A Sad Christmas

Peter Franklin, the New York City Gabby Cabby joins me this afternoon (Tuesday) around 4:40 on the Puffman Show to share a rather poignant Christmas story.

There was

December Crop Conditions

Word was received earlier this morning (Monday), from "Tall" Todd, one of the custom cutter guys who comes up here to the Golden Triangle every season. Todd says that he visited with producers in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, & Colorado & that the conditions are DRY! Vaughn Elder, a producer in Leoti, Kansas, said that the driest year on record was 1934 (shades of the infamous Dust Bowl) & to date (last week) they are 3/4 of an inch below the record low for the calendar year, which means they have through THIS month to pick up 3/4 of an inch of precipitation to tie the record! Ken Adderholt said, in Vernon/Harrold Texas, that the winter wheat is up, but there's been no moisture since they planted it & if they turn livestock in the cattle pull the wheat up by the roots, when they graze it. Down in Oklaho

It was a Brute, Alright…But Was It a Brutus?

There's no argument that the winter storm that buried the Golden Triangle in snow last  week was a brute. But if you watched any of the coverage on The Weather Channel, you heard them refer to it repeatedly as "Brutus". Yes, TWC- and so far only TWC- is naming major snowstorms this winter. You can read the rational behind the decision HERE, but it boils down to three arguments:
