It’s been chilly, but then we expected it would be. It’s been clear sunny days, cold, clear nights. You can look up and see the stars up there.
Lake Wobegon celebrates Thanksgiving by sharing a few stories from years past, the Tollefsons prepare a turkey using their grandmother’s recipe, and Pastor Liz’s boyfriend attends a service at the Lutheran Church.
It was the most beautiful snowfall in yesterday morning in Lake Wobegon. It was just gorgeous, it was like something out of a children’s book.
The town pledges for the annual “Big Plunge” fundraising event, Lake Wobegon High School students learn about owls, and a local English teacher makes an enriching discovery while walking in the woods, in a monologue from February 2013.

Fred contemplates giving up furnace repair and moving to Texas, Lake Wobegon Lutheran Church prepares for its lutefisk dinner, Myron has knee replacement surgery, and Pastor Liz receives a strange call for help in the middle of the night.
