I have a job offer in Ketchum and am looking for anything about what it’s like to live around there. I know the cost of living is high, but I think I can just manage that.
I think my biggest concern is the winter. I’ve never lived anywhere with that serious a winter. Any tips on that? Driving? Dressing? (Seriously. How DO you dress for under 0 F?)
I’m assuming, it being a well-to-do area, that grocery shopping and such isn’t too hard to get to. Anything there? I’m looking for an in-town roommate situation, so I wouldn’t be out in the boonies, unlike my prospective employer (an aunt by marriage, actually) who lives an hour out of town.
I’ve never lived in a town that small. In general, what’s that like? From what I’ve found, it sounds like an interesting town, as such things go.
I’ve moved across the country before, so that part doesn’t scare me too much. Probably most of my stuff will be going into storage here for the time being anyway, what isn’t already in there.
Can anybody tell me anything? I’m guessing there’s got to be at least one Doper in that general area. And even if you’ve visited, any impressions you got would be helpful.
Sun Valley, Uninc Palm Beach County, Palm Beach, FL
Now I realize that not you may have provided enough clues for us to figure out which Sun Valley you’re talking about, so my guess would be Col. Mustard in the dining room with the candlestick.
