There are not many stores here to shop at. A variety of stores would definitely make the town better. However, you can get everything you need in this area.

This weather is unpredictable, one day its scorching hot, and the next day starts up below freezing
There is some public transportation so if you really need to be somewhere, wouldn't be too much of a problem
