Our thoughts and hearts go out to the victims of tonight's Paris attacks. A friend of one of our staff members is currently in Paris celebrating her engagement. Thankfully, shortly after the incidents, Facebook notified our staff member that her friend was safe.

Such a tragedy brings to the forefront the power of social media. Today's technology allows us to do many things... Share our thoughts at the touch of a screen, take selfies, and google that weird ingredient thats on the menu. Social media also serves a deeper purpose... Information when it is needed most. It is what allows us a direct line to your smartphone to keep you informed of the latest weather event or tips for a safe holiday. It also reminds us that what is happening a half a world away is not always as far away as it seems.

We thank you for following us and understand our commitment to you. Not only do we strive to provide you with tips and updates on what is happening around the county, but we are also committed to providing you with verifiable information when it matters most.

Are you ready to talk about snow? There's nothing in the forecast. I just wanted to put this out there and see if this was something that you were ready to talk about moving forward.

Have a great day!

Good morning,

We bring you great news to start your day. A review of the current Hurricane model from the National Weather Service National Hurricane Center suggests that Hurricane Joaquin will remain well offshore and at this time it does not appear that Joaquin will have an impact here in Morris.

This does not mean however that we should let our guard down. As we have learned from past events, things can change rather quickly, and as a result, we will continue with our planning processes which are well underway with all of our partners.

We will continue to experience rain and increased winds which we will be monitoring.

Have a great day!
