really bad Weather, irritating people, high taxes, Posted On: 10/2/2006 2:06:39 PM
I no longer live in Green Bay and wonder how I ever did. The weather is really bad...the pollution and water are deadly and the people are not that nice. The town is made up of mostly a bunch of clans that have been there for generations. If you come in from the outside you will never be accepted or fit into this community. Just go around town on Thanksgiving or XMAS and you will see, every 5 houses has 20 cars parked outside. The air and water pollution is the worst in the country. The most polluted river in the U.S. runs right thru the middle of town and it is putrid, just go down and take a look at the water, you could almost walk across it. It will take billions to clean up the Fox River. The air pollution given off by the stinking paper mills will burn your nose if you are upwind of them. They actually have an island just offshore Lake Michigan made up of PCB's and paper waste. Northern Wisconsin and the Madison area are a thousand times nicer if you have to live in Wisconsin. The taxes in this state are outrageous, high income taxes, thru the roof property taxes, high sales tax. Heating bills that will leave you crying and short summers that will piss you off. After enduring bitterly cold, dirty snow and clouds month after month after month, you would think something decent would come along by April, FORGET it. The weather is still cloudy, cool and wet every year until June, then you better get out and enjoy it because by August the days are getting short and the evenings getting cool. The only thing to do in the town is watch the stupid ass Packers and I am a fan, but they can't even get that right. It will be another 30 years before those boys win another championship. The Packers have a bad GM and a lousy coach. The best thing that could happen to them is if Bellichek ever became available(like he would ever move to this craphole).
Good players don't want to move to Green Bay. If you have ever lived in a warm climate don't move here. They do have pretty good golf courses in the area for the 30 months you can use them and some of the Friday Night fish frys are good(Brett Favres Steakhouse has a good one).
Horrible weather Posted On: 7/12/2006 2:25:09 PM
No Spring. The 8 years I lived there no decent weather until June. Cloudy, Miserably cold winters from November through March, then generally wet cool and cloudy until June. The snow they get is horrible for outdoor activities. The snow usually turns to dirty piles, combined with the almost everyday cloudiess makes for a depressing place to live.
