    Four seasons happen in a matter of hours around here. The weatherman is never accurate. The weather is unpredictable and it gets to -20 in the winter, but then it gets to 105 in the summer. Spring and fall might last about 3 weeks each, so enjoy those nice temperatures while they last!

    A lot of people in this area of southeast Ohio are very close-minded. That was okay for me growing up, but now that I've seen the world through college, it's not okay with me anymore. It's a great place to raise children, but those children will out of here as soon as they can. It's a boring place for young adults.

    Chain restaurants or local businesses. Either way, it's very affordable but generally a small variety
