I live in Columbus, OH, and for the last few years, I've noticed an influx of Texas license plates all over my city. Sometimes I will see several in a week. Just on my hour lunchbreak today, driving 5 miles to the restaurant and 5 miles back, I saw TWO Texas cars.

Why in the world are so many Texans moving to Ohio? You're going the WRONG WAY!!!!

Cuz it's hot here?

I don't know. That'd be my reason if I were to head North!

Maybe it's to get away from all of the people who are moving here.

I personally know three families that PCSed to Wright-Patt this year from LAFB. Maybe it's a military thing?

Wright Patt is about an hour and a half from me.

We do have a large JPMorgan Chase building nearby, is that a big company in Texas?

I could think of many other places I'd go to get away from the heat other than Columbus, Ohio! lol

look at the map

shale25map - Business - Ohio

and while the hot spots are not right over Columbus driving 20-40+ miles to get to the heavy production zones is nothing in Texas and in the oil business in general especially if that drive gets you to a major city with plenty of rooms and plenty of industry to build things and work or parts and equipment

Water? The great lakes are there. Cooler weather might be another draw. I sometimes miss my home in NY at this time of year.

Default Columbus for Oil,

TexasVines might be right , Texas oil business know-how might be in demand in Yankeeland, Ohio.
They do have the know how on machinery fabrication up there in Ohio.
And it Makes a lot more sense than a bunch of Wright-Patman transfers.
Wright-Patman is in Dayton not close to Columbus.

Maybe you should flag them down and ask. But I'd be careful. We all carry guns.
