It’s the first fall Friday of 2015, and the leaves are just beginning to change here in North Dakotaland. That means that we might start to enjoy some cool evenings and the sparkling dust of frost in the morning light. Good times except that it too quickly gives way to mind-wrenching cold temperatures and endless snow piles.
So enjoy the fall weather while it lasts, and enjoy this week’s quick hits and varia:
