Max Armstrong talks about the weather, pork production in China and Halloween. (audio)

This time of the year in Denver Colorado its usually about 60 degress, yesterday there was a high of 18. Valentine, Nebraska, you’re down into the single digits. It will be back into the 50s by this weekend. Sioux Falls should be back to the 40s by the weekend.

Have you heard some big city hospitals in our region have turned away ambulances. Little record-keeping of this. Reporter cited 21 instances were ambulance diverted with serious consequences to the patient. Of the 21 cases used as examples, one case was in 1990. I think the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel writer needs more compelling news of problem.

Some pork analysts and traders say pork production will be down 65% in China next year. Others say could turn around quickly.

68% of us are celebrating Halloween and $390 million will be spent on Halloween greeting cards. Who sends cards?
