Hello all!

Did you notice how nice and dry and SAFE the roads were this morning? It was such a nice change from driving in the snow and rain. Especially at 4am. Nothing like coming out of my house and not having to scrape my windshield or warm up the car. Love it! Yes, we have a garage but it's stuffed full of junk. Isn't that what the garage is for?

Today we're looking at more dry conditions - which is fantastic for those of you going to the Roady's Humanitarian Bowl game... but tomorrow the rain/snow comes back. The big game starts at 2:30, it's on ESPN. We have a pre-game show at 2pm right here on 7. Larry was live out there at the stadium this morning. He told us tickets are still available if you'd like to go... and there are still prime tailgating spots in the main parking lot too! For a price, of course. The downtown shuttle is also operating.

Two news stories we are keeping an eye on right now - a local couple is missing. This couple was expected in Atlanta last night and never showed up. A search is on... will have the latest throughout the day. I am hoping for the best.

Also, a man was pulled over last night on 30th and Fairview - and he had what looked like a military tank round on the floor of his truck! That can't be a good thing. The bomb squad was called in - turned out it wasn't live. Phew!

Sad news about MPC Computers. Another 150 people laid off yesterday. 50 more will lose jobs too. It's hard to believe the Humanitarian Bowl used to be the MPC Computers Bowl. Remember that? My, how times have changed. I hope all the people laid off at Micron, HP, and now MPC etc. are able to find work. Jobs are in short supply right now.

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve and you know what that means... time to make those resolutions we all make every year! I have a few of my own that I'll share with you. I just have to think of them first. :)

Log on tomorrow!
