We mostly get all four seasons. The past few years in this area we haven't been getting a lot of snow and in turn have had dry summers but other than that, the weather is great!

This area has many stores that you need, however the safety surrounding the area is questionable. For the stores themselves, they are useful and, most of the time, clean.
There has been questionable actions by people in the state government that has made me weary. As for police/fire station, they have been doing great in the area for awhile.
