    "It snowed this last week. It was harmful, it was hurtful to people, and people suffered from it. They were angry at it." The town attends the high school's production of 'Our Town,' Sarah Peterson worries her parents by becoming successful, and Mavis investigates Vern's past, in a monologue from May 2013.

    "We're calling it spring there. It sort of seemed to be spring for a few hours here and a few hours there so that's what people are saying when they run into each other on Main Street." Spring arrives in Lake Wobegon, young people begin to go outside without jackets, and Lyle Janske runs the high school basketball concessions stand to take his mind off his son's illness, in a monologue from March 2010.

    "We've had snow out there, we've had about a foot-and-a-half of snow here this last week. It just sort of killed some people. They're just tired of winter but it snowed anyway, despite their objections." Pastor Liz returns from a vacation to Carmel, California and spends some time at the Sidetrack Tap, Marilyn Hedlund evaluates her past romances, and Clint and Irene Bunsen celebrate their 38th wedding anniversary at the Moonlight Bay Supper Club, in a monologue from February 2011.
  • Saturday, March 7, 2015 5:00pm
    "It is warming up, getting up into the 30s, and 40s are forecast, and Daylight Saving Time starts on Sunday so there will be a coffee hour at the Lutheran Church one hour before the service for people who forget to turn their clocks forward." Pastor Liz delivers a sermon about the Third Commandment, high school students finish a few exams before spring break, Ronnie Detmer returns from California after 20 years, and Lillian Tollerud -- the savior of Lake Wobegon's post office -- passes away.
  • Saturday, February 28, 2015 5:00pm
    "It's been cold here, got down to 30-below wind chill here earlier in the week, starting to warm up a little bit now. They are forecasting more snow for Monday, Tuesday night." Corrine Tollerud returns from St. Olaf College for a weekend, the Hansens attempt to prevent their dog from being hit by cars, Lake Wobegon Lutheran Church holds its Lenten services, and Cindy Hedlund meets someone online after just a few months as a widow.
