Weather Report

Completed in 1930, the former Wisconsin Gas Company building downtown features a glass flame on top that glows at night. The color and type of flame indicate the weather forecast. Some locals use rhymes to remember the different colors and their meaning:

If the flame is red, warm weather ahead!
If the flame is gold, watch out for cold!
If the flame is blue, there's no change in view!
If there's a flickering flame, expect snow or rain!
