Signs of things to come

Sunset over Rib MountainI was enjoying fall so much and now BAM the signs of the upcoming winter are here! First Chip’s Popcorn Wagon pulled out of downtown (and I was thinking how good a Tiger’s Blood shaved ice would be), followed by the appearance of pumpkins at Red’s Market on Business 51 and now bare shelves. Last night the lights of Granite Peak were shining bright… and this morning the snow had arrived!

But winter does not mean hibernation! Get yourself a season pass to Nine Mile (http://www.co.marathon.wi.us/infosubcon.asp?dep=25&sid=7 ) and enjoy the beauty that can only be found in Wisconsin’s winter. If you have a need for speed, try the tubing at Sylvan Hill (http://www.co.marathon.wi.us/infosubtop.asp?dep=25&tid=37).

If the outdoors is not your place, head on over to the Grand Theater (www.onartsblock.org) for a show, sign up for a class at the Center For Visual Arts (http://www.cvawausau.org/) or take in the latest exhibit at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum (http://www.lywam.org. )

Put on an extra layer, dig out your scarf and head on out for the winter fun!
