January 13th, 2009.  The official return of winter to Marquette County.  Not that it hasn’t been wintry so far, but this blast came in last night with just the ever-so-perfect mix of single-digit temperatures, measurable snowfall and high winds that created a crackin’ winter’s day for everyone.  As a sign of the hardyness of us Yoopers, though, there were no closings, cancellations or delays and the plows, both public and private, were out getting everyone cleared out so the day could get underway.

HATS OFF TO ALL OF YOU PLOW DRIVERS!! GOOD WORK!!

Thanks to Tony Tollefson with the Marquette County Democratic Party who stopped by to let everyone know about a special buffet luncheon being held at the Landmark Inn in Marquette on Inauguration Day that is open to the public to come in and watch the Inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States.  To hear more about this event, click here to hear our interview with Tony from our “Interviews” section.

Be sure to tune in tomorrow!  Triple-booked before the Shopping Show!  Look out!
