Memorial Day Weekend 2022, the Start of Summer in the Northwoods, and More. Well it’s the eve of that weekend that many people up here wait for all spring, Memorial Day. The roads are packed with happy tourists northwoods bound, with trucks, campers, ATV’s and all the toys of summer. A few foresters at WMS are going to be busy this weekend too, visiting with clients who are making this exodus to the north to visit cabins that they don’t see too often. It is a joyous weekend for many as they celebrate the end of snow and though the lakes are still a little too cold to swim in, they are nice to look at, paddle a canoe in, and maybe even catch a few fish in. Today people in our area are getting ready to plant corn in the garden, I am a little apprehensive about planting this early since w...

Hi all, You can never go wrong with seeing Grant Schneider blog.  Make it a great Holiday  If you are doing fine you might not be interested but sometimes we look for things to improve and are disappointed when we see no change. It is almost as if we are waiting for something to happen. But there are some who know that if they want something to happen, they must be the ones to make it happen. Those who are waiting for it to happen have a much different approach to going on vacation. Many of us spend a considerable amount of time and effort planning a vacation. We will figure out exactly where we want to go and what type of things we want to do while we are there. We’ll make reservations, schedule appointments, and prepare a list of all the appropriate things we need to pack. This planni...

For those who gave it all: We need to Remember and Honor the brave Soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. We need to remember them not just on Memorial Day Weekend but every day!  As we head into the holiday weekend, we need to reflect about the true meaning of Memorial Day. It is about honoring and remembering the many men and women who have given their lives in the service of our country. They died to ensure our freedom. Let’s never forget their selfless service and their ultimate sacrifice.I have discovered over the years that many people do not know the history of this Day. In case you did not know, Memorial Day is always the last Monday in May; hence it should be easy to remember.Do you know what Memorial Day was called before? If you said it was called Decoration Day, you are r...

Previously, I made a video on how to care for a roof by applying moss kill semi-annually. Since making the original video back in 2018 that video has garnered over 12k views and a fair amount of comments. Those results are pretty good for a quick driveway video.Yet, those comments have held a constant theme of "you didn't show us how to apply it and that is why were are on YouTube". Regardless of my personal beliefs of how not difficult applying moss kill kill is by listening to the video or reading the instructions, I made a follow up video showing my exact steps.Here is the second video in the Home Maintenance Minute video. It took using a few GoPro's and the phone & mic to get enough footage to make a video and hope it is actually interesting enough to watch.

  A recession does not equal a housing crisis. That’s the one thing that every homeowner today needs to know. Everywhere you look, experts are warning we could be heading toward a recession, and if true, an economic slowdown doesn’t mean homes will lose value. The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) defines a recession this way: “A recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, normally visible in production, employment, and other indicators. A recession begins when the economy reaches a peak of economic activity and ends when the economy reaches its trough. Between trough and peak, the economy is in an expansion.” To help show that home prices don’t fall every time there’s a recession, take a look at the historical data. There have been six ...
