Almost There…Are you ready for the Summer?

Almost There…Are you ready for the Summer?

FINALLY! Mother nature seems to be cooperating now like she should be. Spring is officially here and we look forward to all those warmer weather activities we’ve longed for over this awfully long winter!! What’s the first thing you’re looking forward to when EVERY bit of snow is finally gone and we’ve cracked 70 degrees? Grilling, (although I know a lot of you grill 12 months outta the year) boating, long hikes, getting out on that motorcycle, Brewers game in Milwaukee, Summerfest? What’s you’re pleasure? I’m guessing there are MANY things on the list. I’m actually looking forward to cutting grass, relaxing out on the deck with a cool beverage and of course all the great events we cover in the Northwoods. SAVOR every moment…plan ahead and enjoy! Unfortunately, our warm season is all too short here and I’m not even going to think about the next winter season! In fact, I usually get the snow blower serviced in the spring so it’s all ready to go…NOPE! Not this year. It goes back in the corner of the garage and gets covered up!!! I don’t wanna even look at it for a while! ENJOY the season!

What a weekend!

What a weekend!

WOW!  It was somewhat expected on Friday July 19 but not quite as bad as it got.  WRLO was knocked off the air at about 8pm.  The storm is one of the worst the Public Service workers have seen in 20 years.  As of Monday July 22 many people in the Elcho/Summit Lake areas are…read more »
