It is kind of ironic it is Lightning Safety Week and this happens. For the first time in the more than 9 years I have been at WLFI we are not going to be able to do a scheduled weekly show. We were supposed to be on at 5 p.m. but the show has been canceled. The good news is that we are still on the air and that we will resume with our normal newscast schedule at 6 p.m. It is kind of cool how we are all rallying around one another making the most of this situation.My intern Kevin Burris picked a great day to come in to work and has been a huge help getting our Precison 18 working again. Everybody here has done a fabulous job.
I reminded my news director that we are doing very well compared to other stations across the country that were knocked off the air for several days and sometimes weeks due to severe weather. One other note is that I will not have a chroma key to do weather on this evening, but I have found a way to make some weather maps and our actual forecast computers are working again. So even though it would have been fun I will not have to get the crayons and magic markers and draw maps on poster board. I will see you at 6 p.m. I think the worst is over for the storms today, but I am still concerned once again for tomorrow night into Saturday morning for the brunt of our storms. See you at 6 p.m. and remember those lightning safety rules.
