Is 350k (household income) enough in San Jose? My wife and I right now make 270k in Chicago. Everyone I know has been advising against moving to Cali at that income. Though?

So we’re working remotely until who knows... can I move across the country to San Francisco from NYC? I want to be closer to family but don’t want to spook my employer. I would keep working New York hours - but does the distance really matter anymore?

Interviewed (via Zoom) with an out of town firm about a possible lateral position in mid-March. They were extremely positive, hinted at an offer, but stated it was a timing issue with COVID (understandable). Checked in a few times, silence for months, wrote it off, but was informed recently go before the Hiring Committee early next week. Assuming it goes well, is it appropriate to ask to fly down to meet others/ learn more given the passage of time?
