The moon's going through an awkward phase.

It's gibbous right now, something Italian speakers know means convex on both edges, and fans of Stephen King know means scary and something awful is going to happen.

Actually, despite the weekend forecast, Northland Morning listeners have something to look foward to:  Astro Bob will be our guest Thursday morning for MN Reads, and he just might have some signed copies of his new book available!
