With the unusually mild winters we’ve had the past 10 years, February 14th was about the time that I’d start laying bets about when the Sandhill Cranes would return to Coon Creek. Today we expect another 4-8 inches of snow… for a total of about 56″ this year this year… more than a foot above the annual average! So instead of thinking Sandhills, I’m thinking skiing. Check the What’s New page on www.greatriver.com for a list of downhill and X-country ski locations along the Mississippi. No doubt I’ll miss YOUR favorite spot so please do comment and we’ll add your favorites to the list.
The Wisconsin Presidential Primary is Feb 19 and La Crosse is a favorite destination for Presidential campaign visits.
TODAY we will see MIKE HUCKABEE at the La Crosse Center south hall ballroom from 2 pm to 3 pm and BILL CLINTON (for Hillary) at the Eagle Center, UW-La Crosse, this evening. Snow will be heavy at times today so that could impact attendance at today’s events. Get there if you can!
MIKE MCCAIN will have a town hall meeting at 2:45 p.m. on Friday at the Radisson Hotel Ballroom.
