    The weather in this area is pretty great. In the summer, it's hot, but it's southern Georgia, so that's obvious. It starts cooling down, and then after fall, it becomes quite chilly in the winter, which is wonderful. Time goes by and it heats up in the spring, bringing us back into the Georgia heat.

    There is little to no crime and safety protection. Quite frankly, the police in this area are completely terrible. Luckily, we don't have violent murders, or we would all be out of luck.

    The local businesses in my town are subjective. If the owners of the business know and like you, the service will be great. However, if they do not like you, you can be sure your service will not be all too great.
