Wednesday Forecast/Winter Storm Watch/Ike Damage

Still seeing that area of disturbed weather in the western Caribbean...nothing new to report. Hope it doesn't bring too much rain to Honduras, Belize, Guatemala.

The strongest cold front so far this fall is on its way. Will arrive around midnight tomorrow (Wednesday) night. Here's a big news flash--A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for portions of Nebraska. There could be some snow and slippery roads from Wednesday morning until Thursday morning. It will be chilly and wet across the nation's midsection.

In Houston, it will be more humid as the front approaches. Look for a few showers during the day and a line of storms Wednesday night into early Thursday morning. Then most of Thursday should be dry. Thursday night into Friday morning, most of the area will drop into the 40s. Brrrrr!!! Weekend is looking spectacular. Halloween will be breezy and mild.

Since we are talking about the first snow of the season for Nebraska, let's do snow or nieve, pronounced knee-AY-vay. Just thinking about nieve makes me shiver.

Everywhere I go people ask me how I like just taking it easy. Well of course, I tell them I have been a busy little bee making Volume 1 of Let's Learn Spanish with Frank and Paco. Of course, I never fail to mention that it is a Dr. Toy Top 10 Educational Product for 2008. Because it is so beneficial to cognitive development, you can feel good about giving this DVD as a gift to your favorite youngters. So, order today from www.frankandpaco.com, www.venturaes.com, www.dololanguages.com, www.carlexonline.com,www.thecuriousmindstore.com, www.amazon.com, www.bestbuy.com, and www.barnesandnoble.com.

We didn't make it to David Wallace's big book signing last night, but I did talk to David's executive assistant. The release party for "One Nation Under Blog" was quite a big success and fun! I can't wait to read this book!

Had a nice long chat with Greg Bostwick of KFDM in Beaumont. Greg, another Aggie, helped get me hired for my first TV gig. KFDM, the CBS station in Beaumont was a wonderful place to work. Greg taught me a lot. He said he has been there now for 30 years!!! I had called to see how he came through the hurricane. Ike damaged his home in Winnie, picking up part of his greenhouse and slamming it through the roof. Greg said they've had plenty of storms--NO MORE!!! Rita and last year's Humberto also brought them high wind. But Greg thinks the winds with Ike easily hit 100 mph. The good news is that he and his family are safe.

Don't forget to participate in our blog--are you voting early, yes or no.

Happy Wednesday everyone!
