Friday Varia and Quick Hits

Among the more consistent weather patterns on the Northern Plains is the seven-day rain cycle. In the spring and early summer, precipitation enters the Red River Valley on a regular rhythm. We have dry days on Monday through early Friday, but by Friday afternoon, clouds form. On Saturday and Sunday we have rain, which gives way to sunnier skies on Monday. This cycle repeats itself every seven days like clockwork much like late afternoon thunderstorms in the south or the annual appearance of the sirocco in southern Europe. 

Before some quick hits and varia, be sure to make some time to check out the most recent Caraheard podcast. Richard Rothaus and I chat with science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson. It’s epic and awesome.
