Man, many of these pics are making me homesick....though I may not be a native of WI, but there seems to be some magnetic force that keeps me looking that direction and makes me want to call it 'home'.
Guess one would never know, it could end up being just that in the future.

The 2nd one I know sounds crazy, but we dont have a Piggly Wiggly out here and that store (along with Winn-Dixie) gets used a lot in movies that are filmed in the midwest. Couldnt resist showing the folks out here there really is a Piggly Wiggly, lol.
I miss WI and hope to go back again someday, whether to live or visit. While visiting there, we were in Stoughton, Evansville, Madison, Janesville (where we met up with someone who had a horse for sale), Oregon and Albany. I thought there was a pic of the water tower in Albany, but guess it was in my old, now gone, computer .
So much green, so much to see, so many pretty things about WI...not to mention the good ol' pleasant hospitality of the folks there. Very impressive.
Hey LA- Love it! We live in La Crosse and I found out you can buy the t-shirts the clerks wear. They have the pig's face on the front and the word "Piggly" and on the back is the pig's rear end and the word "Wiggly".

Winters will be very hard for you - especially mid-January through late April - I feel, coming from Alabama. However, I believe you'll LOVE the spring (late April through early June), summers (especially) and falls in comparison to Alabama. So...half the year you'll hate WI weather compared to AL, and half you'll love the weather compared to AL.

I want one!! Can I order them online? That is so cool.
Again, the pics in here are so pretti-ful. You dont see that much green, hardly any, in many parts of Az here.
