UPDATE ROUND 2: Flashing Yellow Light Reactivated On Highway 33 With Explanation

The flashing yellow lights were installed in the Duluth area some time ago and I do admit that I feel a bit funny "going on yellow".  The process has now expanded to the Cloquet area and has some of the residents confused.  I posted this awhile back to inform motorists, then they pulled the flashing yellow light because it caused confusion and thus, accidents.   I'm updating the blog for the second time with news that they've now added signage and the flashing yellow light is back on.

Testing of Virtual Classes May Make Snow Days A Thing Of The Past

When I was young we only had snow days because of snow.  Now it can because of excessive snow or extremely cold temperatures.  Apparently they thought we were tough and could brave the cold in the 70's and 80's.  While students think a snow day is cool, parents on the other hand are faced with finding child care on short notice.  Despite what parents have to deal with, one school in central Minnesota is saying snow days in their district will be a thing of the past, here's how.

Proctor High School And Lakeview Christian Academy Send A Message Of Safety And Compete For $100,000

I was asked to vote on Facebook.  Wait, what?  Proctor Schools or Lakeview Christian Academy could win a contest that would bring The Band Perry to the Northland or net them $100,000!!  Why wouldn't you do something as simple as cast your vote once a day until the contest ends?  You don't have to attend either school or even live in the city to help with a vote.

Why Do The Leaves Of Our Trees Change Color In The Fall?

I was just talking to a friend about the fact that it seems like we haven't had the brilliant fall colored leaves that we're use to.  Some areas have them, but some places that I've enjoyed in previous years still haven't made the change.  I thought it was weird and wondered why.  I also realized (and I may have learned this in school YEARS ago), but I  don't remember why the leaves actually change colors, so I did a little research.
