It is 100 degrees most of late spring, summer and early fall with very high humidity. Nothing to do at all in Mena except hunting and fishing (if you can find places not polluted or privately owned). Housing is very expensive, food very expensive. Most shop in Hot Springs or Fort Smith (an hr away). People move here thinking it is a nice quite community, buy a home then 3-5 yrs sell out when the heat, joblessness, crime or boredom finally gets to them. They cannot sell their homes unless they take a huge loss.
