It’s the Friday before spring break here in North Dakotaland and we’re bracing for the massive influx of spring break revelers who will come to the Red River Valley to enjoy flat countryside, cold weather, and soggy snow.
To avoid the rush, I’ll be staying busy on the Wesley College Documentation Project, some college basketballing games on the old TV, some cricket (of course), and some books and writing that need to be attention. Plus, dogs.
If you have to go out into the mob of celebrating students, here are some quick hits and varia:
