Good Morning: Ducks and Wings

Quack, quack. That's what you're going to be thinking Tuesday and Wednesday, as rain -- very heavy, nasty, miserable, soaking rain -- starts Tuesday afternoon and continues into Wednesday. There's a flash flood watch already in effect for our area. And the temperature: mid-50's at best. Rainy and cold: The ducks might not even like it on Tuesday and Wednesday.

For some reason, people have a hard time visualizing rainfall amounts. But if tomorrow's rain was turned into snow, we'd be looking at about a foot and a half of snow.

On this day in 1972, the BBC banned the song Hi, Hi, Hi by Wings because of alleged suggestive lyrics.  The BBC said that the phrase, "get you ready for my body gun" wasn't right for radio. Paul McCartney said that the BBC misheard the lyrics, which were, "get you ready for my polygon."
