From being in Illinois the weather is always a problem here. From living and being surrounded be fields of corn or beens, we need a lot of rain but sometimes it rains to much and it hurts us. In the winter it can be terrible from everyone living out in the country there it hardly every snow plows that plow the roads for our cars to go back and forth to school. In the winter if you do not have a 4x4 truck then you are in major trouble because you will not be able to go to school. Sometimes even have a 4x4 truck does not even help you in the snow.
Review Andover Township
Our town is a perfect little town. We do not have much because it is very little, but it gives us the opportunity to go to bigger places to find everything that we need. While living in a small town has hurt just a little it has made everyone here grow closer to each other and when something happens to one person it is like it happened to everyone in the town. It is like this because it is like a family member got hurt and they do not realize it till it happens.
Going to school is easy if you live in the country then the school bus will pick you up even if you live in town. If there is someone in your family that can drive they can drive you just as easily as well because there is never any traffic unless there is a tractor on the road and then you can not pass it. IN this town there are no taxis, trains, or subways because they are not needed.
