    A Texas talk show host stormed off set Tuesday after a heated discussion was ignited when she expressed disapproval of coverage showing Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend. “Can we just agree that this was an opportunity to make news?” KTXD-TV’s “The Broadcast” host Amy Kushnir asked. “He has every right to do what he wants, that’s not my issue,” she added. “I just don’t want it in my face.” “Well, then maybe you don’t need to see romantic comedies or when people kiss on television,” one of the co-hosts shot back. “Why does she not have the right to say...

    The excruciating heat that smothered the mid-Atlantic under triple-digit temperatures came to an end Sunday, leaving in its wake buckled roadways, kinked train tracks, withered yards and a newfound sense of what it means to be hot. A weak cold front moving into northern Maryland should make for “relatively cooler temperatures,” National Weather Service meteorologist Andy Woodcock said, which “is a joke to say the upper 80s.” “The average maximum temperature for July is supposed to be 87 or 88 degrees,” Mr. Woodcock said. “We’re going to cool down to the norm.”

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - About 3.4 million people were without power in the eastern United States on Saturday from powerful thunderstorms that stretched from Indiana to New Jersey accompanied by record heat. States of emergency were declared in Ohio, Virginia and West Virginia because of overnight storms with hurricane-force winds that knocked down trees and power cables along a 500-mile-long stretch. At least eight people were killed. Forecasters predicted more severe thunderstorms partnered with renewed heat on Saturday. Restoring power in some areas could stretch into next week and utilities in Ohio and Virginia described damage as "catastrophic." "It's going to...

    Violent evening storms following a day of triple-digit temperatures wiped out power to more than 2 million people across the eastern United States and caused two fatalities in Virginia — including a 90-year-old woman asleep in bed when a tree slammed into her home, a police spokeswoman said Saturday. Widespread power outages were reported from Indiana to New Jersey, with the bulk of the service interruptions concentrated on Washington, D.C., and the surrounding areas. Earlier Friday, the nation’s capital reached 104 degrees — topping a record of 101 set in 1934.

    The climate may be less sensitive to carbon dioxide than we thought – and temperature rises this century could be smaller than expected. That's the surprise result of a new analysis of the last ice age. However, the finding comes from considering just one climate model, and unless it can be replicated using other models, researchers are dubious that it is genuine. As more greenhouse gases enter the atmosphere, more heat is trapped and temperatures go up – but by how much? The best estimates say that if the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere doubles, temperatures will rise...

To put that in perspective, only eight years in the 160 years of records have had 16 or more storms in a season. The season should start early with one or two threats by early July, and stay late with additional threats extending well into October.

The storm, named Xynthia, was the worst in France since 1999 when 90 people died. Prime Minister Francois Fillon held an emergency cabinet meeting and afterward called the storm a "national catastrophe." Many of the at least 45 victims in France drowned, while others died when hit by parts of buildings or trees and branches that were ripped off by the wind. At least a dozen people were missing...

    Actually, it was a dark and stormy weekend. On Friday, right after the computer office closed, our tower-broadcast Internet access failed. It remained out until Monday morning. Meanwhile, Michelle and I had two articles each that were on deadline. But that was the easy part. We have a good friend who is an adopted grandmother, named Gibson Jefferson McConnaughey, almost 91 years old. A week ago, she was fine for her age. Thursday she was in the hospital with serious complications from a blood clot. Saturday morning she died. Until an hour before she died, she was conscious and talking...
  • Heaviest Snow In Twenty Years Hits UK, Europe

    The heaviest snowfall in 20 years closed thousands of schools and caused transportation chaos up the eastern side of Britain, with London and the surrounding areas the hardest hit. Six million bus passengers were stranded as all London's bus services were halted because of dangerous driving conditions, and almost every subway line was at least partially suspended. Most commuter rail services were also cancelled or seriously delayed, and flights at London's airports were decimated, with both of Heathrow's runways shut, Luton and London City closed, and Gatwick and Stansted flights subject to delays and short-notice cancellations. Similar conditions were reported...

    Is the snowstorm back on for this week? I think so, in moderate form. What looked like a monster storm initially, then a storm that was pushed farther out to sea, is now coming back around this morning. So, what happened? Yesterday, I read a theory about a problem with the computer models. It was presented by Meteorologist Henry Margusity from Accuweather. Basically, the impending eruption of Mt. Redoubt in Alaska has diverted intercontinental flights.

    SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA - December 8, 2008 (OWSweather.com) Rare 50 year Arctic Blast Sets Sights On Southern California. With a week away, and a sure sign of things to come, OWSweather.com is making preparations on the server to handle the traffic from this next event.

With a warm November, Southern California is finally ready for cold storms to make their way in. Resort level snow will be likely next week, and in pretty hefty amounts...

    Rising water from the Cedar River forced the evacuation of a downtown hospital Friday after residents of more than 3,000 homes fled for higher ground. A railroad bridge collapsed, and 100 city blocks were under water. Cedar Rapids was the hardest-hit city in Iowa, where Gov. Chet Culver declared 83 of the state's 99 counties as state disaster areas and nine rivers were at or above historic flood levels. Elsewhere in the upper Midwest, rivers and streams tipping their banks forced evacuations, closed roads, and even threatened drinking water. The hospital's 176 patients, including about 30 patients in a nursing...
