Not watching Sandy? Television offers a marathon of L.I. Medium, DWTS, and Monday Night Football

Believer or not, Long Island Medium is a compelling show to watch.

WASHINGTON, October 29, 2012 – Let’s hope everyone in the path of Sandy has made all the necessary preparations because this is no time to be flippant about weather warnings.

CNN and the Weather Channel are keeping the emergency news and weather coverage up and both are available on line and on your smart phone.  So download them now.

If you are supposed to evacuate, do so, because this storm is one for the ages. While it makes for good television viewing, if you are not a newcaster, you should not be out in the roads, in a boat, scuba diving (yes, there was a man in full gear swimming in the streets) or for Pete’s sake, not on a surfboard

If you are fortunate enough to keep power, batten down the hatches, or you live North of the Mississippi, you can enjoy a night of great television.

I was born and educated in Southwest Virginia, traveled with my job all over America in my twenties and early thirties then came back to the mountains to raise my daughter.

I’ve been employed as everything from a quality control technician in industrial construction, to a mail processing plant manager, to postmaster of a small town. I’ve been to forty nine of the fifty states, as well as many other countries. Traveling will always be a passion I indulge, and something I’ll call upon often in my writing. 

I come from a long line of story tellers, and will shamelessly exploit a family tree resplendent with colorful and unique characters, both past and present.

In short my perspective will reflect the pride and familiarity I have of my Appalachian heritage. My stories will be a reflection of the values I believe we hold dearest here, all embellished with a healthy dose of Southern Appalachian flare.
