I've had a few friends move to the Northern VA area the last few years, and they've all loved it. They've also gotten there and discovered that they weren't the only ones who were relocating or even relocating last minute so I wouldn't be surprised if you find some real-life support too. I'm going through this right now as well - though not that far - so you're definitely not alone! It's stressful, but I'm sure it'll be worth it for all of us in the end. I'd rather do this than not teach full-time for another year.
