    We have 5 seasons, the fifth being "mud season" when the snow melts and the dirt roads are muddy, slippery and large pot holes occur. The winter is cold and very long, the last 2 winters in particular. A lot of time is spent indoors, bored. The summers are short but wonderful. We get about 3-5 days with schools closed in the winter due to the snow. Floods occur in some areas when there are big snow melts and rain. Layering clothes with good winter coat are essential in the winter.

    Most of the houses are well kept and maintained. There is a big variety of home types from some being over 200 years old to newly build homes. A few empty homes, rented homes and privately owned homes. A few have businesses associated with them. Most have a 10 acre lots minimum. Properties tax rate are some of the highest in the states. Utility costs are probably in the average range.
    Within a 5 mile radius we have plenty of businesses which cover a wide range of businesses. We have multiple types of restaurants - fast food, drive through, Chinese, Mexican, Italian...We have two major grocery stores, plenty of gas stations and a big chain home supply store. There is an outlet center with a variety of stores as well and a movie theater.
