Good morning Wilderness! Winter has clamped down on Minnesota. Roads are going to be icy, the wind is whipping around, and a beautiful white blanket covers the ground. Only 6 more months of this folks.

Something to bring your spirits up a bit, in just 2 short weeks we'll reach the end of all this madness. The days will reverse course, and start becoming longer once again. Of course, it will still be cold, can't help you there.

For today's musical choice, we take a trip back to the 90's.Oasis, one of those bands where it has to be required of you to turn it up. They play loud folks, enjoy this the way it’s meant to be enjoyed. LOUD!!!
