At Last! The Big Melt.

It's here! Just look at the Chamber live webcam!  The snow piles are almost completely gone!  Folks are biking the Iron Belle trail.  The waterfalls on Black River Road (and many other locations) are all roaring away.  And yesterday, in ultimate confirmation of true Spring, I put away the Christmas decorations that had adorned the 1905 reed organ here in the Historic Ironwood Depot--no more snow, no more snowman, and no more Christmas carols.   For those of you who follow the Ironwood Chamber on our IronwoodGO smartphone app, you will note that the Chamber FB page is starting to run some great little videos that folks have taken of the area waterfalls.  If you can, get out and see these amazing examples of nature naturing!   All the other normal signs of Spring are also starting to appear:  new phone books delivered to the office, flowers blooming in the Pocket Park, street sweepers picking  up the Winter sand, and volunteers coming into the Historical Society here to clean, reorganize exhibits, and to create a new one or two for the year ahead.  Due to the impending replacement of the carpet under the Chamber office and in front of the entrance door in May, the annual Spring literature re-arrangement will be put on hold until that task is completed.  We will be ready for the start of "the season" on June 1!   Stop in and see us then!
