  • Friday! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone.  This week seemed to last forever.  I really think it’s weather related.  It’s been gray and cloudy all week.  But our weekend here looks spectacular – as it does for much of the eastern third of the country.  We’ve got a little storm that’s bringing a little bit of everything over the northern plains and then into the upper midwest tomorrow before fizzling out.  The west is going to remain active with a couple of Pacific storms heading in.   Southern California needs to keep a watchful eye this weekend with the threat for flooding and possible mudslide danger.  I think Sunday night should be fine for the hairdos and fancy Oscar dresses.  I love watching the Oscars every year, and I can’t wait to see Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin as hosts.  I have a soft spot for Steve Martin.  I think he’s just so hilarious.  The only person I have ever sent a fan letter to is Steve Martin.  I’ve read all of his books (Shopgirl, Pure Drivel,  and his brilliant memoir Born Standing Up)  And he’s a fantastic banjo player!  Love love love him. 

    My office-mate Jill is off to the Oscars this weekend, so watch for her on Fox in a beautiful gown  reporting live!   And she’ll be blogging too, so check back in here: http://onthescene.blogs.foxnews.com/author/jilldobson/

    Have any of you seen some of the Oscar nominated movies?   Any you loved?  Hated?   I don’t think I’ve seen ANY of them!    My husband and I saw our last movie in the theater before Matthew was born, and I think it was The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons (which I remember I bawled my eyes out through the whole movie!)

    I know a lot of you have been asking for Matthew pics, and I admit I’ve been so busy lately that there just hasn’t been a lot of time to get new ones up.   We’re still unpacking at the new house, and I’m hoping we can get a few pictures up on the wall one of these days!

    I hope you all have a great weekend!  Enjoy the early spring weekend if you live in the northeast!

  • Hump Day!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hey everyone!  Well, as much as I enjoy snow, I’m about ready for some springtime.  The forecast this weekend for the eastern half of the country looks pretty dandy.   It’s the west that’s going to get socked with a few storms over the next few days.    There were some pretty impressive snow totals out of Georgia and the Carolinas yesterday especially in the mountains.  Hundreds of flights were cancelled out of Atlanta due to snow and ice.  It’s time we get some sunshine and temperatures above the freezing mark!

    The west is going to remain active heading into the weekend with rain along the coast and snow in the mountains.

    And in the “Believe it or not file”  I read yesterday that the massive Earthquake in Chile over the weekend may have shifted the earth’s axis, and shortened the length of day!  You can read the whole story here:

    I’m off to get lunch.  It feels like a “hot soup day!” :)
