    Why on earth do you want to come here? Its' the worst place on the planet!

    Just kidding, it's not bad really, winter can be a bit harsh and they are calling for a bad one this year, we get an average of 1-2' of snow on a good winter a bad one brings in around 3-4'. Not sure what you are used to. Spring is always nice around here. There is plenty of wildlife but wether you see it depends on your location. I'm not real familiar w/ mecersburg but I don't think it is that big, not like philly or pittsburgh.
    Have you tried doing a search for their city homepage?
    As far as prices go....
    Subway hoagie $4.00
    Mcdonalds value meal $3-5.00
    gas $1.56 a gallon
    Ciggarettes $2.50-$5.00 per pack
    Soda $1.00

    What exactly is a prep school and why do you need to go there if you have already got your a-levels?
