Because of the accident on I-90 yesterday, we’ve pushed back our plans on the earwig story.  However, thank you for those who left comment on the last blog.  We realize the interest in these bugs — mainly, how to get rid of them.  It’s in the planner for today, so hopefully it all works out.

On that note, we’re going to talk to those who enforce trucking rules.  Authorities say the driver of the semi fell asleep at the wheel, so we’ll look into truck driver regulations.  We’re also looking at tired drivers.  In addition to the truck vs. RV accident, police say a woman may have fallen asleep before her car crashed into a local business Wednesday.

We’ve brought you the stories of flooding from all across the state over the past couple months, so now we want to check in on these areas for an update.

Have a great weekend!

Morning Meeting: Earwigs & More

Apparently there’s a lot of talk about a pesky insect known as the “earwig” — supposedly the population is at peak levels — and people just want to get rid of them.  We pulled up some photos of the bug during the meeting and it was met by oohs and ahhs.  Are you noticing more earwigs this summer?

Today we’re working on several stories including:

- We have a crew on the way to an accident that has closed I-90 near the Bridgewater exit.  More details to come.

- We’re in Rosebud talking to a family who’s been displaced because of storm damage Monday night.

- Keeping your pets safe from lawn chemicals.  What may be helpful for your lawn can be dangerous to your pets.

- Mold has set in after recent flooding, so how do you get rid of it safely and effectively?
