great winter sports - 4/17/2007
Wausau is a great city if you want to get out of long spells of Florida-like humidity, dryed out parched desert lands, crazy big city traffic that goes on all day, and if you love the northwoods, don't mind a short spring and fall and a long winter. Great place for winter sports activities although the snow doesn't consistently stick around for as long a stretches as it used to. Best part is the relatively mild summers. Beware of the very large mosquitoes that come along for a short while in the summer. lol It may be just my opinion, but my observation is that a higher than average percentage of the people up here have to deal with getting sick more frequently and working with people who are depressed or crabby thru the long often cloudy winter-like months. The upside is that the winters have been milder in December and January than in the past. If you can tolerate the cold and manage to get outdoors enough thru the winter or if you are a homebody or are just looking for a change, Wausau might be for you. Wishing you all success in finding a new home you like![read more...]
