I will pass on some weather stats/info for you...

Here is a map showing tornado frequency...there is that secondary belt in IL and Indiana and parts of northern KY with a min over southern Kentucky. These look at average number. Of course....all it takes is one tornado to cause devastation.

Cadiz is where I live. Been here 6 years part time, 2 years full time. My wife and I had a long distance marriage the first 6 years. I like it here. We bought a nice 3 br 2 bath home on an acre for $72,000. We're about a mile and a half northeast of town. When I moved, we looked at some houses in other towns in the area and kept coming back to Cadiz. Once again I coudn't tell you much about the home schooling in the area. There is a big christian school in Hopkinsville, Heritage Christian Academy, about 18 miles away. Don't know but it wouldn't surprise me if they have students from here in Trigg Co. (Heritage Christian Academy | Hopkinsville, Kentucky | Welcome Today!). To me, the people here are friendly. I have a friend in California who used to be a regular here in C-D and is looking to move here in the next few years. She has a college friend who lives here, came to visit, and fell in love with the place. Yes, there are some hills especially as you go down towards the lake where it levels out. Cadiz is quite a bit smaller than Murray, mainly because of the college. If you like antiques, there are 6 antique shops on Main Street in Cadiz.
I'll let the Chambers of Commerce of Cadiz (Cadiz-Trigg County, Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development Commission, Tourism) and Murray (Murray, Kentucky - MyMurray.com) show you a little. I liked Murray because, around a college campus, there is usually something to do. There are concerts, movies, etc. In Cadiz, there isn't a theater or anything. Closest place for a movie is Hopkinsville, 18 miles away. I'm not saying there is nothing in Cadiz. I like nice small relaxed towns like Cadiz.
Best thing you should do is come down and spend a week checking out the area and see for yourself. Somebody mentioned the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, here's the web site: Land Between The Lakes | HOME

Even if you settle in Cape, west Kentucky isn't far away. Drive down and visit sometime. I grew up watching KFVS tv station out of Cape Girardeau before cable came out.

Future, I live here too. I have all my life. I've had chances to move away, but I like it too much here. If you think that of Kentucky, then why stick around? A place can be anything you want it to be.
