I've compromised for 17 years. I'm "done" shoveling snow in 2017 when my daughter graduates .

When it does snow in the south though all hell breaks loose because they have no idea how to handle it.
There is a big difference in the amount snow South Bend sees annually and somewhere like Atlanta.

It doesn't mean the entire state sees snow. CA is a big state, very little below 2000 feet ever sees snow. Same for TX.

My mom is in CA and all winter long she calls and asks "Are you snowed in?"....because she can't comprehend how we can function after getting 5 or 6 inches of snow. *sigh* I used to be like that too .

It is, as the saying goes, the point of the forum.

The best rule of thumb when using acronyms or nicknames for places or institutions is to clearly spell out the full name or the official name at the first use. It's all about looking from the strangers' viewpoint to consider if what you're saying will be clear and make sense to them.

And btw (by the way) it wasn't academic. I have lived in that area, but I didn't recognize the acronym. Nor did I mean anything personal by bringing it up. I figured that if I didn't get it, then neither would others.

Here's to better understanding... assume the best, be kind, and stay calm.
I wouldn't worry about it too much. There are just some people in this world if they didn't complain, or look for things that are wrong, or correcting somebody, they wouldn't have very much to say.

Oh my, I am so confused about the responses you are getting. Definitely look into 46807 or downtown. 46805 might work as well, but I think 07 is nicer. They are walkable, up and coming, have unique architecture, neighborhood character, and tree-lined streets. Those areas are walkable to parks, the trails, local restaurants and coffee shops. Great farmers markets. In the burbs, southwest is nicer than northwest for sure, better public schools. (FWCS is abysmal, even in the magnet programs.) And IMO, North and Northwest areas are much more rural and there are absolutely NO walkable places, although southwest is connected to the trail system. Both have lots of chains and big box stores if you are looking for convenience. If you live downtown, or in the 05 or 07, you will definitely find your lot of secular progressives. These areas are also the zip codes that are increasing in value, but be advised that you will likely want to do private schools. Another bonus: Housing prices can't be beat here!! You can buy a 2500 sq ft house with a yard on a beautiful street for 200K! Good luck.
