Happy Thursday everyone!

Good news for snow lovers... we're getting more snow today! Larry says it should arrive this afternoon. Get ready!

It's below freezing out there again... and we had Joni Shriver in for Edgar on the AM show - and she had some great advice for preventing frozen pipes at your house! It's important to open your cabinets, let the water slowly drip, etc. Check out our story online. In this economy - no one needs a surprise like that. It can cost thousands of dollars to repair frozen pipes. My house is old, so I need to pay attention...

So, listen to this. TWO guys who work on our crew in the AM, ride their bikes to work. I'm serious. They do! Rain or shine, freezing temperatures... you name it. Russ (one of them) wears snow pants on his ride. I guess that's what you have to do! It keeps them in good shape year round - and saves on GAS. Pretty smart. I don't think I could pull it off... can you imagine? By the way, Russ is a man of many talents... he also helped me fix my high heel shoe with crazy glue this morning! My sole was coming off, probably because I wear them out in the snow. What a man! They are good as new.

Larry was live today talking about the Great Polar Bear Challenge coming up on New Year's Day. This is a wonderful opportunity to donate to Make-a-Wish... and in return Larry will plunge into freezing cold Lucky Peak! You can do it too, if you dare. For more information, check out "Where is Larry" on the website today. Larry usually raises a ton of cash for wishes, I know he'll do it again this year with your help! I am too chicken to take the plunge and Larry knows it, but I will donate to his cause! It's such a wonderful organization. Larry has a really big heart.

Another cool thing going on... two Meridian women (sisters) are featured on the new season of Biggest Loser! It starts in January, so we'll all have to tune in and cheer them on. :) They have been on the Biggest Loser Campus since Sept, so you know they are already looking awesome! One question we had this morning - how in the world do people pay the bills at home when they are participating on the show? They can't work, so it makes me wonder! Does the show pay the mortgages for these contestants? Does anyone out there in the blogosphere know?

And one more thing, Brundage Mountain opens this Saturday at 9:30am! YAY!

Have a great day, and stay safe on the roads this afternoon!
