    An unknown white powder has been found at hotels near the site of the Super Bowl, New Jersey authorities said today, and hazardous materials teams and a bomb squad have responded.

    In New York, authorities also were investigating the contents of a letter sent to the Manhattan office of former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, two law enforcement officials said.

    The letter, opened in the mail room, contained white powder, according to law enforcement officials.

    In New Jersey, the site of Sunday's Super Bowl, an unidentified substance was delivered to two hotels in Carlstadt and one in East Rutherford, said Jeanne Baratta, chief of staff at the Bergen County Executive's Office.

    Happy Super Friday, everyone!! Our temps just got to 33 degrees this morning, woo hoo, first day past freezing in a long time. Sunday is expected to be in the 40's, nice for a change.

    Good morning all from the snow globe that is Denver this morning...We had an AleeD kind of night, with snowfall from eight to eleven inches, with more in the mountains. Commute was rough, but I left that house at 4:30, so no issues...

    How is everyone doing today?

        I wish...Actually caught part of Letterman last night, but was wide awake by three. Given that the local news was talking about the snow by four, I figured an early start was warranted...

  11. AleeD® @ Kat & SLT

    Ladies, any clue as to what's going on with the myriad roboposts lately? Seems like posts like those from NYC Fitness Events & DMN are more prevalent than usual. Are they keeping others from posting? Is there a connection between this and some of our "post" buttons going MIA?

    Inquiring minds wanna know. :)

        Funny thing (and I have a request in for dealing with this) - the button is actually there, but you just can't see it. Put your cursor in the general area and it'll work.

      OMG, it is insane there right now. Lots of my colleagues slept in the basement of the adjacent hotel and some abandoned their cars after driving for 8 hours. I hope it's better by the time you get there.

      Is there a particular kind of food you love? I'm current enamored of The Optimist, Abbatoir and Empire State South, but there's so much stuff on Buford Highway and all around the city.

      January 29, 2014 at 9:25 am |

        I'm sure the Omni was hopping.

        Thanks for the food reccos, I'll keep you posted.

          Saw a picture of a car in the ditch down south this morning. Saw more grass than I did snow, lol

          To those not prepared, playing just the tip can cause big trouble even if its only an inch.

          Its more ice than snow. Black ice, that then gets a little dusting on top to hide it and its game over. Its like driving on a slip and slide.

    I just love it when the high for the day hits right before sunrise. Grrr ... rather Brrr. ;)

    An example of "Be careful what you wish for" –
    SIL called last nite complaining about the whether where she lives in Floriduh's Panhandle. Formerly from the New England area, she said, "If it's going to be this cold and nasty, it should be snowing." Lo' & behold, overnight she got her wish. Mwah-ha-ha-ha!

    This more than proves the point that the Panhandle of Floriduh isn't really part of the Sunshine state. It's actually part of Alabama & Georgia, but someone drew the borderline wrong.

    Good morning to all. Hope you're staying warm and dry thru this nasty Winter.

    Due to unusually high fear and apathy, the Seattle Seahawks have decided to not play in this Sunday's Super Bowl. When reached for comment, Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman stated "Well, we are just afraid. Afraid of getting hurt, and maybe getting dirty.

    Happy Monday, everyone! Was that the lamest Pro Bowl ever or what?

    The commentators were saying at the end that the NFL wanted to end the tradition but decided on this new approach instead. I say just name the guys as Pro's, give them each some extra $$ and lots of advertising, and move on.

    How was the weekend? It was snowy here on Saturday and dreary yesterday. Dreary again today. I see our friends in the SE are going to have some weather fun this week, I hope everyone stays warm and safe!
