It traditionally doesn't snow all that much in January, just like it sometimes doesn't rain all that much in July. That is considered to be what's normal, if you can call anything about the weather normal nowadays. So far this month (and year), what...

Media outlets are releasing “best of” lists for the decade. Is 2020 really the end of the previous decade or the beginning of the next? Americans are probably as split on that question as they are politcally. A case can be made either way, if...

Apparently more and more people are deciding to stay at home during the Thanksgiving week and give their kitchen utensils a much needed workout. Just be careful though. And traveling might be more of an issue this year anyway because of winter...

After today, Wednesday, Nov. 20, the rest of the work week and even into the weekend, our area weather is forecast to be quite decent for this time of the year. And that is especially timely for the Ipswich Commercial Club's Turkey Days drawings at...

It seems like during a somewhat wet year there are more tree leaves than ever and even trees that were slowly getting to be half dead got a temporary reprieve this summer. There are various methods of collecting the leaves, starting with the old...

Congratulations to the cross country runners at the State B in Huron on Saturday. It turned out to be quite a decent day and the calm before the storm. From then on it's felt more like November or even December, but on the plus side it didn't...

There's a first time for everything, they say. And now this is true of the Northern State University Gypsy Day parade. That's right the parade was wisely canceled because of the winter storm that was persisting in the Aberdeen area well into Saturday...

I can't believe it! Apparently it has already become that time of the year for rapid and extreme weather changes, in transition from summer to winter. And I still too vividly recall all those late winter storms earlier this calendar year that lasted...

October, I can't believe it. Yes, it's the start of the holiday seasons especially if you wish to think of Halloween as a holiday of sorts. And the stores certainly do! We will also be ushering in pheasant hunters, which has become a holiday season...

This is homecoming week at IHS, so hopefully the weather will cooperate as well as it did for the earlier Edmunds Central homecoming festivities. That weather was awesome. But the advance forecast for Friday looks like we might actually slide by in...

One nice thing about Monday holidays is that they make the next Friday roll around a little faster and this week for sure, since it’s EC homecoming week. Congratulations to the royalty and good luck in all the activities the rest of this week....

Welcome to a new school year, because it's now here. Or if you'd still rather want to say that school is right around the corner, it's now a very sharp and short corner. Of course there'll be a little interruption of our area school schedules with...
