Whether to cover the Weather

First of all, what happened to November? It's all but gone and we've still got Halloween candy around the house. Although it is still several weeks until Christmas, all the decorations and shopping stories make me feel like I'm way behind already. Which come to think of it I guess I am. Our youngest wants to ask Santa for a pig. Yes, a real one. Second choice is a pair of shoes like the Elves wear that curl up at the toe. Not easy, but better than the pig for sure. I think I'd better tune in for the holiday stress-busting story tonight at 11.

This is of course the time of year when the weather often demands our attention. But it's usually a hard call. The weather types predict "possible" ice in the morning. Possible being the important term there. Like today, our reporters came in well before dawn just in case. Live shots are set up in problem areas and the focus is on keeping folks informed about the morning commute. There were plenty of problems early, then it warmed up. So everyone regroups and moves on to other news. It takes a great deal of effort and energy for a story that was over by seven, but we have to be prepared just in case. And it looks like the next "just in case" will come later this week. We will keep you posted.

As always...thanks for watching!
