Bruenings will be blasting at a quarry on Madison Road on Saturday. They blasted at the same quarry a few weeks ago and it was felt and heard at various places in Decorah. For safety reasons, we will not be posting times, as we don't want this to turn into a spectator event. This post is just for your information only.
