Show the Parade Already!

At 9 AM, WFSB - Channel 3 - the local CBS affiliate and WVIT - Channel 30 - the local ABC affiliate began broadcasting the NYC Thanksgiving Day Parade in name only.

I have been switching between the two broadcasts for 45 minutes and I have seen about 2 minutes of the actual parade. The rest of the time has been filled with acts from Broadway shows and commercials for junk to buy for Christmas.

Show the parade already!!!

White Stuff

It snowed this morning, which represents the first frozen precipitation of the season. There was no accumulation, but in my opinion, it is too early for the white stuff to start falling from the sky.

First Freeze

Overnight, we had our first freeze of the fall-winter 2010-2011 season when the temperature got down to 31°F around 4 AM (November 1). It is the first time in a long time around here that the temperature did not get down to freezing once during October.
