I remember reading an interesting comment on YouTube once that suggest Elwood City is too far south in the country to receive any snow, suggesting that Elwood City would probably be in the deep south somewhere like Louisiana or Mississippi, considering before it became a town, the era was previously swampy and marshland.

I could see that, but snow during winter is simply a better visual for television... like take that Sesame Street Stays Up Late New Year's Eve special... it's the middle of winter, in New York City, and there's no snow to be seen throughout the special... it seems really odd.

Not to mention, there's also some suggestions that Elwood City would be somewhere in the north, if not even Canada (which makes the excessive snow in the winter episodes more believable). The only evidence that would support Canada is the mail carrier and the mail boxes certainly don't look American, lol.

I think I read somewhere (Wikipedia, maybe?) that reminded me that Arthur and Buster's families flew to New York, but Arthur's family merely had to drive to Washington, D.C. So that could possibly suggest that they live in the Virginia/Delaware/Maryland area. Unless the family flew to New York only to take advantage of some flyer miles or something like that (I forgot the real reason why they flew there).
