We're doing ok. Most of the jobs that could be lost were lost before the recession, so through the whole thing we've seen more businesses open, more houses built and sold (we're one of a few housing markets that has been growing through the whole thing) and things are looking pretty good for the future. We're not booming but compared to 2005 to 2008, we're doing better over the past couple years.
The rest of the country slowing down helped, though.
