Summer can get into the 100s and an occasional drought is possible. Winter can go down negative with a good possibility of a snow storm, and an almost definite chance of a white Christmas.
Work in the area consists of a grocery store and one fast food place taken by high schoolers, otherwise its factory work or small service companys.
