The seasons aren't very extreme here. Last winter was very cold and a large amount of ice. My north face jackets and UGG boots were necessities! The spring is usually pretty rainy, and summers can get really hot. I'm usually in my north face jackets or in a summer dress. Not usually too much in between.

This area has an overall positive atmosphere. It does get kind of boring here because there is not much to do around here but it is a work in progress. The education system here is changing dramatically for the better. Boyertown has a very good reputation education wise, and the community is very positive and supportive.
There has been many reports of drug usage around here, but due to many deaths in this town, families are coming together to make a difference and it seems to be working. Cops are very reliable and are seen pretty much everywhere. For sure, it is the safest town in comparison to the ones nearby.
