July 3, 2020

It's Fourth of July weekend in Wisconsin. It's normally a time for outdoors, fireworks, fun, and crowds. But not so much this year. Lots of activities are being scaled back, but many of you are going to want to go out and have a normal 4th. I get it.

Here Comes The Rain Again

Apologies to the Eurythmics. But you will notice the big red banner at the top of the site is telling you we are under a flash flood warning. They mean it. People in the area are reporting various amounts of rainfall from 5-8 inches since this started last night, and it's still coming down hard here outside of Downsville. The farm rain gauge broke the other day so I do not know what we have received here, but it's a lot of rain.

    Nora McInerny Redefining Resilience Tuesday, April 19, 2022 Schofield Auditorium Ticket Info (https://uwec.universitytickets.com/) A writer, whose pieces have appeared in the New York Times, TIME Magazine and the Washington Post, Nora McInerny specializes in difficult conversations: death, loss, illness, mental health, trauma, change, and how to move forward with grief with resilience, joy, love and humor. From having the 4th most popular TED Talk of 2019 to her work as the creator and host of the podcast Terrible Thanks for Asking, she regularly dives into the topics most people avoid with refreshing candor, heart and humor. In doing so, she draws upon her own story of profound loss: During six hellish weeks in 2014, Nora miscarried her second baby, lost her Dad to cancer and became a widow at age 31 when her husband died from brain cancer. In the ensuing years, Nora became a "reluctant grief specialist," bestselling memoirist, and founder dedicated to shining the light on the dark things in life with wit, humor and heart. Speaking to audiences ranging from business schools and corporations to community and healthcare organizations, Nora uses her personal story about living through loss, grief, change and new beginnings to engage with audiences on a deeply personal and universally human level. Nora connects with millions through her authentic and honest portrayal of shared human experiences in her work. She is author of the critically acclaimed memoirs It's Okay to Laugh (Crying is Cool Too), The Hot Young Widows Club: Lessons on Survival from the Front Lines of Grief and No Happy Endings: A Memoir. Her award-winning podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking has been praised for its ability to "continuously, unapologetically, ferociously plows into subjects most people are too uncomfortable to touch" (The Atlantic). Nora's essays have been published in Elle, Cosmopolitan, Time, Slate and Vox. She also founded the non-profit organization Still Kickin, which provides grants to help others in need of medical financial support and the Hot Young Widows Club, which comforts and supports those who have lost significant others. Though Nora addresses challenging and uncomfortable topics, she does so with a light touch. Her disarming humor and wit break down the barriers that often isolate people who are going through adversity and change. Her unforgettable talks inspire audiences to face and conquer any obstacle — with the strength that comes from knowing that we are not alone. As one client said, "Months later, we are still talking about Nora's keynote and how it left all of us with such a profound sense of how important it is to value each and every moment."
