Greetings and welcome!

It is a chilly one outside tonight. Right now Athelstane Weather is showing 31.8ºF and I would be surprised  if it didn’t drop a little more by morning. It is about the normal time of year for the first hard frost or freeze.

We had been enjoying really pleasant weather in the 70s for the past week or so. That ended with a cold front and some rain, and now we are looking at pleasant more seasonal weather in the 60s for the next week or so. There is no obvious chance of rain for at least a week.

The fall colors are quite apparent now, and this should be a good weekend for viewing them. Chris commented on how fast that they changed late last week and into last weekend. The maples and paper birch are starting to show some color, and everywhere you look there is something changing.

We are not at peak yet, but it is coming. I saw a picture on the front page of the Iron Mountain Daily News that showed a spectacular maple forest in its full glory. That should be here soon.

That is news for tonight. Have a good week and thank you for visiting!



Friday night 9/25/15

Greetings and welcome!

My apologies for the brevity of last night’s post. I really wanted to get the information out, and it was late.

Tonight I have an event to add, and an official update on the 141 construction.

The added event is The Crivitz Fall Harvestfest Craft Show at the Crivitz High School Sturday the 26th.

Item two is the 141 detours in and south of Crivitz. When I was there today it was not the Peshtigo River Bridge being replaced, it is the Left Foot Creek Bridge about 2 miles south.

Also being closed is the railroad crossing right by the Citgo in Crivitz. When I looked today they had the rail bed excavated back in both directions and they were ready to rip up the road crossing.

You can get around both obstacles with a little navigating.

When I was in town today I got a picture of a run off copy of the official take on the construction. Between the copy of a copy of a copy and my $8 TracFone, it isn’t very good, but clicking it and making it full size will help.


The weekend weather looks great, get out there and enjoy it while you can. Have a good weekend and thank you for visiting!
