    Hi guys.  It’s a cloudy Saturday here.  No sign of baby yet…but I am looking forward to the day when I can see my feet again!  LOL!

    Anyone watching the Superbowl?  Crazy weather in Dallas yesterday right?  Eeek.  Spring can’t come soon enough.

    Hope you’re all doing well, and Thanks for keeping the Blog alive!  :) JD

  • OFF TO LOST WAGES!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hello everyone

    Well, I’m off for an extra extra long weekend!  A couple of girlfriends and I are heading to Las Vegas tomorrow for the next few days.  Eeek!  It’s a birthday celebration for myself (which is next weekend) and my friend Karen who is coming in from Houston.  My best friend Neera from Ottawa is also meeting us there, so it will be the three amigos!   I’m going to miss my little Matthew terribly, but I know he’ll be fine with my hubby who has lots of help lined up!   I just hope he’ll forgive his mommy for leaving him for a few days. 

    I hope you all have a great weekend…will check back in next week with some G-rated pictures from the trip!  HAHA!

    Hi everyone. 

    Well,  I wanted to all let you know that the blog is now back on the “weather page” on foxnews.com.    So, from here on in, I’ll be posting on that page.  Here’s the link (you might already have it on your bookmarks)

    http://weather.blogs.foxnews.com/

    They’re going to be working on getting all of my previous posts back onto this site in the next few weeks, so bear with us.  And as for commenting, I think I’m going to have to “approve” your first comment before they can go through automatically, so I ask for your patience as we go forward. :)   I

    Thanks everyone!  The new blog is much improved, with lots of cool bells and whistles I’m trying to learn. 

    I appreciate your kindness, and patience.  You guys are the best.

  • Deadly storm finally exiting the northeast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    What a wild weekend of weather we had!  My neighborhood had flooding and tree limbs down while others weren’t as lucky – major damage to homes, business and there’s been several deaths attributed to this horrible storm.  Take a look at some of these rain totals:

    Hundreds of thousands of people are still without power, and airports along the east coast are seeing delays and cancellations.   Up to hurricane force at JFK!

    The good news is the storm is finally moving away from the area, and we’re in for a spectacular rest of the week with sunshine and warmer temperatures.  The rest of the country will be pretty quiet as well, which I am looking forward to!  The one area we’re going to keep an eye on is the northern plains and midwest.  Especially the Red River Valley which will get very close to record flood stage this weekend.

    Did everyone remember to “spring forward?”  It was really hard to get out of bed this morning – not only because of the time change, but Matthew was waking up almost every hour crying.  I think his back teeth are coming in, and it’s really bothering him.  Poor guy.  We did buy him a pair of shoes this weekend, and he had a great time in the store with all the action!  It was hard to get him out of the store as he was meeting so many friends.  It was funny to watch him try to figure out these new foot devices, but once he got the feel of his new kicks, he was walking up a storm.  The transition is pretty amazing.   My husband and I were exhausted chasing him around the house!

    Ok – that’s about it for now.  I need a pick-me-up pronto!   Me need coffee…and food…:)  It feels like a Monday!

    Talk to y’all later!
