Houston has just finally reached Conroe TX. Lots of jobs have moved to the Woodlands on the north side of Houston. And the builders have gone crazy!

     The Washington Free Beacon says,

     "Out of 15 cities with the largest numeric increase in population, eight were located in the South. They include San Antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, Charlotte, Jacksonville, and Miami.

     "The Census Bureau study underscores what we’ve known for years; Millennials, just like everyone else, flock to where the career opportunities are, and areas with vibrant and diverse free market economies are proven to have good wages and job opportunities," said David Barnes, director of policy engagement Generation Opportunity.   "Because of that, they prefer areas with fewer government-created barriers to opportunity, such as high tax rates and costly regulations."

     "Not surprisingly, a common thread among the states that are growing the quickest is that they’ve largely embraced pro-growth policies that enable new markets to develop, allowing young people to relocate," he said.  "Policymakers in other states would be wise to follow the lead by enacting similar legislation."

My city is an hour and fifteen minutes from #10. What Realtor doesn't mention is the terrible traffic that comes into Nashville from #10. It's a parking lot every day.

No, I didn't. I don't follow news like that except as it related to the Charlotte metro area where people having been moving in droves the entire 19 years I've lived here. (I was one of them!)
