Worst place to live - 2/2/2014

It is the most filthy place to live I have ever been. The locals are all related and look at any new people as their income. You will be ripped off EVERY time you hire someone to work on your home. There is no law saying someone has to be certified, so some guy claiming to be a plumber, electrician, roof repair, ect will not only charge you much more than other locals, but will not do the job right, i hired so many people and some actually laughed in my face as they took my money, and left my family to suffer, sparks shooting out of my electrical, roof pouring in rain, you get the picture. I am not making this up, all the small towns around here do this and though i know this happens everywhere, i have never seen a people so warped and mentally ill enough as to be so unashamed. There is no shame here, there is also no law, the sheriff will show up but will do nothing, and even the locals feel the same about the so called law enforcement....do NOT move here for any reason, you will have a very big x painted on your back...the X stands for here comes another sucker, ha! HA!

Overland, Missouri is a great location, central an - 9/12/2009

Although Overland is an older community it has a great location! It is close to Clayton, the Airport, downtown and Major Highways. There is affordable living for all people in all walks of life. They have a Community Center to enjoy. They have wonderful parks, ie. Mort Jacobs Park, Norman Meyers Park to name a few, there are many to explore, a Nature Park at Midland and Ashby. Ample shopping includes Schnucks, Food for Less and Shop N Save. Not far from the Metro Link. The VFW Hall on Midland near Woodson has the BEST FISH FRY IN TOWN! Muenks Tax Service is a 3rd generation local company in town and Overland Hardware is the place to go for all your hardware needs!!!!

100 degrees in three months - 7/7/2009

It can go from 100 to 0 degrees in 90 days or less - or the other way around! The winters really are not bad and we get plenty of nice pretty snows, but the summers can be horribly hot especially in the cities. If you are in Southern MO where it's hilly, rural and there's lots of trees, it's not so bad. Here in KC, it's hot and humid and there's no big bodies of water. I miss living near the ocean, but I like the snow. Last summer, I thought I would almost rip my face off - I was so hot! I went to Florida in August and it was cooler!

Life In General - 6/26/2009

Troy, MO is a town/city not as small as Bryant Pond, ME where I lived as a child but no where near as large as St. Charles, MO. Unless you live in the city commute is the magic word. You are within 45-60 minutes away from conveniences of city living. We have small strip malls here in town. If you are looking for Sears, Home Depot or stores other than Wal-Mart you need to go to Wentzville, St. Peters, St. Charles or even St. Louis. There are plenty of routes to use to get to your desinations as long as you don't mind the commute. You can feel secure living in a small some what friendly location. It is hot and humid for a 2-4 weeks in the summer. Land locked, and the food at restaurants is average. After living in New England for 30 years I have spent 11 years here and my list of fine dining is short. The price of homes varies from inexpensive older homes to expensive newer developments. You must be very careful not to buy the fixer upper that has structural damage. If you are unfortunate enough to purchase one of these there is little to no recourse to recoupe your monies. This is also the case for modular homes as well. It's an okay place but I am not planning on retiring here.

Sweet people - 3/12/2008

The most distinctive comment I ever hear about Missouri is how nice the people are. I grew up in Rolla and am now attending college in Kirksville, and I have to say--I've never been anywhere where the people are as sweet (and I've traveled all over the country, and few foreign countries too!). If you're strolling in town, joggers and people walking their dogs will wave a sunny good morning from ten feet off. Out in the country, farmers call hello to any person or car that passes, whether they know you or not. Everyone is just as encouraging and helpful as can be. The entire atmosphere is laid back.

Life in Missouri - 7/27/2007

We moved to Missouri from Colorado. Missouri is too humid and hot. It was too much of a change. Also if you are going to live here you need to like bugs because you can't get rid of them! On the plus side ... the lakes are every where and they are warm and wonderful. We had one very nice winter and one very cold (ice storms) winter. Love all the trees and you can grow wonderful gardens.
