Small World!

You may have noticed there’s a new reporter at KRTV named Alex Grubb – he’s off to a great start, and he came to us from Tucson, Arizona. Heh…he arrived here just in time for our sub-zero blast. When Alex came up to apply for the position several weeks ago, I mentioned that I have Arizona roots, too; born in Phoenix and spent the first six years of my life there, although I have very…


Weekend Update!

Great weekend, albeit a bit chilly 🙂 It was nice seeing Dona and Grant at 3D on Friday night, and we were lucky to grab the last crab leg dinner (and some tasty grill, natch!) for dinner. Saturday we headed to the City Bar for some sandwiches and of course we each had a Tom & Jerry (have you had yours yet?). Then it was off to get a Christmas tree from the lot on…


Furnace Fiasco

Our story so far: on Monday night, when the temperature outside was around -24 and still falling, the furnace died. We didn’t know it at first – we heard a strange “whining” sort of sound around 10 pm, figured it might have been someone’s brakes outside; a few minutes later, we noticed a strange smell – almost like an electrical fire. We raced around the house, trying to locate the source, checking outlets, unplugging things,…


Too Cold?!

That sentiment may have been triggered by our furnace giving up the ghost last night…or seeing the trusty temperature gauge read -35 around 7:45 a.m. this morning…or standing outside for nearly two hours at the…


Day Of Giving

If you want to help the Great Falls community, Tuesday is the day: KRTV will be at Pierce Flooring all day long (6am-6pm!) collecting donations of food, clothing, and toys as part of the annual “Day Of Giving!” I’ll be manning the booth from 9am to 11pm. Come on down and see us, and bring something to donate!


BRRRRRR!

So…any of you finally starting to feel a little more of the holiday spirit, now that it’s sub-zero and we have snow on the ground? In my 7+ years here, we’ve had slightly colder temperatures than this – but never this early in the season! Right now – around 7:15 p.m. on Monday night – it’s about -18 degrees. Coldest actual temp I’ve seen here was last year on December 21, when it hit -31.
