    "We had about 15 minutes of spring this year, kind of typical in Minnesota, and then it turned into summer all of a sudden." The town avoids Senator K. Thorvaldson and his boring rhubarb stories, and when Sally Emmett gets married after graduating from Macalester College, everyone is mystified by the groom's Californian parents -- a monologue from June 2002.

    "We've gotten some snow, even better than that, we've gotten frost -- frost, when you have a clear night and you have high humidity, you wake up in the morning and everything is covered with frost." A terrible flu hits Lake Wobegon, memories of ice skating and smoking in the warming house, storytelling around a bonfire on a frozen lake, and the Lutheran church ends the year with a surplus, in a monologue from January 2013.

    "It's been this gorgeous, gorgeous September, this beautiful time--so much happening." Lake Wobegon welcomes the arrival of fall, a bear surprises Irene Bunsen, then stays in town, starting a debate over who will pay to have it removed, and high school students take the ACT exam, in a monologue from September 2013.
