My fiancée and I are considering moving to Fargo, ND sometime next year, and we had a few questions.
I'm hoping someone on here can help us out.
I think the most important issue is employment. What is the job market like?
We both currently work in retail (management). I see lots of job openings on the internet, but that doesn't always give an accurate impression of the real life market.
What's the political landscape like? Gadsden flags or Obama stickers?
Are there any common natural disasters? I've read there's a history of the river flooding, as well as tornados.
How harsh are the winters?
Do you need engine heater? Are hardtops a necessity?
And, lastly, crime?
Where I am now, I'll put the top down and pull the doors off, leave it parked at the mall for a few hours, and all my stuff is still there when I come back.
Can you do that around Fargo, or will I need a hardtop and lock-nuts on the doors?
If anyone can offer some input, we'd really appreciate it.
