RHINELANDER - The frigid temperatures might have made you think twice about stepping outside the comfort of your home to watch the Super Bowl this evening, but we talked to a couple of people who braved the cold for a little partying.
We visited Bucketheads Sports Bar and Grill in Rhinelander first.
Even though the Packers weren't playing, football fans were still enjoying the game.
"I've thrown parties in the past. If the packers were in it I would probably be throwing a party," said 49ers fan Andy Hildebrand.
"But it's a little cheaper to come to the bar instead of providing all your friends with food and drinks. So it's easier to come down the waterhole and hang out."
But at Cross Country Bar and Grill, the crowd was even more rowdy.
"I think the commercials are fun so far, but I think all the hype is kinda fun to watch," said Dave Laulainen.
"We like to get together and have a good time."
"I think it's hanging out with people. It's something that brings all different types of people together," Kara Fleming said.
"And I feel like I can see all of my friends when I do this. It's fun to be with a lot of people who you don't know who are all excited about something. That's a lot of fun."
RHINELANDER - Our record breaking snow storm left more than 6,000 people across the Northwoods without power.
WPS had to rely on 20 extra crews from Green Bay, Wausau and Menominee to restore power.
But getting to the outages was a challenge.
A representative for WPS says workers are expecting even more outages to be reported.
"Not all of the back roads are plowed yet and that's where a lot of outages are located," said Leah Van Zile, WPS Community Relations leader. "Throughout the day as the temperatures warm, we expect to receive additional calls due to the unloading of snow off of the tree branches."
Eagle River had one of the highest number of customers affected by the outages.
Representatives for WPS say this was one of the hardest winters they've had to deal with.
"We've had some really, really severe wind chills which has really made the temperatures below zero. Typically, only in emergencies do we work in those conditions," said Van Zile. "But pretty much any other time, whether it's a rain storm, a snow storm, a wind storm, our guys are out there working, getting that power back on."
The number of outages dropped below 4,000 since earlier today.
If you're still without power to call 1800-450-7240.
ACROSS THE NORTHWOODS - Do bugs seem to be everywhere in your home, even though there's snow outside? One type of bug in Wisconsin spends the winter inside our houses! They look like Lady Bugs, but they are actually not native to this country.
"They're actually called a multi-colored Asian Lady Beetle. They can be anywhere from a pale yellow to a darker orange and they have black spots on them but you'll see some that don't have spots," says Kerri Ison, UW Oneida County Extension.
