    Outdoors at South Hadley Town: South Hadley is a very nice town. It has a lot of open space, and plenty of ares to relax. When it comes to wildlife watching and hiking, it doesn't have a whole lot itself (it is a town after all). Though nearby is Mt. Tom, which is great for both.

    Crime & Safety at South Hadley Town: I don't remember the last time there's actually been a big crime in the area. There's a police man who lives on my street, but he doesn't seem to do much. Though there isn't that much for him to do, except for catch the occasional speeder.

    Public Services at South Hadley Town: I don't know much about our governor or representatives, and I don't pay taxes, I just turned 18. Though I wish they'd fix the roads, they're awful. I fear that my mom will blow a tire or bend a rim on one someday.

    Weather at South Hadley Town: I don't mind the weather. As a lover of colder climates, the temp here doesn't really bother me. Though recently the summers have been getting hotter and the winters more snowy. We've also had more freak earthquakes (nothing life threatening, just a few shakes here and there) and the tornado a year or two ago. Other than that, our worst problem is probably the snow.
