Angela Lautner knew her thirst was unusual, even for someone directing airplanes, outside in the Memphis summer heat.

"We had coolers of Gatorade and water for people to always have access to," Lautner remembers of her job as a ground services agent. "But the amount of thirst that I felt was just incredible."

She had no appetite and she lost an unusual amount of weight. Then after a trip to the emergency room, Lautner, who was 22, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. The diagnosis was life changing.

We know we need to exercise for our health, but a lifelong exercise habit may also help us feel younger and stay stronger well into our senior years.

Up to a foot of snow — and possibly more — is expected to fall through Sunday night across the southern Appalachians and nearby foothills in North Carolina and Virginia.

"Some places might get what the equivalent of a year of snowfall is for that area," David Roth, a forecaster with the Weather Prediction Center, told NPR. "I would think this will end up being a historic storm for southwest Virginia and western North Carolina."
