With all the economic “blah”, it’s the perfect time to get outside, enjoy the winter weather and get in a good laugh. This Saturday, the town of Trenary will be hosting its 16th annual “Outhouse Classic.” To summarize, it consists of 2-man teams building outhouses (cardboard and wood), putting them on skis and pushing them down Main Street. The teams are very creative in their designs with it usually relating to bathroom humor. Prizes are given to the fastest teams in a variety of age groups. You won’t be alone, either, because this town of 400 swells to 4,000 people for this one day of year! The festivities begin at noon and racing starts at 2pm. So if you’re in the area, make sure to go to Trenary on Saturday! Visit their website for complete details.
As for the weather, we’re yet again in another blizzard warning. Many of the schools are closed in the central U.P. as well as highway M-28. We received almost 8″ of new snow since yesterday and wind gusts have been almost 50mph in some spots. The air temperature, not counting wind chill, is in the single digits. (Just not a very nice day.)
