Friday on Lake Effect: Salting Sidewalks, Packers-Giants Game, MilMag Live, Milwaukee Address Tiles

Friday on Lake Effect:

A soil scientist asks you to pause and consider the impact of salt before spreading it over your sidewalk and driveway. Later, with the NFL playoffs starting, our sports contributor has an unpopular prediction about the Packers-Giants game and its quarterbacks. We explore a unique collection of high-flying artwork. Plus, a local writer explores the history of Milwaukee’s unique address tiles.
