November is National Adoption month - celebrated by national, state and local agencies as well as foster care and adoptive family groups.  The goal is to raise awareness of the need for permanency for the children and youth in our country in foster care and waiting for families. 

Go to MN Adopt for information   or North Homes.

Mikki Anderson is the mother of 7 and joined us to talk about how adoption works. 

What's For Breakfast? is a favorite feature of the Friday Morning Show.  This morning Heidi and John spoke with 12 year old Evelyn from Bemidji.  Evelyn shared a story of lending a helping hand after she saw an actual hand sticking out from behind a car yesterday.  Her tale is a reminder to all of us to stop and help when we see others in trouble.  Thanks Evelyn for sharing your story and your morning with us!

Tuesday mornings are special around here. We hear phenology from students and listeners from all across northern MN.  We also get the special treat of the weekly phenology report from our favorite nature reporter John Latimer.  For 33 years John Latimer has been documenting the subtle and not so subtle changes in the environment on The Phenology Show.

Winter Storm Warning in effect across the entire region - expected to last until 6pm this evening in NW MN - until midgnight in Itasca/Cass/Crow Wing counties and until 6am in NE MN - St. Louis Counties.

Heavy snow falling up 1 inch per hour - snow and ice covered roads and visibility less than a quarter mile.  Exercise caution if you must travel - and definitely allow extra time if you MUST travel.

Temps in the low to mid 30s and blowing snow up to 45 mph possible.

Have a snow day!  Be careful out there!
