"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.

"It's Thanksgiving this week and the exiles up from the cities for the traditional Thanksgiving, whatever that may mean nowadays. And then on Thursday, this ice storm hit and the roads became slick and slippery." Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility hosts the town's joint Thanksgiving service, women gather at the Bon Marche Beauty Salon, and Clint Bunsen puts up his Christmas lights.
The world has taken a turn towards the cold. The sun comes out but it's not warm anymore -- we've taken the big turn towards fall. People are wearing hats in Lake Wobegon. People are turning on their furnaces.
