7:03 am
in the mall but didn't and that he fired at least six times. some witnesses said they came face to face with him. >> he just walked past and waved at me with his ak-47 and i was like, wow, god was with me because he could have shot me right there. >> reporter: inside, confusion and chaos as many fled and escaped while some store managers barricaded themselves and their customers inside. >> we went in and got into the bathroom and locked the door and we sat there for over three hours waiting because they said don't come out. don't make any noises. >> reporter: it's a huge mall. 2.5 million square feet of space. his body was found in an area behind a part of the mall under construction. >> he does have a drug history. he has used drugs but what possessed him to do tonight what he did, no one can really say. >> reporter: police believe the gunman, shoop, acted alone.
7:04 am
they have been going through every inch of the mall to make sure that it's safe. it will not open today or until further notice. everyone is breathing is a sigh of relief. because all of this could have been so much worse. >> it could have. ron, thank you so much. it's 4 minute after the hour. here is savannah. >> it's election day and two key battles are getting attention this morning. the governor's races in new jersey and virginia. good morning, chuck todd. >> good morning. >> these are races that have significance beyond these states' borders. let's start in new jersey. is chris christie trying to show he's got crossover appeal? >> he's absolutely doing this. they're barely hiding the fact that they hope a big re-election victory for him. no republican has gotten over 50% in the state of virginia since the 80s. he might get over 60. george w. bush in 1998 ran up a big reelection score in texas, did well among hispanics,
7:05 am
african-americans, and the message was, hey, look at me, i can win. i'm electable. that's the message he wants to send in new jersey. he definitely has a national message. >> so he may say i am electable in a general election but he has to get through the republican primary if he is somebody that can prevail in a primary where sometimes the further right the candidate is, that's who the voters like. >> that's the difficult part. he has been talking up things like -- he says i'm a conservative but i'm willing to work across the aisle. he has a general election message down. that's clear. i don't know how he gets through the primary. his supporters will say he's a pro-life governor. we'll see, iowa is a different place than new jersey. >> very quickly, do you think chris christie is the opponent that hilary clinton fears the most? >> democrats fear christie. and some of them are regretting the fact they did not spend this governor's race starting to take a piece out of him. there's been a lot of hand wringing going, what have we done?
7:06 am
we have allowed him to use his friendship with president obama to build himself up. and become this formidable national figure. >> let's talk about virginia. this potentially tells a story larger than within the commonwealth borders. you have a tea party republican candidate that may lose to a democrat in what traditionally had been a republican stronghold. >> there's a lot of anti-tea party republicans. we have chris christie appealing to moderates and look at how that's going in new jersey. you have a tea party that took over the virginia republican party and look at how that's going. virginia republicans could get all three statewide races. they could be swept this year. that's the first time that would have happened since the 80s. there will be a lot of i told you sos on where the split of the republican party is. virginia could be tea party losses and new jersey moderate republicans winning. >> we know you'll be watching if it's tuesday, it's chuck todd. thank you very much. natalie is following an alarming incident at an airport. what can you tell us? >> that's right. we have amazing video to show you.

7:14 am
let's go to kerry sanders at dolphins training camp in south florida. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. when you think of bullying what first may come to mind is a great school playground where a big boy pushes around or beats up someone smaller but here at dolphins training camp we're talking about men. they're paid to take the field each week and crush the competition and now this morning there are signs this may go beyond bullying. miami guard richie incognito was voted in 2009 the dirtiest player in the nfl. >> on the field, players called me overly aggressive. >> reporter: an imagine he was trying to escape even making light of his public persona in this announcement urging miami fans to behave. >> be respectful and civilized and follow the code of conduct. >> reporter: but even as he remains suspended this morning

7:17 am
doors open at 8:00 p.m. and don't close until 10:00 p.m. friday. stores are opening earlier and staying open longer for one simple reason. they believe people will shop. >> we're a society that likes to spend. so no matter what, consumers will sacrifice to go in and get the best deal possible. it doesn't matter if that deal is coming in june or july or on national holidays such as thanksgiving. >> reporter: even macy's, the company that sponsored the thanksgiving day parade will open it's doors on the holiday for the first time in 155 years, waiting only a few hours after santa passes by the front doors. the pressure from the competition may have been too much. toys "r" us, target, walmart, all opened for business on thanksgiving last year. >> it's bad because it's a family holiday. it's like a business oriented capitalizing thing and it's supposed to be a holiday. >> reporter: for anyone that doesn't want to get in the car, almost every store has online deals that kick off on
7:18 am
thanksgiving as well. but retailers are facing a tough reality. the government shutdown slowed down the economy and took a serious toll on consumer confidence. just over half of shoppers will spend less than last year this christmas season. but there is a risk, the identity of one of the country's most cherished holidays maybe in jeopardy. >> when it comes to thanksgiving, i don't think it's going to be called thanksgiving. it's going to be called thanks for shopping. >> reporter: stephanie gosk in new york. >> people come down on either side of this issue. tamron hall is filling in for carson. what are people saying online? >> we posted a question on our facebook asking people do you think stores should be open on thanksgiving, simple question. the result, 80% of you said no. 20% of you said yes. some of comments people called it sad. feel bad for workers.
7:19 am
another person wrote us quit blaming corporate america. blame the consumer. stores would not be open if no customers and ladies, natalie and savannah, we know the attraction of walking out of the store after a great deal but the reality of the situation is what stephanie pointed out. this changed the game. 24/7, thanksgiving or not, you can go online and in your inbox, i promise you, day two before thanksgiving you'll be flooded with deals from everyone trying to get you to not go to the brick and mortar and go on this. >> i thought you meant m&ms -- >> perfect orange room hit al roker. a perfection man. i'll go shopping with you. we'll have fun on either day. >> straight ahead, exclusive imagines of the fiery collision between two sky diving planes and the story from the divers themselves. but first, this is "today" on nbc.

7:38 am
>> when you look at these videos, guys, all of you, do you see things that you actually don't remember from the event? >> yeah. i remember seeing sarah get hit but i don't remember dan on the strut of the plane and it's ironi ironic, because that is the bulk of the footage from my camera. >> i see my hand get stuck but i don't see -- >> hand stuck between two planes? >> yeah. i mean, my shoulder hurts but i don't see -- i should have a broken pelvis watching that. >> you should have a broken pelvis. >> yeah, i mean. >> we started this segment by asking for you to raise your hands if you're lucky to be alive or happy to be alive. raise your hands now if you'll get back in a plane and skydive again. really? >> not as soon as everybody else. really in no hesitation about that? >> it's just a part of who we are. >> i'm more terrified of spiders. >> it's true. >> we don't have that quite alarming video of spiders as we do this. guys, thank you for being with us. i really appreciate it.

8:18 am
believe something was wrong prior to the impact? was there anything strange about the flight? was there anything strange about the plane? >> no. no. everything was exactly as it should have been. >> and as you are checking your control surfaces as you just said trying to figure out whether you could land that aircraft, you're also in the process of trying to count parachutes. >> yes. >> looking at the horizon. looking around you. talk to me a little bit about that. >> well, for the first i guess roughly 45 to 50 seconds or however long they were in freefall i couldn't find anybody because you can't find people in free fall so once the parachute started opening up that's when i could finally try and pick people out. >> you're counting. you need nine skydivers and you're also looking for the shoot of the other pilot. >> right. >> did you see him come out of the plane? >> no. >> never did. but you saw the shoot finally? >> yes. >> you're a pilot as well, aren't you? what do you think he might have been going through.

8:31 am
but also the joys when that's the result. and we'll show you three style editors and what can they put together on a $100 budget. very impressive. >> our friend is taking over our kitchen. >> she has a new cookbook. new recipes. >> let's bring in tony robbins, congratulations on awakening the giant within. are you a listener or are you a talker? >> you need to be a listener, because everybody's needs are completely different. you have to act, otherwise, people just end up take -- end up not taking action. >> over the years is there one question that you consistently get over and over again? >> you know, people say what does it take to really break
8:32 am
through? i think the break through is that moment, so many have accumulat accumulated, we started off excited with big dreams, then we have the disappointments and frustrations. and sometimes people disappoint you. you disappoint yourself. it's human nature to protect yourself from getting help. so that same protection becomes a wall that imprisons you. i took my book and made an e book out of it. instead of 544 pages, i'm giving away a 100-page version to people and they can change their bodies, their emotions, their relationships. >> something happened on thanksgiving that had a profound effect. >> yes, it does. i hope people listening will consider what simple acts of kindness will do. we had no food at thanksgiving. we wouldn't have starved, but a man knocked on the door randomly. he father was offended but we took it to need it to survive. it changed my life. i swore i'd find a way to do something.
8:33 am
so at 17 i had two families, next year, now we feed 2 million people in my foundation and because of the food stamps, i know november 1, 47 million people had basically a meal a week taken out of their life. >> yeah. >> i'm going to donate -- i'm going to match what the whole foundation does and going to donate half a million meals here in new york alone and i'm not trying to impress you, but impress you that there's need. there's a local areas, and you can build some baskets of food and truly make a difference. >> very nice. always good to have you here. >> thank you. happy holidays. >> here's a check of the weather. >> show you what we've got going on. let's start off with today, and you will see we are looking at st. louis, mo. a little on the cloudy side. cooling down by thursday. rest of today, you have another storm system coming into the pacific northwest. up and down the east coast looking good.

8:35 am
now the our special series "choosing adoption." as we mark national adoption month. kate snow walks us through the challenges and the potential pit falls of the process. good morning to you. >> good morning. so my husband is adopted. a lot of people in my family have adopted children. it's a wonderful, glorious thing. but but idon'tionb can filled with emotional ups and downs and we asked one family outside of chicago to tell us their story and shed some light on the heartache and the joy. when theresa and rick meyer married they were so sure they'd become parents they started a college fund before even getting pregnant. >> we both came from big families so to say that we wanted a big family, we wondered if that was in the cards. >> but it didn't happen. they tried ivf with no success. and then about five years ago they made the decision to adopt. but it wasn't what they expected.
8:36 am
>> you might as well bring the cameras, bring them in the bedroom, bring them in the house. you know? you are giving out that information. >> paperwork, then home visits, finger prints, background checks. their lives became an open book. literally. they made this photo book for prospective birth parents. >> you're marketing yourself. >> this is a dear birth letter. >> they compare it to making a profile for a dating website. >> we would get a phone call and they would say that, okay, you're one of four -- they picked you. they picked three other families too. >> that's not an uncommon experience. more than two million families are actively seeking to adopt. adoption expert chuck johnson says many parents spend more time researching plumbers than the adoption agency they'll choose, which can lead to problems. >> we're all aware and more increasingly more aware of the
8:37 am
potential scams or of countries closing the international adoption or of parents changing their mind. >> a mother sent them ultrasound pictures of the baby they wanted, but a few weeks later the birth mother had changed her mind. her legal right. >> i was getting disappointed. i was sort of at the end of my rope. >> after five years and thousands of dollars they were done. now thinking about using their nonexistent child's fund for a big vacation. but then, one phone call changed everything. michael is almost 2 now. after waiting years, it took just three weeks and they had their baby. >> after all the paperwork and the delays and the wait, that moment when they handed you your son. >> everything we wanted, everything we worked for and just in he was.
8:38 am
>> it didn't matter whether we had our own child, whether we adopted a child, but to be able to raise a child as your own, i watch him do everything for the first time. it's -- that's it. i mean, that's -- that's what it's all about. >> yay. >> so important to remember that it can be a fulfilling ending to the story. the miieriers were dealing witha domestic adoption and that can cost up to $25,000. adopting out of foster care can be a lot less expensive, but often a lot of paperwork and bureaucracy. that can take a couple of years and for international adoption, wait times can range from a year and half up to six years. >> wow. >> we are talking up to 50,000 dollars for an international adoption. >> i remember the story you did a while ago it disturbed a lot of people. people who had adopted and then
8:39 am
didn't get the support they needed and had to go online and look for another home. a story you did with reuters. >> right, it was a partnership with reuters, in september. we got so much reaction there are congressional hearings that will be held about the issue. there are governments like china changing their rules and policies on adoption because of the reporting we did. but the bottom line is that everyone is saying, there's a new report out in the adoption institute saying parents need support. once you adopt a kid, that's the first step. but then there's a lifetime ahead of you and you need support. >> obviously people have to do their homework and what other tips would you give them? >> one, choose one agency. don't sort of try lots of different agencies and ways to go about adoption. choose one, and do your homework, make sure they're reputable. tell your friends. tell everyone you're trying to adopt because often it's word of mouth that leads you to the phone call. finally, keep your mind on the end goal. it's what they have with michael. that's the end goal, right?
8:40 am
and theresa said when you go through labor and you have a baby, it's horrible, right? but then afterwards you sort of forget about the labor part. >> right. >> you go through all this work, you have this wonderful child and all that work is -- it doesn't matter. >> reward is so great. kate, thank you so much. we want to remind everybody tomorrow on the series "choosing adoption," we have a personal story from dr. nancy schneiderman as her birth daughter journeys to meet her firth mother. coming up next, from a day at work to a night on the town, secrets to deconstructing your style dollar. but first this is "today" on nbc.

8:42 am
>> announcer: today's weather is brought to you by dove body wash. doesn't your skin deserve better care? >> this morning on today's style, how to shop like a fashion editor on a $100 budget.
8:43 am
dana, isabelle are all editors at instyle magazine. they hit the stores for us. they all had $100. good morning to all of you. >> good morning. >> and we have models in shape wear. we're going to dress you. don't worry. but $100, can you really get some of trends that are in style right now for that little? >> yes, you can. so i went with the cam mo trend. this top is only $59. what's so amazing is designers are getting playful so now inside the traditional camo that you're used to its a much softer grey palate which makes it easier for women. >> i also feel like it's sophisticated. it doesn't seem trendy in the bad sense. >> it reads more like a graphic print. these jeans are super soft stretch. they're 1995. >> isn't it fun to do this on morning television? >> and they're perfect for the
8:44 am
weekend. super comfortable. forever 21 is one of the best stores for affordable accessories. you can load up and i found these which are one of my favorites and then two bracelets only $5. that's an incredible price and then we paired them with black flats but when it gets a little cooler you can just swap it out for your boots. >> or do a pop of color. >> you look great. thank you. move on. >> we've got a great sheeth dress. it's the mini length. this was the bulk of my budget. i spent $80 on it. but it's worth the investment. this is a dress you can wear year round. in the winter, certainly with tights and pumps and in the summer -- i'm going to help caitlin get dressed here -- and in the summer with metallic heels and then what's nice about it also is because it is a longer length, it is a longer length. >> thank you. >> we're good. >> it's appropriate enough for
8:45 am
work and this is a trend also we're seeing on a lot of celebrities right now from sandra bullock to victoria beckham. >> i like how you add a splash of color. >> you could wear this out at night. it's $20 from h&m and a great pop of color. you don't need a lot of accessory with a dress like this. it has such a great print. we have pretty shinies from clares. >> enough since you blew your budget on this gorgeous dress. it looks great. we move down the line. what look for you going for? >> so i love black and white for fall. i think it's classic and timeless and anyone can wear it. so i found this sweater from h&m. it's only $13 and it's cropped which is a huge trend for fall and i know some people think they can't pull it off. >> i was going to ask you, can anyone wear crop. >> anyone can as long as you wear it with a high waisted
8:46 am
skirt. it's high waisted so you won't see any skin but it hits right at the belly and i love this one because it's a-line so it hides your hips and it's a mini skirt and a lot of people are intimidated by minis but falls are the perfect time to wear them. >> tights are forgiving. >> they're much more forgiving than bear legs. and you can do a look so she has the black tight with the black booties but you can do a black pump or flat and make your legs look longer. >> what about this necklace? >> i wanted to jazz it up so i found this amazing necklace for $40 and it's big and chunky and makes a statement. i spent the majority of my money on this. it was $40 but it adds glamour to the look. >> you can put it with the t-shirt or a million things. >> you can put it with a dress or suit and give the wow effect. >> if you're going to wear a shirt this short shouldn't you wear flat shoes. >> she is pulling it off. >> if you can do it, do it.
8:47 am
>> if you can do it. thank you so much. $100. great. appreciate it very much. coming up next, giada de laurentiis on her most personal book yet and her favorite feel good soup. but first, this is "today" on nbc. when our little girl was born, we got a subaru. it's where she said her first word.

8:50 am
you the question how do you stay so slim. >> it's the first question out of people's mouths. >> because you work with food. >> so they don't understand how can i eat all of this food and then stay trim so i have given my secrets out in the new book. >> in one book. >> great. we're making it a little different than what i'm used to. >> i hear you're a fan. >> i love it. okay. talk about ingredients. there's a lot of them. >> there's a lot of ingredients in a one-pot meal and it's usually made with rice but it's also made with noodles. people don't know that. i revamped it and made it lighter took out the sausage and did chicken, clams and shrimp. you can put whatever seafood and meat you like. break it up and it's the spices that make it traditional. >> all right. you have done your cutting in advance. >> a little help here. a little olive oil.
8:51 am
not much. nutritional break downs in all the recipes this time and it's interesting how much olive oil and salt i had to take out of my food. >> you were adding some calories and fat? >> yes. i love it. i think olive oil is great but when the nutritionist goes through it she says too much. >> clam juice and tomatoes. >> these are canned tomatoes. >> yeah. so a lot of the stuff you can have in your pantry and this can take 30 minutes to make. so bay leaf and smoked paprika and saffron and then what we do is we cook the spaghetti that you break up and your kids with break that up and they let that cook for 8 to 9 minutes. >> all right. >> over here -- >> you have your brown chicken here. chicken goes in first? >> chicken goes in first. brown the chicken first and leave it out until the pasta is
8:52 am
cooked. >> okay. >> this is always tricky. clams and shrimp in and then you just put the lid on and let it cook for about five minutes. >> that's all it takes? >> yes. and this is what you've got. how good does that look? >> it looks good. so the only thing that's missing out of this is the crisp from the bottom of a traditional paella. >> it has the flavor, even a little bit more flavorful than a traditional paella. i like the pasta. >> it's good, right? >> and you serve that with a salad? ar ar arugula and croutons and a pear. >> i'll go back to the book. you say it's more personal. you also talk about family a little bit and you talk about the contents of your purse. what is that all about? >> you know what, a lot of
8:53 am
people have also asked me what do i carry in my purse. >> guys don't get it. >> no, but women do. they want to know what tricks do you do every day. a spray bottle to keep myself hydrated. i have a little coloring book for my daughter i have sharpies in case i have to sign anything. certain lip balm and tricks for the trade that keep a woman growing. >> although the recipes in here are healthier and leaner this is not a diet book. >> this is not a diet book. i don't believe in diets. so i have a month's worth of meals but it's not to lose weight. there's vegan, dairy-free and gluten free as well as meat. a little bit of everything. >> there you go. we're back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc.

ask. >> all right. that and much more. >> thanks giada. >> we keep good morning to you. it is 8:56. i'm laura garcia canon. child care requirements in several states include california are not strict enough. the department of health and human services found california and 20 other states don't require yearly unannounced inspections of licensed child care providers. california only requires one every five years, and only 15 states require background
8:57 am
checks. california does require background checks for child care employees who interact with kids, so it does not include employees like janitors. in addition to california, the study sampled florida, illinois, ohio, and texas. california's inspection requirement is the least strict. another update in half hour. see you then.

>> announcer: from nbc news, this is today's take with al roker, natalie morales, and willie geist. live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. welcome to today on this tuesday morning, november 5th, 2013. i'm willie geist along with al roker and nataliemorales. >> that's coming in nice. >> do you think? >> not so patchy after all. >> this is november 5th. just imagine november 30th. >> you undersold yourself. >> i think let's not celebrate yet is what i would say. >> i'm smelling grizzly adams. >> willie from duck dynasty right here. >> no, it's going to be like grizzly adams over here. i worry about the balance. this skydiving video,
9:01 am
unbelievable. if you haven't seen it yet, this is a mid-air collision over the weekend in wisconsin. it was caught on the helmet cams. good news everybody is okay. somehow, some way. two planes carrying a group of nine skydivers crash in mid-air as they were getting ready to jump. one of the planes as you see in the video plummets to the ground on fire. >> watch the wing come up and traps those two. >> yeah, it clipped the wing off of the one plane. >> of all the incredible things that happened in this video, the most amazing is that the pilot of the plane, he pulled the emergency shoot and he gets out of the plane and lands safely. incredible. the other plane was damaged, still able to fly and with a damaged aircraft, that pilot maintained his calm and stuck the landing on the plane. it was funny listening to him talk to matt and he said it was actually one of my better landings.
9:02 am
>> yeah. what was really amazing, though is when matt asked who will get back into a plane and jump they all raised their hands. >> yeah, we've got that moment. let's check it out. >> raise your hands now if you'll get back in a plane and sky dive again. >> really? >> not as soon as everybody else. >> really? no hesitation about that? >> it's just part of who we are. >> i'm more terrified of spiders. >> what if a spider was in a plane. >> spiders on a plane. >> what's remarkable is that they all have tons of experience, either skydiving or flying planes. that's what came through here. the situation could have ended worse. >> for both of the pilots to keep their calm. the one guy to get out with the shoot but then the other guy to land a plane that is damaged. >> that video looks like something out of a movie. >> it does. >> you see that and the fire. >> yeah. >> it looks like something -- >> but that would be done with
9:03 am
cgi. this is real. >> this is real. >> it's all real. the other thing what's so amazing now with these go-pro cameras that we can see this stuff now. >> the one guy actually turns around and looks back and you get the view of all the flames and the debris that they're flying -- that they're basically plummeting to the earth, all of that is falling right around them. >> and the folks on the ground were counting shoots to make sure they had nine shoots. >> a lot of experienced people doing the right thing in a moment of crisis. >> thank goodness for that experience. >> unbelievable. there's an ugly story in the world of sports today. this is bigger than sports. this is about bullying. >> this goes beyond bullying. this is threatening. >> yes. let's explain it a little bit. miami dolphins guard, a guy named richie incognito is suspended amid allegations he bullied fellow teammate jonathan martin. he usualed racially charged language against martin.
9:04 am
multiple sources heard these voice mails left for him in april. one including a death threat. >> it said i'll kill you on that voi voicemail apparently. >> yeah and there's ugly racial language on there. >> "n" word. >> yes, among other things. martin left the training camp last week and the head coach said he would not comment. neither incognito nor his representatives responded to request for comments. he did tweet earlier in the week shame on you for attaching my name to false speculation. i won't be holding my breath for an apology. but since then the voicemails have come out. if they are incognito. >> it's a mountain of evidence. >> i'd be shocked if he played in the nfl again. >> yeah and also seems like in some way or form, the team as a whole, i think, there are a lot of questions that need to be answered if there was more going on because there had been allegations and reports of
9:05 am
hazing to the point of, you know, players forcing the rookies to pay for lavish dinners. >> a lot of money. >> like $30,000 dinners when these are guys making about $400,000 a year. and if that's the case, that's one form of hazing but then it crossing the line into bullying and even more, threatening. >> yes. it's worse. >> it goes to show you that bullying comes in all shapes and sizes. doesn't matter if you're a 300 pound man playing in the nfl. in all forms. >> and the culture that permeates professional sports. i'm not trying to indict anybody but are the miami dolphins isolated in this activity? >> that's the right point. martin was a rookie when this started. rookies are hazed as a manner of tradition. there's a behind the scenes show on hbo where they tape the rookies to the goal posts and make them carey the bags. these the pranks but it goes beyond that. >> we did that to you. >> it went on for months.
9:06 am
>> the hazing starts now. we shouldn't even joke about it. >> we take willie to my weather map. >> still, almost a year in. but you do wonder where's the leadership whether it's the coaching staff or the captains of the team to say guys enough is enough. you want to tape him to the goal post and everybody is around and we're laughing about it, but maybe. >> but the incident in the cafeteria which is when martin got up and left and said i can't take it anymore and it took an emotional break, psychological break but it sounds like all the players, the allegations are left him sitting by himself. it sounds like high school over again. >> yeah. >> it's pathetic and really i think outrageous. >> these are a couple of quotes to sports illustrated from people that work in the nfl in front offices. one of them said i think jonathan martin is a weak person. richie incognito did offend him racially. if he did, that's something you have to handle as a man.
9:07 am
another quote, instead of being a man and confronted him he acted like a coward and told like a kid. so there's the culture you're talking about. >> that's great. >> all right. >> so another story making news, have you seen this thing? the electronic tool? it's a kick starter program? >> yes. they're trying to raise money for this. they need about $20,000. talk about distracting driving. how would you like to see that in the car in front of you. >> so it's a gadget that allows drivers to communicate with each other. the car behind you with a remote controlled led display that attaches inside your rear window. so the right panel you're seeing there -- >> that said hey sexy. >> oh. >> so the flirtation here. >> so you can message a driver behind you and say you're getting too close or whatever. >> and then the person behind you have to figure out what that is. >> and then he rear ends you. >> do they use the universal sign for -- >> i don't think it flips you
9:08 am
off. no. >> i could use that. >> back in the 70s there was -- we used to give them out as gag gifts but they were a handheld sign or flip board that had different sayings on them. but they were analog. this is before we knew about distracted driving. anyway, hold it up. >> that's all you need. here's your number and you're trying to get a date with the person behind you. >> can you imagine hitting on a man or woman in the back window of your car. >> isn't that how you met kristina. >> yeah, we told that story at our rehearsal dinner. >> it was middle school. >> yeah, my bicycle. >> she rear ended you. >> al. >> you were driving. >> we are a wonderful loving family. >> come on over. i'll take you over to the weather map. anyway, let's see what we've got going on right now. we're basically looking at a descent day today. although, our top story is this
9:09 am
storm system getting itself together in the plains. one side of it you've got rain. on the other side of it, colder side, you've got snow. as you can see, we're already seeing snow making its way into nebraska. heavier showers and thunderstorms ahead of this system. so snowfall amounts basically about 6 to 9 inches in central nebraska. 3 to 5 inches as you get just south of minneapolis and then on the southern, the warmer side of this system, look for heavier rain north of dallas on into arkansas. parts of missouri, oklahoma and the hey, thanks. happy tuesday to you. temperatures are going to be warmer today. lots of sunshine. all the way from the coast through your inland valleys. 77 degrees in livermore. 72 for concorde. 73 in san jose, and you'll still hit about 70 degrees in san francisco. by tomorrow warming even more so, and then we take those numbers down thursday into friday. saturday and sunday more changes headed our way. another storm system comes through.
