THE COLD WIND BLOWS!!

RELAXIN' AND WAITIN'.

Hey folks!  You’ve probably noticed by now that we’re off the air this morning.  Well, we’re not the only ones!  There are over 10 stations in our market that are off the air due to the high winds and power outages caused by those conditions this morning.  It’s all part of the fun moving across the region today.  High winds, rain, possible damaging hail.  Pure fall joy!

Of course, when we can’t do the show…bad things usually end up happening to one or both of us!  So, for the time being, just like our little friend here, we’re just hangin’ out keepin’ our nuts warm ’til we’re back on the air.   Stay tuned for more!

Here’s what the National Weather Service office in Negaunee says:
