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
