Travel Weather/Meteor Shower

Snow will continue to be a problem across the northern Rockies and the Great Lakes and New England on Thursday (New Year's Day). The coldest spot will be northern Maine with highs in the single digits. The northern plains will be in the teens. Highs will be in the 60s and 70s across the southern tier of states.

Meanwhile, Houston will start in the 40s and end in the 60s. A few showers are possible. Friday will be warmer with highs in the 70s. Look for thunderstorms on Saturday.

As 2008 ends, we are reminded that time keeps going by. So, let's do time or tiempo, pronounced tee-EHM-poh. It is tiempo for a new year--2009.

It's a new year and the perfect time to resolve to learn languages and to help your children learn languages--then they will enjoy improvements in memory, higher scores on standardized math and science tests, accurate pronunciation, and enhanced cognitive development. A great way is with our DVD for children, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco, winner of two prestigious educational awards. So, order it now--from our web site You can also order from,,,,,, and If you are more interested in a full immersion type product, go to

With a new moon approaching, the timing could not be better for a special meteor shower on Saturday morning, January 3rd. The view will be especially good for folks in western North America where observers could see as many as 1 to 2 meteors per minute in the predawn sky. This is the expected peak of the Quadrantids.

Nothing like looking forward to another spectacular display in the sky after New Year's Eve fireworks. Happy New Year everyone!
