Lamp (switch) repair in Duluth?

We have an out-of-warranty IKEA arc lamp whose remote (on the cord between the lamp and plug) switch has gone bad. Where the heck in Duluth does a person go to get a new dimmer switch installed on a fairly new arc lamp?

(I have found PDD to be a very useful space for service recommendations. Let the tradition continue.)
 

So long, Duluth.

Well, we’re outta here.

A job opportunity is taking us to (much) warmer climes. We moved to Duluth in 2005, got engaged on the beach at 22nd, were married at the Beach House (while Beach House played in the background), and gave birth to a daughter who’s eyes are the color of Lake Superior. I’m glad she’ll be able to say she’s a native Duluthian.

Some things I’ll miss:

  • Snow
  • Crisp fall mornings
  • The greening of the landscape in May/June
  • The view from our front deck
  • The fog horn
  • That lake

We will miss our friends the most. And the delicious beer.

Frozen Superior

Will the Corner of the Lake freeze this year?

Anybody have photos or video of when it froze, solid and smooth, in 2007? Mine are long lost.
