    It's hit and miss. They're good at taking care of problems relating to storms, etc., but getting them to fix potholes is like pulling teeth. The weather here is fine for the most part, although we have been getting some weird weather in the past few years. Our recent winter was horrifying and we haven't really had a Spring. It went from freezing to boiling overnight. The changing seasons are nice, especially when Fall rolls . The landscape is absolutely gorgeous then! Summer activities involve swimming, sports and travel. Winter involves sledding, skiing and snow tubing.

    There is a sizable variety of restaurants and lounges in the surrounding area. There is everything from burgers joints to family-style eateries to higher-priced restaurants and places with exotic foods. Even in my very small town, there are some places to eat. Within about a 15-mile radius, you won't go hungry here!

    Major airports around here require at least a 40 minute drive. There are some Amtraks but they're not terribly convenient. There are absolutely no local bus services to just get people around town but there are taxis and other transportation services available. Major highways are very close and accessible and, except for certain times of day, aren't difficult to navigate, especially with a GPS. Locally, our sidewalks are pretty well maintained and easily accessible in most places. Stores and local government offices are reasonably accessible as is the local library so a lot of folks walk or ride bicycles instead of driving.
