Agreed.

I know of 2 co-workers who gave up on California and moved to the Phoenix Metro 2 years ago.

Another was a family who left Kansas City, and another family who just moved there from Jacksonville.

The ones from California really like it.

The issue in Phoenix's growth will always be tied to water however.  It's amazing how far they have come, but any long term water issues will be their undoing.

My ancestors used to own a ton a ranch land north of Phoenix in Oak Creek Canyon and Clemenceau AZ. We had family reunions there when I was a kid, its beautiful country.

^^^California has a very unfriendly high tax business climate filled with tons of red tape and regulations. Many people and businesses have left Cali, heading to places like AZ, TX, OK, and FL. It seems like most of Cali's net population gain are undocumented people.

Another city on the rise is Austin, Texas.
