It took a while for winter to come, but brrr, it's here now. So while January's Heat Index should really be called the "Wind Chill," winter is finally hot in Milwaukee. Get it? Good.

The Packers are hot, hot, hot ... and the Bears are ice, ice baby.

Somewhere in the middle are the Brewers' off-season moves and the new Wisconsin legislature.

Milwaukee arts scene – Getting well-deserved props

Winter – Cold and at least a little snowy, like it should be
