No Snow? No Problem!

Thursday, January 12, 2017 3:00 PM by Elizabeth Wood

Winter birthdays in the Midwest can be difficult. I should know...my birthday is in January. You can't have outdoor parties (unless you want to freeze) and you can't ask for fun pool toys or cute summer clothes because you won't use them for 6 months! There is one good thing about winter birthdays though...snow!

Around my birthday in particular, the Rockford region also gets to celebrate the annual Illinois Snow Sculpting Competition!

When you hear about a famous band that came out of Rockford, Illinois, you obviously think of Cheap Trick. Then who is someone else impacting the music industry? Most people you ask wouldn’t know the answer, and some might give you something along the lines of Miles Nielsen and the Rusted Hearts or another local favorite like Derek Lutrell, but how many would think of The Color Morale?
