Summarizing Madison's daily weather

Allow me to introduce you to my new hobby: Reading the daily climate summary for Madison. >More
 How Wednesday's snowstorm stacks up

Jennifer O'Leary of the UW-Madison's Space Science and Engineering Center has forwarded some fun facts to know and tell while you wait out today's winter storm. >More

 Spending a Sunday lambing at A-Z Farm

Domesticated farm animals are the coolest. They hang out, eat hay, and make silly noises. They don't care where they poop. They don't care if they get pooped on. They are the ultimate creatures. >More
 Throw me a bone, but put away the balls

I snuggled into the couch, hacking away like a tubercular patient, and clicked on WKOW, but instead of McDreamy or McSteamy, I saw McBasketball. I read the fine print scrolling like the stock exchange across the bottom of the screen, "Grey's Anatomy shall be broadcast at 12:35 am." >More

 Reliving a misspent youth at the historical museum's classic video arcade

No one was as frenzied as I during the video game frenzy of the early 1980s. I was 11 in 1982, the year "Pac-Man Fever" was a top-10 hit, and that was just the right age to appreciate the cartoonish graphics and repetitive play of the day's hit games.
