While parts of the country are seeing spring like temperatures South Dakota cant seem to get rid of old man winter. Parts of teh state saw up to ten inches of snow.

People in Floyd Co, Georgia are cleaning up after a surprise tornado damaged dozens of homes Wednesday night. One woman died of an apparent heart attack when the twister tore through their home. The Weather Service had not issued a tornado warning saying winter tornadoes in Georgia are quick, shallow and hard to detect.

Science is now telling us that Chicken Little was right! Kinda. Scientists say over the last decade the height of clouds has gotten lower. Researches say the findings could have a big effect on global climate change. The low clouds may help the earth cool more efficiently and offset some of the warming caused by greenhouse gasses. However, clouds being made of water vapor are in essence a greenhouse gas themselves.
