How does Iowa sound?

Yes, you're reading right... Charles recieved an e-mail last night from the FAA informing him he has been put on Iowa's list as well. So, he got the list of five cities and just like Michigan, we are putting them in order of our least to greatest places we are interested in living. So here's our rank thus far:
1. Des Moines
2. Cedar Rapids
3. Waterloo
4. Sioux Falls
5. South Sioux City
If anyone has any suggestions on these cities, PLEASE do share! :-) We have done some research online but not a whole lot has been found, except of course from the Iowa Cacuses... haha! We're excited to see where we will actually end up! We have since learned that he could have a numerous amount of "tentative states" offer him positions and the next step will simply be who invites him for an interview and the first city to offer him the position is where we will go!

I came across your blog from Nicki's blog...

My husband and I went to Des Moines just a few months ago and LOVED it! It's a city we'd like to live in..

Here is what I can tell you. Des Moines; of the cities that you have, the biggest and central in the state. I am about and hour from there, thus the one that I visit most often. Cedar Rapids, city of 5 smells... that is what the outsiders call it. There is a number of businesses that give off an odor. But it is about 30 minutes from the states biggest mall (Coralridge mall in Coralville/Iowa City). Waterloo, another great place, I have not been there in years, but I have sis that recently moved there. And sorry but have never been to Sioux Falls or Sioux City much more than to pass through. Sorry that I did not know sooner or I could have been more help.
