Snyder Township Reviews

There are truly only about 3 months out of the year that it is comfortable to wear shorts and tank tops. The majority of the time the weather is either in the 60s or so in the fall and spring with enough of a breeze to make it chilly. The winters can sometimes seem to come and go and other times they come early and overstay there welcome. Jeans, sweatshirts, t-shirts and capris are a must as well as different jackets depending upon how cold it is outside, to have in anyones wardrobe. The most occuring natural disasters is flooding and most people expect it and keep things on higher ground or well secured so they don't get swept away as the water rises, most basements are prepared with sump pumps and things are elevated as it is expected, all other weather isn't really a big deal as everyone is use to it as it is western Pennsylvannia after all, to us it is just another day.

I do not regret living here at all. It is a small town feel where most people know each other to walk down the street and say hello to one another instead of just passing by. It's much friendlier than a bigger city would be and a much better place to raise a family. Class sizes are much smaller and children are able to know everyone in their graduating class instead of having such huge numbers that they have no idea. I hope the future for this area is for it to continue to bloom and prosper, providing better education for children and continue to have that small town down to earth feel.
There are not really many attractions in this area unless you are an outdoorsman, hunter, or fisher.
