Bitter Cold and Wind to Bring Dangerous Below Zero Wind Chills Into Sat. Morning

Strong low presure in the Gulf of Maine through Saturday will continue to cause wind gusts locally from 30-35 mph through Saturday afternoon.  The wind in combination with the bitterly cold air in place will drop wind chills to -15 to -25 degrees at times through Saturday morning easing slightly to between -10 and -15 Saturday afternoon as temperatures climb from morning lows near zero into the low to mid teens. Dress appropriately for the cold wearing layers, a hat and mittens and covering exposed skin surfaces to reduce the chance for frost bite which can develop in as little at 15-20 minutes on exposed skin surfaces.

Bottom Line: Facebook Scam

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:17 PM EDT
Could getting your regular Facebook fix soon cost you cash?
        
Some
users are wondering whether that's the case, because of a message that's been
circulating the site.        
        
It's a Bottom Line Alert, and
here's what CBS 6's Dori Marlin found out about it:

The message tells
users that Facebook has a new "membership price grid" with different tiers -
including gold, silver and bronze.

It then tells the user that if they
don't share the message with Facebook friends by midnight, they'll be forced to
pay the next time they sign on.
        
The Bottom Line?  The message is
a scam.
        
Facebook has said a number of times now, the site will
always be free for users.

So if anyone on Facebook says you have to pay
to play on the site, don't believe it - and don't give out any money.

If
there's something you'd like to get The Bottom Line on, send Dori an e-mail
about it: The address is thebottomline@cbs6albany.com.Bottom Line: Facebook Scam
