This is an information post. This is not meant to alarm people. In answer to some questions we don't do anything with wild animals living in the wild.

We received a report today of a possible Cougar/Mountain Lion spotting south of Lake Moore along Co Rd 25. It was early this morning and the reporting party did not get a great look do to the lighting conditions but knew it was a different shaped head and not a deer. The only thing we can really do with this information is to pass it on to you for safety. Please use caution if dealing with ANY wild animal. Thank you to the person who reported this sighting.

Well here we go with our first Winter Advisory of the season. Just a reminder that we do not always post these. Over the course of the winter season, please pay attention to weather announcements. Use caution and dial 511 for road conditions. Have a safe Winter!


* WHAT...Snow and blowing snow expected. Plan on slippery road
conditions, including during the morning commute on Friday. In
addition, significant reductions in visibility are expected.
Tree branches could fall as well. Total snow accumulations of 2
to 5 inches are expected.

* WHERE...Portions of central Minnesota, east central Minnesota
and west central Minnesota.

* WHEN...Until Noon Friday.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Winds gusting as high as 45 mph will
cause widespread blowing and drifting snow.


A Winter Weather Advisory for snow and blowing snow means periods
of snow and blowing snow will cause primarily travel
difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited
visibilities, and use caution while driving. The latest road
conditions for the state you are calling from can be obtained by
calling 5 1 1.
