Thanksgiving Memories

We are only a week away from Thanksgiving now. Having just weathered the first statewide winter storm this morning, I’ll look ahead to see what the cards hold for our upcoming holiday. Plus, I go “unplugged” tonight by taking my portable audio recorder around the FOX 8 newsroom to ask some of my colleagues to share their all-time favorite Thanksgiving memory.

I’d also like to hear from you! What is your fondest Thanksgiving memory? Use the Anchor.fm app to send me an audio message, or send me an email (weatherjazz@yahoo.com) or leave a comment on the WeatherJazz.com episode entry (comments).

A New Comet

November is taking us deeper and deeper into the cold when you compare the numbers to what we should be seeing, but you might be surprised with one of the “winter stats” thus far. Join me as we dig into the numbers for the first 13 days of November. I’ll also tell you about a newly discovered comet heading toward our sun. It was not discovered by a professional astronomer, but three amateur backyard astronomers. What should we expect? Drop in and find out on tonight’s episode of WeatherJazz┬«!

Is Daylight Saving Time Dead?

Our bi-annual exercise of jerking around our body clocks in the spring and fall just occurred. At least in November, we “gain” an hour of sleep, right? Question: Has Daylight Saving Time outlived its usefulness? You may be surprised in learning that the EU just voted to do away with Daylight Saving Time. Arizona and Hawaii don’t observe it. Idaho recently voted on it. In this episode, I explore the practice of moving our clocks twice a year.
