Considering moving to the Richland / Kennewick / Pasco Washington area from SoCal. Do you live there now, have you lived there before, do you have advice? I would like suggestions about how to learn about the area without actually driving up there, although we probably will drive there in the next few months.

I would like to live in a more rural / suburban area, but am worried about how many jobs are there. I am in management / admin assist and my husband is in IT. We have no kids but plan to start a family in the next 2 or 3 years. I have looked at real estate in the tricities and am excited by the options; we also like fixer uppers. I know jobs are hard to find anywhere, but I consider us to be employable people. Besides the money worries, I would love to hear from anyone who has anything to tell me about the area. Please don’t tell me not to move there because “its boring”; (in terms of rural, no nightclubs, no ‘culture’) I probably really enjoy what you consider boring. I am looking for simple things, a house, with a yard, a good grocery store, decent schools, quiet. We've 'picked up and moved' before. Why did I pick this area? I don’t know. Its stuck in my head. Now I have to convince my husband.
