I have just chatted with our friends in New York and they can attest to the damages brought by the Snow Blizzard. Our friends in New Jersey and New York who are working as High School teachers planned to transfer work and residency in North Carolina particularly in Wilmington. The Filipino community in North Carolina have invited them to transfer work and residency in NC. Aside from California, most of Filipinos crowded in the city since they have a humid subtropical climate. Finding a place is not a problem since there are lots of Wilmington NC apartments for rents. Cozy apartments which are at the heart of the city. My friends decided to transfer on June ( summer break) . What made them decide is that a school already accepted their application . Another big factor is that living in Wilmington is not as fast-paced as in New York and New Jersey. Good luck friends !
