A friend of mine informed me of this story today on NPR. Tom Whiting, the famous hackle herder was interviewed for the story.  You can listen to the story by clicking the button on the link page.


On a side note, most of Pierce County was missed by the rain yesterday. The streams are fine. The southeast of Minnesota received some heavy rains though. Check the Minnesota DNR links on the blogroll for the latest conditions. Rain was variable.
