You pile up enough tomorrows, and you’ll find you are left with nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays. I don’t know about you, but I’d like to make today worth remembering..

With having two active kids in the family, it can be difficult to keep everyone on course. These last two weeks our household’s schedule has been turned upside down with school and other activities. My daughter is active in this weekend’s performance of The Music Man. Be sure to head over to Wausau East and check it out, I guarantee you’ll enjoy it.

Closing Thoughts

One year ago this week was the Merrill tornado. The Wausau Daily Herald ran a nice retrospective on the rebuilding process. Preparedness is important as severe weather can come without warning. This next week is Wisconsin Severe Weather Awareness Week. There will be a statewide drill and test of the severe weather alert system on Thursday April 19. Details on this event can be found at the NWS Green Bay site.
