News: Bones found in northern Wisconsin town.

All the television stations have this clip on their websites. I pulled
this clip off of WSAW from Wausau. Another great article from the Ashland Daily Press.

Bayfield is a town 9 miles due north of my location, also on Chequamegon Bay. In fact, see one of my
previous blogs about Apple Fest for a little more information about Bayfield.



While the newspaper archives from that time period are all subscription... I managed to find a little info (to the left).

The Monthly Weather Review is part of the
American Meteorological Society (AMS). An archive of their data can be found here. The information I found is located in Volume 70, Issue 7, Page 165, in the year 1942.

The background in the article

It seems that a cold front was moving through the region but stalled out
overnight. Storms continued firing along the front, possibly training.

Rainfall totals

Bayfield: 8.68"
Ashland: 3.01"
Vilas Co: 4.84" to 8.06"
Florence Co: 5.06"


The large hill two miles NW of the town has a maximum elevation of 1345 feet amsl. That is about 743 feet above Lake Superior.

Adjusted for Inflation

$500,000.00 in 1942 equals about 6.6 billion dollars ($6,614,825.58) in 2006. A simple inflation calculator is here.
