Midwestern migrants are putting down roots in the sun belt
Name: Andrew Reed
Midwest Home: Kalamazoo, MI
New Home: Atlanta, GA
I left because there were no jobs in Michigan, and the Sun Belt seemed to be thriving by comparison. A secondary reason had to do with long, cold, snowy winters. Is it better here? Yes, I think so, although nowhere is good in this depressed economy.
I have two sons who were born and raised here, and I bought a small farm here almost three years ago. I have two sisters back in Michigan, as well as many friends, and I go to visit every few years, but I will not move back there.
If you or someone you know has left the Midwest add your own story.
