Big floods

Monday, Sep, 16 2013

We've had our issues with Mother Nature this summer, now it's sadly a tragic week in and around Denver, Colorado.  I was in the area for a family reunion this past weekend, and saw it in person.

Massive flooding from steady downpours quickly raised rivers to levels they haven't seen in decades, or even ever. Numerous dead, thousands of structures destroyed, hundreds still missing or cut off from the rest of the world due to communications out and roads gone.  One reporter overstated the devastation a bit by saying it was "biblical", but one could understand her comments once you witnessed it up close.

Good time to count our blessings.

Contests aplenty!

Thursday, Sep, 5 2013

Hey--two quick contests to keep an eye out for:

1.  Sign up and play the WHBY Football Pickem contest, where you can pick the Pro games every week and maybe win fabulous prizes--and compete against me, too!  It's up at whby.com right now...

And,

2. I will be starting a quick on-air contest on WHBY soon, where you could win a free round of golf for you and your spouse(or a friend) to Fox Valley Golf Club in Kaukauna!  Includes golf, cart for two and the Friday fish fry at the Fox for two as well!  And, you will be joining me and my wife Shelly for the golf and dinner!  I know, there's always a hitch, right?!!!  Keep listening for details.

Storm thoughts

Wednesday, Aug, 7 2013

Wow...that was a nasty storm.  Dave Miller from Storm Team 5 mentioned on the show that the storm was packing 60-90 mph winds and was moving at 70...yes, 70 mph!  Rarely do you see a storm flying through like that!  All the best to those that still have no power or have a considerable clean-up facing them.

My wife says the neighbor's lawn chairs, water bucket and various other things are in our yard.  Funny....she didn't mention if any OUR stuff went flying!
