I love the fact that I live in the country. I'm close enough to get what I need from town, but far enough away to enjoy solitude. I love the tight knit community because when you need friends who are close, like family, they're there.

There are rarely any issues in this area. When there are, the police are kind and courteous.
The only potential natural disaster in my area is tornadoes which has never occured in my life time.

We see great fluxuation in temperature throughout the four seasons; from snow, to spring rain, summer heat, and autumn.
