It's an okay town for a small town. Some community activities but most revolve around the school. No food shopping to speak of. School is okay and slowly improving I believe.

Spring- Still snow on the ground, warm one day cold the next. Summer- hot, rain periodically. Fall- sometimes without warning a severe snow storm strikes. Winter- some years we receive a lot of snow and others it rains all winter.
There are only three restaurants in my area. One's a pizza restaurant with okay food, another would be a sports bar with pretty good food. There is also a ice cream shop that serves ice cream and lunch. There's is not much variety, but for a small town it isn't bad.
