    Caitlin's Bio:
    I’m an Advertising/Public Relations major with a concentration in production and design. I’m also minoring in management and marketing. I’m a social media assistant here at the College and love every second of it. Not only does it involve hands on experience in my major, but sets a great foundation for my future. I love to go out in Duluth and spend a lot time with some of my best friends and family. St. Scholastica has made such a huge impact on my life and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

Prepare For Driving

If you haven’t noticed…Scholastica had a 2 hour delay 😉 haha. I was going to post this last night, but it is just as appropriate for today as well as I’m sure, tomorrow. I have been coming and going from Duluth to North Branch for the 4th year now. When I go home you literally get on 35 and just go all the way down, straight to the exit. Simple enough. I know lots of other students have similar travels. If you take 35 from the cities straight on up to Duluth this post is for you. Throughout the years I have ran into a number of times where I thought the weather was about to kill me haha, like last night. I came back yesterday night and it was the scariest thing ever. We always know that in certain areas the roads are NOT good compared to other areas. I wanted to quickly cover those areas so future people know to be careful and leave plenty of time because these areas will slow you down and become significantly worse. Sometimes around the Pine City area the roads will be on and off icy, but not always bad. It isn’t until Hinckley that you really, really need to watch it. There are many small towns and dark, wooded areas where the freeway never warms up. This creates a dangerous situation for ice on the roads and more so, black ice. Almost every year  I run into this. I believe it is around the Moose Lake area through Cloquet that is usually the worse. It takes forever for the plows to come out and this stretch has the most cars in the ditch I see in Minnesota. Be careful every single time you are on your way up here. I’m sure the way down to Duluth has similar weather and road conditions, but this is my experience coming up from 35. I recommend mapping out areas that you notice become particularly bad because from my experience it has been the same every year and has helped me in times when I should not have been coming back to Duluth!
