Lightning Awareness Week: There’s Probably Something You Don’t Know

Workers in the field need to have the same awareness as kids at the pool, golfers on the links and cyclists on the open road, dads at the office and so on.

Brad Pitt May Save Your Life: Making a Case for Twitter

There’s another app you should have on your phone. The app you need, the app that may save your life, and the app that is on every phone of every celebrity, is Twitter. Yes, Twitter. If you’re over 45 or 50, I’ll wait until you can say Twitter without chuckling.

Facts Are Meaningless, Hurricanes Are Not

What about your favorite meteorologist? If the forecast calls for thunderstorms on Saturday, do you assume a twist or a spin or a misdirection of the facts? Is it hype to lure you to tune in again?

Hurricane Season? It’s Not Possible

If you’re like me, you are NOT ready for hurricane season. As I write this, there is snow on the ground in New York, New Hampshire, Maine, Michigan and Minnesota (as well as the usual higher elevations in the Rocky Mountains, of course). I haven’t yet flipped the home HVAC system from heat to cool […]

Dreaming of a white Christmas? You just might get your wish.

It’s (considered) the best time of the year when children and adults alike share in the wonderment of the season of giving. Sparkling lights glisten on giant Fir trees, while holiday crooners Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. play softly in the background. Tales of sugar plum fairies and The Night Before Christmas […]

One Year Later: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Superstorm Sandy

This time last year, millions of people along the East Coast were recovering from the destructive effects of one of the costliest storms in United States history – “Superstorm” Sandy. Considered the deadliest storm of the 2012 hurricane season, Sandy showed our country and economy just how susceptible we were to flooding, power outages and […]

Jack Frost Could Be Halloween’s New Villain

Halloween in America is a time to share our scariest, nail-biting tales or celebrate our favorite villains, such as the headless horseman, Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers and “Jason”. A new villain may also be among us this Halloween. He blows into town uninvited, freezing pipes, disrupting supply chains and wreaking havoc on everyone’s immune systems. […]
