It's tough to get by on only $7 million

Now hold much are you bringing home from your job? Thank goodness I really like my job but If I made more money that certainly wouldn't what I mean....

Hoda Kotb's got Matt Lauer's job, but not his salary.

The 53-year-old has officially replaced Lauer as the host of the Today show after he was fired for sexual misconduct in the workplace. Talking to People magazine, she says she and co-anchor Savannah Guthrie won't be making Matt's reported $20 million a year. “The answer is no — that’s not happening,” Hoda says. “For either of us.”

The women are reportedly each making $7 million. Which ain't chicken feed.

But for Hoda it's not about the money. She says, "I really have done jobs I liked for the job ... because I never wanted to be happy every other Friday on pay day. Like, I didn’t want that to be the happy day. I wanted to feel good throughout."

According to Business Insider, Megyn Kelly makes $18 million a year, Kelly Ripa earns $22 million and Good Morning America co-hosts Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos take in $15 million and $18 million, respectively. Daytime TV's best paid-hosts are both women: Judge Judy ($47 million) and Ellen DeGeneres ($50 million).

It's Going to be a Chilly Winter!

What's the weather going to be like this winter? Well if you're hoping for mild and warm, you may be disappointed in the weather outlook from Al Dutcher, State Climatologist with UNL. Farmers, businessmen and others interested in what we'll see this winter came to Dutcher's presentation at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce on Thursday. 
Al started out his presentation by reviewing how the weather has been so far this fall and winter, and compared it to last year. This year’s La Nina event is much stronger than last year and expected to last longer.
Many people have commented on the recent stretch of dry weather we've been seeing in our region of Nebraska as of late, but Dutcher explained we received almost all of our fall precipitation during the month of October. 
Al said the La Nina pattern will keep dry conditions south of Nebraska, which will continue to expand the  drought in those areas. 
Dutcher says when looking at the La Nina event that we are currently experie…
