Some of the highlights of an action packed Thursday…Thanks Mother Nature! Click the link above to listen back.
Former Democratic Vice President Walter Mondale made his first public appearance in seven weeks Tuesday.

The liberal former Vice President is teaming up with one of the most conservative Republican members of Congress, James Sensebrenner of Wisconsin.
Vice President Joe Biden is visiting a Minneapolis coffee shop, where he met with a handful of women who got insurance under the federal health care law.
Vice President Joe Biden is headed to Minnesota for a fundraiser for the national Democratic Party. Biden is due at a Democratic National Committee event in Minneapolis on Feb. 19, a DNC official said Wednesday. The White House also confirmed that Biden would be in Minnesota that day. The fundraising trip was first reported by the Minneapolis Star Tribune. An invitation obtained by the newspaper seeks contributions of up to $32,400. The fundraiser is being held at the Minneapolis restaurant owned by Gov. Mark Dayton’s sons.
Joan Mondale, the wife of former Vice President Walter Mondale, has died. Officials at Westminster Presbyterian Church said she died Monday afternoon. She was 83.

He was a philanthropist and long-time state senator — Sunday morning people are remembering George Pillsbury.
Mitt Romney’s apprentice salesman stepped on the stage last night and delivered his talking points, but little more. Throughout the night, Joe Biden delivered lesson after lesson to the ambitious young Congressman from Wisconsin.
Both candidates did what they had set out to do. Biden reached out to his base, and Ryan spoke to those who don’t like the direction the country is headed. Republicans are likely not happy that Ryan didn’t deliver the knock-out debate Mitt Romney did a week ago while Democrats are, as previously stated, ecstatic Biden didn’t have a bad night.
The wife of Vice President Joe Biden knows very well what life is like on a community college campus, and she seemed to feel right at home at North Hennepin Community College.
Vice President Joe Biden was back campaigning in Wisconsin on Thursday. The Vice President spoke to an enthusiastic crowd at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire this morning. It was his second visit to the state this month.
While Paul Ryan is entitled to his own opinions, he is not entitled to his own facts. He lied to America about Medicare. He lied to America about the debt commission. He really lied to America about the stimulus and America’s debt rating.
