The opening of this week’s update is being taken over by Bad News Barrett.
“Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium received NO SNOW since the field conditions update one week ago. BUT, I’m afraid I have some BAD NEWS! The temperatures have not risen above 20° in the last week and it was below zero again this morning. That means you have EXACTLY THE SAME AMOUNT of snow as last week and you are seven days closer to the start of your baseball season.”

The Caribbean Leagues have finished their playoffs and the 2014 Caribbean Series has started in Venezuela.
There were no ex-Timber Rattlers involved in the Venezuelan League Championship Series as Magallanes beat Caribes 4 games to 1.
The Championship Series in the Dominican Republic wrapped with Licey (w/ Rene Rivera) beating Escogido (w/ Jason Rogers) 5 games to 3.
The only two active ex-Rattlers in Caribbean Series are with Puerto Rico. Those players are Jeff Dominguez and Martin Maldonado.

As of this post on January 17, there are 76 days until the Opening Night game against the Peoria Chiefs on April 3, 2014.
Here are a few photos of the field from three perspectives. In the future, I will include a picture from the camera platform beyond the wall in center. Today….the snow was a little too deep.
All I can say about this series of pictures….At least the sun is out today.
