There are some decent places to eat in my area but the food can be pricey. There is also not a lot of places to shop, but if I need something I sure can get it if I need it. In the summer time there are more activities going on in the center of town where people can gather and have concerts.

The four seasons are winter, spring, summer, and fall. When its snowy and icy the roads are really dangerous and its hard to get anywhere when you need to get there. The roads don't get cleaned off very good and the potholes are never fixed correctly. I wear all different kinds of clothing depending on the season.
Most people are friendly, theres some diversity.
