    The winter in this area has been harsh in the past couple years, this past winter we had many cancellations from school, which is rare, there is a lot of snow and below freezing temperatures sometimes! In the fall, it is still starting to get cooler out but not freezing like winter. The summers are usually pretty hot, and sometimes even rainy. And in the spring it is very rainy out a lot, and this is the season where you see the most thunderstorms. Fortunately, with the small area of the town, anywhere you need to go is about 5-10 minutes away, so unless it is extremely snowy out, you can get to your destination. It is very windy here the most of the time though, so other than in the summer it is a bit chilly.

    There are many parks near this area, the one closest is actually pretty big, but you have to travel to some other parts of it to get where you would like. The main area on the park has a lake, where you can fish and used to be able to pattle boat in! There are many pavilions for picnic or parties and even a boat house for an indoor party! There is also a path around the lake that is about a mile long that many people walk, jog, run and even ride their bikes around! Also there are multiple playgrounds for children to play on! There is a lot of grass space and plenty of garbage cans so there is no pollution. Although with the pond there is a lot of goose poop you have to watch out for on the walk ways and in the grass!

    There are many restaurants and fast food places in the area. There is a family owned Italian restaurant that is reasonably priced, many fast foods such as mcdonalds, wendys and sheetz, and late night restaurants such as kings and dennys. Also there are a few smaller business places, such as sub shops, bakeries. On top to the Italian restaurant, there are also many Chinese restaurants and a Mexican restaurant nearby.
