Good Thursday morning!
Mad Gab Results
Every time I play Mad Gab, I search the deck for puzzles that I think would be a challenge. Usually you guys figure them out anyway, but Tuesday's games were an exception to that rule. See Exhibit A below:
Gab #1 (29/29): Watt Senate Form He =
What's in it for me?
Gab #2 (13/29): Eye Mention Toot Riot =
I'm itching to try it
Note: Players who got this answer correct will receive a bonus point since less than half of you got it right.
Gab #3 (20/29): Dawn Beat Who Are Dead Hid =
Don't be too hard-headed
3: Sharon (8:41am, Tuesday)
13: Sally (11:19am, Tuesday)
23: Katie (9:10pm, Tuesday)
Topic #1: Name a part of the body that a doctor might specialize in
Topic #2: The most common food at a picnic
Respond with one answer to each of the two topics. Every person responding with the #1 most popular answer among all entries received receives two points per topic. Every person with the #2 most popular answer will receive one point. Just like the TV show, all answers must have at least two submissions to be eligible for points. In the case of a tie, both sets will receive the same point value for that topic.

Areas of fog are expected this morning. The fog will be quite dense in places...and reduce visibilities to less than 1/4 mile. The fog will gradually lift...and visibilities should rise significantly by 900 am. If you are traveling early this morning...use extra caution.
Now: At 7am with clouds, areas of fog, chirping birds and isolated showers across the state, temps are pretty mild already, mostly in the lower 60s.
Synopsis: A strong area of low pressure is centered in northwestern Wisconsin, with frontal boundaries stretching east and south from the low. This means another day of scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms can be expected, but unlike yesterday's storms, these are not expected to be severe.
Today: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms. High of 74. Rain chance 70%.
Tonight: Maybe a shower or thunderstorm early, then partial clearing overnight. Lows mid- to upper 50s.
Tomorrow: Partly sunny, highs mid- 70s.
Saturday: Partly cloudy, maybe a shower Saturday night, highs 76-81. Rain chance Saturday night 30%.
Sunday: Partly sunny, maybe a thundershower, highs 80-85. Rain chance 25%.
Next Week’s Outlook: Moisture coming up from the south will give us a chance of showers and thunderstorms almost every day next week (the best chance is on Tuesday). Temps should remain mild though, around 75-83 or so.
Today in Las Vegas, Nevada: Sunshine, highs near 100.
Today in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina: Isolated afternoon thunderstorms, breezy, highs near 80.
Today in League City and Pearland, Texas: Partly cloudy, highs upper 80s.
Today in Evansville, Indiana: Scattered thunderstorms, highs upper 80s.
Widely scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue to move across portions of southwest Indiana and northwest Kentucky through daybreak. Some of the stronger storms will be capable of brief heavy downpours producing a quick inch of rain.
