    The weather in WI is good. We do not have to many natural disasters. Probably the most common would be winter storms. In the summer we have decent weather, it is warm and sometimes humid, can reach about 90 degrees. In the winter we have very cold weather, there can be a lot of snow some years. During the winter, it can get to be about -40 to -50 degrees below zero.

    Again, I live in a town where there are not many restaurants. However, the restaurants that we do have are great. They provide good food with good service. Because we live in such a small town, I often know the waitress, cook, and other customers there, this creates a good experience.
    My town is very small and does not have many of these things. However, the local business it does have is great. It is all family owned and they all do a good job. I love going to the local businesses and have them greet me, and have a conversation. It is also nice seeing them outside of the business.
