    Moving to Tennessee

    Moving to from Southern California to Tennessee in the next 8-12 months. Likely to the Nashville area. How's the work climate out there? I've been in the commercial/industrial side of the trade for 15+ years, and recommendations on who to try and work for?

    Yup...

    I work in Nashville doing cooking equipment repair, so generally in an air-conditioned space. My SHOP, however, is not.
    Yesterday was oppressive since the humidity was so high. Several weeks ago was in the upper nineties with heat index of 110-115. Daily rain/thunderstorms "might" cool things down for a minute.

    As for the "business" climate, it was booming before the pandemic. Still ALLOT of construction going on, though. Housing AND commercial. Nashville & vicinity has been in a population boom for over a decade now and showing no signs of slowing down. Real estate prices have gone through the roof because of that. Large corporations moving in, etc.

    With it's thriving economy, Nashville is a great place to live and work, but you'll likely be wanting to establish residence in a neighboring city and county (such as I do) for cheaper rent or mortgage. I suggest someplace west or north (IMHO).
