  • Snow-vember totals and Shannon's beautiful mom Marie!

    Good morning everyone!

    The Midwest got a big taste of winter this weekend with some spots getting the most snow for the month of November in decades!  Take a look at these totals:

    Thankfully, the Midwest gets a bit of a break today, but a new storm from the West will spread eastward over the next few days.   We won’t see crazy snow though like we saw on Saturday and Sunday.

    Meanwhile, a system developing across the Gulf of Mexico is spreading some impressive (and much needed rain) over the Deep South and Southeast.  1-4 inches of rain will soak the area depending on where you live:

    This storm is eventually going to move into the Mid Atlantic and the Northeast this week bringing mainly rain, but some snow on the backside.  Once this system moves through, we should have another nice stretch of good weather.

    Meanwhile, the West is seeing several storms move through over the next few days.  More specifically the Northwest and into the Rockies.  The southwest, by contrast will be warm and dry with above average temperatures.

    And this morning I got to meet Shannon Bream’s lovely Mom Marie!  Shannon is filling in for Megyn this week, and her Mom is here visiting NYC.  (I wish I could’ve given her a better forecast today and tomorrow for sightseeing!)   I was thrilled to have a few minutes with Mom and her daughter.   If you’ve ever wondered if Shannon is just as nice as she seems on TV, take it from me – she’s one of the sweetest ladies I’ve ever met, and now that I’ve met her Mom, I know where she gets her good-looks and loveliness!  :)

    Here’s a picture of Shannon and Marie (don’t they look like sisters?) 

    Have a great day everyone!

Hey Janice, great picture of Shannon & her mom! I'm glad to hear that Shannon is as sweet in "real life" as she is on air. Hey to everyone else out there! For all those wondering about Don--I talked to him on Friday evening (for over an hour!) & he was having a good day without hardly any pain. He has his good days & bad days but he was feeling good Friday. He got to see Rolex & he got plenty of doggie kisses so that was great. I'll keep you posted when I hear from him again. Margie

Good Monday folks, Shannon is so pretty and she would have to be as sweet as she seems, Fox picks their folks like Disney picks their kids, the best looking and the nicest, down to earth folks and that is why we can never get enough hearing about them and their families. Like BG wondering how Don is fairing lately and pray for all our bloggers who have sadness lately. I'm trying to help Sammy's Mom (my granddog)get rid of kitties someone droped off at the dogpark, so adorable. AJ

Good afternoon everyone. Thanks for the pic. Janice. Yes, I agree with you. I saw Shannon when she first starting working at Fox. Glad to hear she is as nice in person as on TV. I think she takes up after you. Have'nt heard about Don lately. Hope he is doing better as I continue to keep him in our prayers. Hope everyone else is having a good monday. BG.
