    The only real weather problems you have to worry about are the tornadoes that happen in the summer. However, most of them do not do any damage, but the warnings can disrupt normal life.
    The variety of restaurants is severely lacking. However, the ones that are there do a great job of providing a reasonably priced meal.
    I believe that the local businesses do the best that they can here. Most of the stores are family owned, which is nice because it you know you are supporting your friends when you shop there.
