I take the time to read all the threads that everyone rights (the good and bad) about the greater Tampa Bay area. I am so grateful that everyone is so helpful to the people that wish to relocate to the area. It must be crazy on the amount of people that look to migrate and sometimes the threads sound like "oh no, here's another one trying to move down here!".

I know the grass is always greener on the other side, and for some people who give up their great jobs and stabilty in attempts to move for the "sun and weather" should think twice about their decision. For those who live in states that are hit just as hard as FL (ummmm Ohio for example), there is nothing keeping us here and we're not afraid of taking a chance in life, with or without kids.

I have a decent job (It's not a career) and I want to be in a region that has the weather and ammenities that my family likes. I am looking to change industries and basically a pay cut would come with that. Heck, I have people left in right getting laid off and taking pay cuts.

FL is not perfect and anyone moving there thinking that their life will automatically turn perfect is in for a rude awakening. I just want everyone to know that it's bad in other areas too!

Wanna switch? If you don't like the heat and atmosphere that you have, I've got snow, dark skies for days on end for several months out the year, unemployment and bad crime for you here.

Any takers?
