This place is horrible

Lived here way to long. Over 35 years. Ready to move. The humidity is horrible (over 50%) and we are called the Mistake On The Lake and Dreary Erie for a reason. The crime is horrible on the lower East side and the lower West side is getting worse. Sure the cost of living might be appealing but there are NO jobs here and it is a customer service based industry which does not pay a livable wage. Presque Isle usually has a half a dozen beaches closed normally due to e coli and other gross stuff in it. The sun rarely shines here. The winters are brutal and a temperature difference of 30-40 in a 24 hour period is normal. We are always on the top 5 list for the most snow accumulation. We rarely have 4 seasons anymore. It is cold cold COLD. The summer is more like a spring with a never ending cold winter. Also the poverty is horrible and we are listed as one of the top states in the US for welfare recipients. LOTS of bars and drunks. Red Necks in Fairview, Girard, Lake City, Edinboro, Albion and I could go on and on. The place just has BAD energy now and has been getting worse for years. The fact that the weather is listed as a D+ and not an F while Sedona, AZ is listed as an F is pure bs.
