Thanks. They did tell us that it floods, but we are renting so we aren't worried about damage to a property that we own. We will have renters insurance for our stuff and if it is a bad flood then I know that FEMA helped people in the area last time pay for hotels while things dried out.

Also, if we are to put off by the flooding, our lease allows us to leave after a flood without penalty if we chose to do so.

Very good! I'm hoping you won't have to do that. Last year I had to evacuate my apartment during Tropical Storm Lee, and it was not a fun time.

Just so you know, this post inspired me to ask my significant other about the possibility of trying to move back to the Harrisburg area. He said maybe!

Awesome!

We were really skeptical about Harrisburg at first. It is so large of an area and is really different than what we are used to. We are moving from a city of 100k people, but it is so spread out that you would never guess that so many people are there. Harrisburg just seemed so busy!

But we love the mountains and the the culture. I can't wait to walk my daughter down Riverfront park every day and take her hiking and all the other awesome things around there! And the Shipoke area is really friendly!

Very cool! We are planning a looky-loo trip in the next month or two.
