Safest Place To Live?

There's

Hurricanes in the South

Wildfires out west

Bad snowstorms in the North/Northeast

Tornadoes in the Midwest.



Is the tri-state area (Southern Indiana/Ohio, Northern Kentucky) the safest part of the country to live in?

Tucson, a bit hot in June and July, but everything has AC. Otherwise, safe from natural disasters.

You know, 11 months later I still have some of the thorns in me which pop out now and then.

O the average I see and kill two scorpions in my house. I have been stung once and it hurt like heck but its effect wore off in three days. Last two years have been poor years for snakes. The only ones I have seen are dead one run over on the roads.

My friend lives in Phoenix and said the same thing. However, he still has antivenom on hand if his dog ever gets bit.

Had s scorpion bite my fiance a while back when we were sleeping. She woke up and started screaming. Our scorpions in this part of Texas aren't as bad as out West but the welts on her were wild.

Yeah Southern Ohio is pretty safe. Very few strong winds because of the hills and light snow

As long as you're not part of a white trash family weed cartel, you'll be fine.

A friend's son attended UC as a freshman a few years back. I believe his most memorable quote was, "Yeah, nothing like falling asleep to the sound of gunfire." At least it felt safer than Xavier

Lucky. My dad spent about 3 years from middle school to high school in Arizona in the 70s and would have to shovel snakes off the property. Or so he said.

How long ago back? Between my freshman year and my 5th year it was a world of difference regarding the gunshots.

Unless weirdo's friend's kid lived in the off campus ghetto, I guarantee he never heard any gunshots at nice. Of course the biggest tell Weirdo is lying is the first two words in his post.

I'm in my third year at UC now and I've never once heard gunshots. I don't live in Clifton but I've been there all times of day. UC is much safer than X now, which has Avondale right next door.

This kid would have started in the freshman dorms in 2012 or maybe 2013.

He transferred to Ohio Northern.

So it's most likely a kid making up stories to be dramatic. Hopefully the violent biker gangs in Ada leave him alone so he can sleep at night.

Maybe a bit off topic, but that area around UC has really changed in the last 5 years. My son visited their a few months back, and we had my niece show us around a bit (she graduated in 2009). She was blown away by the new construction and how the rough areas between campus and downtown have shrunk.
