CLIMATE
The temperature seldom goes above 90 degrees in the summer, usually staying between 70 and 80 degrees.  Although there may be some humid days, the evenings and nights are usually very comfortable.  The countryside is beautiful during all four seasons.  We enjoy luxuriant summer foliage, brilliant fall colors, and ample snow.  Spring begins in April; frost often arrives in September, along with snow in November, which usually remains on the ground until mid-March.  January and February daytime temperatures seldom go above freezing and nighttime temperatures often drop below zero.

The Rib Lake School District serves both the Westboro and Rib Lake communities.  The elementary school, the middle school (grades 6th-8th) and the high school are located in Rib Lake.  A rural virtual academy is available through the Medford school district for grades K-8th.
There are also some home schooling families within the church body.  The Northcentral Technical College, a branch of the Wausau Campus, is located in Medford.  The University of Wisconsin has a branch campus in Wausau.

RECREATION
The area offers many types of northwoods recreational opportunities.  There are numerous trails throughout for hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. Many area lakes and streams lend themselves to boating, swimming, and fishing.  Other seasonal activities may include downhill skiing, ice-skating, and various types of hunting.  Baseball is especially popular during the summer months.
