Convincing Paragraph: I think you should stay in the Interior Plains because the Interior Plains has really cold and long winters, but it has hot summers, but its very short. Winters can somewhat benefit farmers because it waters they're plants when the snow melts in spring and eventually helps the soil. It also benefits in regards to winter related recreational activities like skiing, hockey, skating swimming, but when  it's summer which is very hot they're are recreational activities you can do like soccer, jogging, basketball etc... They're are also less insects in the cold such as mosquitoes because they cant survive in the cold which is good if you don't like insects and pests. It's also a great place to farm especially for wheat farmers since the Interior Plains are known for they're wheat. This is why i think the Interior Plains is the best place to live in.
