Quiet and white

It may be grey and nothing but white snow but then comes the blue sky winter day that is wonderful. A new year is upon us already and then I begin to plan for activities and trips around the big lake. Winter festival comes next in Bayfield. Anybody for a polar plunge?

Big snow in Ashland Wisconsin

Three feet of lake effect snow like in winters old! Big storm over the last weekend. And more coming for Christmas! It's a real winter this year!

Whats going on with the weather?

Why is it so cold? This year the jet stream is bringing us cold air right out of the north. This brings alot of fluffy snow and even lake effect snows. The weather service doesn't have a clear focus how this winter will go? They called it equal chances of colder or warmer. In other words they don't know. But so far it's very cold and snowy. This is a positive for some who love winter. Skiing will be better and folks on snowmobiles will be happy. Ice fishing will be safer then prior years. Might be a good year for the ice road to Madeline Island. The polar plunge this year could be VERY cold.

Santa is coming next weekend!

Saturday December 14th Santa will be coming via the ferry down at City Dock.
This annual event lets us know the holidays are here. Local retailers have shops open
each weekend for the holidays. The Christmas tree was lit last week. Bayfield has the snow in
time for holidays and skiing at Mt. AshWaBay.
