Harford County officials warned residents of hypothermia and other dangers in light of record-setting cold temperatures Monday and Tuesday, and there was more concern about the abnormally cold temperatures overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning. The county was hit by bitter cold that started Monday night, with temperatures plummeting into the low single digits and the wind chill making it feel as cold as 15 degrees below zero overnight. Temperatures were reported as low as 1 degree or zero overnight Monday, and though it was sunny throughout the day Tuesday, high temperatures barely reached above 10 degrees in and around Bel Air. The impending cold forced Harford County Public Schools to cancel all classes Tuesday.

One day in 1870, 41 newly freed slaves got together in Jackson, Miss., to establish a new branch of mainstream Methodism called the Colored Methodist Episcopal Church. Hundreds of members of that denomination, now known as the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, gathered at the Baltimore Convention Center Friday to consecrate the 61st, 62nd and 63rd bishops in its history. A two-hour service marked the end of the historically black denomination's weeklong general conference, a convention members hold every four years to choose new leaders and weigh doctrinal changes.

Without snowfall or ice on the roads, decisions by several Maryland school systems to cancel schools during a recent cold snap perplexed many. The polar vortex brought frigid arctic air into most of the country, and many schools in Baltimore and the region canceled or delayed classes — a measure aimed at keeping students warm and avoiding facility problems. Harford County Public Schools were among those closed Tuesday, when temperatures were in the single digits. The school system also had two-hour delays on Monday and Wednesday.

Not since Richard Nixon assured an audience of newspaper editors in 1973 that "I am not a crook" has a major political figure so conspicuously defended his character as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has done in declaring, "I am not a bully. " The governor's remark in a mea culpa news conference in Trenton came in the context of the brouhaha over the closing of George Washington Bridge traffic lanes into the town of Fort Lee on the Jersey side. It was ordered by Mr. Christie aides as a vengeful act against the town's Democratic mayor, who had not supported the governor's re-election campaign last year.

After all that happened during the game's first 59 minutes - the near two-hour weather delay, the conditions that were the worst that most of them had ever played in, the swings of momentum - the Ravens had the ball at the Chicago Bears' 5-yard line with a chance to win the game. “Everybody wants to get seven points there, and the freaking game is over,” Ravens right guard Marshal Yanda said. Rendered ineffective all season, the Ravens' running game was finally picking up chunks of yards.

Did you hear that? It was the collective cry of dismay from working parents across Baltimore County who learned this morning that schools would be closing two hours early today -- and that after-care would be canceled -- because of excessive heat. This is one of the reasons I used to always wonder: How do families manage when both parents work full time? And how in the world do single parents do it? Well, thanks to my laptop and understanding bosses and colleagues (flattery gets me everywhere)
