I am traveling around the country and tonight I am spending the night in Odessa, Texas. As I sat out by the pool this afternoon I scanned the local paper. There is an article talking about how Forbes named Midland and Odessa, Texas as the best two small cities for jobs right now. This is because of the oil and petroleum industry. If you are looking for a job and you do not want to go where the weather is cold like ,in North or South Dakota, consider Midland or Odessa, Texas where the weather is hot.
