Big storm

A big winter storm is closing in on the Midwest for today. Overnight there is the chance of 6-7 inches in Bayfield and much much more to the south. Park Falls could possibly get 18" of snow! Incredible amounts of snow. There has been talk among friends about where is the coldest area in Wisconsin? It always seems to be around Park Falls or Rhinelander. That cold will be seen again on Sunday night into Monday.The deepest snow always is just south of the Hurley area in the little villages of Upson and Montreal Wi. Bayfield near the lake seems to be protected from the lake effect snows due to its location. But not always of course as Bob Dylan says, it all depends which way the wind blows.

The Exact Phrase:

Bob Dylan's Subterranean Homesick Blues, 1965, encouraged the young to make their own decisions with the lines:

You don't need a weather man
To know which way the wind blows
