We are just started to get ready. It is still in the planning stage, but we are looking at three different places where we might move. All of them are fairly close to my new job and the school which Jane is going to teach. We have even started to think about which power companies we can pick down there. According to this website the same power companies are available at all three of these addresses, so it is the same choice no matter which one of the houses we pick. Of course I never really know which power company to select and I usually try to look for the things that are said about them by other consumers. It is not like you are going to find any power company which has a fully positive reputation, but you want to see that they respond to the customer. In particular you are going to be down on the Gulf Coast and you have to think about hurricanes.
It has been a long time since I lived really close to the Gulf of Mexico. You obviously have to think about hurricanes. So we are going to make sure that we get a place which is a reasonable distance from the coast and up above the level of the sea. You do not want to be sitting there unprepared when a really big storm comes up. I was in one really big hurricane when I was about 12 years old and we lost our power for a couple of weeks. You really get to understand how much you like to have electric power after you do without it for a few days in the Texas heat. It is really a big deal to go without having air condition in the Corpus Cristi area.
