Stormy Kromer Hat
The Original Stormy Kromer Wool Cap in Red & Black

Stormy Kromer and his hat have a long history with Wisconsin (Stormy was born in Kaukauna, Wisconsin) and Yoopers. Originally hand made by Stormy's wife Ida beginning in 1903. Now continuing to be made in the USA, this practical winter hat is made in a variety of colors and patterns. This past summer my wife Jo bought the hat pictured to the right . . . and she loves how convenient it is to raise or lower the ear flaps depending on the weather.

See our article and pictures on taking the Stormy Kromer Factory Tour.


I am surprised how reasonably priced are these coffee table books by Craig Blacklock. He is an amazing photographer. If you've never taken a Pictured Rocks Boat Cruise or an Apostle Islands Sea Caves Cruise, this will give you an idea of how exceptional are these natural wonders.
