    For the most part the weather is ok. Being raised on a farm we depend on the weather to maintain our crops. During the Winter months if we have had severe snow and sleet it is difficult tending to our beef cattle that we raise, but with the machinery equipment / tractors that we have we make it. During the Summer months if it dry and we do not have sufficient rain for our crops we lose everything from our vegetables for our consumption to the crops that we grind for our cattle. During the Spring we occasionally have tornados in our area, but most of all we have a lot of rain. Sometimes causing flooding and loosing our crops to where we have to replant in hopes that they can be saved. During the Fall it is usually normal weather, we occasionally have some heavy rains, but nothing out of the ordinary.

    I live in a very small town, we do have a local Wal-Mart and two local grocery stores. We do not have any clothing retail stores nor do we have nice restaurants other than our local pizza hut and two Mexican restaurants. We have two hardware stores and one tractor supply retail. With what businesses we do have, they try their best to be competitive and help the economy the best way they can. The local industry is very low and there is nothing nowhere for the younger generation to want to stay after their education is completed. They are all looking for employment in the surrounding counties or even out of state.
    For the family owned restaurants that we do have they are average. We do only have one nice dine in Mexican restaurant and one family owned country cooking restaurant in our little town. We do have a pizza hut and a very small Chinese restaurant but that is all we have. For the younger generation we have to travel about 45 to 100 miles to go to the movies or to a nice restaurant. There are no dancing clubs or activities centers available. We do have a bowling alley that just recently opened.
