A peek out at the Great Lakes Radio parking lot at 6:40 am today.

Wind chill temperatures are below zero this morning and the 35 mph gusts of Lake Superior are causing a serious issue with blowing and drifting of snow on all highways and side streets.

If you are commuting this morning, DRIVE SLOW and give yourself some extra time to arrive at your destination safely.
