Jeez! I hope your kitchen cabinets fall off 'the wall!
Seriously, I am a Native Texan (caps intentional) and I have to tell you l
like what I have seen of Philly and many of the people there and near there.
I do find most of the service folks like waiters, waitresses, clerks, etc. to
be a bit more abrupt...Whadda ya want!? being the usual response. But the
spring and fall are nice. Winter is rather wet, dreary and cold. The sun
sets around 2:30 in the afternoon, and if it is acutally seen from mid
October to sometime in June, the UFO sitings reports increase dramatically.
Now Austin...Once a very pretty little city in one of the prettiest parts of
Texas. Now populated with liberal genXers. Service staff in resturants and
such will often be graduated attorneys who are "doing this so I can stay in
Austin". Since you have lived in CA and may not mind the commute, there are
still a number of small towns near Austin that retain some of the Texas
Drivers passing you on small rural roads in both states will wave, but in
Texas they will wave all five fingers.
Weather in Austin is temperate from October to June with July through
September hot and muggy. Actually only in the 90s with 90% humidity, but
that's at night.
Traffic is hell in both places.
There is no better tonic for the heart than making a child smile.
