Snow is once again falling here in Chicago and the kids and I are making the most of it by building forts, having snowball fights and sledding. I don't remember getting as many snow storms as we have since I was a kid. But I guess everything back then was larger than life. We do have some important news stories to talk about on the show including two important lawsuits and one elevator accident that ended up in a fatality. Plus the Crocs Corporation is back in the lime light! Plus there are a couple of good stories that feature elevator companies. And one awful one down in Atlanta that will make you sick to watch it!  So many stories this week, so little time!
