With the white stuff that fell over much of the Midwest this past weekend and the cold temperatures that have pushed in from the arctic I can honestly say that it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and with only a week and a half to go it’s much closer than I realized. While there are more escalator than elevator links on the show today one is very cool and just might save a life some day. I lead with that one this morning. I almost forgot, if you're looking for some last minute shopping items check out the ERS Online store. Remember that anything you purchase is marked up $5 and goes back to the EESF. I make no dinero off the products sold there and albeit expensive if you want some goodies and support the EESF at the same time consider buying a shirt or coffee mug.
