foundation of machine-made snowpack. but it needs to get a bit cooler for snow guns to cover the whole mountain. last year the poconos struggled amid one of the warmest decembers in history. the resorts say this season things are looking better as soon as it stays cold. >> anybody who enjoys snow sports is real eager after the short type of season we had last year, the whole region was affected. so, yeah, i think we're ready. >> blue mountain is hoping to ep its slopes on december 9th. big boulder opens this weekend. but just a couple of trails. but mild temperatures, of course, some rain dominating the forecast right now. erika martin, will they stick around for the morning? >> we do have mild conditions, but i'm ready for the snow, keith. a live look outside. we do have drier conditions right now. if you look at the bottom of your screen, you will see your local fabd forecast. it's quiet right now in philadelphia, but we were seeing some scattered showers earlier. otherwise, current temperatures in the neighborhood or mainly seeing some mid-40s.

message telling them to wait ten seconds and then try again. other customers had problems adding items to their online shopping carts. macy's blamed the issues on number of high online orders. there has been a lot of talk about all of that fake news that americans have been seeing on facebook and whether it impacted the election. well, turns out some of that fake news may have come from russia. according to "the washington post," a group of independent researchers found that a sophisticated russian propaganda effort may have been aimed at hurting hillary clinton and helping donald trump. switching gears now, a story that you really can't miss. one of my favorite of the day. it all started with an accidental text message, and it ended in an open invitation. why one woman welcomed a complete stranger to dinner with open arms, and the message they hope their chance meeting will send this holiday season.
an arizona grandmother who actually invited a stranger to thanksgiving dinner ended up making good on that invitation. you probably saw the pair's viral text message. wanda thought she was texting her granld actually messaging 17-year-old jamal hinton. however, even after they figured out the mixup, she still said the teen was welcome to come over for thanksgiving. so he took her up on her offer. now they hope their chance meeting inspires some love this holiday season. great story there. john clark is up next with sports.
