Behind the scenes...sleeping schedule
When you wake up in the morning groggy and wanting to keep sleeping... then you turn on the TV and you see these people on the news smiling and as chipper as can be...well, it is all a conspiracy. It is the man, man. Haha. Just kidding, kinda. Most of the morning show staff wakes up around 1:30AM. (If not earlier) So caffeine is a must. Your body does eventually get used to the schedule, again, kinda. I have been having a horrible time sleeping the last week. Since I was on vacation, staying up late, and used to getting at least 8 hours of sleep a night and sleeping in until about 8 AM or 9AM... So my body wants that back. I have been falling asleep the last week around 10:30 after laying in bed for a few hours. So I have been averaging about three hours of sleep a night and MAYBE getting a nap if I am lucky. As a matter of fact, last week I only got an hour of sleep one night. Team coffee to the rescue. Anyway, when you see us smiling on the morning show, just know that we are excited to be with you and encourage you to grab a pot of coffee and drink it too!
Quick check of the weather. Most of the rain showers this morning are light and will move off to the east. This afternoon we will start to see a little clearing and stay cool with a high in the mid-upper 70's. A little warmer tomorrow with plenty of sunshine, high 81. Near 90 for Thursday as rain moves in Thursday night into early Friday. This will cool us off into the lower 70's for highs for the weekend. The rain looks to be the first half of Friday and then we dry out for the weekend. Keep the garden hose handy the next few days and have a good one!
