What It’s Like to Live in a Small Town


I grew up in Pine Island, Minnesota.  It’s a really, really small town.  When people ask what it was like to grow up in a town of 3k or less people, I show them this video.  This is only 3 minutes – I lived there for 13 years.

The view is from the front steps of my childhood home.  The street with the “traffic” that you can see in the distance is Main Street.
