Hi all.  Sorry for the delay.  This week has gotten away from me.  A lot going on.

First off, prayers to our friend Don who I hope is doing a little better.    It’s been a tough last few months for him.  We’re thinking of you buddy.

The big weather story is the extreme cold.    A big arctic blast has settled in across the Midwest, the Great Lakes and into the Northeast. 



Temperatures will warm up a bit this weekend, but by the end of next week, we will be back into the freezer.  Don’t put those winter gloves/hats scarves away yet.  We still have  lot of winter go go. 

Wind Chill Warnings and Advisories remain in effect from the Great Lakes to Pennsylvania and into New England as prolonged exposure to wind and temperatures remains dangerous, especially during overnight hours.



Lake-effect snow continues downwind of the Great Lakes.  Totals off Lakes Erie and Ontario are already over 2 feet in some locations.

We’re watching another system that will bring snow to the Midwest and Ohio Valley Thursday-Friday before moving toward the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Friday afternoon and early Saturday.  It’s still unclear how organized this system will be once it reaches the East Coast, but for now it appears that at least several inches of snow will be possible so stay tuned!


Meanwhile, across the West and the South it has been quite nice.  So we’re all jealous!  LOL!  This was me earlier today reporting outside.  As you can see, fashion goes out the window when it comes to reporting in single digit windchills!  Thanks to Meredith White and Bailey Melton for taking the picture!  They came all the way from Mississippi to see us!


Be warm everyone!  Talk to you tomorrow!
