Laurie Cataldo

Hey, it's Laurie...check me out weekdays from 10-3p, doing everything I can to make your workday better! In the studio you'll usually find me reading news articles of all kinds, while singing along to whatever song is playing. Outside the studio, I love good food, Penn State (class of '07!), The Real Housewives franchises (guilty pleasure), and brilliant sunsets. I'm also dying to be on a game show -- I'd rock Wheel of Fortune. I'm a local girl; I'm currently living in Red Bank, but grew up in Marlboro. Something on your mind? Let me know about it anytime at 732-988-POINT or!

Fast forward to today, when I felt the floor start to shake. But was it an actual earthquake?

That's when it's time to forget the real snowballs, and head inside to spend your snow day making snowball cookies!

How to Prepare for Coastal Flooding at the Jersey Shore

One of the big concerns with this weekend's Nor'easter is the potential for coastal flooding, especially because tides will already be high from Saturday's full moon.

Meal Ideas If There’s a Power Outage in NJ This Weekend

I'm still trying to hold out hope that this weekend's Nor'easter is a bust (come onnnn Heat Miser), but it's looking likely that we're going to get a good amount of snow, and at the very least, very strong winds and coastal flooding are likely.
