4:14 am
the sun. earth's rotation is the day, got that straight. so, we got a quarter of a day that we gain, and every four years, and that means we get that extra day and that keeps the calendar in line with the seasons. toda, leap year comes in, saves the day, gives thaws extra day because we have that quarter of a day, every year, and then well, you did the math, right in did you get it? we will have it again before the morning is through. >> i'm confused can we start from the beginning and do it one more time. >> no. but you will see it again before 6:00 o'clock i promise. >> thank you. >> we will have some showers on the way today and then more rain on wednesday. today shouldn't be that big of a deal. by end of the morning early afternoon just a few showers rolling through but some have a cold front moving through and this is the third wednesday in the row for some showers, and probably a thunderstorm because we will have a a chance to build up milder air by then. so we could get rain, again,
