Just because today is a holiday doesn't mean Uncle Sam has shut down. Far from it, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. Lots of people are in today either because they have to be (as in they are essential) or they want to be (as in dedicated). Either way, have a good day...
It's been a rough winter so far in much of the country, with the worst yet to come. So how do you prep for ice and snow?
