  • And now, a check on the weather...

    Hi everyone!

    Ok so my Freddy marketing blitz is coming to an end.  Thank you all for allowing me to post all things Freddy for the last few weeks.   The book has done so well, and I’m so excited that teachers are bringing Freddy into classrooms to help students prepare for upcoming weather events!

    So, things have been relatively quiet over the last few weeks, but we’re starting to see the potential for severe weather over the next few days…there’s a system moving across the Plains bringing scattered strong storms to the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest.  Large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes are possible.

    Here’s a look at Thursday’s threat:

    The heat is on still from the South into the Mississippi River Valley with afternoon highs 5-15 warmer than average.

    And incredibly, the tropics are quiet.  It’s unbelievable that we’ve made it through the peak season with hardly anything to report in the Atlantic basin!  I like it.

    I’m in on Friday for Fox and Friends, so tune in and say Hi if you’re up and at em early!

    Hey everyone!

    Incase you missed it, Freddy was in Primetime Friday night with my friend Megyn Kelly!  It was a frog-tastic interview!

  • OPEN BLOG!

    Hi everyone

    Sorry for letting the blog go over the last few days.  Freddy has taken up a lot of my time.  But things are settling down now.  I promise to be back at it this weekend…

    By the way, Freddy will be making his Prime Time debut on the Kelly File Friday night, so hope you’ll tune in!

    Hi everyone!

    I’ve been on a Freddy the Frogcaster and the Big Blizzard campaign this past week!  My amazing friends at Fox (both at the FNC and our Fox affiliates) have been so generous helping me spread the word about Freddy.

    Bret Baier was one of the first people to read my second book, and wrote a beautiful review of it on the back of the book:

    And he sent me this picture of him reading Freddy to his boys Paul and Daniel this weekend.  I have to tell you, I teared up!

    Aren’t they all so handsome?

    Had to share!

    Have a great rest of your weekend.

  • "Weather Ready Freddy" is sweeping the Nation!

    Hi everyone!

    I just wanted to check in and say hello.   It’s been so much fun “hopping” around town bringing Freddy the Frogcaster and the Big Blizzard to all my friends in television and radio!   Here’s a a few pictures of some folks you may recognize reading Freddy!  ;)

    Thanks to all of YOU for your support!
