One year ago today....
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

If you thought this week's rainy weather was crappy, let's not forget what happened one year ago today.

As Tony Huppert of Spring Valley stated, on May 2, 2013, the Spring Valley area was hit with 18 inches of snow and a power outage for eight hours, longer for some.

"Ron Powell is taking a second look at attempting his media delivery with all the trees down and road closures," Huppert said. "The 400 hp. diesel generator producing electricity at the Team Oil Travel Center was the only means of normality the area could enjoy. Over 1,000 customers made refuge at the Team Oil Travel Center that day."
