The National Weather Service has released its winter forecast for the Door Peninsula and it could be a snowy one. In recent months, other predictions for a wicked winter have been issued by the Farmers' Almanac. They went so far as to predict a 'polar coaster' which would batter the upper Midwest with freezing weather. None of that doom and gloom is factored into the Door County Highway Department budget for the upcoming season according to Highway Commissioner John Koldziej.
The other concern with a potentially harsh winter is the effects on roads and infrastructure.
