  • Freddy goes on the road to Alexandria, Virginia!

    Happy Friday, friends!

    Wanted to share some pictures of my adventures yesterday in Alexandria, Virginia!  I visited Immanuel Lutheran School and read Freddy the Frogcaster and the Big Blizzard to the AMAZING children and staff who made me feel right at home.

    We then hopped across the river and went into D.C. to see my friend Jennifer Wishon of CBN News.  That was such great fun also.

    There was  plenty to talk about especially with all of this cold weather and snow in the forecast!

    I’ll post a full forecast update shortly.  Have a great weekend everyone!

  • Here's your "snuggle up forecast!"

    Here comes the “Brrrrrrrrrrr” and some big snow for parts of the Northern Plains, Upper Midwest!  Stay warm everyone…

  • Shhhhhhhh! Don't tell Shannon Bream...

    I can just see Shannon Bream now when I deliver the bad news on America’s News Headquarters tomorrow:

    Next week much of the country will get a big taste of winter in terms of temperatures.  And some folks across the Northern Plains and Midwest need to be “shovel ready!”

    Here’s the deal.    We’ve got an incredibly strong extra tropical system bringing hurricane force winds and 50 foot waves across the Bering Sea.

    This was once a Super Typhoon called Nuri.  It’s now “extra tropical” (having lost all of its warm core tropical characteristics) and will influence our jet stream next week pushing VERY cold air from the Arctic down as far south as Texas.

    Records will be broken with temperatures 20-40 degrees below what they should be this time of year.

    Snow will also fall along the leading edge of this cold air Sunday into Monday.

    A narrow band of 6-12″ is possible from Montana through the Northern Plains into the Upper Midwest.

    It should be mentioned that Florida, the Southwest and California will escape the polar plunge this time around!

    I broke down and brought up all our winter clothes from the basement this morning.   I just hope its not a harbinger of things to come…

    A picture says a thousand words…and they all mean COLD (if you live across two thirds of the country!)
