How can you forget that one Halloween in your life which came with two feet of snow? Marylander Britt Aamodt was studying biology at Gustavus Adolphus College when a record snowstorm blasted its way into her life.

The Whether Diaries from Radio Netherlands and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation
Two women on opposite sides of the world keep audio diaries over the course of a single week. One in Amsterdam mentally preparing for the cold gloom of Holland's approaching winter, the other bracing for the extreme heat of an Australian summer in Sydney. In a world where information and people are highly mobile, how do place and landscape ground our wandering wondering thoughts? The local weather shapes their days, moods, and states of mind. We'll hear their intimate "what if" questions, regrets, and reflections. Written, performed, and produced by Dheera Sujan and Sherre Delys with sound engineering from Russell Stapleton.
