It’s time, New Year’s Day at high noon the Jacksonport Polar Bears (old and new members) will jump into Lake Michigan. The Jaroshs checked the water temp today and found it to be a balmy 32.6 degrees. Come to watch, or if you want to swim look for the registration station in Lakeside Park, Jacksonport. And for more details visit the Jacksonport Polar Bears website here.
Before you head to the swim, have breakfast at the Jacksonport/Northern Door County Firefighters Pancake Breakfast. Serving in the Jacksonport Town Hall from 8:00 to 11:30 a.m., early risers can enjoy a hearty breakfast and the late riser will find a convenient lunch. All proceeds benefit the local fire associations we rely on for our emergency and fire protection services.
Mike’s Port Pub and JJ’s of Jacksonport will both be open, great places to grab a hot or cold beverage and lunch.
See you on Thursday, New Year’s Day!!

Learning to ice skate in Door County.
The temperatures are low–below normal in Door County–so it’s time to get out the skates, get out the chair and learn to ice skate. With these temps we’ll have lots of opportunity this winter!
Some places to ice skate in Door County:
The Theresa K. Hilander Rink in Sister Bay
The Jacksonport Rink on County V in Jacksonport
Maintained by the Jacksonport Volunteer Firefighters as conditions permit. Check www.Jacksonport.org for availability and contact information.
The City of Sturgeon Bay maintains an ice rink as weather permits, located on the parking lot of the Memorial Field Warming House during the winter season. Watch the newspapers or listen for radio announcements for the schedule.

Tis the season for pumpkins and deer in Door County. The roadside farm stands are full of round, orange pumpkins. While you are out hunting for your pumpkin, watch the roadside for more than the farm stands…the deer are out in full force now day and night!
I was out taking pictures at a new listing in Jacksonport, Door County last week and spied this great shed. I grew up in the neighborhood and remember it at Art’s Shed, the place he kept his little tractor. It hasn’t been used for probably 30 years, but still stands and brought back a flood of warm memories.
Turn down your heat by 1 degree or two and save up to 10% off your utility bill.
Eighty percent of the energy used in a home is for heating and hot water, so carefully managing our domestic heating can make a big difference in our utility bills and the amount of carbon dioxide that we create. Carbon dioxide is one of those greenhouse gasses reported to be responsible for climate change.
Our homes and businesses are often overheated. The ideal living room temperature is 65 to 68 degrees farenheit and bedrooms are healthier at 61 degrees.
Does that sound a bit cool to you—after this week of below zero temps here in Door County I know it does to me. I’m going to test this–one degree at a time! I’ll let you know how it goes as far as my comfort level and my utility bill.
