Yes, it's bone-chilling cold in the South.

But it's cold all over the country.


Rough Flu Season Ahead

It's already bad in some places and it looks like it will get worse.

Health officials on Monday said suspected flu cases have jumped in five Southern states, and the primary strain circulating tends to make people sicker than other types. It is particularly hard on the elderly.


4.3 Magnitude Earthquake Hits Kentucky

The U.S. Geological Survey reported Saturday that an earthquake centred in Kentucky also rattled at least eight other states.

The USGS website said the epicenter of the 4.3 magnitude earthquake on Saturday afternoon was about 10 miles west of Whitesburg, near the Virginia line. Residents in both states, as well as West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Indiana, Ohio and Georgia, all the way to Atlanta also reported feeling the temblor.

National Weather Service spokesman Jeff Carico said employees at the office in Jackson, Kentucky, which is about 60 miles northwest of Whitesburg, felt the ground shake for about 15 seconds. He says the office has gotten numerous calls, but so far no one has reported any serious damage.

USGS geophysicist John Bellini said the quake is considered "light."


College Basketball Play of the Day for 3/23/12

In this day of Sweet 16 matchups, it has to be Kentucky

Kentucky heads into this game with Indiana, not only looking to avenge a loss to the Hoosiers earlier in the season, but to continue proving they are the best college team in America.

I'm seeing Kentucky favored by 9, but look for the Wildcats to eclipse that in the first half.

Here are two noteworthy trends:

Kentuck is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 NCAA Tournament games as a favorite, while Indiana is 5-13-1 ATS in their last 19 neutral site games.

Go with Kentucky for a big win tonight.
