I moved here almost six years ago and pretty much regretted it from the start. Just driving around is a massive exercise in aggravation. Not only is the road layout a disaster, but some of the traffic lights are simply mind boggling in their frequency and duration. The weather is brutal in the summer and usually snow-less in the winter. Last year saw several 100+ degree days with humidity comparable to Florida. The job market is near non-existent with the city being rated in the top ten for the worst job growth cities in the country by Forbes magazine and having an immense illegal immigrant population taking jobs anywhere from construction workers to chefs. The city itself has little to do, lacking both the variety of a small town and the charm of a small one. The local cable company is terrible (Charter), high speed internet costs are outrageous and a large percentage of the apartments are all owned by one company. In a nutshell, there is very little good to say about this town unless you were born here and have a sentimental attachment to it.
