The atmosphere of the area I live in is great. I see people outside running, walking their dogs, and pushing baby strollers every day in the spring and summer. I remember having emergency vehicles outside our home a few years ago, and receiving dozens of calls from our neighbors to make sure that our family was okay. The people that live in my area are caring and loving. I would live here again if I had to. However, I do see myself living somewhere near a beach as I am from Hawaii and have an urge for the water. Compared to other parts of the country I live in a very clean, safe, and warm place. I see a bright future for this area due to roads being repaved, holes filled, and new, awesome people continuing to move in and call it their home too.

The safety in this area is impeccable. Police officers are on the roads all the time making sure people are obeying the speed limits and traffic laws. If there is an emergency they can get to the scene in a timely manner because stations are strategically placed to reach multiple neighborhoods and communities quickly. Crime is really not a big issue where I live but the few incidents that we have had, they were taken seriously.
Starting off with Fall, the weather is great. Its never too cool or hot and it always seems to be cool enough for a thin jacket. As far as winter its one of my least favorite because of the cold and snow that this area gets every year. Next, spring seems to be a mixture of fall and winter because one day we might get snow in March and the next day it may feel as if the month is September instead of March. This area is also well known for thunderstorms to occur biweekly and also known to have rain showers that last for at least three days straight. Lastly is Summer, it gets very hot everyday of the week and sometimes its so hot that you have to stay in the house. For Fall my wardrobe consist of a light jacket, capris, short sleeve shirts and pants. Winter, my wardrobe consist of a coat, heavy jacket, thermals, boots, pants, hats and gloves. Spring; rain jacket, pants, sometimes coats, hats and gloves. Lastly Summer; shorts, sandals, short sleeve shirts, and tank tops.
