2 hour fog delay on Monday.

Blogger.com is down and will not take my posts even though you can access the site.

I am trying this just in case some you can read the comments.

We currently call 13 different media outlets. Next year we are considering reducing to 4 media and the blog site. Under consideration are WAWC, WRSW and one FT Wayne and one South Bend TV station and The Wawascene.

We have found the local stations with local listeners are very careful to get the news out correctly and quickly. Larger markets are deluged with calls and sometimes get it wrong.

If we do this it will be announced in a very big way so that everyone gets advanced notice.
