Hi It's Jayne Ann Bugda from the "Producer Pod"
  Here's what we are working  on for Eyewitness News for  February 13, 2014.

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. ~John Ruskin

  Are you hanging in there? 
I remember when I was back in school and it snowed - it was great- stay home-play outside- watch the soaps! 
  Now- not so happy with the snow!  Cleaned off my car twice already today- and I imagine I will have to do it -because the storm is not done yet.

  Our Weather Team is hard at work - check out the forecast on line and on Eyewitness News.
