Winter storm slams Michigan
A big winter storm has hit parts of the upper Midwest, including Michigan. There are hundreds of school closings across the state as wind and cold temperatures make a hard commute this morning for motorists. As the Associated Press reports:
"...a punishing Midwest winter storm pushed through the state, leaving at least two people dead and blacking out 105,000 homes and businesses. National Weather Service officials say high temperatures in the teens and wind gusts approaching 40 mph were expected Monday in Lower Michigan, where residents along southern Lake Michigan got upward of 20 inches of snow. About 7 inches fell in suburban Detroit."
Ann Arbor Public Schools, Jackson Public Schools, Lansing Public Schools, and Kalamazoo Public Schools are just some of the closed school districts across the state.
