Someone who worked with my husband recently quit to move somewhere else, which has gotten me into the “what if” mode. What if we could up and leave? Where would we go? Neither one of us have been too far from home, so we’re limited with our knowledge of what’s really out there. However, you might have some information that could help us make the decision to stay or go.
What’s the criteria for my search? Well, there needs to be engineering jobs there because that’s what my hubby does for a living. We’d want to avoid any major weather areas with tornados, hurricanes, and earthquakes. We’d prefer to get out of the extreme cold, but don’t want to get into intense heat either. A place with a lot of lakes would be nice since we love the water, but getting into a bigger city is more important. Right now, we live in a very small town. A population of 50,000 near a big city or a larger city of 100,000 or more would be ideal.
Here are a couple of places I thought might be nice, but maybe you know more than me… Pennsylvania? Colorado? Do you know of any cities in these areas that fit my criteria? Do you have any other places elsewhere to suggest?
Most likely we won’t be moving anywhere since my husband suffers from the fear factor. Since he’s the breadwinner in the family at the moment (I’m a stay-at-home mom), a lot of stress is put on him to make sure he can provide for us. I understand that. But it would be sooooooo nice to move out of this teeny, tiny town. (I come from a city of 300,000 people, so a town of 3,000 is like a neighborhood to me, not a city.) Hey, a person can dream, right? So, give me a place to dream about.
