ephraim-shores-motels-in-door-countyArctic Blast Greets New Year Visitors to Door County

A surge of cold, Arctic air greeted visitors to Door County in early January as 2015 made its entrance. Despite temperatures that dipped to more 10 degrees below zero and wind chill factors approaching 40-below, local merchants welcomed residents and visitors alike with a warm smile.

Thanks to last year’s lengthy visit from the Polar Vortex, Door County residents are used to these temperatures and simply shrugged off the latest cold spell. In fact, the bright white of freshly fallen snow was a welcome change from the brown landscape that colored our warm Christmas season.

Take the opportunity to enjoy nature’s winter beauty by taking a drive to Door County this time of year. The traffic is light, and seeing your favorite landmarks bathed in ice and snow is a visual treat.
