Lucky you don't have to worry about ice… It doesn't bother me too much anymore, but when I first started driving in the winter, it got to be a little terrifying. Especially the time when I stepped out of my truck and the highway was more slippery than any skating rink I've ever been on :\ Needless to say, I ran my chains on the highway, all the way to town. lol.

Awesome. Such a beautiful transformation y'all have done to fix up the houses. Time for y'all to be on HGTV, flip the house or one of those shows. Houses look good. I especially like that truck parked in the yard. Mmm...Look sexy.

I'm a Production Coordinator / Supervisor for an international oil and gas company's machining center. We are one of the largest machining centers in the state of Louisiana. I produce thousands of different parts in all shapes and sizes that have teeth used to bite down in order to handle casing/pipe on rigs all around the world.

I don't think that is high at all. That is actually good. Renting houses here in Charleston is kinda high. Just before we moved to GA, our house sold faster than what we thought, so we rented a house for a year and it was $1,200 for 1628 sq ft with 2 car garage.

That is a house note here in Charleston. But in Atlanta, yeah in some sections, it is like that too.

@mbullock
Housing cost is ridiculous. That is insane. Makes you wonder why the housing went bust because people can't afford it anymore.

On another note, I also hate the high rental prices where I live. 1 bed apartments with no garage usually go between 1k-1.2k/mo if they have running water. Even a 16x20 cabin with loft and no running water will go for 750/mo.

Unfortunately, a mortgage is out of reach for most, as our median home price is about $236k. A conventional 30 year fixed at today's rates make that a $1500-1600/mo payment (PITI). Once you add utilities (about $1k/mo) it is an unattainable goal for many.
@cwrose
Where do you live? That is expensive. $236k ain't bad for a nice house. Around here, $236k will get houses over 3,000 sq ft. depending on what side of town you are on.

Fairbanks, Alaska. The wife and I were looking at house this past summer; a 1450 squarefoot 3 bed, 2bath, 2 car garage on an 8,000 squarefoot lot. The house sold for $250,000. Taxes were about 4k/year and fuel useage to heat it was about 1,100 gal/yr (@ $3.91/gal).

A lot of people have been supplementing their heat with wood in a woodstove. Even those prices have gone to about 250-350 per cord. Depends on the species and moisture content.

I remember my trip to AK a few years ago, and I know what you mean... everything demands a premium... You guys still pay no state tax though right?

Correct. No state tax (income/sales). Your trip for work or pleasure? What part of the state did you get to visit?

Don't have any photos, but having to deal with -30F at work today. To think, this time last week it was 40F. Chinook winds are on the way, though.
