We do not have 4 seasons

I have lived in Spokane for 28 years. The statement that Spokane has four seasons is inaccurate. We get 3 to 4 feet of snow most winters. Yes, you read that correctly. You had better like dealing with tons of snow and know how to drive on icy streets. Check out You Tube if you don't believe me. The snow generally stops in March and it stays chilly and cloudy until after the 4th of July. After July 4 it shoots up to over 95 degrees. It finally gets nice in August, but that is when the farmers decide to burn their grass fields so the air is filled with smoke and chokes your lungs. So you have to keep your windows closed.
There are no jobs here. Do not move here unless you have been transferred.
The downtown area used to be nice, but gangs have moved in and it is not safe to be downtown after 5:00. Kids hang around and intimidate you until you stop coming downtown.
The bus system is excellent.
I realize this is a negative review, but you are been forewarned. To say that this is one of the best retirement cities is ridiculous.
