New Weather Climatic Record Keeping Tool


The Kettle Moraine Area Weather Research Center has determined a more efficient way to document and track climatic data. The “frozen kitty water dish” method has past the initial hypothesis test stage and is now available for scientific use. This indicator accurately tracks past temperature trends, specializing in long periods of freezing temperatures with minimal warm spells. Throw out your National Weather service high temp/low temp charts. The frozen kitty… Continue

It's mowing season, but the morels are good!

Spring in Wisconsin is with us now in full force, with the leaves coming out, trilliums and other wildflowers blooming and, of course, grass growing. Yes, its mowing season again. Time to fill up the tractors and try to keep everything tame. Oh well, what it takes up in time it gives back in relaxation!

Almost 4 months of near dormancy, continuous substantial snow depth the whole time. Its been an unbelievable winter. Been able to start some chainsaw work the last couple of weeks, but the snow depth still makes it hard to drag the branches, boughs and the like.

Thanks for having me!

Thanks for inviting me to the site! It looks like fun!

I moved to my current residence in late November, 2001 with the intention of putting in a private disc golf course (as well as raise a family and so on). The house is on 20 acres on the north side of a drumlin (glacial feature) on the edge of the Kettle Morraine about 50 miles north of Milwaukee. The 'Ashford Pines' as been an evolving process, with two baskets being purchased in 2002, another 2 in 2003, 3 in 2004 and the final 2…
