It's Powder Puff Derby Time & Time for March Madness!

Are you ready for March? The actual snowfall for February will go down as 17.6" of snow! It was our second snowiest February on record. Only last February ranks higher because of the great blizzard with 17" of snow. We ended up with 26.4 inches of snow for the month! So the last two Februarys have totaled 44 inches of snow. This will likely not happen again in our lifetime. You can blame a wild La Nina pattern that shows no signs of slowing down as we head into March. We are not done with the wild ups and downs and snow just yet! But let's get to some good news!

March should come in like a lamb. A couple models have highs possibly in the 60s by the weekend, but I will be conservative and go with highs in the middle 50s. Jeff Smith will certainly lose our friendly bet. He will have to wash my car if the actual high on Sunday in Lafayette hits 50 or above! I upped the ante by going for highs in the middle 50s, hopefully that will not come back to haunt me.

It is a big night at Mayflower Mill. The Powder Puff Derby night begins after my 6 p.m. weathercast. Girl Scout Pack 123 headed by Lisa Rhine will be having quite the race! I tried to talk my daughter Megan into having a tornado shaped car and she went with a high-heeled shoe. Oh well, I got over it. She showed lots of creativity with all of its sequins. I do not take credit for any of the sequins as my girls showed their creativity. Take a look below!

Megan Prangley's car: Voted most feminine

Judge's Favorite Car: Katy Paugh's Police Car

Your Top 5 Times (Danica Patrick eat your heart out)

Here are all the winners from the race! I will post their names and times. I am still re-doing this weather blog so hang in there girls! It was a great way to celebrate leap year!

It is also a good reminder to fasten our seatbelts in March. The La Nina which has played havoc with us is showing no signs of relenting and we may have our strongest La Nina on record in March. When you combine this with building warm air to the south and west, look out! Texas may feel more like summer with a building drought while their is plenty of cold air remaining in Canada and the Pacific Northwest. These two features willl be forced to collide with the mother of all jet streams throughout much of March. What does this mean? We cannot rule out another Super Storm like we saw back in 1993.

I remember March 13, 1993 like it was yesterday. I was working at WTLV-TV 12 in Jacksonville and we had 76 mph gusts and my glasses almost blew off the roof when I was doing observations. We had severe thunderstorms bring a storm surge to Cedar Key and within 12 hours most of North Florida had snow flurries. I share this story with you because I am expecting plenty of March Madness and will post our March forecast for you here tonight and on the air. February did go down as our stormiest on record with over 6 inches of liquid precipitation. I am checking into the T-Shirts, don't worry. If you have ideas send them to and we will go from there! See you soon and make sure to check back! I ran 7 miles today so I am certainly gearing up for March!!
Also remember that Dog N Suds opens tomorrow! It is always a great way to celebrate meteorological Spring in Lafayette. See you there.

Here is your March Outlook. Do not let our warm start fool you. We have plenty of cold air in Canada that will ride our way. Even though it will be cooler than average we will have plenty of days of 60 or above and it will be much easier to take than February. Just beware of one big super storm by the middle of the month.

I just moved to IN (from the west coast) in 2005, so I do not even know about spring of '93. I think it would interesting to learn more about this.

All I know is - this is my 3rd winter ('05-'06, '06-'07 and '07 - '08) and this winter has been the craziest (weather wise) of all 3 I have lived through. I guess I was a bit spoiled during my first 2 winters in IN.

Thanks for the interesting blog and, when you get a chance, fill us in about '93.

Greeting for the day!!

I just joined this good place. Loads of people have added so many good things here. Please accept my little contribution towards community. I would like to share some [url=]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you need to know how to lose 10 lbs in a calendar week, you are likely not searching for a standard diet and workout plan. You can lose weight with a standard diet and exercise plan, However this takes a lot of time doing intense cardio workouts and following a strict diet. Here I will outline the exact steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a calendar week.

1. Keep Distance from all fried foods for the week
2. Drink an 8oz glass of Citrus paradisi with breakfast each day. (this speeds up your metabolism)
3. Take average portions (stop consuming when you are full)
4. Rather than taking 3 large a meals a day, take 5-6 small meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Aviod your habbit of eating after 9 P.M.. When you eat that late your body does not burn off the calories.
6. Take proper sleep every night. Not having enough sleep has been proved to be a leading factor to the body storing excess fat.
7. Use a body/colon clean for the 7 days. This will get rid of excess weight stored around the stomach area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that cause you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I reccomend you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is proven to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those man's/womans who desire to burn fat quickly, avoid alcoholic drink.
10[url=].[/url] A low GI diet is an brilliant method of burning fat quickly.

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
