nearby in SA but heat and traffic can be a bit of a pain. Economy is also much better here... Oh yeah, gas prices are lower too. All in all a good move but I'm not going to hate on Ohio... We loved our neighborhood (Huber Heights area), people were very friendly, and traffic moved relatively well. Good luck with whatever you choose to do...

Yes, it's all relative to your point of view. For me, someone who spent over 20 years in the military and traveled the world, San Antonio summer's are dry. However I have never lived in California. But I do know that someone coming from Ohio will find the difference in the frequency of rain events to be quite significant.

I'm not a big rain fan, either, unless it's a good nighttime thunderstorm drenching.

I honestly think I'm happiest in 80-90 degree sunny weather. I'm downright miserable from early October to late April here. Even though we only have about 3 months of hot, sunny weather here, I think I own three times more tank tops and sandals than I do sweaters and boots, if that tells you anything! lol

Our local radio DJs were talking this morning about their new boss just moving here from SA, and I immediately thought, "What the hell is wrong with you?!?" haha
