iron county isn't as good as people cut it out to be. although there are several religions, but 75% are mormon, 5% are another religion, and 20% dont have a religion. many people here are judgemental, prideful, and full of themselves. it's so dry here it's impossible to breathe and fires happen so often its just a normal part of life. be careful who you let into your friend circle or trust. people here you know and trust well can turn on you with no reason and hurt you in crimeful ways. they often do things behind your back. this isn't a good place to live if you are LGBTQ+ or have a mental illness, people here have no respect for you. plus, most of the people here are straight, white, racist, american, mormon, and are from here. it's also expensive here. most homes sell for 400,000+ and condos, old houses, and rare people selling for less than 300,000 bring down the average price. dont move here, no matter what reason or excuse you have. it's not worth it and it scars you for life.
