Morning Start: The famous “Green Eggs and Ham” originated from a bet…

Your morning start for Tuesday, January 7, 2020.

We bet you’re missing the warm sunshine right about now…

Fun Fact of the day:

Have you read Dr. Seuss’s famous “Green Eggs and Ham?”

Dr. Seuss wrote “Green Eggs and Ham” on a bet that he couldn’t write a book with 50 or fewer words. The bet was made in 1960 with Bennett Cerf, the co-founder of Random House, and was for $50 (estimated $382 today). Of course, Dr. Seuss who is also known as Theodore Geisel won the bet and created an all-time favourite and his best-selling work that would later go on to become a popular animated Netflix series. Side-note: Bennett Cerf never paid up, but Dr. Seuss made a huge winning on it anyways.

Weather forecast according to Environment Canada:

Forecasted snow will keep piling up throughout the Okanagan regions until later this afternoon when mixed precipitation begins and continues overnight.
