Can You Spare A Square?

From right, KXLY personalities Kris Crocker, Mike Gonzalez and Nadine Woodward promote the station's 3rd Annual Spare a Square toilet paper drive Friday and Saturday. KXLY is teaming up with Project Beauty Share and Northwest Harvest for the drive. More information here. The annual event, of course, takes its name from the famous “Seinfeld” skit involving one of Jerry's girlfriends refusing to spare a square of toilet paper with Elaine, who was paperless in the next stall.

Question: Do we have any event like this in North Idaho?

Kris: Taking Warm Buns Too Far

On her Facebook page, KXLY weathercaster Kris Crocker writes: “Just in time for the cold weather, the seat heater in my car burned a hole all the way through the leather of my seat. I wasn't expecting that. I'm all for warm buns, but GEEZ.”

Question: Has something gone wrong that makes you less ready for winter?

Kris: Predicting Triple Digits: 666?

On her Facebook wall, weather woman Kris Crocker of KXLY writes: “ABC is featuring a show tonight about … gulp … exorcism, and it's right before the news. I wonder what kind of audience is going to be sticking around for the 11 o'clock news. Should I freak them out and forecast 666 for tomorrow?” Kris is talking about a two-part segment on “Nightline” tonight that focuses on casting out demons & a pastor who believes we all carry around demons here.

Question: Do you believe in demons or exorcism?

Crocker: 2nd Coldest April Ever

It was a 2nd place finish in a race most Inland Northwesterners wanted to avoid.   Spokane was just one degree away from clinching the record for the coldest April in history.   The average high temperature for April 2011 was 41.5 degrees, which is 5 degrees below average.  The record of 40.6 dates back to 1955.  Both 1955 and 2011 were La Nina years.  La Nina is the abnormal cooling of the sea-surface temperatures in the equatorial Pacific, which has been influencing our weather pattern since late Fall of 2010.   New record low montly average temperatures were set at Coeur d'Alene, Ephrata, Ritzville and Wenatchee/Kris Crocker, KXLY.

Question: How are you handling the continued cold?
