There are very few natural disasters in this area. However, drought is very common and has occasionally gotten to critical levels. Severe thunderstorms and hurricanes happen often, and can be problematic if they are powerful enough to down trees. There have supposedly been tornadoes, and flooding is possible but only in very few areas. At most once per year there is a snowstorm that shuts down the city for a day, but is not usually dangerous unless the power is out for a long time. My family keeps an "emergency box" filled with non-perishable food, ponchos, candles, and a propane stove, but we have only ever had to use it once or twice in my lifetime. Still, it's a good idea to have one. At most one natural incident occurs per season: that is, one major thunderstorm in spring, one serious drought in summer, one hurricane in fall, one snowstorm in winter.

North Durham is not a great location for local business. There's a lot of gang violence and crime in Durham in general, and the northern part is particularly hit by violence in a lot of areas. Closer to central Durham, there are a lot of local specialty businesses, such as Guglupf and Locopops, that are very successful. But the farther north you go the fewer quality local stores there are. In fact, a recently opened Starbucks a few minutes from where I live is probably one of the most popular places to go. I believe that local businesses struggle with connecting with the community because there is a considerable amount of racial aggression, which makes it difficult for a business to survive. I would prefer if there were more upscale places close to where I lived, so I wouldn't have to go all the way downtown for a night out.
Durham is best known for its arts: music, from popular bands to independent music to back-of-the-bar guitarists; performance arts, at the Durham Performing Arts Center (rated #2 in the country, after Broadway) and the Carolina Performing Arts; fine arts, celebrated at the annual Durham Arts Festival and Centerfest. There are not many natural parks near by or outdoorsy attractions, aside from hiking, biking, and canoeing.
