Warning! Winter Weather!

November 10, 2009

It may not seem like it now but winter weather could be just around the corner. November 9 – 13 is Winter Weather Awareness Week in Wisconsin.  (That’s a lot of w’s.) It’s a good time to make sure you know where your ice scraper, snow shovel and warm clothes are.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation Travel Information site is useful for tracking winter driving conditions in Wisconsin.  The National Weather Service’s Office of Climate, Water and Weather Services has this page of useful information including the temperature and precipitation outlook, weather forecasts and warnings, awareness/preparedness articles and historical winter storm data.  A few minutes of preparation could make a difference for you and your family.  Have a safe winter!

    Ahhh, the great Northern states. I live two time zones away from you, in rainy Seattle, Washington. But I’ve been digging for my ice scraper and gloves, too. The worst part, and I bet you can relate to this, is talking to friends who’ve moved to other parts of the country. When I complain about seeing my breath when I hike on the trail, or about needing to not get caught up in avalanches, my Florida friends delight in rubbing in the fact that it’s 80 degrees where they live.
