We have to start with the so far miraculous recovery of Josh Woodward, a firefighter at the airport and a volunteer in North Bethlehem who thought he had a pulled muscle but ended up with a life-threatening sepsis infection. His wife Chelsea says doctors told her Friday there was only a five percent chance he would survive -- and a good chance he would not survive the weekend.Josh and Chelsea have two kids ages 5 and 3. Chelsea says they've been blown away by the tidal wave of support the family has received including a GoFundMe effort that's raised well over $50-thousand dollars so far.
A bunch of volunteers just set up a local chapter of a group that builds and delivers free beds to families with kids in need. A group in Mechanicville and Saratoga has joined "Sleep in Heavenly Piece". They cut their own wood for the headboards and bed frames, come up with the mattresses and bed sheets, assemble and deliver them. "Sleep in Heavenly Piece" has about 140 chapters in 40 states and is always needs donations of money and mattresses.

And finally, in Seattle a bunch of police officers were out patrolling, when they saw some kids having a snowball fight... and they decided to join in. Not only that, but they also broke out their tactical gear for it. But, they were forced to retreat because they were outnumbered.
