Greetings and welcome!

We had about 2″ of snow fall overnight. There is some very light snow still falling mid-afternoon Friday. The NWS forecast is for another 1-2 today, but there isn’t much on radar. The light snow chances continue into tonight.

The UP was under a winter storm warning last night and today for lake effect snow. The western UP got it last night and the central and eastern UP are getting snow today. This early in the season the lake is relatively warm and the wind is very cold so there will be plenty of potential to bring the snow.

The snow isn’t going anywhere, there is cold weather on tap into next week. The warmest day that I see on the NWS four day forecast is a high of 33. At 2:30pm Friday afternoon it is 27 degrees. The TV said that the normal high temp in Green Bay today is 45 degrees.

Normally I don’t worry about winterizing plumbing until around Thanksgiving. This is not one of those years. I had to hurry up and winterize the well house yesterday. The NWS has us for a low of 21 tonight and Sunday night, but Saturday night we are looking at a low of 19 and Monday night a low of 15.

If we have sunny 40+ degree days around those cold nights the well house is fine with the stored daytime heat. With only a high of 33 and a low of 15 I had to winterize early. If you have exposed plumbing it might need attention.

That is news for today. Have a good weekend and thank you for visiting!
