When people think Wisconsin, they think of the snow in the winter, and if someone is looking at Oshkosh to live, they should be aware that winters are very harsh. The four seasons are in full effect here. Because I grew up with the seasons, I have learned to enjoy them and you only hear people complain about the winter. Living on a hill, I do not have a problem with flooding, but I know many people in this area do. Weather is not too difficult to deal with, the occasional severe thunderstorm can do damage, but we do not have many tornados and no earthquakes.
Algoma is a very small, connected town. It's inhabitants are very inveted in sports, as well as the school community. It is not very diverse.
With so much construction as of recent, driving can be very difficult for Oshkosh residents. The many one-way streets downtown can also be very confusing even for those who have lived in Oshkosh for awhile. I think that this city is not to difficult to drive in unless someone is unaware of conditions or not used to driving here, then it can be very difficult. I know many people who get confused driving here or need a GPS for changing road construction.
