In case you missed it at 6:40 this morning, here's today's Smokin' stories:

1. Leo Powers, 23, of Abington, Massachusetts is facing a number of charges after cops say he used bombs to blow up snow banks so he didn't have to shovel them.

2. A 44-year-old New Zealand woman is partially paralyzed from a hickey that caused her to have a small stroke. After she got the hickey she couldn't move her left arm. Doctors say her hickey was near a major artery and there was a clot in the artery beneath it.
