So tornadoes are pretty common in east Texas? Everything else sounds great as far as conservative and spread out. We want our kid’s to grow up around country kids. We don’t personally hunt, but my husband enjoys shooting.

I’ve been to Covington, TX and that was pretty nice from where I visited anyways too.

Yes Tornados are common in East Texas and the Dallas area. It's all part of tornado alley and often would be tornado watches in the spring and summer. Anything above Waco is basically part of Tornado Alley.

A large stretch of the central U.S., from the Texas Panhandle up to Nebraska and east into Illinois and Indiana, and south to Alabama, is subject to tornadoes. It's not something that should keep you from considering living in that part of the country. Just as Texas has a lot of snakes (including all four poisonous ones in the U.S.), people seem to elevate that into something that deters them from living here, way way way beyond what actual risk there is to someone.

Consideration of hurricanes and floods should be of much greater concern to you than tornadoes. Hurricanes and tropical storms are a very real risk to anyone living on or near the coast that should enter into a residential decision. In several areas of Texas, especially SE Texas, floods are a risk that demands you do research before buying a home (or even renting one). Tornado risk doesn't justify this level of consideration.
