We often hear people in the Northland complain about things like the weather and the roads, but living here does provide plenty of benefits over other parts of the country. For example, did you know that Duluth was named of the best cities to live in to survive a nuclear apocalypse?
Last week ended with a record-setting snowstorm, which caused significant damage to the Lakewalk in Canal Park. The City of Duluth has since been working on repairs, and are now reporting that a segment of the Lakewalk has been reopened.
With fall cleanup in full gear across the Northland, the worst part is often having to deal with what to do with all your yard waste and garbage. Luckily, for Superior residents, there are two free landfill days coming up.
A Night Without A Home, a rewarding and challenging event, takes place this weekend in Superior. Residents looking to help the homeless will gather and ultimately live and sleep outside in an effort to collect donations to assist homeless residents in Superior and Douglas County.
Fall means looking at the beautiful colors as leaves change. Then, it means spending countless hours raking and bagging those leaves to get them out of your yard. Luckily for residents in Superior, you can have your bagged leaves picked up from you home.
I'm a sucker for themed runs and based on how many people I see participating in them, you probably are as well. It's even better when they're for a great cause like the Jingle Bell Run in Duluth, which benefits the Arthritis Foundation.
It's a great time of year to hit the road and explore the beautiful fall colors. It's also a time of year where some great 5Ks pop up in Minnesota and Wisconsin. This Saturday, those two things combine for a great event near North Branch, Minnesota.
