It was a sarcastic comment on 6 months of winter. It only felt like Winter lasted that long in Wisconsin.

Everywhere I've lived in the South dealt with snow / ice efficiently. The only thing they do differently is shut down schools instantly upon hearing that snow is coming. It's also fun telling people about driving out on frozen lakes and ice fishing. They cannot comprehend ever doing such a thing.

Most of the South shuts down with even the mention of a flurry, and in the areas I have lived they don't pre-treat the roads well at all if any freezing precipitation is in the forecast. These are areas that get winter precipitation ever year, so they have no excuse.

Been spending a bunch of time looking at online real-estate in preparation for our upcoming July adventure travelling thru Rhinelander, Minocqua and on up to Bayfield. I am curious if the governance situation changes on reservation territory of Du Lac Flambeau. The lake and backwoods property look no different to me in pictures and I wonder how life might be affected for non-Natives with regards to property rights. The Realtor we are working with feels it is no big deal living in most reservation areas. Any input would be appreciated.
