it's going to be wet and cold. we have every kind of weather other than locusts is our big problem. over 200 million people. you can see winter storm warnings. we have winter storm weather advisories, winter storm watches and right now you'll see we've got everything on the map. we've got snow up to the north. we have an icy mix. heavy thunderstorms now making their way through the southeast. this storm system will start getting itself together pushing up through the southeast later this afternoo heavy rain spreading up to the northeast later today by 1:00 to 2:00 this afternoon. overnight tonight you can see the colder air wrapping in so we're looking at snow. wind gusts of over 50 miles per hour. and wednesday it all lifts up. the storm winds will continue along with the snow and the lake effect. we're talking about generally anywhere from 4 to 6 inches of rain from atlanta up into the mid-atlantic coast.
7:03 am
you're going to be driving from the west to the east coast, look at this along i-90 along i-81 into i-80 we're talking about anywhere from 3 inches up to a foot of snow. it's going to make for a real miserable drive. we're going to be talking about the wind which is are going to be ferocious and may have an impact on the thanksgiving day parade. >> we'll be in the 50s tomorrow and back down to the 30s for that parade day. >> this is coming at the worst possible time with all of this thanksgiving travel. more delays and cancellations at the airport. tom costello is one of the nation's busiest in atlanta. what's the situation there. >> reporter: hey, savannah, good morning. in fact, cold and wet describes it here but it's 34 degrees. it is not sleet. it is not ice. it's just rain right now. this is the busiest airport in the world. 63 million people coming through atlanta airport. it's going to be critical to see
7:04 am
how this airport handles all of this through the next days. take a look at this camera. we'll be looking at the depart stats here in atlanta. so far we're off to a good start. no cancellations or delays. we're going to be watching that closely throughout the day. we also want to check flight's misery map. this is a very useful interactive tool on airport delays and cancellations. so in addition to atlanta this morning we're also watching the washington airports and their main routes and new york city and their main routes and boston logan and it's main routes. already showing creeping red today. in memphis they're showing significant delays already this morning. all of this critical to watch as we start to see how the storm effects the ohio valley, especially and the appalachian spine. those smaller airports could feel the pinch. also watching all of this, the american airline's dispatch
7:05 am
center in dallas. about 1,000 cancellations in total at dfw and that dispatch center watches all weather across the country. they have a very close eye on all of this. it is rain. in some areas it will be sleet. it will be high winds and then the potential for some snow in some remote areas over the next 48 hours or so and of course atlanta being the joke point for the entire country being the biggest airport. this airport is going to be very much in the thick of it. guys back to you. >> tom costello, thank you very much. appreciate it. in the meantime, nearly a year after the tragedy at sandy hook elementary school in connecticut we have the most comprehensive report yet on that shooting. good morning. >> good morning, matt. the report by the connecticut department of criminal justice gives a moment by moment account of the shooting and a detailed look at the troubled look at the life of gunman adam lanza. the only question it doesn't answer is why. >> reporter: the report gives the best insight to the
7:06 am
20-year-old man that perpetrated the worst school shooting in history. it confirms adam lanza acted alone. the entire event ended with the gunman's suicide. lanza blasted his way into the school with his rifle, a walking arsenal he carried two pistols and fired 154 the more than 300 rounds of ammunition he carried. inside his home, investigators found his first victim, his mother nancy, shot in her bed with a rifle t. report states lanza had significant mental health issues that effected his ability to live a normal life and interact with others. he didn't leave his home three months prior to the shooting. garbage bags were taped over the window and his computer shows a reoccupation with mass murders including school shootings. he refused to take his
7:07 am
medication and therapy but no one saw violent tendencies. he was eventually home schooled. lanza's mother was concerned about him. he would only communicate by e-mail though they were living in the same house. though nancy lanza was planning to buy her son a new pistol for christmas even though he disliked christmas and refused to put up a tree. his daughter was one of six adults killed along with 20 children. he read most of the report but chooses to remember lauren's bravery rather than learn any more about her killer. >> i'm proud of my daughter that she stood there in front of 15 little kids and took the bullets. that is amazing. i'm very proud of her. >> the full report that will be released later is several thousand pages long but he said
7:08 am
he won't be looking for it. he wants to move ahead remembering, instead, all the good things about his daughter's life. >> all right. thanks. our thought with the people in sandy hook and that area because that anniversary is coming up. thanks for your report. >> thank you. we'll move overseas now. natalie skovriis covering a meen afghanistan that has gotten tense. >> it has. it will would keep troops in afghanistan through 2014 is in jeopardy after a meeting between susan rice and the afghan president. nbc's chief foreign correspondence richard engle joins us from afghanistan with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. this is highly significant for the future of america's longest war and the future of afghanistan. susan rice was on this outpost meeting with u.s. commanders and then went to kabul for a dinner with president karzi.
7:09 am
the dinner didn't go well. the united states has already said it is willing to commit annually billions of dollars to the afghan economy to support the afghan security forces and potentially keep thousands of troops in this country after 2014. but karzi put new conditions. he said he won't sign the deal, at least not yet. he wants washington to help broker a deal with the taliban and said he won't sign it if a single american soldier enters another afghan home. this deal is in jeopardy and could mean no more american troops in afghanistan after 2014, natalie. >> tough situation on going there. richard engle, thank you so much. new clashes broke out monday night in ukraine's capitol between demonstrators and riot police. it came minutes after ukraine's president took to the air waves to explain his decision to reject trade pacts with the european union which he says was

7:12 am
i'll do it again. >> i guess you get what all the beeping is about. that's a red bellied black snake. it curled around to the passenger side window to say hello. eventually it did give up it's attempt to get a free ride. it did slither away. they were debating too much the humane thing to do. press the windshield wiper and get out of there. meanwhile, you have been spending a lot of time talking about this storm. tom costello has been in atlanta talking about it as well. apparently all the air time he has been getting is started to pay off. explain this. >> reporter: so last night i fly in from washington into atlanta and i walk into the hotel lobby wearing my nbc jacket and the very nice lady there says to me. i know you. is it al roker? >> oh, man. >> reporter: to which i replied, no, he's the one with the beard.
7:13 am
>> well played, tom. well played. >> loyal viewer. >> mr. roker, what's your forecast. >> unfortunately the other part of this system going to be the winds. especially here in the northeast. right now they're not too bad. but as the day progresses and this system intensifies look at how fast they start to pick up. by early tomorrow morning, 36 miles per hour -- these are sustained winds. nantucket 38 miles per hour. wind gusts 43 miles per hour as the day wears on. you can see that system now moving up and away. the winds start to die down a little bit but again it's still going to be pretty breezy and later on we'll take a look at the thanksgiving day forecast for you and you'll see what the thanksgiving day forecast for you and you'll see what we're talking about as far as have you heard what walmart's doing during black friday? they've got this 1-hour in-stock guarantee. so no more showing up for black friday and not getting the gifts i want like at other stores... i hate when that happens! over 20 awesome items are guaranteed...

7:15 am
case of rape involving high school football players in stuebenville ohio. here's john yang with the story. >> reporter: the attorney general announced four new indictments following an inquiry of a cover up of the rape of a 16-year-old. >> we're trying to hold adults accountable. that's what this is about. >> reporter: the school superintendent michael mcvey faces the most serious charges. felony counts of obstructing justice and tampering with evidence. the high school coach stands charged with failing to report child abuse. former volunteer assistant coach is charged with allowing underage drinking. and the principal is charged with failing to report child abuse but that's from an earlier accusation of rape of a
7:16 am
14-year-old which came to light after the high profile accusations. >> this began with a rape of a 16-year-old girl. a horrible crime of violence. but it also represents blurred, stretched and distorted boundaries of right and wrong. >> reporter: in march, two 17-year-old star high school football players were convicted of the rape. protestors said officials were trying to protect the city's beloved high school football team known as big red. late monday the stuebenville cool board put them on paid administrative leave. efforts to reach all three indicted in connection with the case were unsuccessful. at his news conference, he had a stern message for parents and educators. >> it's up to the adults to set boundaries. it's up to the adults to teach the kids right from wrong. >> reporter: a message he said applies not only to the ohio river city of stubenville but
7:17 am
all across the country. for today, john yang, nbc news, chicago. let's turn to tamron who is in the orange room for carson. she has new details on a story that got a lot of attention online. >> in fact, it's one of the most read stories on the new jersey waitress dana morales was expected a tip after serving a family of four last week. except she didn't receive one because she was a lesbian. donations came pouring in with people that wanted to support her but now the family claims they did leave a tip and they are disputing her story. >> reporter: it was a story that made national headlines. she claims a new jersey family denied her a tip earlier this month crossing out the tip amount space and writing i'm sorry because i cannot tip because i do not agree with your life style and how you live your
7:18 am
life. now a couple that claims that was their bill says they did not write that message and they did leave a tip, wnbc interviewed the couple that asked that their faces not be shown. they say their customer copy of the check proves morales version of the story doesn't end up. >> 100% you know that's your check? >> yeah, i can tell it's my name under the fuzzed out name. >> both copies of the check have the same date and time stamp but the totals are different. the couple says they left an $18 tip and even provide wnbc with the credit card stages showing the charges but morales is sticking with her story. >> they said it's possible you made this up because this isn't their handwriting and this isn't how they left the check. >> that's not my handwriting. i don't know, again. i don't know. >> so morales says she is donating most of the money she received to the wounded warrior fund and here, again, these are the receipts here.
7:19 am
you don't see carbon copies like you did back in the day. and in a statement to nbc they opened an internal investigation but in the meantime she still works there so we're ago people to go to our facebook page and weigh in on this. it's a tough one. i'm not asking you to say someone is telling the truth or not but what do you think given some of the facts that have come out and the details right now but it's tough because it's not a carbon copy. two separate receipts, the same transaction but i don't know. >> the legal investigator in savannah wants to know about the chain of command of custody -- >> the chain of custody. >> of the receipt. >> maybe a third party came in and wrote that note and took the tip. >> but here's the deal, guys, the tip is included on their credit card charge. so either someone fraudulently added money to their charge or it was there. >> i don't know. >> bizarre. >> tamron, thank you for the mystery. >> coming up, olympic skier bode miller forced to hand over his

with gold medal skier bode miller. he is hoping to compete in sochi but now he is in a fight for custody of his infant son. nbc's stephanie gosk has details on that. >> reporter: olympic skier bode miller clunched his nine month old nate as he walked into family court in new york city. >> what do you expect today? >> i hope the judge makes the right decision. >> reporter: but it was the child's mother she walked without the baby she calls sam. granted temporary custody as a complicated legal battle unfolds. the couple dated in california over a year ago when mckenna a former marine and firefighter, became pregnant. she claims the skier wanted nothing to do with the baby sending her a text that said you made this choice against my wish. seven months pregnant, the 27-year-old moved to new york city and enrolled in columbia university. when the baby was born, both parents fought for custody. the new york court called mckenna reprehensible for moving to the east coast while
7:33 am
pregnant. the court finding it unjustifiable conduct. a california family court was given jurisdiction. a controversial decision. >> when she moved to new york and the baby being born in new york, the jurisdiction certainly should be in new york. and what the family court judge did was he seeded jurisdiction to california. >> reporter: miller was granted custody. the downhill skier and his new wife volleyball player morgan beck regularly posted pictures of the baby but mckenna appealed the original ruling that sent the case to california and won. a panel of judges concluded she had every right to move to new york city while pregnant. the women's rights groups that backed her worried the case would set legal precedent for all pregnant women. >> the issue is whether a woman because she has exercised her fundamental rights to travel, to get an education can be denied access to a court of proper jurisdiction.
7:34 am
that she can be called a kidnapper. >> reporter: next month, both parents will be in court fighting for custody. their baby still caught in the middle. for "today," stephanie gosk, nbc news, new york. lisa bloom is today's legal analyst. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> let's talk with the simple idea of jurisdiction. mckenna moved to new york while she was pregnant. she had this baby here in new york. why would a new york family court seed jurisdiction to a california court? >> the lower court ruling from that judge is really disturbing. it says that she was irresponsible and reprehensible for appropriating the baby moving when she was pregnant and that the california court where bode miller already filed a case would have jurisdiction. as we know, that's now been overturned. jurisdiction is normally where the baby is born. >> let's go back to the statement you just eluded to. this new york court in issuing this decision on jurisdiction said that miss mcken was irresponsible and her actions
7:35 am
were reprehensible. women's group say that will set this back decades. give me your take on this. >> that's right. pregnant women don't have any legal obligation to get permission from the father of their baby before they travel. they have the same constitutional right to autonomy to move state-to-state as they wish. in this case, this is a very sympathetic young woman. she got a full scholarship to an ivy league university and she moved to new york for that purpose. >> but on the other hand, bode miller is the father of this child. does a court have, i guess, the requirement of protecting his father's rights location-wise and geographically. >> not to the extent of controlling where she lives. he certainly has the right and he probably will get joint custody to the child. that's how i expect this will turn out. he has the right to visit his child and see his child as much as possible. what he does not have is the right to control where the mother lives and especially when she is pregnant and that is when she moved. >> this case is getting a lot of attention because bode miller is
7:36 am
a high profile athlete. lisa, how will what happens in this case impact other cases like it around the country? >> well, it's already spawned a court of appeals decision in new york. new york is a state that typically sets precedent for many other states. people look to the decisions in new york. i think this is an important ruling for the rights of pregnant women. >> lisa bloom, thanks for your opinions on this. i appreciate it. >> thank you. let's turn to al who is mr. busy with all the weather. >> that's right. we have been talking about rain and snow and we're also concerned about ice out of this system. you can already see the heavy showers and the heavy thunderstorms but this pink to purplish is icing and that's going to be a big, big problem. in fact, you can see rainfall amounts anywhere from up to four to five inches in the southeast. you get into the northeast from central new york into western new york and pennsylvania, anywhere from 6 inches of snow
7:37 am
to 18 inches of snow but, boy, look at this, from new england all the way into the mid-part of the northeast, we're looking at anywhere from .10 inch of ice to a half than inch of ice. a quart of an inch it's a nuisance. a quarter inch to half inch tree slims sag or break. you start to see power outages. more than that it is crippling. widespread tree and power line damages, roads become impassable and the power outages can last for a long, long 7:37. happy tuesday morning to you. i'm meteorologist christina loren. taking a live look at san francisco, plenty of mid level and high clouds streaming in. ahead of an area of low pressure that's going to bring us showers not until thanksgiving day. temperatures are chilly. grab your coat. we're going to see a sunny finish. in the mid-60s by this afternoon so looking good there.

>> it's a good time to try to save you money at home. we have thanksgiving coming up and black friday and cyber monday. the crooks are out there looking to pounce. >> you identified three schemes. the first has to do with gift cards. how does it work. >> gift cards, hugely popular this year. retailers expect 80% of us will buy gift cards. there's this scam i've not even heard about before. what thieves do is -- when you go to the store all the gift cards are sitting on the counter for you to buy. here's the gift card. what the thieves are doing is going up to the counter and flipping the gift card around and you'll see right here most of them have a scratch box, a scratch off box right here. there's a code under there for activation. the thieves are scratching it off like that and writing down the codes for a lot of these cards, putting them back on the wrack. then you buy it. you're so nice, you give it to me. i buy it. i activate the card and the thieves are calling the 100 number.

8:34 am
richard dreyfuss is shining a light on bipolar disorder. thank you for being here. how are you doing? >> how are you? >> i'm good. you talk about your childhood and say you went through a huge portion of your life extremely happy going from thrill to thrill in a manic state. >> i didn't know it was a manic state. i just thought i was really happy and everything that was bad i turned to good. >> how did you do that? i think a lot of people would love advice on that. >> well, i was in love with a girl for 20 years and she wasn't in love with me. so i turned that loss into romeo and juliet and i was in love with the loss. >> you felt normal. did the people around you think you were behaving normally?
8:35 am
>> most of the time, yes. but then every once in awhile when i was talking i would find myself getting up and talking louder and faster and louder and faster until my friends would say okay, okay. let's get the big circus cables and throw them around his ankles and pull him gently back to earth. >> at what stage in your life did you receive a diagnosis? somebody put a label on what you were living with? >> that experience of jumping out of my chair and talking and talking well was not in my control. so when i was about 19 i went to therapy. which is a misnamed thing. she should have called it counselling because therapy shares the dea scares the death out of people. >> did it shock you or did you like finally having a reason for some of your behavior? >> it took away all of my guilt
8:36 am
because i found out that it wasn't my behavior, it was something i was born with. so i didn't feel shame or guilt, it's like being ashamed that you have -- you're 5'6" or something. it's just part of me. so it took away that. and i hadn't felt any depression except for the depression that you feel the night before a test when you haven't read the book. >> right. >> that i felt. other than that, nothing. >> in reading about you, one thing jumped out at me. there was a time you were on a medication and it was working extremely well for you and the company that made the medication stopped making it. >> yes. >> i can only imagine the anxiety that would create. >> i remember because they didn't tell anyone that for the last three years the pharmacists had been getting it out of ware houses and then one day they said they didn't make it anymore. so i wrote the head of the company, the most sincere letter
8:37 am
he has ever gotten and he called me and he said i know we have left 3,000 people hanging in midair but there was just no profit in it. and i said do you hear what you're saying? and that was that. it was gone. >> you've since found, it took awhile i know, a medication or a combination that works for you. any side effects of those medications? >> no. >> i'll set them up, you kick them through. what do you want people to know? you talk about stigma. you say there shouldn't even be the word stigma associated with this. >> stigma is silly. stigma is stupid. stigma is what other people think about you and i first of all don't know anyone who is normal. everyone has something. and i come from hollywood, so no one even argues the point. so stigma is a word that should be kicked away and shame and guilt because it's a condition.
8:38 am
and what they should do is do more research, of which right now there is very little, and the organization that brought me here is called -- it's called the depression research foundation and they do innovative really cutting edge stuff. but for the most part there's no research going on by the government or anybody and so i'm personally not in a hurry to get rid of my condition but most people are. >> but the fact that you're speaking out about it is going to do a lot of good for a lot of people. >> or it's going to be very bad because i might be known as the actor for a mental illness in which case i'll never work again. >> i doubt it. richard dreyfuss, it's always good to have you here. thank you for being so frank. >> up next, jane pauly on a new way to live for the 50-plus set. but first, this is "today" on

8:42 am
areas for eating, reading, and enjoying each other's company and they have for nine years. it was karen's idea. she was still in her 50s but thinking ahead. >> i had just finished renovating a really beautiful little white cottage that i loved, but i began thinking when i was in my 70s, retired, that would be a rather solitary and perhaps lonely way to live. >> reporter: but it was such a good idea, they decided, why wait? >> we could save so much money, have a really fun time and support each other living in a little community. >> why not now? >> why not now? >> i have saved way more for retirement than i would have been able to do if i were still living alone. >> so none of you were then retired. >> oh, we're not retired. >> gene is a registered no, sir. karen a corporate consultant. louise is a clinical
8:43 am
psychologist. she has the biggest room because she didn't need an office. gene has a suite on the third floor and karen's two rooms are separated by a bath. >> end table, coffee table, the corner cupboard, the antique table back there. this is my lamp and all the pottery is mine. >> that painting we actually bought together. >> reporter: but blending three households wasn't as easy as it looks. they have written a how-to book. >> what if somebody wants to leave? what if you want somebody to leave? >> we have it covered legally. >> what happens if one of you died? >> we each have life insurance policy with the other two as the beneficiaries. we knew we had to be prudent. so we did cover all the ugly possibilities we could think of. >> no guest will stay longer than seven consecutive nights or more than 21 total days in a
8:44 am
year. >> reporter: co-owning, intentional communities, cooperative living. it's a growing phenomenon. >> i like to say the boomers are the innovators of the generation. people are healthier, happier, live longer and live better when they live with other people. so the longer that we can live on our own happily, safely. >> takes three to change the light bulb. >> how great to come home and know there's someone there. >> absolutely and the lights are on. little things like that. >> reporter: that make a house a home. there are a growing number of online resources and home sharing networks to find people who might -- you might want to live with and who might want to live with you. and there are a lot of big houses just sitting on the market now. the reality check. you'll need some lawyering and
8:45 am
good adds advivisors before you decorating. join me and tell me what you think of cooperative housing at 55. >> i think it's a great idea. how fun would that be? >> that would be great fun if they wanted -- i got the good housekeeping award in college and they were kidding. >> i was going to say this is my way of asking you. maybe we can be roomies later in life. i think we could have fun. i'm not the best at cleaning but it's fine. >> we're a match then. >> we're perfectly matched. jane, thank you. coming up next, kelly clarkson is here and she's going to get us in a holiday spirit with a special live performance. but first, this is "today" on nbc.

>> 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. and welcome to today on this tuesday morning, november 26th, 2013. another great crowd outside on the plaza this morning. i'm willie geist along with al roker and natalie morales. a lot of people in town to see the parade. >> yes. >> starting to get a little worried about the weather on parade day. >> well, we have to get to parade day first. tomorrow is going to be a huge, huge travel day. we're going to detail it coming up. but the big thing i'm concerned about right now there's a huge icing area that may kick in from
9:01 am
interior parts of new york all the way down and a quarter of an inch of ice or so. that's going to make roads rough. western new york, western pennsylvania heavy snow and along the coast we're talking about a lot of rain. so major hubs are going to be effected tomorrow. today on into tomorrow. >> a lot of people are trying to get out early. whether today or early tomorrow. storm hit new york and threatens to put a damper on the macy's thanksgiving day parade. we don't know yet but they'll decide on thursday morning. >> well, winds have to be -- sustained winds have to be 23 miles per hour or higher. wind gusts of 34 miles per hour to ground the balloons. i think the winds are going to stay below that threshold and for safety sake even if they don't make that threshold they may bring the balloons lower but they'll make a determination on site thursday morning. >> interesting that ray kelly, the new york police commissioner was saying they were going to have one police officer per balloon to be able to make sure
9:02 am
that -- there are 16 balloons in the parade to make sure they're all covered and have control assuming they get to be hoisted. >> let's hope they fly low. a couple of airlines are stepping up, delta, u.s. airlines, jet blue have to fly through the region. >> might want to check the fine print. >> the big problem is all the airlines are flying if not 100% full, pretty close to it. so trying to get on flight is really going to be an issue. it's interesting. >> we'll have some of the maps coming up later. we'll stay on this for you. a lot of people are traveling today and tomorrow. we'll be on it for you. yesterday, the president of the united states was making a speech in san francisco. he was confronted by a heckler. san francisco, usually friendly territory for the democratic president had an audience he thought of supporters. >> there's an immigration
9:03 am
speech. >> that's right. >> there was a man in the audience that had an outburst, was angry over the number of deportations since president obama has taken office. take a look at the exchange. >> most importantly we will live up -- most importantly we will live up -- >> families are separated -- >> most importantly we will live up to our character as a nation. >> families are separated. i need your help -- >> let me finish. no, no, he can stay there. the easy way out is to try to yell and pretend like i can do something by violating our laws. and what i'm proposing is the harder path which is to use our democratic processes to achieve the same goal that you want to achieve but it won't be as easy as just shouting. it requires us lobbying and getting it done. >> so the man was a 24-year-old immigrant from south korea. he was a graduate of cal berkeley.
9:04 am
he was there. they vet these crowds pretty well typically. this was a rally. >> he was right behind the president. >> right. he was speaking for a lot of people that had been detained and couldn't speak up. >> i think that the president handled it well by engaging and saying let me answer his questions and his concerns. this is the way sometimes you have to handle it. let me take it head on and make the comments i need to make but address the issue at large here which is in this case immigration. with obama care and so much focus on that, immigration has been forgotten. >> put on the back burner. >> the president's argument was i can't wave the magic wand and make this go away. but he did do that for the younger dreamers. there's a whole dialogue in there. the first lady michelle obama talking about how they celebrate the holiday season in lady's home journal on stands today. she talks about her holiday play list which includes favorites,
9:05 am
mariah carey and nat king cole. >> top on my play list. >> all i want for christmas is you. as far as a religious christmas carol, hark the herald angels sing and i love it from charlie brown christmas. >> you have two off the first lady's list. >> you have one also on my list that i love. >> the little drummer boy. the version where it's bing crosby and david bowie. the video is surreal too. >> their voices just meld so perfectly together. it's beautiful. >> never gets old and springsteen's merry christmas, baby. >> yeah. i love that. >> it's not even thanksgiving
9:06 am
and i'm ready. >> you're going to hear it over and over and it's never stopping. >> all holidays all the time. >> i do love it, though. >> yeah, it's good. so this is interesting. i wonder if either of you have done this. more than 23% of winning offers for homes included a personal letter from the buyer to the seller. that's according to agencies. sometimes homeowners will accept less money from a potential buyer because they got a letter from someone that says i'm going to take care of your house and nurture your house and respect your house. >> we're going to have all the memories you want us to have in your house. >> you send a personal letter and you hope that that puts you over the top in their eyes. in the homeowners eyes. >> the home that we're in right now was two elderly sisters who had grown up in this house and a couple of families had bid and they wanted to meet the family. they were from england. they no idea who i was.
9:07 am
lela put it over the top. they wanted to make sure that another family with children would grow up and have the same memories in their house. >> she was the closer. >> bring the baby. >> she came in from the bull pen and closed it. >> she shut it down. >> that's my girl. >> but i guess the question in this is would you really shave money off the price? it's a nice thing and i would do it as well. >> if you had two very close bids. but one was maybe $10,000 less on your home but they wrote you the sweetest letter and they had beautiful kids that kind of looked like your kids, wouldn't you pick that family? >> yeah, if the difference was that slight, probably. >> yeah. it's like, yeah. >> it's nice. >> you want them to have the same memories and to know that this is a house that our family loved and we're passing it on to another family that's going to love it. >> nice. >> well, in a completely unrelated story. >> wow. >> completely unrelated. >> there was a snake on a windshield of a car. >> where is samuel l. jackson
9:08 am
when you need him? >> i don't want to hurt him? will it hurt him? >> no. >> oh my god. oh [ bleep ]. holy [ bleep ]. watch this. i'm going to do it again. >> they were a little unsure what to do because they were worried about hurting the snake too. >> that was nice. >> very nice. >> this is a venomous snake so i'm not so worried about keeping it alive. >> get that wiper fluid. >> wow. >> just slitherred away. >> we have winter storm watches, winter storm warnings. winter weather advisories. at some point, 32 states
9:09 am
involved in this thing. 200 million people going to be effected by this. you can see this area of purple and pink. that's the freezing rain. the icing conditions. heavy showers and thunderstorms getting together. so this is all making its way up to the north. this morning, you could see the heavy rain in the southeast. this storm is going to develop and come out of the gulf and bring a lot of moisture. you can see snow wrapping around this system. we're going to be looking at wind gusts by tomorrow morning. about 50 miles per hour. it's going to wreak havoc with the airports from washington, new york, boston, philadelphia. lake effect snow going to be setting in and, in fact, you can see basically anywhere from two to three inches of rain setting up. but we're also talking about snow. if you're thinking of driving from the east coast on into the west and upper midwest, syracuse, eerie, pennsylvania, cleveland, ohio, pittsburgh. you can be looking from three inches of snow to a foot of snow with blinding winds.
9:10 am
it's going to be very, very difficult. this all lifts up and out by wednesday night but the damage 9:10. happy tuesday morning. meter olgts christina loren. this is san francisco high and midlevel clouds working into the bay area. this will be the case for today. the clouds really thicken up in the second half of the day, but it's mostly cloudy across the board. temperatures right now mostly in the 50s. good-looking day shaping up. we're going to cleem out of the 50s into the mid 60s. south bay looking good at 66 degrees. san jose. 64 in the mission district of san francisco. up the north bay comfortable conditions. santa rosa, 66 for this afternoon. and that's your latest weather. >> all right, al. thanks a lot. coming up next in our series thanks and giving.

it's our annual week of thanks and giving where we highlight the work of st. jude's children's hospital. >> a young athlete that refused to let cancer keep her from following her passion. >> she was a talented gymnast when she was diagnosed with leukemia. with the right treatment and a persevering spirit she is bouncing back strong. >> kate foster spent much of her waking life in the gym. >> i was at the gym like 20 hours a week. you repeat the skills over and over and over again to get them perfect. >> between gymnastics and cross fit workouts with her family, this dynamo was a picture of health. but suddenly a mysterious illness slowed her down. >> we had her tested for all kinds of things. diabetes, mono, nothing. they couldn't find anything wrong with her. >> eventually an unexpected diagnosis. a cancer of the blood and bone marrow called myeloid leukemia. >> my initial response was no
9:15 am
way. this can't be. how could that happen? we thought all kinds of things could be wrong with her but cancer never entered our minds. >> when i did find out it was a cancer, i still didn't know what that meant. it just sort of seems apart from my life. >> instantly, kate traded the gym for the hospital. one month into chemotherapy and more bad news. an infection in kate's knee meant her leg would have to be amputated on the same day as her bone marrow transplant. >> actually i told them no. my parents told them no quite a few times too although in our heads we all knee it was going to happen and that is what needed to happen. it was a leg or a life. >> reporter: kate went into remission and things looked better. kate became an ambassador for cross fit and continued to exercise. but the cancer returned. >> the relapse was devastating. it was out of the blue.
9:16 am
we were shocked. the doctors were shocked. she had been doing so well. >> reporter: kate's families weighed their options and st. jude's won out. >> there was a study at st. jude and that's what we decided to do. going into it, what we wanted to do most of all was anything different. anything above and beyond that we hadn't done the first time since we thought we had nailed it then. >> reporter: kate took part in a clinical trial for a new medication. >> the treatment that kate got at st. jude was designed specifically for patients who get a second transplant to do another high intensity transplant is very dangerous. so we were looking at ways to give less toxic chemotherapy and still get enough leukemia to have success. >> after four months receiving treatment at st. jude, kate returned home at illinois. she began her freshman year of high school cancer free. >> it never occurred to me that i might not come back.
9:17 am
it was auld kind of i'm going to go back. what am i going to do when i go back? >> reporter: with the support of her family kate is back at it rebuilding her strength and standing tall as she prepares to compete once again. >> i wanted to be doing gymnastics. i wanted to be at school. i wanted to be learning. i wanted to be learning out. all of those kind of little things that you don't realize until you can't have them. >> what a great story. >> incredible girl. >> kate couldn't be here with us this morning because she and her family are on a special trip to australia that was made possible by the make a wish foundation. >> marlowe thomas is the national outreach director of st. jude's children's hospital. good to see you. >> thank you. >> thank you for this opportunity to shine a light on all the work you all do at that hospital. we love having you there every year. >> thank you. >> what would you say as we watch this story and the others you bring us every year, what's the st. jude's difference?
9:18 am
why do people come to this particular hospital? >> what's fascinating is she benefitted from our project. and she benefitted from that. we targeted her cancer with a brand new drug that we have never used before for aml. and it's fascinating because we can see this kind of reaction this quickly from our project. it was also interesting about st. jude that she is now in remission, thank god. and thank god she never leaves remission but we're ready. we know what we're going to do next. we're going to do a program next if this doesn't work. that's what is different about st. jude. we have it all lined up. we know exactly where we're going next. >> what difference has st. jude made in fighting childhood cancers? >> aml is a much more difficult cancer than all. a.l.l. we have a 90% survival rate.

little people to learn how to behave. i remember watching them play. cody had his gi joe guys and kathy would have her barbies. at the end of lunch cody's guys would be dead and kathy's people would be matched up and be in love. they were in their own creative world. i was at a lovely, lovely -- two families having lunch as well. i saw something that i've never, ever seen before. it was every child had on headphones and their own ipad through the entire lunch. the food came and they ate with this. >> with the headphones on? >> yeah. i -- i'm not judging at all what the parents are doing, i just thought -- i remember thinking, oh, my gosh, how life has changed so much. and i treasure those lunches i had with my kids where they would talk and i didn't lose --
10:04 am
you lose them so soon anyway. i think places like college, boyfriends, cars and things. i want to hold my kids as close as long as i can. >> right. right. >> i understand why it's great for the parents because then they can talk and chat and fun for the kids, they don't have to -- >> i think it should be -- it's not -- like i get why sometimes parents need quiet time and they want their child to do their thing. i think once the food is served, the headphones should come off, ipads down, you should have conversation. but i do think there's something weird that's happening. you can see with kids and ipads and headphones and even i'm sorry even grownups with headphones, you walk down and i feel so sorry for flight attendants. would you like something to drink? what? what? >> everybody is in their own little world. it's something we can control. the world is just such a mess and everything is going down the toy toy. you want to control one little -- one piece of the earth, one piece of the nether world.
10:05 am
>> you walk down the street and someone is listening to music and they knock into you. i bumped into someone and said i'm sorry. they're so lost, they didn't know that i hit them accidentally. >> like that girl on the basketball court. whoosh. yeah, i don't know. i would love to hear how you feel about it. i'm not judging, i'm saying this is how much -- we had a segment on a couple years ago where we talked about we now live in what's called a post modern society. for the first time ever in the history of civilization, we are more comfortable with technology than we are with other human beings. i think that's ultimately a dangerous think thing. >> you see it in how kids are dating. now it's a text and a text and a text and an e-mail. then when you finally get the phone call, the real contact, even that's a big deal. >> they don't know how to actually talk to each other when they go on a date? >> i don't know. i don't know. >> anyway, boy, am i old. anyway, yesterday, you want to feel grateful. first of all, the thing i don't

10:31 am
together. he changes the subject each time i bring it -- bring up family. he seems very hesitant. what should she do? >> i think firstly family seems important to her and it seems less important to him. that could be for one of a few reasons. the worst reason that she would want to hear is that he's not really committed. he's not really house hunting with her, he's just going through the experience of looking at houses. >> a mortgage is one thing. >> he's not actually going to do it and, therefore, he's not meeting the family either because he's -- he's lazy. if he's across the country, there's another part that might not want to do it. still not a good sign. laziness can come down to it, too. >> he can be estranged from his family. she would have known that in the two years. >> even if he's not close to his family, you'd think he would want to meet her family. my big question to her is why are you asking me? ask the guy. she keeps asking him, do you want to come meet my family,
10:32 am
should we meet each other's families. if he keeps avoiding the subject start talking about that. look, is this family thing making you uncomfortable? if so, why? people don't give other people enough credit for giving them honest answers. if you ask the guy, a lot of times he'll tell you. >> that was a smart -- >> good, matthew. >> next question, ladies. >> ann is going to ask her own question on skype. >> we hope. >> hi, ann. >> hi. >> of course she is. it's working, yeah! >> hi, ann. >> hi. >> what's your question, hon. >> i recently celebrated my 31st birthday. i have a great life, amazing family and friends but the one thing i focus on is that i don't have anyone to share my life with. i think when i go on dates or meet men i try to rush things and force it to work and i just want to get to a place where i'm happy being single and can go on and how do i do that? >> good question. yeah. >> good for you for your honesty, sweetie. i think that's great. >> ann, it sounds like right now
10:33 am
you associate pain with being single and pleasure with being in a relationship, right? what is it you're looking for for a relationship? what will it give you that you don't have now? >> i guess i just feel to have someone to share my life with. you know, during the holidays and things like that, it just seems like it would be nice to have someone to celebrate these things with. >> i think right now there are many people in your life you can celebrate those things with. it doesn't have to be that one special someone. i also think that tendency to rush things because you want the result is the exact thing that scares guys off, right? so the way to not rush it is to say to yourself instead, okay, what is it i really want in a guy because i'm sure there are many things you want in a relationship but when you meet someone after five minutes you begin projecting the relationship you think it is rather than the relationship you actually have. see, in the dating stage, it's one of those rare times where -- it's one of the only times where we're the buyer and the seller
10:34 am
at the same time. right now you're thinking of yourself as the siller. will he want me? will he want me? i've got to make myself good enough. i want you to remember you're the buyer as well. when you're in the early stages of dating, you're judging whether he's right for you. you won't know that in the first day, the first week or the first three months necessarily. you're going to know by what he does for you and that's something only time can tell. stop making yourself more desperate than you actually are. >> yeah. >> great advice. >> a lot of it is pressure from your loved ones, families. you're 31, not married, not having children. do you feel a lot of that, sweetie, so it's coming from outside pressures? >> i do, yes. definitely. >> here's the thing i'll say, ann. relationships are a beautiful thing. if you're not enough with one, you're not enough with one. >> give it up for matthew. can we find a better way to skype? >> why, crane your neck like that. it's excellent. >> love you, matthew. >> you rocked it.
