Texas is a very large state with more than one climate and geography—very dry in the West and humid in the eastern part from Tyler down to Houston. This week, I’ll cover east Texas as a Strategic Relocation destination. But first we’ll cover some of the pros and cons of living in Texas as a state.
Climate: Texas has a wide range of climate because of its size. Since it is located in the south central part of the continent, it experiences the effects of two dangerous air masses, Canadian cold air and the Gulf of Mexico’s warm, moist air, which often collide over Texas causing huge thunderstorms and tornados. Eastern Texas has a Gulf Coastal climate with more rain than west Texas, lending to its pine forests, deep soil, and good growing conditions. Texas gets a lot of sun so solar potential is good in the East and excellent in the drier West.
Population density is well below average in rural Texas (about 35 ppl/sq. mile), and above average within 50 miles of all the major cities. Overall, the cost of living in Texas is the 6th lowest in nation, partly owing to its lack of an income tax.
