I was over on the other thread reading about the forecasted path of Ernesto and that got me thinking about where I could move to avoid natural disasters and be comfortable year round. Here's my current thought: New England/Northern East Coast: Too cold for my tastes Southern East Coast: Hurricanes Texas and Southwest: Too hot, Africanized Honey Bees, did I mention too hot? Pacific Coast: Earthquakes Northern Border/Great Lakes: Too cold in the winter Northern Midwest: tornados I've actually settled on Northern Arkasas as a good place to settle down. Perhaps the NW part of Oklahoma. From what I can tell, there are fewer tornadoes than other parts of the midwest, there's not many earthquakes, natural environment, and temperate climate neither too hot or cold. What do you all think? Try to take out all the personal prejudice that you might have for where you live now or where you grew up. For example, I live in Chicago but said that it's too cold here, which I believe and would love to get away from.
