Dave Spencer Longs for the Those Lazy, Hazy Days of Winter

The sun is closer to the earth in the winter than in the summer. That statement tempts me, ever so greatly, to say "Hah! I don't believe it!" Except that it is true.

The Worst Storms I Remember – Dave Spencer’s Top Five

I don’t remember very many really bad storms as a child. We’d have tornado warnings and the sirens would sound. That would frighten the life out of me, but then we’d head over to my grandmother’s house and go down into her basement and then nothing would materialize. And when I was kid, I LOVED snowstorms. But I’m all grown up now. And I have grown-up attitudes about some of these nasty storms. In a nutshell, I’m not a fan. Here now are the worst storms I can remember:

At WBKR, We Fry Eggs the Old Fashioned Way…on the Asphalt [VIDEO]

How Many Tornadoes Must We All Suffer? [VIDEO]

I mean, seriously, this unbelievable tornado season that has ravaged the midwest and the deep south seems to have no end. Last night, local television was interrupted with the news that more tornado warnings had been issued up in southeast Illinois. And they were moving toward the northeast, so nobody in the immediate area was in danger. And, to date, I haven't heard news of any significant damage. But head west a few states, and there's a different story.
