In case you haven’t noticed, the weather is pretty fickle everywhere, and in Door County, we’ve experienced roller coaster of weather changes. A blizzard three weeks ago evolved into a period of single digit temperatures with well below zero wind chills, followed by a few days of 40+ degrees warm-up putting a white Christmas in doubt. Since the winter season officially begins today, no doubt we’ll have more snow and cold in true Door County fashion. If you’re not busy after your Christmas holiday celebrations, plan now to be up here for New Year’s Eve for the 3rd annual Cherry Drop (a giant cherry on a crane next to Husby’s, dropped as revelers countdown to midnight). There will be ice skating and a bonfire (weather permitting) at the Sister Bay Sports Core, fireworks and a party atmosphere on Highway 42. Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay, which is the closest lodging facility near all the activities, invites you to stay with us to kick off a new year and a new decade.
