Bitter Cold and Wind to Bring Dangerous Below Zero Wind Chills Into Sat. Morning

Strong low presure in the Gulf of Maine through Saturday will continue to cause wind gusts locally from 30-35 mph through Saturday afternoon.  The wind in combination with the bitterly cold air in place will drop wind chills to -15 to -25 degrees at times through Saturday morning easing slightly to between -10 and -15 Saturday afternoon as temperatures climb from morning lows near zero into the low to mid teens. Dress appropriately for the cold wearing layers, a hat and mittens and covering exposed skin surfaces to reduce the chance for frost bite which can develop in as little at 15-20 minutes on exposed skin surfaces.

July 26, 1970 - One hungry elephant

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:17 PM EDT
On this day in 1970, what had been a popular attraction in the area was dealing with a big problem.

At Fox's Zoo in West Sand Lake, 9-week-old Asian Annie the elephant wasn't feeling that well.

Zoo owner Harold Fox took her to vets at Cornell, who found an allergy to cow's milk.

They prescribed generous supplies of crushed rice and bananas and goats milk.

The rice and bananas weren't a problem, but try finding enough goat's milk to feed an elephant?

We never did find what happened to Annie.July 26, 1970 - One hungry elephant
