There's really no preparing for future weather. It's never constant. One day it could be sunny and 75, and the next day it'll be snowy and below freezing. Literally.

Bicyclists and bikers are not taken into consideration. There are constant traffic problems and many reckless drivers.

I wouldn't recommend anyone to visit this town. It's very... Primitive.
