They Would Be Coming Around the Mountain If We Had a Mountain


We live in Fort Bend County which continues to grow its population unabated. We're always asking ourselves: "Where are these people coming from?"

Now, thanks to an interactive map at Forbes.com, we have the answer! At least the answer for the year 2008. The black lines indicate movement into the county and the red lines show movement away from the county. Looks like a whole lotta Yankees, Mid-Westerners and Californians are moving to southeast Texas.

Hat tip to Mike Kruse at the Kruse Kronicle for the link. If you'd like to see the information for your county, go here: Where Americans Are Moving.

So he either couldn't take the heat down here, or he missed the blizzards up there?
