We are considering a move to the Maryville area. Does the county ever have problems with flooding? What are the winters like? Is it mostly ice or snow??

Are the 4-H clubs very active in the county? Does the area have many calf roping events?

Hi Strait, I go to Maryville every christmas. The winters arent too bad just mostly ice and sleet and snow dosn't usually stick around too long. Its a nice college town that has a few restaurant and shopping choices. Im not aware of any major floods in the area. As far as the 4H and Cow Roping events, I have no idea.? Im just a city slicker that goes down to Missoura to visit relatives. (=

Shouldn't have any problems with flooding in Maryville.

Winters I would say are all relative to where you're coming from. Generally brisk with occasional nice days as well. I would say more snow with Kansas City getting a bit more ice to the south. Recent years haven't been terribly bad though.

As for the 4-H...I'm not sure, but I'd assume it to be active. I think there at least used to be a sign welcoming you to Nodaway County driving NB on Hwy 71 from the local 4-H. Maryville is very much an agricultural area, but the city itself is very much a small college town. If you want to avoid this as much as possible I'd say stay away from the Northwest part of the city. But in general I think the college is good for the town and vice versa.

No clue on the calf roping thing? I'd assume there would be stuff like that offered a bit to the south in St. Joseph.

Are you people kidding about the winters? lol. I've lived here for five years and I've never been through such terrible winters in my life! It snows just about everyday and it usually stays from December until April. We always have flood warnings, but we never have a flooding problem in Maryville. Unless you count the basements. Ours and many of our friends' basements flood with all of the rain that falls here.

winters can be bad. in 07 we were without power for a while. snow removal can take a while, not much in the city budget for it i guess. i remember mound city had some competitions advertised. it's a little further north on i-29. i don't keep up with it's activities but the american royal is in kc, 90 min south
