"Questions and comments"
Questions and comments - 7/17/2007||
My husband and I will be retiring in about 10 months. We have been researching and looking at diferrent places for about the past three years. In all that time, Franklin is the only place I have read about where the comments are almost 100 % positive. And I mean I have REALLY been reading and researching. We will be visiting Franklin this Sept. I am so afraid I will love it and my husband won't. His reasons:
Fear of tornadoes, the summer humidity, the distance from his grown children and grandchildren from his first marriage. (they are in Oregon).
I understand all of the reasons, esp. the distance. However, I can think of many positives based on what I have read.
Can anyone speak to the frequency of tornadoes? And how many months is it very hot and humid? Also, my husband is a fisherman. Is there any fishing nearby I can tempt him with?
He also loves to shoot his guns (skeet, some hunting of small game and birds)anything like that around there?

Although there have been a few tornadoes in Nashville, even though I lived there over 24 years and never actually saw a one, the threat is still there. I never saw one in Fraklin either. It does get hot and humid in Franklin but it's only during the summer months, mainly June,July, and Aug.
I'm not too sure about fishing and hunting in Franklin area but there are several lakes in and around Nashville. Nashville is only about a 20min ride from Franklin. Hope your visit went well and you were able to get a feel for the city.
