Valentine's Day Wind Warnings and a Valentine's Vlog for the Single

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone. Everyone is loved from someone, whether they're near, far or have passed away. The love you share never ends.  There are a couple other things to keep in mind this day. One is weather-the other is a thought provoking Valentine's Video blog or Vlog from our friend Scott "Bear" Elliott to people who are alone today. We'll get to both here.

1)  HIGH WINDS TONIGHT/SUNDAY- NORTHEASTERN/MID-ATLANTIC  U.S. 

-   Because there's a Valentine's Day Blizzard hitting New England again, and some serious sustained winds are forecast to batter areas from coastal Maine to Maryland/Washington, D.C. tonight and Sunday.
  WHY? -  It's all because of a low pressure area off the northeastern U.S. coast that's rapidly intensifying. As a result, it's going to bring some heavy snows and strong winds (Blizzard Warnings are in effect)  to coastal New England and mostly strong winds from New Jersey to Washington, D.C (with some snow).  There are HIGH WIND WARNINGS UP all along the coast.
   WHAT TO KNOWA high wind warning means a damaging wind event is expected.  Sustained winds of at least 40 mph or gusts of 58 mph. Anticipate power outages

  THESE ARE TROPICAL-STORM FORCE WINDS!!!!! 

   WINDS FROM MAINE TO WASHINGTON, DC:  -.northwest 30 to 40 mph with gusts to 60 mph.

   IMPACTS -  Downed trees and powerlines may result in power   outages. Minor structural damage will be possible. Driving  high profile vehicles in these conditions will be dangerous.
    PRECAUTIONS - 
* Expect power outages (if they don't happen, be happy)
* Don't park cars under trees
* If you have large trees around your house- STAY DOWNSTAIRS. 
* Some bridges will likely be Off-limits to tractor trailer trucks and possibly SUVs or high profile vehicles.


 2) Our Friend Scott "Bear" Elliot's Valentine's Vlog For The Lonely 
 It's Valentine's Day which for some really sucks. This message goes out to the world of Lonely Hearts that are having a really bad day.  Scott. Bear With Me (For Scott's FB page, where he posts Vlogs daily: https://www.facebook.com/BearWithMeRadioShow?fref=nf

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
