Greetings and welcome!
It looks like another full week ahead, so I am getting a head start with some events.
This Saturday is the Silver Cliff Picnic & Parade. Here is the sign with the info…
This Friday is also the drive through fish & shrimp fry, a fundraiser with the Friends of the Mountain Ambulance Service. it is at the Mountain Ambulance Station along 32.
In Wabeno they are having a street dance this Friday night. The poster is a little blurry but making it bigger helps.
There is also a fishoree and corn roast/meat raffle on Hwy W by Roberts Lake in Wabeno. There will be raffles and cash prizes too.
From Chris’ event calendar..
Amberg Community Assoc. Annual Duck Run at Mosquito Park
Starts at 11am, public is invited. Paddle wheel, raffles, food and refreshments. Ducks for sale at Mathis Hardware, Driftwood Sport & Fuel, Amberg Pub.
We had a couple of lines of storms roll through yesterday. They brought lightning, heavy rain, and a few wind gusts. There were reports of wind damage and hail over by Rhinelander, but nothing to speak of here. I did see a few hail stones in the heavy rain, but they were peanut sized and there weren’t many of them.
The second line turned into a beast as it moved east. There were pictures on the news from Oconto and Oconto Falls with 3″+ hailstones. One was as big as the palm of the guy’s hand. Door Co took some wind damage too.
There was a 100 acre wildfire near Parkway and Hwy W last weekend. They had several DNR crews as well as several local fire departments, and it still took a while to tame the blaze. Dry conditions were a factor in the size and difficulty of the fire.
That is news from here. Have a good week and thank you for visiting!
