The weather here can best be described as "bipolar." One week we will have a lot of rain and be chilly, the next will be infernally hot and dry. If you like mixing it up you'll like central NC.

However, we go get some very nice 72 degree slightly sunny and cloudy days that are great to go out in.
Most of the businesses here are either popular chains or small businesses. I would say that there's more small businesses than large, but that is not always a bad thing. For this reason I rate my town's businesses 3/5.
