Was it really only last week we were bemoaning the end of Aut-win?

It's one of Larry's favorite seasons; that wonderful in-between-time when the leaves are off the trees and before the snow has fallen to stay.

First it seemed like the shortest Aut-win on record, like the snow was here for good.  But that was before a couple of record-breaking days in the 70s this week.

Stargazing without bugs, kiting spiderlings and more on this week's edition of Backyard Almanac!

She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
