Are you ready for "Frigid Monday"

Friday, Jan, 3 2014

What?
Now the high temp for Monday has been lowered again?

The high temp Monday will now, they say, be 14 below zero.

How does anything even function under those conditions?

I'd certainly prefer not to.

Lets hope our hearts are at least being warmed in the afterglow of a Packers' playoff victory that day anyway.

One thing about this frigid freak fest is the fact that there has been plenty of warning about it from our meteorologist friends. So it won't take us by surprise. Still, there are things you can do to protect yourself, your home and your vehicles in these extreme conditions. Be prepared and perhaps you help avoid disaster on Monday.

So today on the PhilCast we will open up the show with a couple of interviews with experts giving us advice on what (and what not) to do in preparation for the big freeze. Tips to get your house and your vehicle through this with as little damage as possible.

"The Bet" settled

Wednesday, Jan, 1 2014

Paid a visit to the Post-Crescent HQ on New Year's Eve to pay up on my bet with Dan "Ice Cream" Kohn.

He got his chocolate ice cream for winning (by one week only!) the PhilCast NFL picks challenge.

Congrats Dan...hope you enjoyed the ice cream.

GO PACK!

PACK YAK

Monday at 3:00

Are you kidding me?

And I thought the Dallas game would be the most memorable of this crazy season.

Another bicyclist hit

Thursday, Dec, 26 2013

Seems I can't get away from working. One quick stop on Twitter on my day off and boom there it is. When I return to the air on Friday you can be sure I'll have plenty to say about the Christmas Eve hit and run involving a bicyclist in Menasha.

And what I've got to say, as an avid cyclist, may surprise you. This stuff makes my blood boil and I'll be ready to go on Friday.

Meantime, time for me to spend Thursday in my old neighborhood stocking up on authentic Italian from our favorite Italian Deli....gotta bring back up a cooler full. That's after fighting crowds at Brookfield Square where Mrs. Biggest Name wants to go also.

My reward at the end of the day will be a quiet night by the fire with a little somethin-somethin to sip on before making the drive back up to the Valley Friday morning.
Talk to you then.

Merry, Merry!
I guess it's pretty clear how I became a 'dog guy'.
