Snow Day

Thanks everyone for sending us your snow shots. Had fun sharing some today. Be safe, be warm. More to likely come Thursday!

Hey VA! LIVE from Reston

What a beautiful February day. The weather was perfect, in the high 60’s. We went jacketless and loved seeing all the stores and coffee shops keep their doors wide open for customers. Another special treat.. my colleague Doug Kammerer decided to do his weather LIVE from Reston Town Center for all the news shows.

We popped by and Adora got a little air time and showed she clearly has a taste for broadcasting! Doug also mentioned how this is hometown turf for us. We both proudly attended Herndon High School. Doreen and Jim couldn’t help but take a jab at him. Check it out below!

Juneuary!

I cannot believe hot HOT is it outside right now! This  morning standing in the rain for live shots was worth this reward  in the air. I took baby A out to enjoy the finer things in life. Cupcakes and NO COAT! And how might you be spending your Juneuary?

 

 

Irene… I’m ready

Someone is leg’d and ready for Irene!

Irene messing up your weekend? We know that the rain or shine rule regarding the MLK Jr. Memorial Dedication is now out the door. The ceremony has been postponed indefinitely. In Maryland, Ocean City is under evacuation orders. Irene could hit the resort Saturday. In Virginia, the place I was headed for a little vaca called to say they’ll be closed this weekend.

MORE: Track the storm’s path

Tourists and travelers are being impacted all over. My husband’s flight from SC was cancelled Thursday, the airline saying because of the storm.  On the way home I saw a guy in the elevator carrying a bulk supply of water and adult beverages. As he struggled to hold it all up against the wall he exclaimed “I’m ready!”

On facebook,  my radio pal Tommy McFly who lives in DC posted this saying “Hurricane mania! Lines halfway down the aisles at the Social Safeway. Too much? I just wanted hummus.”

Then there is food writer Jordan Wright who has perhaps the most beautiful preparations I have ever heard of. She writes “Irene Storm Prep 101 – Jar of hibiscus flowers, anchovy stuffed olives, pickled ramps and fiddlehead ferns, bottle of Alaskan birch syrup and ten cans of coconut water – Rigaud candles and a fine Pomerol.”

 

Good Luck Lindsay!

Pink Painted bikini and big hearts Race for the Cure

The sun was shining and the pink was popping at the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in DC. There were so many inspirational stories. While hosting the pre-show I met awesome people like a guy who painted a pink bikini on him in name of his grandmother who has breast cancer. Andrea Roane shined as the Mistress of Ceremonies and the WUSA9 booth in Komen Village created a mob fest! So much fun! Thank you to all who came out!
