HI 50/ LO 32
Several years ago, I read Kathleen Norris’ book “Dakota: A Spiritual Geography.” I heard her speak at Baylor University in 2002, and promptly went out and read everything she’s ever written. But one of my favorite things in all her work was the “weather reports” she included in “Dakota.” These are short, date-specific reflections on the weather. They serve as commentary on the larger story.
For the foreseeable future, you will see a weather report in the top right-hand corner of this blog. Maybe just a high and low from the forecast, via my favorite weather app. Maybe a short description: “Thunderstorms likely.”
I’m not telling you where the weather information is coming from. I’m not telling you why I’m posting it. Just trust me.
This morning, it’s actually cooler here—35 degrees—than there—38 degrees. But we’ll warm up to 74. They’re expecting snow and rain showers overnight. Here, “a few passing clouds.”
