    It's Illinois, so the weather can be unpredictable. However, natural disasters happen few and far between.

    Local businesses include a grain elevator, a post office, and a restaurant/bar.

    The overall job outlook in the area is not good. The grain elevator and restaurant/bar would be the only employment options. You would have to look elsewhere for work.
