So I think I, my fiance, and his immediate family are seriously considering a move to Texas within the next year. Granted, the idea only came up the day before yesterday, but he's grabbed hold with both hands. I'm hoping for some advice on the areas you live or have lived. What the weather is like. What farming and homesteading is like. What the job economy is like. I'm looking more to the northeast, in hopes of keeping cooler and avoiding having to water all the plants every day. But the idea of tornadoes scare the bejezus out of me. Any wisdom or input is appreciated.
