Becky talks about the recent wildfire in Colorado that devastated multiple communities and destroyed over 1,000 homes. Dan looks at the multiple winter storms that swept across the country and ended up stranding thousands of motorists on a major highway for over 24 hours.

Here’s a link to winter car survival kit ideas you should pack and keep with you.

Dr. Joe gives us a COVID update with numbers from his work in Memphis, Tennessee. He foresees a continued spike in hospitalizations. This corresponds with reports from co-host Sam Bradley, who is working with an EMS staffing company in Louisiana to manage surging cases there that threaten to overwhelm hospital and ambulance systems. Becky found us this link to the Project N95 site that helps sort through counterfeit safety masks.
