How affordable is the housing in America’s best small towns? Three things came together and caused me to ask that question:
• I was on vacation in Phoenix last week — to recover from Minnesota’s bleak winter and to escape its wintry spring. This was the second time I’ve been to Phoenix, and I love it. Sunny, highs in the 80s. I could definitely live there, at least in the winter.
• As I look out the window from my home in Owatonna, Minnesota, it’s snowing.
