Glasgow is a suburb of Newark, which is a place for families and seniors. It is a community which many activities revolve around pet-friendly Glasgow Park. There are three shopping centers and a Home Depot and lots of medical buildings. There is variety in restaurants, but there is little night life. There are lots of churches, but the largest is Saint Margaret of Scotland R.C.. The northernmost loblolly pine, cottonmouths, and ABC liquor stores are all found in Glasgow.

In this area, you can get your severe winter storms during the winter and occasional flooding. But overall, not too much natural disasters happen. The weather has its normal flow, with the winter having snowfall, the early spring having rainfalls, and the summer having heat rises. Only this one time do I remember this Category-2 hurricane that happened back in 2001, which resulted in everything closing down and making families have to stay inside their homes until it was over. But that was truly rare.
I really like the stores that are around me. Like for example, the Christiana Mall contains an Apple Store, Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, and many other stores that the younger generation would be interested in. Also there are convenient stores like Target and Macy's that grabs the eye of parents and older people. I like how the mall is interesting along with the amount of food restaurants that are around the mall and near my neighborhood. It makes it easy to get some good quality food along with a good variety.
