Today is Monday, November 21
Overnight storms across the Heartland will give way to a damp day. And there are still some flash flood advisories active for many of you. Tune in this morning to The Breakfast Show to see what Brian's forecasting for the next 12 hours.
With the storms came power outages, especially for Ameren customers in Scott County. As I write this Ameren still have 270 customers in Scott County without power at 4 a.m.
We are also entering Thanksgiving week and stores and roads will be packed! If you are planning to drive to see family this week we'll look ahead this morning to help you make your trip safer for your family.
If you plan on flying somewhere of have family flying in then I have good news for you! The TSA is changing some rules to make it easier for you to get through security while at the same time not compromising your security. See how it will work at 6:40 this morning.
We are also talking turkey on The Breakfast Show today. Did you know that Missouri is the 4th largest grower of turkeys in the country? It's no surprise then to find out Mizzou is one of the leading universities in turkey feed research. We'll show you how the Tigers are making a plumper bird around 5:10 this morning.
And here's something you can use today if you're still planning a trip - also around 6:40 learn how to be a better bidder for some great travel deals online.
There is also some serious news developing overnight. In New York City, police have arrested a man they say was an "al-Qaida sympathizer" plotting to bomb police and post offices.
We also have new information this morning about the congressional "super committee" that was supposed to figure out how to get our deficit down. Well, it turns out the super committee might not be that super after all.
And if you are one of the thousands of people looking for work in this down economy - watch The Breakfast Show this morning around 5:15. We'll show you some great online resume tricks that just might get you a foot-in-the-door and maybe even a face-to-face interview.
An hour later at 6:15 we have a great story about the soldiers at Fort Campbell. You see, thousands of them have returned from war this year and wouldn't you know it - there's a baby boom happening on base!
