Is moving to Houston without a job lined up a terrible idea given the state of the economy?

I've fallen in love with Houston and I'm planning to move there in January. With the state of the economy, I'm wonder how easily I'll be able to find employment. I've got 6+ years in the medical billing/paperwork/getting stuff done fast and smooth. I've got excellent recommendations and references, and been told my resume is impressive, but I have no idea if that's enough. I want to be making at least $16 an hour. Hopefully more.
I know they've got a giant medical center there, but I didn't know what it's like to find a job there. I was planning on getting a temp job as soon as I move and am going to start calling temp agencies a week before I move. Is it a bad idea to do this now? What would be the chances of me finding a good job?
