Default Any information on Pryor and Northeast OK

I am considering a move to Pryor Oklahoma. I have not been out there as of yet, and would love some information regarding this town and Northeast Oklahoma or as I have seen, "The green country."

I am looking for the good, bad and the ugly. I have three kids 10 and under. I am looking for information about schools, weather, life in Pryor, what the country looks like, what there is to do in a town this size, shopping for household items, shopping for clothes or retail stuff, outdoor activities, stuff for kids, etc.

I would really love some information on the weather? Are the summers too hot/humid? Also, how does this part of the country affect asthma as my youngest has asthma.

I have heard that this does not look like stereotypical OK (flat and dry) but is actually a rather pretty area with rolling hills and lots of green.

Any info would be helpful. Thanks.

Ican't help you too much cause we are about to make our first trip to NE OK, next week. Well it isn't our first trip, we considered the area many years ago but thought we wanted to escape the humidity. Now we have decided we would rather live with humidity than stay here with no family for 700 miles.

As for Asthma, is there really a good place for asthamic kids. Our son was and still is a sever sufferer. The doctor told us, when he was very young, most of it has to do with what an individual is alergic to. You can move to the desert for the dry air and if he is alergic to cactus problems will arise. I have never had a problem in my life til we moved to NM> I don't have asthma but from mid Feb until early May I suffer from hay fever so bad: why, because I am alergic to so many of the trees here, especially Juniper.

As for being green, yes, much of OK is green from what we have heard and seen. Its the south part and the panhandle that is flat and plain. Or at least that has been what we have seen so far.

Although Pryor is in NE Oklahoma, which is mostly green and hilly, you won't be "in" the hills in Pryor. If you head about 8 or 10 miles to the east, you'll start getting into the foothills of the Ozark mountains though. You'll notice a big change in the terrain right after you cross the bridge over Hudson Lake into Salina. The hills begin on Salina's west side.

The weather will be hot and humid in the summer, from June to late September. Humidity is bad, but not sticky wet like you'll find in the deep south. Still, humid enough to make it feel pretty uncomfortable at times. As far as asthma goes I wouldn't expect it to be a great place for someone with asthma since I believe that most asthmatics are better off in dry climates; I could be wrong however.

In mide June expect temps to be in the mid to upper 80s, crossing the 90 degree mark a few times before mid June. July/August temps can range from 90-100+, but generally around 95 degrees. September it starts to cool off somewhat, and by the end of September it can start to slip back into early June temps. October throught early November can be pleasant with cool, dry days and temps in the upper 70s to low 80s in mid October to very pleasant 60 degree highs with cool nights by mid November (first freez in mid to late November). December through February are generally cold, with some snow now and then, but never more than 12 inches or so a year. Spring can be up and down with a mixture of all of the above (except for summer temps). I think the last freeze is in late March or early April.

Go to GreatSchools.net to check out the schools. Pryor High School (on that website) had a four out of five star rating. Pryor high student to teacher ratio is 15 students to 1 teacher. There is one high school, one junior high school, and about 6 elementary schools in Pryor. Population is a little over 8,600.

I can't help you with any personal information about Pryor because I've never been there. I hope this helps.

I noticed that the actual name of the town that I want info on is listed as Pryor Creek on the City data website. So now that the name Pryor Creek is in the message thread it may come up on the main page for City Data. So if any of you hae any info on this area that I listed above, I would appreciate it.
