Storms are not usually a problem here around this area, the only concern would be the change in temperature. Temperature can be really hot one day then freezing cold the next. This messes up with people's allergies and sinuses pretty bad.

Troy is a very friendly place. It is a small town, where everybody knows everybody. It is a great place to raise a family.
Job outlook in this place in small. Not many people come to this area come here to look for a job. There is no big businesses here. Anybody that works here just works at local small stores that pay very small amounts. Many people do not even get to work full time. People struggle to with money and employment here.
