The weather in this area can be very bipolar, changing from one extreme to the next very quickly. Summer's are hot and humid and brings about the likelihood of storms and tornadoes, which also can occur here in the early fall. The weather in fall is unpredictable, for it can feel like summer has continued on or like winter came early. It has snowed prior to Halloween before for example. Winter's are long and harsh, bringing about snowstorms, blizzards, and icy conditions. My most essential wardrobe item would definitely be sweatshirts.

There has always been a bad rep for our area because of major past crimes from long ago, such as the ROCORI high school shooting that occurred in 2003. Also recently an officer was killed in the line of duty which brought more bad stuff to our reputation. I do feel safe overall though in our community for we all seem to be very trusting of each other.
With several restaurants and bars in town, there is always the choice for variety and service is almost always splendid, giving customers an enjoyable experience.
