real estate: The Active Rain Realtor Nationwide Survey about Wisconsin - 05/24/10 05:43 AM
All real estate is local, and things in our state are certainly not the same as out in the coasts and some markets where real estate took a drastic hit. 
Prices did drop in Wisconsin, especially in the major metropolitan areas like Milwaukee, Racine and Madison.  However, many of the smaller communities and rural areas faired much better in the housing storm.

Carbon monoxide detectors are a good thing to have in a home.
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that is produced when a fuel is burned. Natural gas, wood, oil, liquid propane - all produce carbon monoxide.
