    One wonder why it has to be this way every year. Bad forest management? Deliberately set to get tax dollars?

    The word is out that 90% are set either by arsonists or stupid campers. Beyond that???

    From your hints and commentary I'd recommend Cowtown - Ft Worth. Alternatively, Corpus Christi or Galveston. There are more job openings than folks qualified to fill them in all those places. Don't even think about Dallas, Austin or Houston.

    If you want in the heart of red Texas, come to Montgomery county. The Woodlands is an upscale place with a little higher cost of living but well below CA. Growing community which hs still not decided to become a city but is rather a 'township', WTH that is. The whole county is about as conservative as a mixed community can be.

    The greater part of the input/outgo of folks has settled down now that schools are prepping to open again. Out here in my neighborhood the average price is $135 sqft with a half acre of property.

    Thanks for this. I am have lived many years with the earthquakes, fires, and coastal flooding. (Have been through all at one point or another.) But nothing has been worse than Jerry Brown. If Gavin Newsom wins, you can put a fork in California.

    You should get out now before California starts preventing people who pay taxes from leaving the state.

    Additional points: Corpus and Galveston are both subject to flooding in tropical storms as they are barely above sea level but you can live inland a few miles and raise your elevation considerable. Check out Harvey’s flood maps before deciding on a locale near the coast. I’m 60 miles from the beaches and high and dry while still living on a river bank.

    Cowtown has much less chance of major flooding, its earthquakes are few and minor (4.0 or less) and while we do have the largest oak forest in the world we don’t have that much forest outside East Texas. Prairie fires are dangerous but mostly limited to west Texas and are few and far between.

    Feel free to pm me with any questions you may have.
