I’m pretty sure the greatest writer ever to pass through the hallowed halls of Minnesota Public Radio is Leif Enger, who actually toiled from his Aitkin-area home as part of MPR’s Mainstreet project.
So it’s no surprise at all that he has coined the perfect name for the winter we’re having: “the khaki season.”
It’s also not surprising he found a way to enliven it, with this short video he posted today.
