The first thing I HAVE to mention is the first snowfall contest. If you haven’t yet entered, if you have been waiting and checking the extended weather charts to get the best read on trends, you had better get a move on. The deadline is midnight tonight. Just go here and predict the date of […]

Cars That Drive Themselves!

No winner in the first snowfall contest yet (obviously!) and it doesn’t look like much chance of an inch or greater of snow for the next week to 10 days. We might have to wait until Halloween or even November before we find out who will win the prizes (hundreds of dollars in gift cards […]

The Leaves are Falling!

I can’t believe that it is almost October, and that some places up north are almost to peak for fall color!  Fall officially started a week ago but across the area it has felt like fall the entire month of September.  Fall is such a gorgeous time of the year with the leaves changing colors.  […]

This past weekend I was talking about how we have to blog on our weather page and that I am always looking for new ideas.  My Grammy, like most most Grandmas, suggest I talk about an event in history.  She starts to tell me about Hurricane Bob which hit Massachusetts in 1991.  She couldn’t recall […]

The only counties below 50% are Clark, Jackson, Juneau, Adams, and Waushara. The only problem with this year’s color season is that the weather has not been very […]
