5:16 am
into a tropical storm and perhaps make a landfall sometimes thursday night and from there it lifts northward -- it looks like it will be heading safely to the south. however the computer models are trending west because this upper-level jetstream wind is going to be relaxing and it will allow us to meander north and west until the end of the upcoming holiday weekend. be some on the beaches but we could get into some rain and we will keep you posted. meantime, it is swimmingly clear. it is starting to get sticky of with that southwesterly wind and it is starting to get uncomfortable on the cape, coming out ahead of the cold front.

5:21 am
70 two cups of the popcorn, but you save money. 56 cents versus 28. choices like that can add up, and as the school of nutrition at tufts university spelled out in this guide to packing lunch, so can choices like these. a piece of fruit three times a week instead of individual fruit cups. you save $37 a year. a homemade lunch instead of pre-packed twice a week saves $95 a year. packing in a reusable container instead of 2 sandwich baggies a day saves $11. not a ton, but it saves the planet too. >> the initial cost is a little bit but they keep going. it really is very low cost, noncontributing to landfill. erika: another biggie is have kids bring their own water bottle. compare that to bottled sports drinks or juices and the savings is more than $100 a year. all of that can really add up.
