I never thought I would be praying for "average" temperatures in the winter...I'm usually wanting "above average" temperatures!  The "average" temperature in Iowa for thee 5th of February is 31 degrees with an "average" low of 13 degrees.  We can't even seem to make it up to the "average low" for a high!  And then we add in the SNOW and the WIND!  Sorry, I'll get off my soapbox, but bring on July!

Ross and Carly Nicholl of Grip-Tite Foundation Repair joined us in the studio this morning just after the 8:30 news.  Grip-Tite sponsors our "Get A Grip On $50,000!" contest.  Also, we will be joining them in their Des Moines Home & Garden Show booth at the Iowa Events Center on Saturday morning from 9AM-Noon.  They will have all the equipment they use to help with foundation issues in your home.  Stop by and get acquainted!  They are in booth #815.  If you can't make it to the show and you need their help, call 515-462-1313 or check them out at www.griptitefoundationrepair.com.

Please stop by the Holiday Vacations travel show today at either 2PM or 7PM at the Comfort Suites Hotel (next to the Iowa Machine Shed Restaurant) on Hickman Road just off I-80/35.  We'll be going over the Swiss Alps, Glacier Express & Lake Como trip that my husband, Gene, and I will be hosting September 4th thru the 13th.  Each attendee receives a $100 travel voucher for a Holiday Vacations tour.

Tomorrow on Van & Bonnie, we'll have more Bryan Adams (2nd row seating), Bella Fleck tickets and a Floppy t-shirt!  Also, we'll be broadcasting live from the two Satellite City locations from 3-6PM (Ankeny & Urbandale).

Drive Carefully!
