Just over 2,000 area homes lost power for a few hours Friday morning. 

Karmen Lemke, a spokesperson for Wisconsin Public Service, said the outage was first reported around 10 a.m.

“It was due to the high winds and snow,” she said. “The line coming down took out the service.”

Lemke said power was restored at around 12:30 p.m. Friday. 

She said the affected area was primarily in part of Lac du Flambeau into portions of Woodruff.

Looking at the photo of snowey streets in "Gods Country" brings back many memories of living in Minocqua and attending LUHS Memories are great, but do not miss all the snow. Temps here in TN to be in the 60's for the weekend. Freezer already full of venison.
I enjoy reading the Times on line.
