    Default Thinking of moving to Red Oak, Texas

    Dear All:
    I am considering moving to Red Oak, Texas in the next three months or so. Have any of you FV'ers lived there? What is it like? Where are the closest cheapest grocery stores, dry cleaners, theatres, etc? What about the ethnic markets + organic markets? What about the closest/best thrift stores?
    Thanks in advance for your responses!!

    Bank of America is THE godfather of Hell with Wells Fargo running neck and neck. When the world ends the only things that will be left are cockroaches, Walmart, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. Not necessarily in that order. The order remains to be seen.

    I used to live in the Dallas area, and while I can't give you specifics I can tell you that Red Oak is relatively rural. I wouldn't expect too many organic markets or ethnic stores (other than hispanic ones). The good news is that Dallas is just a short drive up the freeway...

    You're also in tornado country. I remember a really bad one that went through just north in DeSoto back in the 90's and a friend of mine lost his house. Whole neighborhoods were flattened. So it's a good idea to have a shelter or safe room in the house.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    Looks like Red Oak was one of the areas that got hit by todays tornadoes. Looks like a very nasty afternoon in store for folks in the DFW area.
