Surviving Wisconsin Winters
Did you know that average high temperature in Wisconsin in January is 24 degrees? And that the average snowfall for January is about 15 inches! Sure, you don’t want to go outside on those few days when it’s -15 degrees outside. We get that, but there are some really fun things that you can do when it’s 24 degrees and you’ve got some of that beautiful white snow!
Let’s start with the obvious: Build a snowman….but with a TWIST! Snowmen are FUN, right!? It’s easy to build the usual three layer snowman with twigs for arm, coal for eyes and mouth, a carrot for a nose and a scarf. Let’s take our snowmen to a whole new level of creativity. For some inspiration, check out these 24 Clever Ways To Build A Snowman!! Share some pictures with us on our LinkedIn page!
For some of those snowmen ideas, you’ll need some snow spray paint! Here is a way to make your own snow spray paint at home. Don’t worry, it’s completely safe and environmentally friendly. We’d love to see some of the ways you’ve painted the snow. Send some pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org!
How about some fun for the thrill seekers reading this? No problem! A short excursion out to Cascade Mountain in Portage can provide some snow-tubing fun for the whole family. Think about the snow tubing you did as a kid, and now imagine doing that on a “mountain” (more like a really big hill) where you’ve got your own lane and don’t have to worry about bumping into other riders while you whizz down slopes. Now THAT is fun.
If you’re willing to go a little further than Portage for some unique fun, we suggest the annual Winterfest Sled Dog Race in Merrill, WI near Wausau on January 23rd and 24th.
Lastly, for something even more unique and even more fun, you’ll have to go even further yet. But don’t worry, you WILL NOT be disappointed in this. Have you ever seen the Ice Caves at the Apostle Island National Lakeshore? They are a sight to behold. There are very few places on earth where you can walk on a frozen lake and walk into caves formed by the ice! This activity, of course, is weather dependent. Check out the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore website for the latest on the formation of the ice caves. Also, check out these pictures for a preview of what you’ll see. The tours are family friendly….even dog friendly if you’ve got a pouch that can tolerate the cold!
Oh, and there’s one more fun Wisconsin winter activity we’d like you to do. It’s the only one of this group that you can win something for doing! We want to give away a one-hundred dollar Amazon gift card to the first person who does ANY one of these activities while holding a CCA Technology sign and sends a picture of it to email@example.com. What is a “CCA Technology sign”, you might ask? It can simply be a printed piece of paper that, in very large font says “We Love CCA Technology” on it. Or, you can download our logo here and slap it into a Word document and print that off. If you don’t know how to do that, I think we might be able to walk you through it 😊 Give us a call and we’ll help out.
Until next month, have a great start to the new year! 2021!!!! We love you all, bye!
