No Fun…

I have to to tell you…I made the trip down to Stevens Point around 9:30 this morning and encountered some of the slickest roads I could ever remember.  I had white knuckles on the steering wheel the whole time.  4 wheel drive was no match for the freezing rain followed by snow.  To me that […]

When you look outside today it is hard to imagine that a blizzard is raging just a couple hundred miles to our west in Minnesota and North Dakota. In North Dakota they have already shut down sections of the Interstate. Here in Northcentral Wisconsin we had our own trouble with freezing rain and sleet this […]
