About that icy grip

Posted By on Thu, Jan 7, 2010 at 7:32 AM

All those people who were madly clearing shelves in my neighborhood Kroger last night?

They'll have to wait until after work to do anything with their stockpiles.

As you can see here in Pulaski County, the weather disaster didn't arrive. Serious cold air is coming still, but not ice and snow.

BY THE WAY: The city of Little Rock opened at 4 p.m. Wednesday a 24-hour "warming center" in the Nathaniel Hill Community Center on East Sixth Street. It will remain open as a shelter through noon Monday, Jan. 11.

NEWS RELEASE

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
