>> good morning. we're starting you off with a live view from the skycam. you can see all the rain drops on the camera right now from a bit of the mist we had over the morning hours. 59 the current temperature at b.w.i. marshall. the humid humidity up to 896%. it is the on-shore flow that continues to bring us all the cloud cover and a bit of a drizzle as you start out this morning. looking at the satellite picture, you can see the clouds pushing into western maryland through pen not as well. this will be the trend throughout much of your sunday. we will have a hard time breaking free from clouds and seeing any sun today. unlike yesterday where it started off sunny, today will be a mostly cloudy day. we have an area of low pressure down near the carolinas right off the coast. this counter clock wise flow is
helping to bring that on-shore flow into the mid-atlantic. high pressure will eventually try to mike its way down into the region, but until then we're dealing with on-shore flow keeping us dreary. here's the next storm we're tracking. this will affect us the next couple days. right now bringing us showers and thunderstorms from nebraska up to wisconsin and it will march east tuesday into wednesday. that's when we have the better rain chances. as for the forecast today, light rain. if you encounter rain this morning, it is the fog and drizzle. that should start to clear out of baltimore by 10:00 a.m. we will see mostly cloudy skies into the afternoon. just a few peeks of sunshine expected later today, so our temperatures are cool. only in the upper 60's to low 70's. some areas in the state stay locked in cloud cover. even the eastern shore, they are only in the mid to low 60's. they could see the fog and

they come in all shapes and sizes. the author of a book "i didn't sign up for this." seven strategies for dealing with difficulty in difficult times. you know what, >> i wrote this book not just because of bullies. pullies are one type of difficulty. the reason bullies are frustrating for us is because their need for control is so strong that they try to dominate everyone and everything. internally they feel a lack of control. this is the place they operate and move from. we have to look at some strategies for being able to deal with that strong need for control. >> let's look at these things. one of the things, you have to beat the bully at his own game. >> one simple thing you can start to do is get beyond
defensiveness. so the bullies oftentimes, want you to be in a very defensive position. so when i say "get beyond defensiveness" somebody says why didn't you do that? if you said something like well, what if i did? in other words, you are not constantly defending yourself, so from that position you are not always trying to fight the bully. most people fight the bully or become very passive with the bully and those are losing propositions. >> you say get to disengagement. >> yes, the bully wants you to engage so he can over-power you. in many cases i tell my clients who i coach, don't respond to the e-mail. once you do that, now you are back and forth with the bully. don't respond to them at their game. the other thing you want to do, if you are in an organization, get help. that may be legal help. you might want to go to the h.r. department. that's important. you also, if you need to, you want to depet -- get out of a
situation. don't find yourself engaged with a bully. get out. leave if you need to. there is no reason why you need to stay in it. and the other thing, one more thing you can do, is there a place two fingers below your belly button. if you focus right there, just think about that place. that will actually strengthen your inner resolve. we have all had times when we were strong, and we have had times when we were weak. want to be strong in the face of the bully so the bully does not look to victimize you. he or she will go somewhere else. we also want to look at the expectations we have around these things. people can find that they expect the bully to be different than they are. letting go of expectations, really important. if people want to know how they can let go of expectations, they go to my web site. >> what about, you know, mean
kids, they grow up to be mean adults? >> they can, yes. but the idea is, how you are is how you teach the bully to be with you. so you have to be strong, and really in your body and in your being so the bully does not look to tear you apart. you have to think of bull liz like animals. they look for that weakness in the prey. they look for a place of vullnerability. you have to be strong. you find that inner strength and then the bully will go somewhere else. >> they really will. >> sandra crow.com. >> the book is "i didn't sign up for this. seven strategies for dealing with difficulty in difficult times." and the web site is sandracrow.com. >> coming up, a pet looking for a good home. first a look at last night's winning lottery numbers. ♪
