The four seasons here are very strange. I live in Nebraska so we can have snow, sunshine, and rain all in one day. The weather doesn't really effect my life that much. In the winter we get quite a bit of snow and usually a blizzard. In the spring we get a lot of rain which usually results in floods. In the summer its very hot with occasional rain. In the fall its cool and very nice weather.

We only have two restaurants in town. We have a bar that serves food everyday but only until about nine o'clock at night and they have pretty good food. We also have a fast food restaurant in town, however, its only open until about nine o'clock at night. Its only open during the spring, summer, and fall. So there isn't really a whole lot of options.
I live in a small town, we don't have very many businesses. However, we do have business that give us the things we need. We have a pharmacy, grocery store, dollar store, a large car dealer ship, a salon, and a few others. Compared to big towns we don't have as much as them but we get what we need.
