Jack Morgan has spent 35 years in electronic media doing both television and radio.

In his mid 20s he was known as Robbin Banks at two San Angelo FM stations but the bulk of his career has been spent at PBS stations -- from Austin's KLRU, Orlando's WMFE, Burlington's Vermont Public Television, and San Antonio's KLRN.

At KLRN he spent 5 years as director of production where he was responsible for three hour-long programs with the San Antonio Symphony. Jack was also responsible for KLRN's ARTS program during its startup, and co-produced Texas Week With Rick Casey.

Thirty-two years ago Thursday something pretty dramatic happened in San Antonio Weather.

"We saw up to 13 and 1/2 inches of snow that fell in a 24-hour period...easily shattering and breaking the previous record of only 5 inches," says the National Weather Service's Jason Runyen.

Runyen is a long-time San Antonian, and he remembers it from the standpoint of an 8-year-old.

"We were building a snowman, I remember sledding down the street. We did get a snow day, so Monday we were out of school," he says.

With the unusually cold weekend coming National Weather Service Meteorologist Bob Fogarty says of major concern -- after tropical plants and house pets -- are water pipes.

 

“The pipe issue is going to be more of a concern now because we're going to have a long period where we're below freezing,” Fogarty says. “With pets and plants--we're more concerned with them even if it just gets to freezing...but it takes a while for water to freeze.”

The Symphony of the Hills has its first concert of the new year this Saturday night.  If you don't know them, the Symphony of the Hills is situated in Kerrville, but people come from all around to hear symphonic music they won't otherwise hear. Gene Dowdy is its conductor.

"We're very proud that people come from all over: Junction, Hunt, Harper, Fredericksburg, Comfort, Boerne. People drive from San Antonio; I've got friends who come up, watch the shows."
