Snow shoveling is one of the dreaded aspects of wintertime in the Twin Ports. This year has been particularly challenging with the Christmas ice storm that left a mess still visible on many sidewalks, driveways, and roads around the area. Being we're expecting a brief warm-up, now is a good time to make efforts to make sure sidewalks along your property are as clean and safe as possible.
Maybe you've seen the video that's been going around Facebook that shows how you can use a mix of rubbing alcohol and water to spray the frost away on your windshield. It was made from a meterologist in Tennessee, and he makes it looks like we are dummies for scraping away all these years. So I tried the mixture out on a few icy windows in our parking lot.
There use to be a day when a -35 and -40 below wind chill was considered dangerous and our schools closed for the safety of our students. What has changed that they now go to school in these extremely cold temperatures? I have scoured a couple local school's websites and can't find the magic number posted anywhere.
Although we should all know how we need to dress when it gets as cold as it is outside this week, many people still find themselves lacking the necessary gear to prevent frostbite, which can happen faster than you think.
If you have plans of traveling on Christmas Day in Northern Minnesota or Northern Wisconsin, forecasts are continuing to point to a messy winter storm that will make travel difficult, or even dangerous.
I set out yesterday for my first ice fishing excursion of the season. I loaded up my normal gear including my auger, shelter, heater, lantern, flasher, etc. But this year I brought one more item with me: my tablet.
