Joe tests a new way to keep warm

Public education is heading in a different direction in Texas.  A new plan for high school graduation is giving you and your children more choices about how to prepare for the future. Tonight at 10, Summer Dashe will have a new report that explains what is in store for the coming year and exactly how it could affect your family, especially if you have middle schoolers.

It's plenty cold and doesn't feel like it's going to warm up anytime, soon.  But, we don't have to guess about how cold it's going to get or how long this cold snap will last.  That's because Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto is in the Storm Tracker 7 Weather Center putting together a new forecast.  Watch tonight at 10 and he'll let you know exactly what you can expect from the weather where you live.

Now that it's cold you may need a little extra heat to keep your hands warm.  Joe Terrell is ready to help out by testing a product that promises to keep your fingers toasty warm.  Watch tonight's new Does it Work report to see if the Zippo hand warmer works.  It's hard to believe but we're letting Joe play with fire in this one.  See how far we're willing to go to make sure you get the best information?
