Road Conditions in and Around Texarkana Feb. 13, 2012

I video taped my trip in this morning so you could see what the roads looked like before you head out this morning. I purposely hit the breaks on some of the bridges so I could tell our listeners if it was slippery out this morning or not.

Car Commercial Being Filmed in Virginia Captures East Coast Earthquake [VIDEO]

The 5.8 earthquake that struck yesterday gave folks all over the middle part of the East Coast something to breathlessly discuss. Yet, no one seems to have been seriously injured in the shake. In other words, BEST EARTHQUAKE EVER!

In Chantilly, Virginia, which is not too far from the quake’s epicenter, an auto shop was shooting a commercial when the ground went wobbly. Here is the footage from the shoot, which pretty much sums up the essence of the East Coast earthquake — a brief rush of fear followed by the baffling realization that you just experienced an earthquake.
