Fifty percent chance here, Forty percent chance there. Another 30 percent for good measure. So far, this system hasn't produced the widespread major disaster some had feared, at least in Cape Girardeau and Jackson. In fact, so far our biggest public school districts haven't even canceled school. If you haven't already seen them, I wanted to direct your attention to some links we have in our weather area on our website. You can easily find links to radar and forecasts there, even information about earthquakes. By the way, some have asked who writes this blog. The answer is it's kind of a team blog. Today it's your friendly editor, Bob Miller. James Baughn is the ringleader of Weather or Not, but anyone in our newsroom has access to it. Mainly it was created for you to be able to have a place to talk about the weather. Sometimes our stories switch places several times a day.This blog is your chance to talk about today's winter weather that has sort-of-happened, but could happen again, either in a minor or major sort of way either today, tonight or tomorrow night. Or not.
Be careful out there.
