7:38 am
carefully, if there had been an uncle or aunt with no direct blood relationship, there might have been incest. not with regard to a daughter or -- i'm sorry. any way. it's bizarre. the ins and outs of florida incest law. something i'm in the an expert in. >> dan, thank you. let's get weather from sam champion. >> legal information i never thought i would be able to use in a conversation. the storms rolling. if you get 14 inches in denver, the biggest february snowstorm ever. 24 inches? you jump right into the fourth biggest snowstorm in denver history. take the whole winter and account for that. the low, as it spins out, rough weather ahead of it. running into warm air, it's all rain. no concern that the snow gets out of that blizzard condition temperatures are in the 30's

8:32 am
emotional abecame. it with auz passion project for you, wasn't it? >> it was. i did it a long time ago, off broadway in the beginning of my career. there was something about the character of albert that just fascinated me. >> what do you thing that was? >> i think it is her combination of brave belief and innocence. and also as an actress, i was fascinated by what would it be like to be invisible for 30 years and then try to come out of that? you know, what are those dynamics, what is that psychology? >> you said 30 years ago, you could not have probably brought to it the big screen as you did. >> i had only done -- i think ied a filmed "the world according to garp." i don't think it had come out yet. i didn't know the languages of film. the challenges of albert benefited by my 30 years of
