One comment on “Thompson”

Thompson is a quiet town of less than 600 people in northern Iowa. It has a small swimming pool and a gas station that doubles as a grocery store. Residents have the choice of driving 18 miles to Hy Vee or 40 miles to Walmart for essentials. If you’re used to life in a larger town or city, Thompson can be a bit of a culture shock.
