    There is a lot of outdoor space within driving distance. You can choose a lake or river or you can go to one of the state parks. They are all very well maintained and it is always an enjoyable time to spend. I live in the country so if I want to take a walk in the woods they are right behind my house but everything is owned so you have to have permission from the property owner. That is the only down side, there is no where near by that is not owned by someone.
    Winter can be bitter cold with lots of snow and possible blizzards.

    Summer brings the possibility of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes.

    Always on the watch for too much rain which brings flooding in the area.

    Keep a jacket in the car at all times because the weather can change in an instant.
    Most people around here are concerned about their health. We have some of the top hospitals in the country near by. As far as drug or alcohol abuse, that is more prevalent in the nearby city. There is a small problem but it is not very visual.
