Isn't that desire similar to the price, quality, service triangle? You can usually only pick any two of the three.

Having issues with one or more of those three in the Bay area?

Cost of living, yes, that's a big strike there, I know. I'd figure the education and weather would be pretty decent.

So, you talking about moving the familia? I'm thinking your wish list is a toughie, since (1) and (2) together in a place are gonna make it hard to find (3) - as in your current situation.

Northern Virginia is not bad - Fairfax's Thomas Jefferson magnet school often is at the top of the Newsweek public school rankings.

Education is crap if you don't live in an expensive area. School funding is tied to property tax.

What do you define as "decent weather"? I'd take the occasional snowfall over earthquakes, hurricanes or tsunamis any day. I think you pretty much eliminated the west coast of North America when you said "low cost of living".

I'm not good in the snow. Heat is better than snow, basically. Limited snow might be fine.

I'm also used to earthquakes.

Oklahoma has really cheap housing prices compared to many places and mild weather. Ranks low in education but I felt adequately educated growing up in oklahoma schools and I wouldn't complain. The large school districts within the wealthier parts of the state are actually pretty good IMO.

Not on the coast, but we have lots of lakes.

I really can't think of a lot of good about Misery, I mean Missouri. Too hot and humid in the summer, but not as bad as Texas. To cold in the winter, but not as bad as Montana or Canada. Southern MO might be a good place to fish or hunt, but it's not my thing.

Ken, if you move, you have to make sure your new job allows for your current level of Axiom activity, or Peter will overtake you in the post count.
