I agree with everything, in general. Watch out for the noise.

Let's see...I was born in Warren but spent most my formative years in the center of suburban life, Canton. I've also lived out near Lansing, in Ypsilanti, Farmington Hills and worked for about four years at an office in Southfield...

My ladyfriend and I moved out here in August because she got a music scholarship to attend UNM for her Masters. We kind of took at look at the economic situation and the overall attitude of the area and decided to “jump ship” out of Michigan. The localized depression wasn't really that bad for us (we we're both employed and all) but we really felt like our options were limited if we stayed in the area. It sucks moving away from friends and family (my entire family is still in Michigan) but we figured, we're still young(ish), The Duke City is growing and the opportunities here are much more broad.

And honestly, I'm glad we took the leap. I found a new gig within two months of moving down here and you're dead on about the weather, population and attitude. It's much more relaxed here and less East Coast where everything is rush, rush, rush. What they consider "rushhour" here is laughable considering the web of freeways we're use to, yet the folks here do not know who to drive (and we though Ohio drivers were the worst!) and the weather is a remarkable improvement. Have you experienced a full New Mexican summer yet? Having arrived in August, we got the tail end of it but I'm curious how hot May and June get. Any ideas?

So, what was the catalyst for you to move out here?

"Recovering Detroiter"....that's funny. I guess I could be considered one of those too...
